Today we welcome author and decluttering expert Chirstine Platt, also known as The Afrominimalist. We talk today about Christine’s latest book The Afrominimalist’s Guide to Living with Less. We discuss mistakes, embracing our own unique aesthetics and culture while practicing minimalism, and how the language around minimalism doesn’t have to be so scary.
The Stacks Book Club selection for July is The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui. We will discuss the book with Mira Jacob on Wednesday July 28th.
