Ryerson Folio Magazine is Ryerson’s first general-interest culture magazine, published three times a year in print, and weekly online during the academic year. This issue includes our first feature art story by alumna Tara Aghdashloo, a feature on Ryerson Men’s basketball coach Roy Rana, reviews on must read books from Ryerson’s VP Finance and Administration Julia Hanigsberg, an excerpt from Kamal Al-Solaylee’s new memoir Intolerable, a happenings guide for this fall, as well as photoshoots, essays, and commentary throughout the issue.

We also feature the writing of three more alumni, including Sarah Nicole Prickett, Danielle Meder, and Kasi Bruno. Lastly, we plead with our readers in Megan Jones’ essay on why the world isn’t allowed to end this December.
