It’s been a busy week here!

What’s happening at home/school/life


Links I liked

  • I like this take on why the ending of “A Series of Unfortunate Events” the Netflix series is a little less open-ended than the books.

  • All the mentions of Edward Gorey in The New York Times!

  • This is one of those things that makes you happy to be a reader: Who killed Edwin Drood? Some Dickens fans decide to bring the case to trial.

  • A medieval scribe — who also happens to be a woman — gets a little long overdue credit.

  • Classic literature is complicated by racism, sexism, xenophobia, and all kinds of othering. And yet, many of these classics have stood the test of time for good reasons. I believe completely in building a new canon that incorporates meaningful diversity, but this piece about reading as time traveling captures a lot of my ambivalence about letting go of the classics completely.

  • BE STILL MY HEART.
