Magazine of the Week

Hi, everybody!

This week’s magazine is an oldie but a goodie!

Cosmo12new

Before Amy Shumer, Tina Fey,  or Margaret Cho, before Bust, and “Sex and the City”, there was Helen Gurley Brown, who was single and loved it.  She wasn’t the only reason that single womanhood switched from meaning “pitied” to meaning “fabulous”, but she sure helped the cause along.  Cosmopolitan was her mouthpiece for this campaign.  The library has a complete run from 1980, and a few random issues from the 1970s.
