TADL #toread: Emilee Syrewicze

Emilee Syrewicze  is the Executive Director at Northwest Michigan Supportive Housing and was on the 2014 Forty Under Forty list for Traverse City Business News.  So we had to know just what she’s reading.


Here’s what Emilee had to say about her #toread stack:

“Reading is my favorite thing to do. Period. I LOVE IT!

I love to mix-up my reading (though I typically read books in the order in which I buy them).  A classic novel here, non-fiction there, and a biography thrown in once and a while for good measure.  Right now, I am reading a fantastic book about micro finance efforts in developing nations called If I Had a Water Buffalo by Marilyn A. Fitzgerald, Phd. (a local author,  philanthropist and fellow Rotarian).  I plan on re-reading Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner because I am a fanatic about water policy and the evolution of the water crisis in the American West, additionally it is a great historical read (not many people expect that, but it is full of interesting historical facts/stories).  I decided to throw in a classic (Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier) and a book I have wanted to read for about 10 years but am just now getting around to (Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond).  Finally, I cannot wait to read And the Mountains Echoed by one of my favorite authors of all time Khaled Hosseini (author of Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns).  I am convinced that Hosseini’s books should be read by every person alive.”
