Theme Parks, Milk Wars and Bold Ideas
The latest issue of Thirty Two Magazine is on stands and in mailboxes and I’m happy to report that it’s the best issue yet, packed from front to back with great stories and better writing. The two flagship pieces are Emily Sohn’s brilliant exploration fo the raw milk underground, the food freedom movement, and the war on milk; and Jason Albert’s hilarious attempt to write a stunt memoir about the Wisconsin Dells.
But there is much more, including a revealing interview with Laurie Hertzel about the Twin Cities literary scene, Ben Obler’s diatribe against author readings, Regan Smith’s lovely profile of Current DJ Barb Abney, a look at Minneapolis’ ill-fated food swaps, a piece I did on the Midwest inferiority complex, and a fantastic collection of 22 Bold Ideas for how to improve the Twin Cities (mine was get rid of the Skyways; others were more constructive). In other words, there’s more than enough to get you through a long winter’s day of reading, so stop by your local bookstore and pick up a copy, or order it here!
