These four issues of the quarterly publication of the Saskatchewan Literacy Network in Canada are each devoted to a separate aspect of literacy and literacy education. In addition to an editorial and series of articles on the issue topic, each issue includes book reviews and network news. Some issues also include interviews and annotated bibliographies. The first issue, which is devoted to women and literacy, includes articles on literacy and abused women, women and literacy research, literacy needs of domestic workers, and women and mathematics. Included among the topics discussed in the issue devoted to plain language are the following: development of learner-written materials, clear language in government, advocacy for clear language, plain language and the law, plain language and the literacy community, and white collar illiteracy. Nine family literacy programs throughout Canada and one U.S. program are profiled in the issue on family literacy. The special issue on literacy resource materials includes 11 reviews of resources from the "Literacy Materials Bulletin" of British Columbia (Canada) and 26 reviews by Saskatchewan (Canada) practitioners.
