NEW AT THE NATION
The Nation is delighted to announce that Jeet Heer is rejoining the masthead as a national affairs correspondent and bringing his weekly podcast, The Time of Monsters with Jeet Heer, in house. In addition to continuing his monthly Nation column, “Morbid Symptoms,” he will file twice weekly dispatches on thenation.com. The titles of Jeet’s column and podcast are a nod to philosopher Antonio Gramsci’s famous remark: “The crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear.” In this political and cultural moment, Jeet believes that we too are living in an “interregnum,” an interval of opportunity for forces of good or evil to prevail, where the future is very much unknown. His essays and episodes will seek to diagnose and explore the problems of—and possible solutions for—our times. You can read his work collected here.

And in books and the arts: join Nation Poetry Editor Kaveh Akbar and poets Donika Kelly, Golden, and Jenny Xie for the magazine’s free, virtual Spring Poetry Reading on Thursday, June 9th. Register here. ⁣
