On the blog, we’ve got…a blog roundup! In the midst of continuing uncertainty, we figured it might be helpful to bring back some content that was intended to ease stress levels and increase feelings (and practices) of self-care.
So on the blog, we’re sharing a few of our favorite posts. Some written by experts in their fields, and others written by the team here at West Margin Press.

We enlisted the help of two experts to help parents communicate with their kids during this stressful time. We’re pleased to share a conversation with two practicing psychotherapists in Houston, Texas–Gayle and Mike Klaybor.

The WMP Mixtape
Music, much like the books we read, serves as a gentle yet engrossing escape. So we asked our West Margin Press team what they’re listening to as a way to escape the news of the coronavirus.
Every week we’ll be adding to our mix-tape with the contributions of our many authors and artists. It’s our hope that this playlist can continue to bring people together.
Stay tuned for blog posts coming every week. We’re all in this together, and we are here to share the expert, advise and imagination of our authors, artists, illustrators, scientists and chefs who make up the library of West Margin Press to help ease some of the uncertainty the coronavirus inevitably brings.
