Best Book Lists for Oct. 16-22, 2020

Getting crowded in this mop bucket

Happy Friday,

I used to think that if you gathered up everyone who delights in reading behind-the-scenes accounts about writers and their books, you’d have enough folks to fill a mop bucket. A small one. 

But this newsletter’s proof there’s at least a bathtub’s worth of us who take an interest in stories about writers and what they produce. And so is this piece by Carson Vaughan about South Dakota’s first poet laureate, Badger Clark. You’ll enjoy the article if you like reading Bidwell Hollow’s This Week in Literary History stories.

Be wise, stay safe, and thanks for reading,


Help fill this mop bucket. Send Bidwell Hollow to a friend, neighbor, and everyone you know named Badger.
