Mr. Bear reads from AND IF THAT MOCKINGBIRD DON'T SING: PARENTING STORIES GONE SPECULATIVE, a riveting collection of flash edited by Hannah Grieco that lifts up the rocks of parenthood to expose the frightening, fascinating, and vulnerable mess squirming underneath. Featuring the croons and tunes of singer-songwriter Minka Hoist (and a mini-interview!), plus a trip to Miss Mousie’s Apothekarium for some heady advice.
