Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Writing Prompt: Witch

No comments

In this month's "Witch," Sarah Gardner Borden revisits a favorite book series from her childhood. The author discovers that the books not only delight her daughters, but also remain relevant in her own life -- providing solace as she deals with some very "adult" issues.

Have you ever re-read books as an adult that had been your own childhood favorites? What was the experience like the second time around compared to the first time? If you also shared the book(s) with children, how did their reactions compare to your own?


Sarah Raleigh Kilts is a proud member of the amazing Motherlode Writers Group (I love you guys!). Her writing has been published in Common Ties. Following her passions led her to discover a new career that’s tons of fun — as an elementary school music teacher to 220 fabulous 3rd 4th and 5th graders she gets to share her love of music and world culture with a captive — though often wiggly and giggly — audience. She lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area and can sometimes be found (even on school nights!) performing in local watering holes plucking the bass and singing with her hubby Thom in their Indie Rock duo, Diablo’s Dust. Three of their albums are currently available on iTunes.
