#AmReading, #AmEditing: THEN and NOW, the next anthology by the Writers at Harwood Place

Stories from THEN, essays on NOW, poetry in between.

“I entered this house a new baby, coming home from the hospital in 1922. I wonder how many people have planted trees and built rock gardens in the yard and told stories in this layered house since then? I would walk right down to the bakery on Vliet Street (was it Meurers?) and bring back cupcakes for all of us to enjoy. Or walk up to Washington Boulevard and take the bus downtown to Wisconsin Avenue. Somehow there must be a way to bridge the magic fog between then and now.”

~ from “The Layered House” by Mary Lewis

    I just put The Reader’s Showcase into my calendar. I wasn’t in Wisconsin for the readers’ “Then,” but I’m here for their “Now.” Great work you are doing, Christi. And great writing the residents are doing.
