Time for Uncle “Taverner’s” reading list for young persons

by RadioFreeCalifornia


Each of these books affected me in a way that still shows up in my thought patterns, my concerns and my little empathies.

All of them deal with the human condition in some way or another.

My hope is that all people, not just young, enjoy these as did I.
