"We Show What We Have Learned" in Best American Nonrequired Reading
Our wait is over! Behold The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2011, the new home for Clare Beams' story "We Show What We Have Learned," which first appeared in HFR #46. We're so happy for Clare, who found a copy of the book with her name inside in her local Barnes and Noble, celebrity-like. I like to picture her falling to her knees and weeping, but I can't confirm that actually happened. Something close happened to me when I first read her amazing story, though. Go out and get it. It'll blow you away.
