The Bold Women’s Bundle
Our two most recent Legacy Authors, Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Grace Cavalieri, are the kind of authors that make reading an adventure. Their career spanning, multi-genre collections make a great pair.
Linda, a globe-hopping essayist, poet, and journalist, brings you into dense jungles and sinking bogs, introduces you to the splendor of worldliness in Venice and the excitement of dance and art in San Francisco, all the while showing you the through-lines of human identity. Adventure in Navigating the Divide is an act of radical openness, and a means of discovering life and self.
Grace, Poet Laureate of Maryland, takes the reader on a different sort of adventure in her collection Other Voices, Other Lives. Instead of exotic world-travel, her poetry and plays take the reader on a sort of soul-travel—an equally risky and rewarding endeavor. In this book, the reader meets the doomed reality-TV star Anna Nicole Smith, the early American feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, and many other unique women including, in her more personal poetry, Grace herself.
Navigating the Divide
Navigating the Divide is a career-spanning, multi-genre collection from the award-winning indie literature legend, Linda Watanabe McFerrin. In poetry, essays, and fiction that are often profoundly personal and astoundingly surreal, this world traveler and literary explorer busts walls, erects bridges, and ambiguates genre. This multi-faceted collection sets out to attempt its namesake, to “navigate the divide” – between spiritual and physical, between thought and desire, between individual and collective.
Other Voices, Other Lives
Other Voices, Other Lives: A Grace Cavalieri Collection is a selection of poems, plays, and interviews drawn from over forty years of work by one of America’s most beloved and influential women of letters. The author of 23 books of poetry and 26 produced plays, and the founder of the legendary radio interview program, The Poet and the Poem, Grace Cavalieri has won multiple national awards for her writing and her service to literature. She currently resides in Annapolis, Maryland.
