Fascinating Finds

Friday, September 11, 2020

I hope everyone has had a good week! Our big plans for the weekend involve watching West Virginia (finally!) play football tomorrow. (We won't be watching Michigan, though!) Also, today is the fourth anniversary of Joe and my first date! We are thinking we might take Bert out this evening for an early pizza dinner to celebrate. (And it sure beats where we were this time last year.) 

Here are some interesting articles and stories I've collected for you this week:

- Here is a link to a beautiful poem about 9/11 by poet Billy Collins. May we never forget.

- These are the most stylish face masks, according to Vogue. 2020 is weird. 

- 16-year-old Dara McAnulty has become the youngest writer ever to be longlisted for the UK’s most prestigious nonfiction award, the Baillie Gifford prize, for his book Diary of a Young Naturalist, which he began writing at the age of 14.

- A new movie adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca is coming to Netflix October 21. It's hard to believe anything could be as good the Hitchcock classic starring Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier (which received 11 Academy Award nominations), but I'll give it a go for sure. You can check out the trailer here. (How terrifying is Kristin Scott Thomas?!)

- Proof that God doesn't always answer prayers exactly how you'd expect! 

- A defense of one of Jane Austen's most exasperating characters. 

- The moon is rusting, and it's our fault. 

Some past posts you may have missed:

- A book that we could all use

Have a great weekend!
