Hey, hi! One of my goals this year is to newsletter monthly and blog weekly. The newsletter just went out, so this will be a shortish post. But the important thing is I’m here.
We’re a month out from the release of Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds. Preordering (or putting on hold at your library!) is caring.
What’s old is new, so I’m sharing a few links. These are a few pieces that resonated with me recently, plucked from my reading list tab and which are worth your time:
- You know that amazing nonfiction book, The Big Con? Well, it’s great. And now the also-great Sarah Weinman has a fascinating look at the author, David Maurer, and why the book’s still relevant.
- The classic Ricky Jay profile Mark Singer wrote for the New Yorker long ago, circulating widely again since the master magician’s death.
- Every Taffy Brodesser-Akner piece is essential reading, but her retrospective of Margot Kidder may be one of the most beautiful things you read this year. (I wrote about what Kidder’s Lois Lane meant to me for Salon shortly after her death.)
- Sara Benincasa made a reading list on witches. Need I say more?
Now go spend your weekend catching up on our new Cult Faves ep — a look at our favorite cult stories of 2018 — or dancing like a Congresswoman!
