So glad to see the return of On the Issues! As a little girl, I read the magazine every time I visited my grandmother’s house. Occasionally, if the stars aligned, she was in a good mood, I had behaved, AND she had finished reading it herself, then she’d let me take the current issue home to keep and reread.
On the Issues was how I learned about poets like Marge Piercy, artists like Anke Feuchtenberger and issues like FGM. It was a very eye-opening magazine for me.
I’ll be reading eagerly in the months to come. And I’ll be spreading the word — nay, proclaiming the good news! — to all my friends.
