Fight against inertia, and do things that truly matter

This week The Lunch Read lost one of our own. A gentle leader and a faithful friend, an independent thinker and the glue that bound all of us together, Adam was taken from us far too early – he had so much left to give.
 
We’ve spent the past week reminiscing, celebrating his memory and leaning on his incredible wisdom. He was an avid writer, and his words echo with the insight of someone far beyond his years. The best we can do to honor his wise words is share them with you. And so today, we present you with the wisdom of Adam London. May his memory be a blessing.

Logging Off (When We're Always On)

The Story Behind 'The Lunch Read'

"The Lunch Read is a chance to learn together, to tell a story, to spread love of a new author or point people to a fantastic essay they might have missed. It's getting better each week. And I promise, we're just getting started."
