Co-edited by Lisa Sandlin, UNO faculty member.
Times of Sorrow/Times of Grace: Writing by Women of the Great Plains/High Plains, is a collection of poetry, fiction, and memoir by noted writers from this region including New York Times Best Selling author Mary Pipher, New York Times Noted Author, Jonis Agee, as well as nationally recognized poets Marilyn Krysl, Hilda Raz, and Laurel Speer. Nestled side-by-side with these noted writers are the writings of regionally known poets and writers, and work by writers breaking into print for the first time. This beautiful 350 page-plus perfect-bound anthology, illustrated by Lincoln, Nebraska, artist Jana Harsch, is perfect for Holiday or birthday giving to any reader serious about women writers or Great Plains studies. Vibrant stories, poems and memoir address a wide range of subject matter from immigration in the early 20th century, to romance, family dysfunction, environmental issues, Native American perspectives, coming to terms with the death of a spouse or sibling, abuse, love, and loss.
