At The Sunday Paper, we want to inspire you to gather at your table—virtually or with friends and family—and open your heart and mind to conversations that will move the needle. After all, the dinner table is where we connect on topics and map out the changes we can all make that’ll truly make an impact.

This week, to encourage your conversations, we recommend checking out the following:

What We're Reading:

After hitting rock bottom in her 20s, author Roxie Nafousi saw an opportunity to change everything. She began expressing herself through writing and eventually found happiness and purpose. She believes that people learn from good times, not rough times. In her new book Manifest: 7 Steps to Living Your Best Life, Nafousi provides the tools you need to reach a positive state of mind and manifest the life of your dreams. The first step? Be clear in your vision.

You can purchase Nafousi’s book here.

What We're Listening To:

Our democracy is under attack. Rachel Maddow reminds us of this in her new podcast "Ultra." The progressive news host reflects on a forgotten history and what it takes to preserve our country. Episode 1: Trip 19 discusses the turbulent time following the plane crash that killed Senator Ernest Lundeen. Episode 2: The Brooklyn Boys dives into the domestic threat Father Charles E. Coughlin organized with an attempt to overthrow the government. Listen to the episodes here.

What We're Watching:

Grief and loss are personal journeys. At 92, Eli Tomoner, the creator of Air Florida, decided to end his life under the California End of Life Option Act. "I wanted to bottle him up,” his daughter Ondi Timoner told The New York Times. “I was terrified to not hear his voice again." A filmmaker, Ondi decided to document the last moments of her father's life. The result is her film, Last Flight Home. Variety described the film as “a tribute, a grappling with mortality, an exercise in self-surveillance, a messy home movie, a brief account of aviation history and a lesson in letting go and grief.”

Watch the trailer below.
