your reader’s digest

Since we launched Reader’s Digest in Canada 72 years ago, we’ve been driven by a simple editorial philosophy: this is your magazine. You, dear reader, are at the heart of what we do. We love receiving your jokes (did you know we pay $50 for each one we print?), your story suggestions, your letters to the editor. And we always appreciate your feedback. For decades, we’ve regularly conducted surveys to find out what subscribers enjoy most about the magazine so we can continue to make enhancements that suit your preferences and interests. This issue’s refresh starts with a revamped cover and ends with a new addition: an all-Canadian crossword puzzle (page 112). In between, we’ve made a few changes to improve your reading experience. You’ll see that the jokes pages are now…

LAUREN TAMAKI Illustrator, Brooklyn, N.Y. “Are My Taxes Fair?” Lauren Tamaki is always sure to do her taxes on time. Since becoming self-employed, that means filing quarterly, with the help of an accountant. Once, she attended a drag show as research for an assignment she was working on, and you better believe she wrote that off. Read about which tax deductions you might be missing on page 102. JASON FRANSON Photographer, Edmonton “Job Satisfaction” Jason Franson has worked in photography for 15 years. What he likes best about taking portraits is that it allows him to meet a wide range of people. This time around, that meant getting to know Anthony Barrett, an Edmonton man with autism spectrum disorder, his mother and his personal support worker. Read about Anthony and his business on page 12. MEGAN HAYNES Writer, Toronto “Hitting…

letter of the month

All Together Now I’ve been reading your magazine for over 46 years—ever since I was a child growing up in Jamaica. The inspirational story, “The Marvelous Making of Canada’s Most Autism-Friendly Town” (December 2018), is by far my favourite piece of all time! My son was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in 2002. Since then, I have been a firm believer in community approaches to helping kids with disabilities live their best lives. I congratulate Channel-Port aux Basques, N.L., for ensuring that kids with ASD feel accepted. This town shows that it really does take a village to raise a child! And to Reader’s Digest: you’re a treasure. Thanks for inspiring the world one issue at a time! – TANIA HERNANDEZ, Hamilton, Ont. ON OUR PLATES I just finished reading “50 Ways to Protect…

job satisfaction

IN THE SUMMER of 2010, Deborah Barrett and her son, Anthony, walked out of a restaurant near the Edmonton high school from which he’d graduated two years earlier. They had volunteered to wash dishes there to give Anthony something to do, but when they emerged, soaked, the sun sliced through the clouds and Deborah had a realization: my kid is not spending his life in a dish pit. Cleaning plates isn’t the only option for the bulk of high-school graduates. But Anthony has autism and is mostly non-verbal, aside from short words in answer to yes-or-no questions and the Eeeee sounds he makes when he’s excited, happy or frustrated. Once a person with intellectual disabilities ages out of school, “There’s no life for them,” Deborah says. Programs end, and job options…

life’s like that

Classic Art Gets Instagrammed Last week I went to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. At one point during the cleaning, a stream of saliva shot out of my mouth. When I apologized, the hygienist replied, “That’s okay, spit happens.” —ALICIA GOBINE, Barrie, Ont. Whenever I Cut a Bagel: Would you like the side that is somehow three times larger than the original bagel or the side that is the first object ever to have only two dimensions? —@DUBIOUSRHETORIC Social Media Malaise At the end of a long and difficult day, I like to come home, put my feet up, log onto Twitter, and get absolutely livid at everything awful in the world. Really takes the edge off. —Musician MARK HOPPUS To Seal One’s Wait Do people who line up at the gate before their flight…

that’s entertainment

OUR PLANET The dulcet tones of David Attenborough’s voice guide viewers through this eight-part nature series, Netflix’s most ambitious documentary to date. Filmed over four years in 50 countries, it was produced by the Planet Earth team alongside the WWF, which supplied advice and access to locations. Travelling from South American jungles to deep ocean waters, the show mixes spectacular entertainment with calls to action on climate change. Apr. 5. A MIND SPREAD OUT ON THE GROUND By Alicia Elliott The Haudenosaunee writer wraps intimate personal essays around a razor-sharp examination of intergenerational trauma in Canada and the United States.
