Kathleen Norris is the award-winning poet, writer, and author of The New York Times bestsellers, The Cloister Walk, Dakota: A Spiritual Geography, Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith, and The Virgin of Bennington. Exploring the spiritual life, her work is at once intimate and historical, rich in poetry and meditations, brimming with exasperation and reverence, deeply grounded in both nature and spirit, sometimes funny, often provocative, and always important. The San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle wrote about Norris, “One of the most eloquent yet earthbound spiritual writers of our time.”
