Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: The new Spielberg, for you and the kids, is “The BFG.” I’m planning to see the new Le Carre adaptation, “Our Kind of Traitor.” Television: A new season of “The Great British Baking Show” starts Friday on PBS. Hooray! Books: Noah Hawley’s “Before the Fall” is the literate mystery/thriller of the summer: some of it takes place on Martha’s Vineyard, so it’s a great beach read. Music: Maxwell’s “blackSUMMERS’night” has been getting a lot of play on my iPhone lately. Sports: A great athletic weekend: Wimbledon, Euro2016, and the U.S. Olympic swimming trials, starring the indestructible Michael Phelps. Finally: I love fireworks, but not in the middle of Manhattan.
