ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB FACILITATOR

Holly Dowell was once called a "nonfiction queen" and she has proudly taken up the title. Within that genre, she typically reads lesser-known history, anything social scienc-y, and memoirs. When it comes to fiction, she has a soft spot for elderly protagonists and stories that involve resilience, hope, and honesty. Recommending books is Holly's love language.
