Writers at Heart . . . and at Brain?

If you’re a writer, you might have always thought that your mind works in a unique way. Well, science may have proved that to be true. In 2014, German scientist Martin Lotze and his team of researchers studied the brain activity of writers and non-writers as they wrote to compare their brain functions. With the help of fMRI scanners to see which parts [...]

Destination Literature: The White Cliffs of Dover

The end of Shakespeare’s King Lear finds its characters situated atop the striking cliffs of Dover, England, a setting suitably dramatic for the climax of one of drama’s great tragedies. The blinded Earl of Gloucester asks his son, Edgar, to bring him to the edge of the cliffs saying, “There is a cliff, whose high and bending head / Looks fearfully in the [...]

Fall for Foliage: Colorful Autumn Trips in New England

Growing up in New England makes it easy to take for granted that the leaves change colors in the fall. It was only recently that I began to fully appreciate the ephemeral beauty of the yellows, reds and oranges that decorated my neighborhood each fall. Many people travel to New England to witness the beauty of peak foliage season, which ranges from mid-September [...]

The Art of Finding a Reading Spot

When you ask non-readers why they don’t like to read, you can get a variety of answers. Maybe they can’t find anything interesting to read.

Boston Drama: Upcoming Theater in the Boston Area

Hamilton has come to Boston! And some PSG staff members have already been lucky enough to see the hit musical since its opening. Nora’s verdict: “Hamilton was amazing! My brother cried the whole time, so it’s definitely an emotional musical!” Annette shares Nora’s (and her brother’s) enthusiasm: “The talent of the touring cast is second only to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s brilliant writing. It was [...]

The Bookish Side of Instagram

I love looking at different Bookstagrams (Instagram accounts centered around books) in my free time. There are so many different styles and perspectives: monochromatic or vibrant color schemes, book reviews, jam-packed bookshelves, aesthetically pleasing book combinations, themes like coffee or fashion—the possibilities are endless. Below are some of my favorite accounts: @Theguywiththebook was awarded “Bookstagrammer of the Year” for 2018 by the London [...]

PSG Favorites: Podcasts

The PSG staff can all agree that a great podcast can make a morning commute to the office a time to look forward too.

Some of our favorite episodes feature Kristen Bell, Ashton Kutcher and David Sedaris. Colleen combines her love [...]

The staff split into two teams to solve riddles in two different rooms. One team had to escape [...]

Falling into a Brand New Season

I will admit that it’s saddening to watch summertime fade away. After waiting all year for some warm weather and beach days, I always feel like summer goes by too quickly. But the inevitable changing to shorter days does have its bright sides. For example, fall presents a much more comfortable climate. The cool, crisp autumn air will alleviate the summer’s oppressive humidity. [...]
