We can't wait to share the new interactive features and components for families to enjoy.
As we welcome the spring season, we read New York Times columnist and Nashville essayist Margaret Renkl’s Late Migrations, an unique, captivating portrait of a family—and of the cycles of joy and grief that inscribe human lives within the natural world. In brief essays, two threads haunt and harmonize. In one, Renkl traces a tender and honest portrait of her complicated parents and of the bittersweet moments that accompany a child’s transition to caregiver. In another, she offers observations on the world surrounding her, ringing with rapture and heartache. Together, Renkl suggests that there is astonishment to be found in common things: in what seems ordinary, in what we all share.
The discussion this month will be hosted online. RSVP through Eventbrite to let us know you'll be attending, and you will be emailed details on how to join the discussion. Questions? Contact Mamie Hassell at email@example.com.
