November Magazines on Display in Periodicals

Here’s the latest:

In the November issue of The Atlantic, hear the scientific side of how Leonardo da Vinci made Mona Lisa smile. (Hint: it involved several late night trips to a Florentine morgue).

Matt Taibbi pens a scathing exposé of the “The Great College-Loan Swindle” in the latest Rolling Stone. But, if student loan problems hit too close to home, skip ahead to the latest news on Stranger Things, Sam Smith, and get inside the mind of the meteoric Cardi B.

If you’re feeling uneasy about the future, you’ll find no solace in this month’s WIRED feature, “Love in the Time of Robots.” The article tells the tale of engineer Hiroshi Ishiguro who builds androids. But not just any androids--”beautiful, realistic, uncannily convincing human replicas.”

Read these and hundreds more of the latest and most popular magazines, all on display on the 3rd floor of the Main Library.
