Beeline: What Spelling Bees Reveal about Generation Z’s New Path to Success (Basic Books) Foregrounding Gen Z, Shankar, a 2017 Guggenheim Fellow, analyzes the convergence of immigration, “brain sports,” and the shifting media landscape to illustrate the increasingly competitive nature of childhood and how it plays out on broadcast and social media.
“Fascinating. Shalini Shankar uses the spelling bee as a lens into the world of Gen Z, illuminating its contours and giving us all a chance to reflect on what it means to grow up.” —Angela Duckworth, author of Grit
