- 2014 INDIES Finalist
- Finalist, Poetry (Adult Nonfiction)
By turns poignant and hopeful, raging and joyful, interweaving personal and political, connecting family history to moments within a larger historical arc of injustice and oppression bearing witness to those whose stories have fallen into the fractures of history and been lost. They ask us to recall tyrants of the past as similar abuses of power repeat in the present. Forgiveness and understanding vie with the memory of events that can never be redressed, only remembered, and sometimes redeemed.
