About Culture Bean

I am a mother; a pre-published children’s author; a published academic and children’s book reviewer; and, although I loathe the term, a mommy blogger. I love to read; go to movies and theater; explore museums; and watch television. As a professor, I challenge my students to think critically about the media with which they engage. I’ve started this blog because I think it’s time I put my money where my mouth (pen, keyboard, Power Point presentation) is.

Culture Bean will engage with all forms of media and print culture.  I will review as well as muse. I will advocate. My critical insertions will be both low brow (rants and raves as a fan) and high brow (colored by my academic training and tastes). Above all, I hope to start a conversation with anyone who cares to thoughtfully join in.
