Order the Latterly winter issue!
I know it’s been a difficult, exhausting year. On Twitter, people sometimes refer to 2017 as a dumpster fire. Of course, they’re not talking about the year itself. Rather, the earth is the dumpster fire, and we’re all sweating in it. We’ve got interminable wars, mass starvation, unabashed racism at the highest levels of government and actual fires in the hills of Southern California. The president of the United States is a self-professed sexual predator—and we knew that before he got elected. What are we supposed to do about all this?
For me, the answer is Latterly. My resistance is to learn as much as I can about what’s happening and to report on it for our readers. For you, the answer may also be Latterly. Staying informed, staying compassionate is active resistance, conditioning yourself to be alert to injustice wherever it exists so that you can intervene in whatever ways you can. Big solutions will depend upon a resurgence of mass organizing and citizenship. But it always starts where it always has: with original news reporting.
While other publications started print and went digital, we went the other direction. Late last year, co-director Stefano Garavelli and I decided to create something tangible. Our correspondents work hard on these stories, and when they exist in your lives—on your nightstands and libraries, and not just a flash of light in your web browser—we give them more meaning. The result is four 2017 volumes, each with a custom, beautifully illustrated cover. The stories inside are important and often timeless, relevant long past their issue date.
This winter we’re releasing all four 2017 issues as a set with a discounted price: $35 with free shipping anywhere in the world. If you’d like to make this a gift to someone, we can include a custom note inside the box. Just send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short text you’d like to include.
By owning Latterly magazine, may you be reminded that we’re all in this together.
