Manage episode 285447140 series 2880163
In this episode, I am delighted to have another repeated Lit Blitz follower and submitter Chanel Earl join me to read and discuss her short story "Three Generations of Sonder" (https://lit.mormonartist.net/2020/06/three-generations-of-sonder-by-chanel-earl/) which was one of the twelve published pieces in the 2020 Mormon Lit Blitz. We explore some of the story's beautiful and haunting images, and how they help us as readers experience sonder for ourselves-- the realization that we are not the center of the universe, that every person who has ever lived, who lives now, or who will live in the future experiences a measure of joy and pain which are equally beyond our comprehension.
Also, we talk about the incredible gift of strawberry jam.
Those are the two most important takeaways from this episode, my friends.

And Chanel closed the episode by reading one of her past Lit Blitz submissions "I Dreamed That We Were Sister Wives": https://inscape.byu.edu/2020/05/04/i-dreamed-that-we-were-sister-wives/
