Joshua Herring has a fascinating article on the movie “Dunkirk.” He suggests that the “out of time” framework of the movie is much live the story that God weaves.

In writing and literature, Children’s author Kate DiCamillo (Because of Winn-Dixie) writes that all children’s stories should be a little sad. The Man Booker Prize is being urged to drop American Authors from consideration. And Ann Kroeker warns that curiosity can ruin your writing.

And we have whales.
