One of my  summer highlights is to curate summer/beach reading lists from a variety of sources.

This type of reading has a long and honorable history and can even lead to great things. For instance, Lin-Manuel Miranda read Ron Chernow’s biography Alexander Hamilton on vacation, providing the inspiration for the Broadway mega-hit Hamilton, as detailed in the Playbill.com article, “Beach Read to Broadway! How Lin-Manuel Miranda Turned a History Book into Hamilton.”
