Memoirs of Mental Health: Edward Enninful

A Visible Man by Edward Enninful was one of a few memoirs that I finished in December. The book is different from most of the memoirs I choose because I had no prior knowledge of who the author was; rather, Audible kept recommending it to me. I'm glad I gave his book a chance and I look forward to sharing...[ read more ]

Memoirs of Mental Health: Oprah Winfrey

I loved watching the docuseries, The Me You Can't See, produced by Oprah and Prince Harry.
