I love the “Best of…” lists that start coming out around this time of year. As an icebreaker for our Board meeting last week, as well as a means for members to get to know one another a little bit better, I asked each person to take a moment and share his/her favorite book, CD, or movie from the past year. I thought that NAHSL members might also like to get to know their Board members, too, so I decided to share our list here on the blog. Who knows? You may come across a good pick or two for 2013. I know that I did.

  1. I’ll “Like” these choices: Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Emperor of All Maladies, Just Kids, How Doctors Think– I read all of these is in 2012. And, The Harrow and the Harvest. My cousin, Luke Gilfeather, is thanked in the liner notes. He is a sound engineer at RCA Studio B in Nashville (if you ever want to cut a record…)
