declaration of independence

What I'm Reading

Jefferson Memorial

Happy Fourth of July! Today’s post includes a story that isn’t so much something I’m reading, as something to which I’m listening. NPR’s Morning Edition has a long-standing tradition to read the Declaration of Independence on-air every July 4th. This year is no different, though it has a bit of a twist. Rather than the usual cast of hosts and correspondents reading in turn, this year they have visitors to the National Archives doing the reading.
