The Sunday Long Read, 12/8/19

Happy Sunday! This week we’ve got an overstuffed list to share. It’s also our last standard edition of 2019. Next week, we’ll unveil our Best of 2019 issue, based largely on the stories our readers couldn’t get enough of over the course of this insane unending sprint of a year.

Our members will then get another bonus newsletter over our Holiday break (thanks again to all of our new supporters who joined us over the Thanksgiving break, by the way!). You can sign up here to support the SLR and get those extra picks.

Lastly, as we begin turning our attention to 2020, an annual reminder to consider checking out Boston University’s Power of Narrative conference, which we proudly sponsor every year. This year’s theme is “Telling true stories in turbulent times.” Fitting, no?
