The spring '22 Reading Room theme is Healing

In acknowledgement of the trying times we've endured and the strength we've shown, the Reading Room is opening this spring term with a collection of materials following the theme of Healing. 

Healing can refer to the physical process of repair, the emotional process of finding safety and comfort, or the personal journeys taken to find stability. More than these processes, though, healing can be defined by what it means to you.
