To listen: Sleater-Kinney's new album is out, and it will be on repeat in our house. The Center Won't Hold, available August 16th, is being described as "often gently sparse and hauntingly, beautifully electronic."
To read: About Toni Morrison's work behind-the-scenes, and how "ditorial work brought her inside the system. It made her both a gatekeeper and a force for change...She enriched the landscape of publishing through the books she shepherded into print, but just as importantly, she began to alter its image within."
