The Sunday Long Read, 12/13/20

It’s here—our Best Of edition and, yes, the end of 2020. Before we get to our favorite reads from the year plus your most clicked picks, three quick notes.

  1. Thanks to everyone that has shared the SLR with friends this year. This week is your last chance to share the newsletter with at least six people and let us know via e-mail or Twitter to be entered in our $250 giveaway and get a slot in our upcoming Sunday Shoutouts section. (If you have already done so but haven’t heard from us, please reach out!)
  2. This is our last regular edition of The Sunday Long Read until 2021, but SLR members should expect a bonus edition over the break featuring a round-up of our favorite pieces throughout 2020 (plus some of the best December has to offer). You can join here to be included and help support this ‘ol project of ours.
  3. Lastly, and most importantly, a hearty thanks are in order for our producers, Étienne, Emma, Joe, and Veronica, for making this week’s beast of an e-mail (and every email we send) possible.
