Happy Thursday, loyal readers. Thank you for being here. If you’re a new(ish) subscriber, welcome. I hope you come to like The Highlighter.
This week I’m trying something different: celebrating the writers who bring us these outstanding articles. Over the past two years, I’ve had the opportunity to interview talented authors, who generously participate in Article Club
, our thoughtful reading community that discusses one great article every month. It’s been an honor to speak with every single writer. This week, I want to share some of my favorite interviews with you.
You’ll hear from Brian Broome, Paul Tough, Stephanie McCrummen, Hafizah Geter, and Kathryn Schulz. They’re among the best writers out there – and they’re pretty great people, too. I encourage you to scan the blurbs, see which ones interest you, and take a listen to at least one of the interviews. My hope is that the conversations will inspire you to read the articles. They’re all outstanding.
+ If Article Club interests you, please sign up
. We’d be very happy to have you. It’s a month-to-month commitment. If you like the month’s article, you’re in for the discussion! If not, that’s OK, too.
+ Highlighter Happy Hour
is nearly sold out! HHH is a joyful gathering of our kind, thoughtful reading community. We’re meeting at Room 389 in Oakland on Thursday, March 3, beginning at 5:30 pm. There are four tickets left. Get yours here
