The August Issue
The August issue of Lake Waban Blue is now available!
With this issue, we have expanded our focus to include personal essays, book descriptions, and thoughts on writing. This issue includes the following three pieces:
- Time to Exhale, a personal essay by me :) — actually a post from my blog — about the mixed, but mostly happy, feelings of dropping my youngest daughter off at college.
- A description of The Immigrant Princess — a novel by Variny Yim which focuses on the lives of three generations of women from the Cambodian royal family who fled the country right before Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge invaded Phnom Penh on April 17, 1975 and led the country into its darkest period also known as the Killing Fields.
- What if we didn’t have writing that took longer than 8 seconds to read? by Shivaji Bhargava, CEO of The Right Margin, where she discusses the outlook for writing in the face of increasingly shrinking attention spans.
We hope you enjoy!
