• What’s Nate Reading This September?

    Welcome to your back to school reading list! Unlike the ones you grew up with, this Nate-curated September book round-up isn’t mandatory. No tests here, but every month Nate will be doing a little virtual book club on Instagram & he’d love to hear your take on the month’s round up.

     

    September’s picks include a mix that brings intrigue, laughs, and exploration into different parts of the country, of family life, – and, in a way, worlds. Let’s get started, shall we?

  • "Ready for an intense deep dive into family dynamics? Meet the Plumb siblings, who all grew up in the same house, but move very differently through life. A fascinating read, and ont that left me thinking about what kind of legacy we all leave our kids."

 

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

 

  • "I've always seen people as they wish to be seen, but reading this book made me stop and think about how well we all really know the ones we love – scary, but interesting stuff. It's lyrically written, with the framing of a mystery, and comes to a resolution I don't think anyone will see coming. I certainly didn't."

Watch Me Disappear: A Novel by Janelle Brown

  • "The author of this book grew up in the dead center of the rust belt, in a family that never could have imagined he'd end up a Yale graduate and financial planner. His vantage point on the American white working class and their general views on the workplace, government, and masculinity sheds light on an area of the country we tend not to hear about in such a deep and thoughtful way."

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance
