This year’s Common Reading book at Carleton is Mountains Beyond Mountains. It’s a biography of Paul Farmer, a doctor specializing in infectious disease, who works with the poorest people around the world. I picked it up this evening as I was nursing Zoe to sleep. I read about the sick, impoverished children at his Haitian clinic, and then looked down at my quietly sleeping, well-fed daughter. We’re so lucky.
