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:

Aging, illness, and breakups happen, and Dr. Susan Power is here to help. Her new book, Walking on Air: Embracing the Uncertainties of Life, will give you the courage to trust the journey and become more satisfied and inspired.

You might know her as Rachel Chu in Crazy Rich Asians and Jessica Huang in Fresh off the Boat. You might not know her as a girl from the suburbs of Virginia who was told to not make a scene growing up. In her memoir, Making a Scene, Wu candidly talks about family, romance, sex, shame, trauma, and how she found her voice.

What We're Listening To:

For many years now, we’ve heard about the power each of us has to manifest our wildest dreams. Love and life coach Francesca Hogi is a firm believer in this: She went from feeling rejected and frustrated to manifesting and meeting her life partner when walking down the street. In season 4 of her wildly popular Dear Franny Podcast: Uncommon Conversations About Love, Hogi teaches all of us how to manifest properly. We bet you’ll be hooked—and excited to explore her other seasons covering everything from dating skills and relationships to intimacy blind spots and spirituality.

What We're Watching:

Back in 2015, Pope Francis wrote an encyclical letter to remind us all about the urgency of our environmental crisis. This message is not new. Pope John Paul II wrote in his first encyclical letter that we seem to see no other meaning in our natural environment than what serves for immediate use and consumption. In A Message For Our Earth—a YouTube Original documentary—Pope Francis elevates unheard voices and shares solutions each of us can start implementing immediately to protect our precious planet.
