The latest edition of the Phi Kappa Phi Forum will be arriving in your mailbox soon. The spring edition's theme of "Reading" launches the 2022 series that will also include in-depth looks at writing, conversation and the art of speech. The featured stories, regular columnists, and even our custom crossword puzzles will all dive deeper into each topic as the year progresses.
