Shelf Life: Whale Food, Speed Dating Redux, Arab Women Writers

Utne Reader librarian Danielle Maestretti shares the highlights (and occasional lowlights) of what's landing in our library each week in 'Shelf Life.'

Utne's library is abuzz with a steady flow of 1,300 magazines, journals, weeklies, zines, and other dispatches from the cultural front that are rarely found in big-box bookstores, or newsstands.

Featured in this week's episode:

- enRoute on Icelandic cuisine

- Science News on “The Dating Go Round

- A special issue of Southwest Review featuring modern fiction by Arab women (not available online)

- Zine excerpts and Canadian tabloids in Broken Pencil (not available online)

- Nuclear Energy Insight on how a nuclear power plant became a “refuge” for sea turtles
