The Books Helping Us Escape Right Now
There may be no better time than winter to cozy up, ideally by a fire, with a stack of books and a cup of coffee (or something a little stronger). This particular winter, though, the escape and education we find through books will be even more necessary. Whether you're picking up books for yourself or sending hefty hardcovers to family and friends as holiday gifts, we have some suggestions that will distract, entertain, and inform—all by female writers spread across the world. (Translated Japanese authors were surprisingly popular this episode.) Joining us to share their favorite recent reads are Riverhead Books' associate publisher Jynne Dilling-Martin and Kalima DeSuze, activist and founder of the Cafe con Libros bookstore in Brooklyn.  Here's a full list of what we talked about: Oreo, by Fran Ross Lobizona, by Romina Garber The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jemisin The Memory Police, by Yoko Ogawa Convenience Store Woman, by Suyaka Murata Tokyo Ueno Station, by Yu Miri The Custom of the Country, by Edith Wharton The Lying Life of Adults, by Elena Ferrante The Neapolitan Novels, by Elena Ferrante The Japanese Table, by Sofia Hellsten Luster, by Raven Leilani Hurricane Season, by Fernanda Melchor Read a transcription of the episode here: https://www.cntraveler.com/story/the-books-helping-us-escape-right-now-women-who-travel-podcast Follow Kalima's Cafe con Libros: @cafeconlibros_bk Follow Jynne: @jynnnne Follow Lale: @lalehannah Follow Meredith: @ohheytheremere All products featured on Condé Nast Traveler are independently selected by our editors.

Tory Burch on Finding Purpose in Female Empowerment
The American designer discusses the power of many businesses to be advocates for change. The last few years have offered Tory Burch, founder of her namesake womenswear label, time to focus less on business and more on design, particularly since her husband Pierre-Yves Roussel took on the role of chief executive in 2018. Now, the pandemic is giving her even more time to focus on perfecting product, a rare silver lining of an otherwise challenging situation. In the latest episode of the BoF Podcast, BoF editor-at-large Tim Blanks speaks with Burch about her activist-focused approach to business and how the last 10 months have shaped her fashion label. * Restriction is a crucial component of creativity. To Burch, the travel restrictions and social distancing measures have opened new avenues of creativity, fostering agility and resourcefulness. “One thing that’s happened because of lockdown is it makes you stand still,” said Burch. “To be able to be in one place has been really transformative on many levels.” * Burch emphasises that what constitutes luxury needs to be reconsidered. “I really believe luxury isn’t about a price point, and I think that’s relatable particularly today,” she said. “How do you design beautiful things that are timeless and that will last? That’s what I’ve been thinking about,” she said, adding that having time to spend is the ultimate luxury. * Through the Tory Burch Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to advancing women’s empowerment, Burch is finding new avenues through which to support women and help them weather the coronavirus crisis. “Its horrendous for women right now,” said Burch. “They are taking care of children at a much higher rate than men. We have had to help many women figure out how to take out PPP loans… We had to pivot to really be a resource for women.” Related Articles:Tory Burch Names Pierre-Yves Roussel CEOIndependent Women Brought Hope to Fashion’s Virtual SpringVisual Metaphors at Tory Burch Watch and listen to more #BoFLIVE conversations here.
