Like the town criers of the past, regional magazines alert people to impending events and attract attention when sprawled out on your coffee table. Stay in touch with the criers' modern, text-laden counterpart with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a one-year, six-issue subscription to Southwest Georgia Living magazine (an $18 value).
Southwest Georgia Living affords regional readers a waxy-paged window into area lifestyles and leisure with features, upcoming events, interviews, and other nuggets of community intrigue. Page through the bimonthly tome to find interviews that dish on the humanity behind local celebrities, musicians, business owners, and cyborg city-council members. Each issue also contains a Save the Date! section, which showcases festivals, art exhibits, sporting events, and other such spectacles. Meanwhile, the magazine's crisp images invite eyes into pastoral Georgian panoramas and the kempt, colorful living rooms that exemplify the region's achievements in interior decorating. Keep your shoulder angels abreast of the area's upcoming charity-related events by the taping the Up and Coming pages to your ear.
