Andrea Miller is the deputy editor of Lion’s Roar magazine (formerly the Shambhala Sun) and the author of two picture books: The Day the Buddha Woke Up and My First Book of Canadian Birds. She’s also the editor of three anthologies, most recently All the Rage: Buddhist Wisdom on Anger and Acceptance. I spoke with Andrea on the heels of her trip to India to attend the International Buddhist Conclave, which afforded her the chance to attend sacred Buddhist sites. She has a brand new piece out in December, 2018 called “The Buddha Was Here.” This conversation discusses the impetus and creative process behind The Day The Buddha Woke Up, out now from Wisdom Publications (2018).
