First Reading, vol. 13
Happy Monday folks. I attended the Texas Tribune Festival's TribFeast this weekend where Katy Tur was the keynote. She has a new book out which is 2nd on the New York Time's Bestseller list (only trailing Hillary Clinton's new book). I received a copy at the dinner, and finished all two million pages of the Alexander Hamilton biography over the weekend, so she's up next in the que.
