I am pleased to announce the release of The Widows' Handbook edited by Jacqueline Lapidus and Lisa Menn. It contains selections by 87 poets, several of the Pushcart Prize winners and one a Pulitzer Prize winner. They reflect on widowhood in all its aspects from loss and grief to memories, coping, and living new lives. They write with anguish, tenderness, courage and humor about their experiences as the ones left behind. The foreword is by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who is a widow herself. I am honored to have a poem included in this marvelous collection. Readings are scheduled around the country. You can find the book on Amazon. If you're a widow or you know someone who is, look it up.
I'm the mother of three, grandmother of two, slave of two demanding cats. I've been a widow for four years and have taught resource courses for widows and widowers. I've written romance novels. See my website at www.eclectics.com/ lornamichaels. Currently I'm working on a memoir titled Stumbing Through the Dark.
