Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Miranda Issue #17

No comments

Announcing issue number seventeen of Miranda, CNF co-editor Kate
Haas's zine about motherhood. This issue features the essay "Waldorf
School Dropout" (gnomes and knitting don't make up for a hellish
teacher); a discussion about using your child's card to reserve extra
books at the library (clever strategem or unethical scam?); the
account of a maternal crush; and a Ma Ingalls-inspired paean to the
chest freezer (mm, pesto in January). Plus lots of book talk and
reviews, offbeat parental moments, and a recipe for parmesan chicken.
