Editorial Reviews

Carol J. Pierman Pierman
Ann Stranahan’s poems are unerringly strong and refreshing, and they reveal wonders, in the very way that poetry should.

Meet the Author

Ann Stranahan was born in Richmond, Virginia. She attended St. Catherine’s School and graduated from St. Timothy’s School and from Smith College, with a BA in Art History. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Bowling Green State University.
She has committed much of her life to voluntary work with cultural and educational institutions in northwest Ohio, and with public broadcasting at both the local and national level. She is a long-time director of The Needmor Fund, a family foundation that seeks to bring about social justice through funding community organizing in cities throughout the United States. Her strong attraction to color and to visual art drew her to the handwork of the Hmong women documented in this book, and recently into movie-making. Although ongoing civic service is not the writing career she once imagined, she has led a writer’s life, giving voice to countless non-profit organizations, attempting to tell their stories in compelling language and images.Ann and her husband, Stephen, live in Perrysburg, Ohio, on a bank of the Maumee River. They have four children and eight grand-children. In1980 they built The Home Ranch, a guest ranch and cross-country ski lodge in Clark, Colorado, where for many years they have worked with their neighbors to preserve the agricultural tradition and landscapes of the lyrical Elk River Valley.
