Weekly Roundup: What To Read This Weekend

01_Weekly_Roundup10.14PM_08_Aug_SM_MWxSicily_315_insta_RTed

This week: make something with your own two hands, a touching tribute to bandanas, our reminder to get out and vote, plus more.

Vote-spo: A timely feature on photographer Janet Delaney’s 1980s series about public protest, thanks to It’s Nice That. Friendly reminder: Make your own voice heard on November 6th and v-o-t-e. Find your polling place here.

Craft corner: Stitchin’ for a cool project to work on this weekend? May we suggest a mini embroidered wall hanging c/o Frankie.

On the bandana-wagon: This essay about carrying on a late grandfather’s love for bandanas is honest, moving and unapologetically New Jersey. Read it in the New York Times Magazine.

Out and about: What does “going-out top” even mean in our increasingly casual world? The Cut investigates.

Portrait mode: Storytelling about storytellers. Photographer Beowulf Sheehan shares his experiences shooting portraits of writers like Margaret Atwood, Chinua Achebe and a jumpsuit-wearing Emma Straub, over at The Paris Review.

Word: zhaghzhagh (n.; Persian): when it’s sooo cold your teeth start uncontrollably chattering. (It is getting pretty chilly—our cozy sweaters can help with that.)
