Two Brooklyn writers teach readers the power of ‘Yes’
We feel empowered and excited when we do things that challenge us.
And it’s all too easy to get stuck in a rut, and by accident, watch our worlds get smaller and smaller. Chicken Soup for the Soul noticed that its writers were fighting this impulse and using the power of “yes” to explore new things and challenge themselves!
“That’s how this book came about,” said Amy Newmark, publisher and editor-in-chief of the book series. “We saw so many stories from our contributors about challenging themselves to face their fears and try new things.
Linda Holland Rathkopf’s story “Gliding On” and Elana Rabinowitz’s “Pedal Power” are included in the book, which was released last month. Both authors are Brooklyn-based.
