Frustration, depression, rage, and pockets of joy: A diary of one woman’s first 30 days of motherhood
By Julie Fei-Fan Balzer January 9

One evening in November 1912, some new friends, all first-year students, gathered “to read aloud our literary efforts and to receive and deliver criticism.” They brought stories, poems, essays, plays, and fables, and they received far more than merely criticism.
