The Geography of Memory

I had the privilege of hearing Jeanne Murray Walker read several times from her memoir-in-progress, The Geography of Memory, while I was a graduate student in the M.F.A. program at Seattle Pacific University (in which Walker is one of the poetry mentors). The book examines both family history and personal memory alongside the story of Walker’s caring for her mother, who has Alzheimer’s disease. And it’s beautifully written.

Over at The High Calling, they’re reading The Geography of Memory together, and I can tell you: it’s worth a look.
