From the April 1996 magazine.

What will it look like?

On the Grapevine

We recently got some e-mail from Gary J. in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania. He said, "I thought I'd write to express my views on the proposed Spanish Grapevine. I think it's a beautiful idea--the more alcoholics that can be reached, the better. I read about this proposal in the October 1995 Grapevine in the section on the 60th Anniversary of AA. I wondered, 'What do people who do not read English read every month?' I'd never thought about that before--I guess I took my 'Grapevine Privilege' for granted."

Well, Gary, it is with great pleasure that we can now extend those "Grapevine privileges" to Spanish-speaking AA members around the world. With the blessings of the AA General Service Conference and the AA Board of Trustees behind us, and with a Spanish editor now on staff, we have laid the groundwork for this exciting new venture and look forward to starting publication of a bi-monthly Spanish edition of the magazine this summer.
