Many people know of  Elaine Welteroth’s work with Teen Vogue and of her lucky white boots, I was elated to find out she has written a memoir. Because she was the youngest editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue and the first African American director of beauty and health at Condé Nast, I thought I would fall into a book that was full of advice on how she became just that. But this book is the opposite. Instead of writing an advice book, she has been honest about her career and how hard it was being a FOD (first, only, different) in her industry and what happens when you make it to the top.

Picking up where A Discovery of Witches leaves off, the second volume of the All Souls Trilogy is just as adventurous and magical as its predecessor. After travelling through time, newlyweds Diana and Matthew find themselves in Elizabethan London. Though Matthew, a vampire, remembers 1591 like it was yesterday, witch Diana is out of her element, used to technology and definitely not used to wearing a corset. She must adapt to the Queen’s England quickly because it is still up to her to protect the magical world that may or may not be a secret from humans.

The history of American prohibition has long been linked to major cities like New York and Chicago, leaving the rich story of the DC temperance movement long overlooked until now. Local historian Garrett Peck takes readers on a tour of the city, beginning at the usually forgotten Temperance Fountain and snaking a path through government buildings, spectacular mansions, and city squares that tell the story of just exactly how dry we weren’t. Many of these sights still stand today and I encourage you to grab a beer and take a step back in time to one of our nation’s most famous failed experiments.
