Thank you to the Lancaster Library System for hosting us with the great Kristin Hannah to discuss The Women. Over 2,000 readers joined us for a spectacular event to celebrate Kristin and her brilliant book. You can listen to the LIVE conversation now on You Are What You Read.

The Origin Project unveiled its 10th Anniversary special-edition cookbook this year at the John Fox Jr. Literary Festival at Mountain Empire Community College.
