Dec 8, 2020

The latest edition of the Phi Kappa Phi Forum will be arriving in your mailbox soon. Wrapping up the 2020 vision-based topics, the winter edition's theme is "Hindsight." The featured stories, regular columnists, and even our custom crossword puzzle will all dive deeper into that idea.

The feature articles discuss:

The Rear View of Retirement – Regrets? Journalist Rheta Grimsley Johnson has a few after a long career as a columnist.

The Joy of Rereading – Literary commentator James Mustich decides to revisit the Nero Wolfe mysteries by Rex Stout, finding new things to like along the way.

Erik Larson's Time Machine – From a desk in Manhattan, a best-selling author takes readers into the past with history books as compelling as novels.

Past Lives – At her Canada home, poet Carla Funk considers the people who once roamed the land that's now been tamed by suburbia.

Kenny and Ernest – Literary scholar Michael J. Finnegan used the work of Ernest Hemingway to better grasp the challenges faced by his late uncle as a soldier in World War II.

As always, we welcome letters to the editor, member news, poetry submissions and story ideas for upcoming themes. Visit our Forum page to learn more.
