I think hard times are coming, when we will be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, and can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine some real grounds for hope.

National Book Foundation speech, 2014

2019 Spelling Bee

Recorded: May 30th, 2019

Notes:

Normal speed. The three words the video focuses on are parochialism, horripilation and kentledge. Perhaps the producers had a certain someone in mind. MAGA today cataclysm tomorrow. The 2018 champion, Karthik Nemmani, spent 36 hours a week studying for the competition. Ouch!
