February is Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and of course, the month of valentines. We are debuting cryptic crosswords for all of you who love puzzles with our new column 793.73. This month, we are featuring eight clues that challenge readers to identify eight Black authors whose work is worth celebrating. And we are also featuring articles from women co-edit books, find more respectful ways to describe people and their work, want to live in good relationships on Turtle Island, and land the right job because they know how to make the most of the interview process.
We are taking a break for the summer and will not be publishing on August 15. However, we have lots of reading suggestions in this issue if you are lucky enough to be able to take a break as well.
Look back at a year of tweets and see which articles made the best impression.
