Journeying Towards Light: Fiction and Poetry

In the midst of life’s upheavals, novelists and poets showcase a journey to hope and resilience. In Kate Atkinson’s brilliant “Behind the Scenes at the Museum,” she makes us cry, laugh, and ponder, juxtaposing the past’s inevitable influence on the present.
