As one of those baby boomers who came of age during the folk-music revival of the 1950s and 1960s, I was attracted immediately to Lauren Weiner’s “ Where Have All the Lefties Gone .” The article is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the music, its makers, and the changin’ times in which it thrived. On a slightly different historical tack, I also enjoyed reading Robert Miola’s review of Eamon Duffy’s Fires of Faith: Catholic England Under Mary Tudor . I’ve now added the book to my winter “to read” list.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
