"I have always been too sensitive, a weeper / from a long line of weepers," writes Limón. "I am the hurting kind." What does it mean to be the hurting kind? To be sensitive not only to the world's pain and joys, but to the meanings that bend in the scrim between the natural world and the human world?
 
With Limón's remarkable ability to trace thought, The Hurting Kind explores those questions - incorporating others' stories and ways of knowing, making surprising turns, and always reaching a place of startling insight. Along the way, we glimpse loss. But The Hurting Kind is filled, above all, with connection and the delight of being in the world.
 
Ada Limón: June 1, 2022, 6pm Live on Zoom

About The Author

Sally’s mission as Porchlight’s Managing Director is to make Porchlight a great place to work for employees, and a consistently high-performing customer service organization for everyone in or orbiting the publishing industry. She also has a not-so-secret penchant for business strategy and contemplating the history and evolution of business, both as a socio-economic force and a literary genre. When she can find the time, she reads, writes, reviews, and edits alongside the company’s marketing team. Helping craft three editions of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time utilized both skill sets. Outside of work, she is most likely to be hitting a tennis ball around or hanging out with her boys (husband, child, dog) at home.
