Un-Trumping America

In Bookstores

The New York Times bestselling author, Dan Pfieffer, has a highly-anticipated new book out focusing on moving American politics back to a more civil, sane place. Pfieffer is a co-host of the popular political podcast, Pod Save America, and was a former White House staffer during the Obama administration, and you've likely seen him commenting on various news channels. One of his most crucial insights? The Trump presidency is not an aberration, but there is a fix to our modern democracy.

of the Wild

The classic book has been made into a movie again, and this time with a true acting legend—Harrison Ford. The simple, but an enthralling story, is about a man and a sled dog who struggle for survival in the wilds of the Yukon. See it for the nostalgia. See it for Harrison Ford. Just go see it.
