Guest Curator Anna CaltabianoThis weekend is all about Dear Old Dad. We’ve rounded up some stories about fathers—the men who make us laugh, take us on ridiculous adventures, and shower us with love.

After the Father’s Day reads, dive into a few picks from a younger source.

At 17, guest curator Anna Caltabiano is already a published author. With her first book, All That is Red, and talks of a series on the way, Anna is on a mission to connect with teens and parents about important issues facing middle- and high-school kids. In Anna’s words, “Though many people identify me with writing books, I find that I’m most happy when all parts of my life are in balance. I like the flexibility Next Issue gives me to branch out.”
