Coming in October 2020: HUMANS, the latest book from Brandon Stanton!

https://bit.ly/PreorderHumans

Five years ago I signed a contract for another book. The premise was simple: a collection of stories from around the world. The concept was quite easy to describe. But the creation proved much more difficult than I imagined. Even after fifty weeks of travel, it still didn’t seem like enough. I felt a lot of pressure to represent as many types of people as possible. So I asked my publisher for an extension. And another. Until here we are—two years past deadline, and it’s finally finished. But I think I can safely say: 'Humans' is the best book I’m capable of making. It’s 437 full-color pages. There are hundreds of stories from over forty countries-- about 15% of which are exclusive to the book. And since it’s curated rather than chronological, the book provides a different experience than looking at the blog. I was able to arrange the stories in interesting and surprising ways. My hope is that it feels like a tour of the world through the voices of random people. I also hope that the experience is especially meaningful in this time of restricted travel and increased isolation. Humans officially comes out October 6th. But if you definitely plan on getting a copy—I hope you’ll consider preordering now. Booksellers look closely at preorder numbers, so it always helps to make a strong showing right out of the gate. Thanks for all your support, and I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed making it. 'Humans' can be ordered here: https://bit.ly/PreorderHumans

Review | How a stubborn ex-federal employee launched the gay rights movement

"[Cervini] is a smooth writer and a brilliant researcher. Besides being the first full-length biography of the intellectual father of the gay liberation movement, Cervini’s work provides a wealth of fascinating new details about the movement before the Stonewall riots of 1969 . . . [A] rich portrait."

Washington Post reviews Eric Cervini's new New York Times bestseller, THE DEVIANT'S WAR.

Larry Kramer, Playwright and Outspoken AIDS Activist, Dies at 84

He worked hard to shock the country into dealing with AIDS as a public-health emergency. But his confrontational approach could sometimes overshadow his achievements.

To tackle the world’s big problems, this is the kind of imagination you must have

"Moral imagination means to view other people’s problems as if they were your own, and to begin to discern how to tackle those problems. And then to act accordingly. It summons us to understand and transcend the realities of current circumstances and to envision a better future for ourselves and others."

What We Miss Without Museums by AUSTEN YEARS author Rachel Cohen in The New Yorker.

Museums know the desires of our hands. The special presence of paintings comes from their being at once untouchable and viscerally evocative of touch.
