Book Your Stocking with Ben Cartwright

Book Your Stocking 2021

 Book Your Stocking: Day 8

This year, avid readers were asked to recommend a book, story, poem, OR song. Ben Cartwright is both today's word-consultant and the first to rise up and say, Listen to this song, friends.

And so we shall. 



Recommendation: [song] "God Lifts Up the Lowly" by Ezra Furman

Why: Hope requires toughness and resolve for individuals and folks trying to organize, and this song conveys the type of hope that won't lay down or quit.


About today's reader: Ben Cartwright is a poet and a teacher.
