This week, the first feature story on Making It came out! The best part? My 10-year old took the photo they used for the article. The story ran online and printed in the good ol' physical paper. We will treasure our copy forever.
Big thanks to reporter Scott Marion for such thoughtful reporting. You can find the article and photo here, and an excerpt below (5-minute read).
“Being a parent or a teacher is tough enough under any circumstances, but a new book by an Edwardsville resident discusses the issues that make it even tougher in 2021.
“Making It: What Today’s Kids Need for Tomorrow’s World” is the first book by Stephanie Malia Krauss and will hit bookshelves and mailboxes on March 3.
The book tackles COVID, the economic crisis, racial uprisings, and the many other complex challenges we have all been experiencing, paying special attention to what it means for our kids and their futures.
“I’m pleased that as a working mom I managed to finish a book during a pandemic,” Krauss said.
“This will be one of the first books to come out on the market that talks about COVID. It’s deeply researched, but it’s also personal because I’m an educator and worried about my kids.”
