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.
Can you believe it? Only one month until Canada’s 150th year as a country. In From the Editor, Editor-in-chief Martha Attridge Bufton delves into the significance of this time and into the content Open Shelf readers can look forward to.
As always, please let us know what you think.
