Magazine subscription service (and now book club) Stack magazines are hosting an event in London this July, hosting two popular indie titles on the night. Taking place on the 6th of July at The Book Club in Shoreditch, the event will see Mother Tongue and Kindling join forces to discuss “rethinking the family.” Named ‘Beyond the Nuclear Family’, this new event follows Stack’s Independent Magazine Fair in May. The topic looks to discuss, “what does it mean to have a family today?”
It will look to delve into the “tired old stereotypes of the nuclear family,” their Eventbrite description notes. The aim would be to present a, “fresh, inclusive, and often challenging vision of contemporary parenthood.” Attendees can expect to hear the how and why they started their magazines, and “why it’s time to think again about our most fundamental social structure.” Speakers include Natalia Rachlin – co-founder and co-editor of Mother Tongue, and Harriet Fitch Little – editor-in-chief of Kindling. The former is a biannual print magazine that interrogates (and celebrates) modern motherhood, and is currently on issue 2. Kindling is a magazine by the team at Kinfolk and focuses on people with children. It’s just launched ‘The Imagination Issue’ – the third edition of the magazine.
