Yankee Magazine March/April 2013

DUBLIN, New Hampshire (February 13, 2013)— Yankee Magazine’s March/April issue examines the power of place with feature stories about how land defines us. The theme continues through the entire issue with a reader hometown photo contest; a humorous look at New England’s mud season; and Edie Clark’s celebration for her 250-year old house.

“In New England— a region so compact, so woven with landscape and history and ancestry and tradition— the sense of place burrows more deeply than anywhere else,” says Yankee Magazine’s editor Mel Allen. “For editors, every issue is special in its own way, but some speak to us more than others. This is one of them.”
