Announcing the newest issue of Miranda, a zine about motherhood and other adventures by Creative Nonfiction editor Kate Haas. In issue #18:
Kubla Khan in Morocco – How the crushing heat of a North African summer inspired me to memorize a classic poem.
Not the Austins – As a kid, I vowed that my future family would be a model of literary, artistic togetherness, just like Madeleine L'Engle's Austin clan. Let's see how that worked out, shall we?
Homegrown Rituals – A peek into some seasonal celebrations. (Hint: we like fire.)
Swallows and Amazons Forever – Why my kids and I adore a series of eighty-year-old British books.
Bad Decision – "What are some bad decisions people make, Mama?" Oho, little boy, don't get me started!
The Lab Man – A blood draw early in parenthood teaches me a thing or two.
Plus, my boys and Freddie Mercury (!); the Motel of Lost Companions goes back to high school; lots more book reviews; Mama's Stray Thoughts (encompassing the geeky nature of yours truly, some odd kid questions and the shocking truth about volunteering in school); and a recipe for scrumptious cheese puffs.
