ARC Arrival: Turnings

Turnings: Lyric Poems Along a Road by Donald R. Fletcher

Publisher: Outskirts Press, Inc

I received this book from the author through Bostick Communications.

About the book: Part memoir and part anthology-this book is a spiritual autobiography. Don describes in vivid scenes the road he has taken through a long life and the epiphanies that have come to him along the turnings of that road. And because he has a gift of lyric poetry, he includes a rich selection of poems written as his life experience unfolds, marking the evolving of a sensitive spirit. (from the book cover)

About the author: Donald R. Fletcher grew up in pre-WWII Korea, earned degrees in English and theology at Princeton, and has lived and worked in Chile, Mexico and the Caribbean, and in the southwest, south and east of the U.S. He has taught at high school, college and university levels and served extensively in Presbyterian and ecumenical churches. A creative thinker and writer, he is the author of I, Lukas, Wrote the Book, Doors of Bronze, and View from the Playroom Floor, as well as numerous poems, plays and prose pieces.
