Sky Songs: Meditations on Loving a Broken World
Sky Songs is a collection of essays that takes inspiration from the ancient seabed in which Jennifer Sinor lives, an elemental landscape that reminds her that our lives are shaped by all that has passed through. Beginning with the conception of her first son, which coincided with the tragic death of her uncle on an Alaskan river, and ending a decade later in the Himalayan home of the Dalai Lama, Sinor offers a lyric exploration of language, love, and the promise inherent in the stories we tell: to remember.
Writer, teacher, mother, and certified yoga instructor, Jennifer Sinor is the author of several books of creative nonfiction, including, most recently, Sky Songs: Meditations on Loving a Broken World. The recipient of the Stipend in American Modernism, Jennifer has also been nominated for the National Magazine Award. When she is not writing or teaching or spending time with her husband, the poet Michael Sowder, and their two teenage sons, Jennifer can be found practicing yoga in Logan, Utah. A professor of English, Jennifer teaches creative writing at Utah State University. Read More
