Welcome to Grassroots Propaganda. Enter Lauren, a twenty-something adventurer and recent lit grad with a penchant for good literature, old sepia photos and unusual tea infusions. My addiction to change and travel informs most of my life decisions. I naturally gravitate towards mountains and books, as both of these things allow me to take comfort in my own insignificance with relative impunity.

I love to write and aim, with Grassroots Propaganda, to make a concrete(ish) habit out of it. I hope to share lovingly articulated tales of my travels; reviews of books that I like and books that I don’t; and occasional musings on the evolving spectacle of popular culture, with which I am currently vaguely enthralled. (Read: frequently scrolls Trump’s Twitter feed in varying degrees of trepidation and incredulity and finds hilarity and solace in Julie Houts’ hysterically accurate caricatured comments on the skewed state of modern life.)

If you share my delight in any or all of these things – and equally if you do not – you are warmly invited to peruse my  musings entirely at your leisure.
