Let’s read great articles and talk about them!
Hi there, I’m Mark Isero, editor of The Highlighter, a weekly newsletter that features the best articles on race, education, and culture.
Over the years, we’ve built a strong reading community. But now we want a dedicated space to discuss the articles in depth and build empathy with other thoughtful readers.
I hope you’ll join me at Article Club, a new experiment in community reading.
Each month, we’ll focus our attention on one great article. Every Sunday, I’ll send out a post geared to spark thought and conversation. Here’s how a typical month will look:
Week 1: Reading and annotating the article together
Week 2: Sharing our first impressions, questions, and topics we want to explore
Week 3: Listening to the author’s perspective on the article
Week 4: Participating in an in-person or online discussion
Thank you for your interest! If you have ideas or suggestions, email me.
