I’m currently working on a memoir project that is in large part about my Mennonite upbringing. I bought all three of these books as resources.
Caws, Peter, and Stefani Jones, eds. Religious Upbringing and the Costs of Freedom: Personal and Philosophical Essays. University Park: Pennsylvania State University Press, 2010.
MacKendrick, Karmen. Failing Desire. Albany: State University of New York Press, 2018.
Remer, Molly. She Lives Her Poems: Moments from a Year in the Forest. N.p.: Brigid’s Grove, 2018.
I recently went to a writing retreat at Laurelville Mennonite camp where we discussed the subject of theopoetics quite a bit. I bought Ewing’s, Lorde’s, and Remer’s books as a result because I feel the need to do more reading on the subject. I purchased Gay Latino Studies because I have done very little reading about the queer/Latinx intersection, something which needs to be remedied. All four were bought on amazon.com.
