Why are there so many book clubs and so few article clubs? Let’s change that! Join The Highlighter Article Club, where we read, annotate, and discuss one outstanding article every month on race, education, or culture.
Episode details

This week we’re reading, listening to, and annotating “The Crow Whisperer,” by Lauren Markham — getting ready for our discussion on Sunday, May 23 at 2 pm PT.

Still want in on the discussion? Great! You can sign up here until May 18.

Coming up on Monday, we’ll get to listen to Ms. Markham talk about her article. This is thanks to her generosity and Article Clubber Sarai’s interviewing skills.

As a bonus, today I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to Article Clubber Molly, an outstanding reader, high school counselor, and mom. We go way back as friends and colleagues, and I’m extremely grateful that she’s part of our reading community.

In our conversation, Molly talks about her kids, the pandemic, her job, and her first impressions of the article. She also shares why she keeps coming back to Article Club. Please take a listen and say hi to Molly in the comments!
