Stories by John Liberty, Elizabeth Kerlikowske, and Jordan Bradley are at the center of September's issue of Encore Magazine, and editor Marie Lee says she appreciates their unique takes on their subjects.

John Liberty's cover story was delayed many times by pandemic disruptions and Bell's busy schedule according to Lee, but it became a comprehensive and wide-ranging article that gives readers a sense of Bell's significance to the craft beer industry. Poet Elizabeth Kerlikowske reported  on a children's book written especially for Kalamazoo's second-graders. And editorial assistant Jordan Bradley looked at the first and second acts of Sandra Bremer's career in theater.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
