Let’s read great articles and discuss them 📖

Hi there, I’m Mark Isero. I’m an educator from the Bay Area who believes deeply in the power of reading — for both young people and adults.

Nine years ago, I launched a weekly newsletter that features the best articles on race, education, and culture. We built a strong reading community of kind, curious people.

Then about four years ago, we expanded the project. Now we’re Article Club, a dedicated space to discuss the best articles in depth with other thoughtful readers.

I hope you’ll join me in this experiment in community reading.

Every Thursday, you’ll receive my favorite 1-4 articles of the week. They’ll spark new thinking. They’ll expand your empathy. And at least one of them will help you pause for a bit, nudge you to reflect, and urge you to think about the bigger things in life.

In addition, every month, we’ll focus our attention on one great article. This is our typical flow:

  • Week 1: We sign up and begin reading the article on our own.

  • Week 2: We annotate the article together and share our first impressions.

  • Week 3: We listen to an interview of the author.

  • Week 4: We discuss the article together, on Zoom or in person.

Thank you for your interest! Please reach out if you have any questions.
