Books That Have Meant a Lot to me

Maggie
The list author says: "For 27 years I was an elementary classroom teacher and a middle-school language arts teacher. My interests are writing, reading, and playing piano. I have given poetry readings in the southwest, and have published a book of poetry. My reading interests are poetry, memoir, and non-fiction."

In the Palm of Your Hand: The Poet's Portable Workshop
"If you are serious about writing poetry, this book will serve you on so many levels. The author meets you where you are in your development and moves you to poetic places you might never think possible. This is a book to which I return again and again."
Listening in the Silence, Seeing in the Dark
Listening in the Silence, Seeing in the Dark
"I met the author at a book signing. When I asked her why she wrote this book about her son's traumatic brain injury resulting from a car crash, she said, "To bear witness." I have never forgotten that. What an extraordinary woman--mother, professor, writer. You will be richer for having read this extraordinary book."
Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
"This is the first book on writing I ever read, and what a great introduction it was. Anne Lamott has that way with words that simultaneously makes you laugh while encouraging your writing process."
Epilepsy: A New Approach
Epilepsy: A New Approach
"I was intrigued by the entire title--Epilepsy: A New Approach: What Medicine Can Do-What You Can Do To Help Yourself. It was that last part, "What You Can Do To Help Yourself" that caused me to purchase this book. And how glad I am that I did. This book is full of information the epileptic must have."
