Time for Friday Reads! Here’s what we’re working on:
Arts Editor Tom Cole:
I’m reading Tim Gautreaux’s recent collection of short stories, Signals.
He’s such a great writer. Just
finished one called “Radio Magic” about a guy who wants to be famous and an
elderly comedienne who remembers her late son (a radio repairman) saying that
sound never ends – that it keeps going out to the stars. Of course we all know
that in space “no one can hear you scream,”
but it’s still kind of neat to think that all of our work is sailing out
NPR Executive Editor Edith Chapin:Janesville:

Quinn: I’m reading David Sedaris’ Theft
by Finding: Diaries for a review next week, plus The Handmaid’s Tale for my book club.
a delightful one with my favorite gent. we went on a six mile trail run, had a couple lazy coffee + breakfast mornings at home, took riley for walks, went down to the coast to spend time with my parents + brother, passed a gorgeous day at the beach followed by grilling + cocktails by dad, ate from some favorite carrboro food trucks, met up with friends at steel string brewery, tested out bikes at bullseye bikeshop, watched a movie, and visited durty bull brewery for the first time. as usual, we schemed ways for the departing person to “miss” their flight.
Morning you beautiful lot!!
Maybe it’s last night’s alcohol but this morning I feel cute. So selfie time. 😋
What are you lot up today? It’s bank holiday Monday tomorrow here in the UK, so what are you doing with the extra day off? 😃
