What to Book: Charles Barkley isn’t the only one trashing San Francisco these days. There’s no doubt that things could be better around here. But it’s still the most beautiful city around, and one of the most interesting. And certainly one of the most misunderstood. To help with that last part, check out David Talbot’s Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love. It’s fun, enlightening, and a serious page turner. Even Sir Charles would love it.

+ What to Doc: Tired of movies about superheroes? Then take some time this weekend to watch a doc about an actual hero. Ron Howard directed a movie about Jose Andres and World Central Kitchen: We Feed People. Also, if you haven’t seen the documentary of the year, Navalny is now on HBO Max.
