Sending Holiday Cheer

Every fall Wg selects a current-year release as our holiday book. It's a special tradition that allows us to share our appreciation—and deliver a mid-winter read—to our network of friends.

HOLIDAY GIFT TRADITION

2015 highlighted Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York: Stories. In flashes of text and imagery, Stanton lets us glimpse the rich and varied human experience—an invitation to understand life through the eyes of another.
