    Lidia had a dinner at Emma's Torch (Emma as in Emma Lazarus, whose sonnet appears on the Statue of Liberty) in NYC. Emma's Torch provides culinary training to refugees and survivors of human trafficking. Rachel Ray partnered with Emma's Torch to decorate and outfit their acclaimed restaurant in Brooklyn.

  • See: Lidia's Ted Talk: "The Beauty of Being a Misfit" Have a Look>

    In 2016, author Lidia Yuknavitch gave a TED talk entitled, "The Beauty of Being a Misfit." It's been viewed almost 4,000,000 times.

    In it, she describes her own wayward journey as a misfit and how she could not allow herself to accept the acclaim the book world was bestowing upon her. And she says, "If I could, I'd go back and I'd coach myself...I'd teach myself how to want things, how to stand up, how to ask for them. I'd say, 'You! Yeah, you! You belong in the room, too.' The radiance falls on all of us, and we are nothing without each other."

  • Do: Watch Our Virtual Book Launch Party with Lidia Watch>

    We had such a great conversation with VERGE Lidia Yuknavitch to celebrate the paperback publication of short stories.

    We talked about the beauty found at the edges and on the verge, misfits, the ACE score, John Legend, a touch of James Joyce and a splash of Shakespeare.
