This is the personal blog of Laura McKenna. I’ve blogged since 2003, which is a pretty damn long time. I write about schools and families for some big name magazines and websites. My professional writer website has all that info.
Here, I call attention to articles or research that I find interesting — I’m a former college professor with a PhD in political science, so I like ideas. I write about family stuff, vacations, cute dresses, pretty books and art, parties, and life in the suburbs. So, if you don’t enjoy a post on Monday, come back on Tuesday to find something totally different.
