Hippo continues to blow my nonfiction-loving mind. This time, two of my favorites, who don’t know each other, are featured in the same issue: Emily Brisse’s “I Am Still Here” speaks to me as a parent and teacher; and Anjoli Roy’s “Good Intentions, Bad Idea” speaks to me as a woman and skeptic. I know Emily from our MFA days at VCFA and Anjoli from our Salon days in NYC and work on Hawaii Women’s Journal. These two amazing writers with their gracefully told stories about fear and crime and choices wound up in the same issue, thanks to the cosmic work in a chamber of Hippo‘s heart. Read, read, read.
