Neufeldt, Leonard. Yarrow: Poems. Windsor, ON: Black Moss Press, 1993.
I bought this book because I’ve been doing some writing about Mennonite poet Di Brandt, and the collection has a poem dedicated to her (“The Tree with a Hole in Our Front Yard”) that I wanted to reference. I read this poem twenty years ago in a Mennonite Literature course in college and it has stuck with me.
Stambaugh, Sara. Yon Far Country: A Social and Personal Memoir of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Kitchener, ON: Pandora Press, 2009.
I’m also doing some writing about Stambaugh’s novel I Hear the Reaper’s Song, which takes place in her hometown (and my ancestral hometown) of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I decided to order her memoir about the County to see if it is helpful for my writing.
