August 2023 Magazine

This month we explore the reality of climate change as depicted in the work of evolutionary biologist Dr. Peter A. Corning. Over the course of the next few months, PR for People will publish each chapter of Dr. Corning's latest work Superorganism: Toward a New Social Contract for Our Endangered Species. This month we have news from Nebraska. Read about Priscilla Teley Foley, who designs couture apparel with distinctly African flair.  Also, Willa Cather’s My Antonia, the third book in her Great Plains Trilogy, is a breathtaking story about life on the Nebraska prairie in the 19th Century.

Robin Lindley interviews Blaine Harden Author of Murder at the Mission

According to Blaine Harden, “The Whitman lie is a timeless reminder that in America a good story has an insidious way of trumping a true one, especially if that story confirms our virtue, congratulates our pluck, and enshrines our status as God’s chosen people.”
