Karen’s weekly video message to her fellow book lovers.

This week on Books at 60, Karen introduces two new reviewers: long-time Starts at 60 blogger Jacqui Lee and Margaret Whitley, as well as discussing six recent book reviews, all of which exhibit some type of bravery or courage within their pages. Particularly poignant is ‘Everybody Brave is Forgiven’ by Chris Cleave, which is a most unusual WWII romance.

Bravery and courage are not only for those in the front lines. When somebody faces their own mortality like Cory Taylor in her biographical book ‘Dying: A memoir’, it reminds us that there are many types of courage.
