Rewatching the Wrinkle in Time Trailer: A Links Round-Up

Last weekend was so, so much if you are a nerdy girl. First there was this magical Wrinkle in Time teaser trailer, which made me want to buy Storm Reid a thousand bouquets of flowers forever. Then there was some Star Wars footage with Oscar Isaac giving Carrie Fisher a kiss, plus these excellent red posters for The Last Jedi (BUT NO POSTER OF ROSE AND I AM FURIOUS ABOUT IT). And THEN as if that weren’t enough, the Thirteenth Doctor was announced to be A WOMAN and I just, wow, it just was really, really a lot.

How to be an author on social media.

David Brooks wrote an insane article claiming that cultural barriers are more significant than structural ones, and also ?sandwiches are confusing to uneducated people? look I don’t even know. Anyway, this response about faking it is really good.

Some Spiderman comics to read now that you’ve seen and loved Spiderman: Homecoming.

Lindy West asks: Will men stick up for me?

“We can love a thing and still critique it. In fact, that’s the only way to really love a thing.” Daniel Jose Older on the whiteness of book publishing and how to change it.

Just some solid gold internet content right here.

Okay, I guess in addition to Serena Williams and Pete Sampras, Andy Murray can take up residence in the smallish tennis player corner of my heart. This is nice.

Tony Kushner is writing a Donald Trump play. I should have seen this coming. I can’t wait for it to come out, you know, twenty years from now.

The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler turns fifty.

I have been hearing about this webseries adaptation of Middlemarch QUITE A LOT lately, and although I have been burned by some non-LBD webserieses before, I’m inclined to give love a chance. This decision is in no way influenced by the fact that I’ve recently convinced two friends to watch Lizzie Bennet Diaries and am working on a third. (One of them is sending me text updates and it’s magical.)

The brilliant Clare McBride offers an overview of furry history over at Syfy Wire.

And something really marvelous to end on: The Millions has released their second half of 2017 book preview. HEAVEN.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends! Watch the Wrinkle in Time trailer as many times as you need to: You deserve it.

    Disappointed to see Claudia’s bed is gone from MOMA. And the restaurant, and the fountain. *crushed*

    • Aw, I didn’t mean for the article to bum you out! Claudia’s bed and restaurant and fountain live forever in the book!

  • Especially liked the article by Daniel Jose Older. Thanks for the links!

  • I love the article about social media for authors! Roxane Gay and Celeste Ng do such a great job with twitter, it was particularly interesting to hear from them. I don’t even watch Doctor Who, but I’m super excited the new dr will be a woman. I also really appreciated the Andy Murray thing. I was feeling pretty down about sexism on the internet at the time that happened and it was a really nice break from that 🙂

  • I haven’t seen the star wars footage! ahhh! But Jodie Whitaker and the Wrinkle in Time trailer made that week for me. Joy of joys. I’ve not even read Wrinkle in Time, but it looks good.

    • Doesn’t the movie look so so good? If you do read Wrinkle in Time, I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts — I have a theory that it’s one of those books you have to have read as a kid or else you can’t enjoy it? So I need to get that hypothesis into testing. :p
