Product Review (submitted on March 21, 2016):
I have been a devoted fan of Calliope for many years. All throughout my grade school years I eagerly anticipated the next issue's arrival in the mail. From Hatsheput to Hellenism, and Catherine the Great to Catherine of Aragon, Calliope always introduced me to fascinating subjects, and was the catalyst for my love of history. Because of that I wanted to express my thanks to everyone at Calliope (which I know is now Dig) for helping to shape my historical consciousness.
After graduating from high school last summer I decided to take a gap year before I start at Oberlin College next fall. Given this opportunity, I followed my heart and headed to the cultural heart of Western Civilization. I have been traveling in Europe for a couple months now. Visiting the places I read about in Calliope was incredible, informative, and my experience was greatly enriched by everything I had learned from past issues. I again want to thank all the Dig/Calliope staff for inspiring my cultural pilgrimage! Your work has greatly impacted my passions and eager pursuit of history.
