Life is full of open and closed doors—those moments when we did or didn't extend kindness to ourselves, to friends, to family, or to strangers. In this issue, we explore these opened and closed doors, learning through honest storytelling and art about crossing the threshold and how opening the door is a small but profound step toward kindness and hospitality. Featuring the 2017 VanderMey Nonfiction Prize recipient Sonja Livingston, awarded by judge Josh MacIvor-Andersen.
