“I finally picked up ‘Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’ by Yuval Noah Harari after my dad wouldn’t stop talking about it. And now I can’t stop talking about it. Harari’s frankness reels me in. His high-level, jam-packed recap of human’s (short) history on earth is impressive. In an odd way, the book has been grounding during the pandemic. Plenty come before us in Earth’s story, and much will follow.” — MONIQUE CORNETT, Falmouth
