The news is out: Miranda July is pregnant and has a child on the way.
At July's City Arts & Lectures appearance last night at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco, the subject of the writer, actor and director's treatment of children in her work was raised. (Children play a considerable role in her 2005 film Me, You, and Everyone We Know.)
At that point she took the opportunity to let the audience know that she was expecting a child herself.
