Short Story Spotlight
Winner of the 2014 Hugo Award for Best Short Story, John Chu’s story is full of both magic and science fiction. Instead of rain, in this world water falls on you whenever you tell a lie. Seems like it would only make life difficult for those trying to get away with things right? 
However, for our main character Matt, this world presents a real problem for him. His lover questions him on the idea of marriage while he still hasn’t found a way to “come out” to his not-so-forward-thinking parents. An interesting tale on the human psyche, this story truly makes the reader think.
Historical Art
A rare collection of fifteenth to nineteenth century Japanese armors have been amassed at the Met’s latest exhibition. Armor, blades, helmets and more are on display in what is a rare event. 
Recently restored, the collection includes a rare complete armor set (gusoku), a wave-shaped helmet and a blade from a famous fifteenth-century warrior. Already the most incredible collection of Japanese armors outside of Japan, these additions to the Met only further their outstanding dedication to art and history.
Rising Talent
Friends with fellow rising star A Boogie With A Hoodie, rapper Don Q started making a name for himself in the Bronx, and his skill took him across the city. He first started getting real hits after his freestyle for the popular radio show Funkmaster Flex’s Freestyles on Hot 97.
Besides A Boogie, Don Q has teamed up with PnB Rock (both of whom played at SUNY New Paltz in May), Russ, Dave East and even Meek Mill. His latest release has a stacked lineup of features that would make any other rapper jealous.
Fashion Spotlight
As an art director and fashion consultant, SofΓ­a Sanchez de Betak is perhaps one of the perfect women to create her brand, Chufy. SofΓ­a has an eye for fashion and a love for travel, collaborating with Chanel, Rodarte, Roger Viver, Conde Nast Traveler, W Magazine and countless others. Born in Buenos Aires, and New York-based SofΓ­a is a seasoned traveler and style influencer, evident in her collection.
Launching a year ago, in 2017, Chufy merges high-quality fabrics with bright color palettes. Her designs are heavily influenced by her travels around the world. Chufy is a brand for woman similar to SofΓ­a: travelers who want to be comfortable and sophisticated, with effortless elegance as the main ethos of her brand. Her collections, newly price conscious, can be found on her website, Bergdorf Goodman, and Matches Fashion.
