Friday Fare: 10/5/18

This is an old piece that ran in January 2017, but it involves Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a handwritten note that she wrote to a little girl who dressed up as RBG on “superhero day.” RBG’s note to the girl included this quote from the Supreme Court Justice herself: “Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true.”

A free press is essential to the survival of democracy.  Good journalism is important.  Feature pieces can be sumptuous and feel like the visual equivalent of a five-course meal.  This was a cool piece about eight unsolved murders in Appalachia.

William Kent Krueger recently made some mystery recommendations.  My TBR (To Be Read) list just got longer.

Listening: Gregory Alan Isakov.  That is all.

Reading: Still reading Kara Richardson Whitely‘s memoir “The Weight of Being.”  Finished J.T. Ellison’s “Tear Me Apart” over the weekend.  I really think that this one was her best. 

Writing Life:

– Shelley

What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
