For the Book Review section on a satirical novel by Michelle de Krester- The Life to Come. The author challenges that travel does not necessarily broaden one’s mind.

On Cynthia Nixon’s run for governor of New York. Nixon is best known as an actress who played Miranda in the television show “Sex and the City,” but she also has a well-documented history of public education advocacy. Our focus of interest was that her celebrity is discussed to the exclusion of her platform and history of political organizing.
