The California Sunday Magazine – 10-2019: Escape
The California Sunday Magazine roams across California, the West, Asia, and Latin America, telling stories for a national audience. We explore science, business, entertainment, politics, technology, art, social issues, sports, food, and more. We’re curious about everything. We publish stories regularly on the web and in print — delivered monthly with select Sunday copies of the Los Angeles Time and San Francisco Chronicle.
What do you wish you could escape?
Think about it for a minute. Maybe it’s the news — and that appalled, exhausted feeling a lot of us have when we look at our phones in the morning. Or your surroundings. Maybe it’s a prison cell or a climate crisis. Maybe it’s a job. Or a relationship.
Escape has been on our minds this year. We started seeing stories of escape all around us. So we dedicated a whole issue to the theme — escapes big and small, literal and figurative, terrifying and exhilarating and mundane. We also teamed up with our colleagues at Pop-Up Magazine, our “live magazine,” to create a traveling, theatrical escape issue. We’re bringing the show to grand, historic venues in the U.S. and Canada.
This issue unfolds in three chapters. First, escaping the past. Then, escaping the present. And finally, escaping the future. So, what do you wish you could escape?
