It’s time for another round of Meet The Author. Sheryl St. Germain has published ten books of poetry and prose, for which she has won numerous awards. Her most recent book is Navigating Disaster: 16 Essays of Love and Poem of Despair. She currently directs the MFA Creative Writing Program at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA. If you tuned into our 2-year anniversary live reading broadcast, you might remember Sheryl reading her heartbreaking piece, “It’s Come Undone: Crocheting & Catastrophe,” from our October issue.
Here’s a brief quote:
“Sometimes she worked with granny squares, stacking up hundreds of multi-colored squares next to her on the sofa, then, months later, stitching them together in a lively design, making a whole of pieces in ways I’m sure she wished she could do with the broken bits of her life with my father.”
