Inspiring Books, Blogs, Websites, and Articles

Laura Aden Packer, Program Director, Arts

Over the summer, we asked several of our grantees to share their thoughts on a range of issues with us – Environment Program Director Michelle Knapik wrote about some of their responses in her three part series, “Road Trip! Creativity and Sustainability” (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3).

One of the question we asked had to do with what they had been reading – or books that had inspired them in one way or another. We received, as we expected, an eclectic mix of reading recommendations which we wanted to share with you.

You can see the list of books here, as well as a spreadsheet of interesting websites, blogs and articles here.

We’d love to know what you’ve been reading, too:  what books have changed your life or your perspective?

Special thanks to my colleague here at Dodge, Richard Simon, for compiling the bibliography. The blurbs and book jackets are courtesy of their respective publishers.

    This wonderful list of books inspires me to share my most recent, stunning “read,” — “Strength In What Remains” by Tracy Kidder (Random House, 2009). The power of this non-fiction narrative was heightened for me because the story is about Deogratias, a personal friend who we came to know through my husband’s work in Rwanda and Zaire. It is a remarkable journey that gives new meaning to many aspects of our lives that we sometimes (or often) take for granted.
