Happy Friday, readers! It’s June, which means I’m already preparing my Fourth of July-themed edition of the newsletter. The holiday allows me get real nerdy about American history, so I always relish it. This year I’m diving into Thomas Jefferson’s complicated legacy with a couple Pulitzer-winning books. Stay tuned!
Thanks, Jeremy! The Katy Tur book will be a surprise Father’s Day gift for Paul— he’s a KT fan. I’m wishing I had Book Lovers RIGHT NOW! I am at “the cabin” and awake way too early. It would be the perfect diversion to the heaviness of today’s news. I think I’ll see you later this weekend.
Thanks for the recommendation! As someone who has done some degree of journalism before realizing it wasn't the ideal career for him (for a variety of reasons, pay being a significant one of them), I still find myself glued towards anything (movies, books, documentaries) that focuses on journalism. I'll be sure to give that book a read. :)
