I've added a new outlet to my portfolio: the amazing literary community of Book Riot! I've been reading the site for some time and they do some really fun, insightful articles (and a lot of silly bookish things that are also of interest). My first two pieces are up now, more to come shortly.
I am fascinated by religions and the effects they have on people's lives -- not from a critical perspective, but just as a window on our humanity. So Reza Aslan's forthcoming book God: A Human History was a must-read.
I don't follow sports, but I do follow cultural events. The ongoing firestorm over #TakeTheKnee reveals more about America than it does about football, so I thought I'd round up some books on other notable athlete protests.
