Memoirs

I enjoy reading memoirs.

Cynthia Reyes – the blog of Canadian author Cynthia Reyes – wrote A Good Home: A Memoir and An Honest House: A Memoir, Continued.  I reread both books this year, and you can learn more at her site.

Luci Shaw is another author I reread, her poetry and prose.  God in the Dark: Through Grief and Beyond is a classic.  Adventure of Ascent: Field Notes from a Lifelong Journey is another generous book.  Luci’s official website has more information; see the All Titles page.  She also has a page for New Releases.

Friends

So many ways to enjoy poetry: reading, writing, and reviewing what we have written so far.  These are poems from the archives on this site.
