Melinda Gates pairs her reading and her travel

In her just-published book, “The Moment of Lift,” philanthropist Melinda Gates recounts stories from her own life and her travels in this exploration of how empowering women improves societies.

As co-chair of the world’s largest private nonprofit, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, she has long fought for gender equity around the globe.

She and her husband, the founder of Microsoft, were recently named two of the world’s 50 greatest leaders by Fortune magazine.

GATES: “The Rosie Result,” the third book in a series by Graeme Simsion about a scientist with autism-spectrum disorder.

GATES: This wasn’t for research, but Mark Nepo’s “The Book of Awakening” had a big influence on me.

It was our 25th wedding anniversary recently, and we picked up “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles at the same time, which we enjoyed.
