Whether it’s a small feature about someone who gives their time and talent (Terry Gendron), or an escape into haunted happenings (A Spirited Town), we hope you’ll find something that entices you each time you pick up the magazine.
From the practical stories (Get it Straight), to the inspiring ones (Brothers on the Field and Inside the Ring), to the quick lists and photos of familiar faces, we want you to linger over Hanover Magazine.
Linger longer than a glimpse at news on your phone or in a newspaper.
As the editor of Hanover Magazine, I’m biased about the content. I love it all. But depending on the time of the day, or even the month of the year that I pick up each issue, I have some favorites. In turn, my favorites are often linked to my needs. Do I feel like making something creative for dinner? I flip to Taste.
Do I want to go out for dinner? I hit Restaurants.
We created this issue of Hanover Magazine during the summer weeks, so my most recent favorite read was Linda Esterson’s story A High Score. I couldn’t get to the beach, so this story felt like the next best thing: A beach read.
The voyeuristic thrill of knowing how two people met, whether they fell in love suddenly, if there were challenges and even details about their chemistry is almost as steamy as a good romance novel.
Our quest for love and our efforts to maintain it generate a constant stream of incredible art, music and theories. For love, countless people flock to counseling, singles mingles and online dating sites.
As Esterson’s stories reveal, love unfolds everywhere, every day.
Our challenge is to slow down long enough to notice. Our challenge is to put down our smartphones and connect.
I hope you will linger longer over this issue. Thanks for picking it up.
