Link Roundup: Online Conversation Starters

Beacon authors have been collecting laurels lately for their powerful writing and progressive ideas. Here's a sampling from this past week:

The May edition of the Internet Review of Books finds Tucson journalist Margaret Regan's The Death of Josseline to offer "A Desperately Needed Message."

Dr. Danielle Ofri, author of Medicine In Translation, has a stunning "Cases" piece in the Science section of the New York Times.

Finally, a wave of praise for Amie Klempnauer Miller's She Looks Just Like You on the The StrollerDerby blog, which quotes Salon.com's "delightful" interview with the author, plus over on Mombian. Also, ForeWord Reviews in their May/June issue, says: "She Looks Just Like You tells a story that parents from all sorts of 'categories' need to hear." And the June issue of Curve Magazine notes, "Motherhood can be scary for anyone, but when it comes to lesbian, Nonbiological moms-to-be, there was no real guidebook—until now. Miller talks about the excitements and difficulties that come from being the lesbian partner who doesn't give birth."
