My essay, "The Tapestry of Place" appears in the new issue of THE ALGONKIAN. This is "a small periodical about books, authors, and publishing, prepared from time to time for friends of Algonquin and any others who might take joy in it."

I enjoy reading these essays, not only to find out about the new books forthcoming from Algonquin, but to read perspectives from each author on how their stories came to be, or what influenced them in the approach they took to their particular story.
