Museum Cover

Praise for In the Museum of Surrender:

As we move through the museum of surrender—the rooms of loss, of grief, the poet gives us resilience, joy, and roots reaching “deep/into the dark”. . . and we want to be there when she sings her songs of strength and beauty, songs of life, songs for the living.
—Gary Lawless, co-owner, Gulf of Maine Books; author of Caribouddhism and In Ruins
