What to Movie: I usually reserve this section for items that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your couch. But I’ll risk going off-brand and tell you to go out and see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Great art. Excellent story. And a killer soundtrack. My whole family loved it (and it’s impossible to express how rare that is…)

+ What to Watch: If you’re looking for more family-friendly content to wrap up the kids’ school break, check out Dumplin’ on Netflix. And once you’ve explained all the references to Dolly Parton, cue up Nine to Five. (Word is that there’s a sequel in the works.)

+ What to Book: Like most highly literate, uber-smart, hilarious wordsmiths, I am a big fan of Benjamin Dreyer. The longtime (or is that long time?) Random House copy chief is out with his own book. Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style. Dreyer is the guy that the world’s best writers go to when their kids ask what a gerund is (ok, that might have just been me). The best thing about Ben is that he has emailed to correct my grammar in NextDraft exactly zero times, (though calling him Ben might change that…)
