  27. Marilynne Robinson: What Are We Doing Here?
    Whether she's writing fragmented fiction (read Gilead!) or incisive essays, Marilynne Robinson's sentences hit with the weight of a proverb. Plain descriptions of everyday objects read as visions from an oracle. And even though I'm so bored with writers who continue to "search for mystery" in traditional religious texts, I can never get bored of Robinson's writing. In her new book of essays, she looks at our current political moment through Ralph Waldo Emerson's transcendentalist lens and Alexis de Tocqueville's critiques of democracy, and offers a prescription for many of our social ills.

    (Ballard, $10)


  39. Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen
    Cecilia Vicuña's pieces gently demand a certain attention to detail, a certain kind of intentional observation and consideration. Her art is largely composed of material that's been discarded and overlooked; it contemplates displacement and climate change, embodied across several mediums. While many of her practices are deeply rooted in conceptual, land, and feminist art and the culture of the Andes, her global concern with the environment and displacement cracks open meaning to the close looker. Take Burnt Quipu (2018). Tethered to the high vaulted ceiling of the lower gallery, dozens of lengths of knotted unspun wool are arranged in a forest-like fashion. Vicuña has been making these quipus for decades, in reference to an ancient method of remembering (or record keeping) involving knotted cords, used by the Incas and other Andean cultures. Being among the wool quipus is a sort of "reading." Walking through these unstructured wool beams is a feeling unlike any other—it's just to the left of traipsing through the forest and just to the right of being lightly wrapped in a blanket.  JASMYNE KEIMIG

There you can try the Bourbon Street Bob Melt, an andouille sausage and Granny Smith combo melted between slabs of sourdough and smothered with Beecher’s and Darigold queso.

Don’t think about tomorrow; just eat. KATIE HERZOG

    Historian and American University professor Ibram X. Kendi, who wrote the National Book Award–winning history Stamped from the Beginning, is out with a new (and slightly shorter) work that helpfully draws the distinction between being "not racist" and "anti-racist." Since the phrase has been co-opted by many groups to serve many different ends, merely claiming you're "not racist" has become meaningless. Saying you're anti-racist means you're actively trying to repair the wounds of racist policy and prevent any more damage from being done. Kendi will elaborate more on this distinction in his talk, drawing on newly unearthed moments in American history to illustrate the point. Local writer Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race, will moderate. RICH SMITH
