Hello, hello—it’s Monday once again, and here we are, and here’s a bunch of reading just for you:
At Postmodern Conservative, John Presnall is crying tears of blood, Pete Spiliakos is watching action movies, and Carl Scott has a new political interpretation of the Wizard of Oz. Kate Pitrone reminds us of beauty and wonders how to speak to the young.
Peter Leithart takes note of Stephen King’s review of Donna Tartt’s new novel, pays homage to the brilliant Frank Ramsey, is still reading a book about moderns, and mines N.T. Wright’s new book for “juicy little polemics.”
Here at First Thoughts, Greg Forster writes on the Common Core and Catholic education, and Sandra Laguerta draws attention to Fr. Maciej Zięba (who will be speaking at the First Things office in November).
We featured James D. Conley’s remarks from the “Life, Dignity, and Disability: A Faith That Welcomes” conference as rare Saturday On the Square. Today, you can read R.R. Reno on affirmative action, and then Timothy George on Hell Houses.
And that’s it! Welcome to the working week.
