We asked and you answered! Here we will share books, podcasts, activities, and other suggestions from our CUPPA community to help us cope with COVID-19.

I wanted to recommend another book for quarantine reading – “Golden Gates” by Conor Dougherty which talks about the housing crisis in the Bay Area of California. It does a great job of describing the history of housing and incorporates personal stories about housing in America and specifically from people living in and around San Francisco. As a Californian, this one is close to my heart!

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve been bombarded with news on the subject. Yes, we should stay up to date and stay informed. But, it’s prudent to take a break. Here’s how I “get away from it all” during this pandemic: Read literature from another era. Currently, I’m reading “The Literature of America: Twentieth Century”, a book of short stories, essays, and poetry. I’m reading some works from authors who were familiar to me in name only. In doing so, I take a mental vacation — one that compels me to focus, learn and absorb aspects of life and the world around us that have nothing to do with what the world is facing today.
