#242: Full-Timing Families 🚐
By Mark Isero • Issue #247 • View online
It’s Thursday, loyal readers, which means it’s time for another installment of great articles on race, education, and culture. Thank you for being an important part of our reading community!
Today’s issue explores two trends emerging from the pandemic. The first is the growing desire to escape our cooped-up conditions and to branch out into the wider world. The second is the increasing reliance on technology and its questionable impact on identity and humanity. If you want more lighthearted, go with the first pair of articles; if you want more serious, go with the second pair. As for my favorite this week, I can’t decide between “The Rise of Full-Timing Families” or “What Happens After You Get Rich Quick?” They will elicit various emotions. Please enjoy!
+ Congratulations to Nikole Hannah-Jones for winning her first Pulitzer Prize for commentary. Her winning essay was the lead article in Issue #205 last August. Ms. Hannah-Jones is, in my mind, the best writer right now on race and education.
+ I’d like to see more of you try out Article Club this month. Go ahead, take the leap! We’re discussing “Lost in Summerland,” by Barrett Swanson, a powerful story about two brothers, mental illness, psychic powers, summer camp, and painful secrets. You can learn more here and sign up for this month’s discussion.
