Youth writers and artists around the world create a new issue of KidSpirit magazine on the topic, "Beauty and the Senses."
The issue features a wealth of perspectives from global contributors on the rich topic of beauty and sensual experience. The launch includes a feature article by Elly Goetz about her experience retracing the artistic footsteps of Thomas Moran in Yellowstone. Akash Mehta reviews Ugly, a book about cultural conceptions of ugliness by design critic Stephen Bayley. In the Awesome Moments section, Rachel Narducci recounts a life-changing trip to London for a photography class, while in the Big Question Nimai Agarwal ultimately links our sense of beauty to love. Umar Baig, a KidSpirit contributor from Maryland describes what he finds beautiful about his faith tradition, Islam, in KidSpirit’s Interfaith Connections department; and Indian writer Tanmaya Murthy shares a rare moment of peace in her poem "The Swallow."
In October KidSpirit publishes an exciting PerSpectives article by adult contributor Frank Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick is a multi-platinum record producer, a Grammy-nominated composer, and filmmaker, who has worked with musical pioneers from Miles Davis to Ziggy Marley.
