Pull out the hammock and a glass of lemonade. The Grinnell Magazine is full of good summer reading. Here’s what’s in store from this Midwestern beach read:
• The cover story, written by former editor Jackie Stolze, describes the journey of three engaging Afghani sisters who found their way to Grinnell via refuge in the Czech Republic. “Finding Each Other,” which details the Nahib sisters’ love of learning and shared international experiences, finds them right at home at Grinnell at the end of their first year.
• If your days as an S&B reader or staffer conjure up fond memories, you will want to read “The S&B Turns 115,” a retrospective by former editors of the time-honored campus newspaper. The story by Kim Eckart ’92 features photos from the S&B’s former makeup home at The Grinnell Herald-Register.
• By the time you reach “The Grinnell Guide to Surviving the Tough Economy,” you may want to refill the lemonade. There are many useful tips offered by Grinnell faculty and staff for coping during uncertain times.
From the inside cover to the back, beach readers will also find Grinnellians—on and off campus—who are squid attacking, SEEDing, ReNewing Orleans, living spiritually, learning sustainability, and celebrating 20 years of gender and women’s studies.
