Weekend Whats

What to Book:Becoming Duchess Goldblatt is two stories: that of the reclusive real-life writer who created a fictional character out of loneliness and thin air, and that of the magical Duchess Goldblatt herself, a bright light in the darkness of social media. Fans around the world are drawn to Her Grace’s voice, her wit, her life-affirming love for all humanity, and the fun and friendship of the community that’s sprung up around her.” This is a great long-weekend read with some serious feel-good vibes. It’s an absolute must read if you’re a fan of Lyle Lovett (which I am) and/or Benjamin Dreyer (which I really am!)

+ What to Watch: We could all use a little nostalgia. So this is the perfect weekend to follow Andrew McCarthy reuniting with and interviewing fellow Brat Packers to answer: What did it mean to be part of the Brat Pack? Check out Brats on Hulu. (It’s really interesting to see all of them now, where they live, how they think about the old days, etc. I even re-watched a few of the old movies. Fair warning: Molly Ringwald and Judd Nelson did not do new interviews for the doc.)
