Alexis Coe  🐶 💀 📚 📺🎙🤷🏻‍♀️

Having a terrible time producing a Washington series with Doris Kearns Goodwin. Coming to a History channel near you in 2020.

I moderated a panel/love letter to Brooklyn history for Jenny’s “One book, One city” win. Read “Manhattan Beach,” now out in paperback, and tour the Brooklyn Historical Society and the Brooklyn Navy Yard!

Our freezer is now dominated by It's-Its from California. Well done, Anthony, but dry ice won’t solve everything. What are you going to do about winter???

I brought the court transcripts. My Lizzie Borden brought the axe. (📷 @malloryjacqueline) #campnomansland

Our lil’ cabin🌲🌻✌️

I’m Rosie, and I approve this message. #pupthevote

An evergreen message from the San Francisco chapter of the National Council of Negro Women in 1956. #history #vote #election

Me: Hm, the WiFi is down.
Anthony: Oh, I changed the name.

Spotted this chilling image in the ACLU archives and they made good use of it. Follow them to see the hundreds of cases they’re fighting to protect your civil liberties, and remember, in the immortal words of Michael Douglas in the American President (borrowed from Michael Dukakis): “For the record, yes, I am a card-carrying member of the ACLU, but the more important question is ‘Why aren't you, Bob?’ Now this is an organization whose sole purpose is to defend the Bill of Rights, so it naturally begs the question, why would a senator, his party's most powerful spokesman and a candidate for President, choose to reject upholding the constitution?”

Laura Shapiro & I discussed how a tossed-off note about a nasty mess of blood and oatmeal revealed a lot about the writer Dorothy Wordsworth. #womenshistory #history

The Washington Post asked me to review a new biography on Benedict Arnold, which, to me, felt like that final scene in “16 Candles,” when Jake Ryan is waiting outside of the church and says, “yeah, you.” #history #revolutionarywar #revolution

My grandfather called my office at the NYPL, where I was a research curator, every single day. We talked about my work, heavy petting amongst the teenage pages, and why I was so insistent on having a career. I think about him, and this Ellis Island photo I was looking at while we talked, a lot, so I wrote about it for that exact series over @nymag. #immigration #history #ellisisland
