#349: Time For A Change

The Highlighter
Next Thursday marks the seventh anniversary of The Highlighter. Thank you all for reading my newsletter week after week. There’s no way I could have predicted seven years, but thanks to your enthusiasm and loyalty, well, here we are. It’s been a great journey so far.
As we approach Issue #350, I’m happy to announce some changes that I hope you’ll like. The Highlighter will merge with Article Club, my other reading-related newsletter, to become one publication.
Maybe you can guess the new name? Yep, you got it: It’s The Highlighter Article Club. 😀
The goals will remain the same:
  • to share the best articles on race, education, and culture
  • to offer thought-provoking ideas from a variety of perspectives
  • to encourage us to read, reflect, and connect more deeply
But a few things will be different. For example, there will be a greater emphasis on each issue’s lead article. I’d like us to get into it, reflect on it, and share our thoughts about it with one another. And I want to experiment with more ways for us to connect and build our reading community. After all, our world might be a slightly better place if we read more good things and then talked about them with other thoughtful people.
Here’s the best news: You don’t have to do anything. There won’t be any clicking or resubscribing or filling out a survey. You’ll receive next week’s issue next Thursday at 9:10 am PT like normal. Be on the lookout for it! especially if the email gods conspire and send it to promotions.
All right, that’s enough housekeeping. Let’s get into this week’s issue!
