Julie Johnson Lindsey loves to read, particularly historical fiction and biographies. Recently she’s been reading “How to Live: Or A Life of Montaigne: In One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer” by Sarah Bakewell.
The book is about 16th century French philosopher Michel Eyquem de Montaigne.

It’s a philosophy Johnson Lindsey of Anacortes seems to live by, dipping her toes — sometimes actually getting in up to her neck — in activities from acting and directing at the Anacortes Community Theatre to giving to the community through Soroptimist International of Anacortes and the Anacortes Arts Festival.
