Novelist @robinbgaines featured in the Detroit Free Press, discussing her debut novel #InvincibleSummers! @ELJPublications @freep

"That 'Invincible Summers,' which she finished in 2008, took eight years to get into print doesn’t seem to faze the late-budding novelist. She’s already well into her next novel."
Novelist Robin Gaines spent 8 years writing her Michigan-set debut, a family story told through the eyes of a young girl

ICYMI, a very thoughtful review for #OrdinarilyWell from @SStossel in @nytimes! @PeterDKramer @fsgbooks

"You will most likely come away convinced by [Kramer's] argument for the efficacy of antidepressants — and moved by his humane concern for his patients, and for the needless suffering of unmedicated patients around the world."--Scott Stossel, The New York Times Book Review 
Do antidepressants work? More often than not, argues the author of “Listening to Prozac.”

Excellent review for #WhenWeAreNoMore by #AbbySmithRumsey in @washingtonpost!#digitalmemory #futureofourpast

"The upshot is that the technologies a society uses to record, store and share information will play a crucial role in determining the richness, or sparseness, of its legacy.... Whether through cave paintings or Facebook posts, we humans have always been eager to record our experiences. But, as Rumsey makes clear, we’ve been far less zealous about safeguarding those records for posterity. In choosing among media technologies through the ages, people have tended to trade durability for transmissibility."--Nicholas Carr, The Washington Post
Abby Smith Rumsey explores the pitfalls of digital life for preserving our past for the future.

Historian #NathanStoltzfus weighed in on the Trump/Hitler comparisons for @thedailybeast last month. Worth reading! #HitlersCompromises @yalepress

"The United States is not now facing a 'Weimar moment,' because the sense of crisis is not nearly as palpable and widespread as it was in Weimar Germany. Trump also does not seem driven like Hitler to slip history itself into a straightjacket cut to his own ideology, and his criminal cunning is less acute."
The U.S. is not facing a ‘Weimar Moment’ as the Germans did when they first elected Hitler, but the comparisons between the Fuhrer and Trump warrant thought.

Terrorism in Europe is a generational problem, says Juliette Kayyem. While the US has effectively integrated immigrant communities into its national identity, European nations have not.
