Thank you for posting this! It is easy to forget the importance of finding the space to restore and reconnect. As well as the ways that stories influence our lives and grow us as human beings. I am inspired by your love for books! I think we could all benefit from giving ourselves permission to immerse ourselves in experiences rather than simply catching pieces when we can.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
