Writing Prompt: Of Books and Babies
In this month's essay, Julianna Thibodeaux explores her relationships with her children and with her books. She writes: "When did I make the connection that my love of books was about more than the release they offered from the confines of each day's logistical concerns? The troubles of the flesh?"
Why do you read? Why do you write? How do books help you cope with your "troubles of the flesh?"
