Book Launch for Red Riding Hood's Sister by Sarah Webb
Join us on Sunday March 11th at 4pm for the launch of Sarah Webb's new book of poetry, Red Riding Hood's Sister.
Sarah Webb taught English at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma and for over a decade edited poetry for its interdisciplinary journal, Crosstimbers. A Buddhist for many years, she presently co-leads a Zen writing group at the Austin Zen Center and helps edit Just This, a magazine of the Zen arts. Her poetry collection Black (Virtual Artists Collective, 2013) was named a finalist for the 2014 Oklahoma Book Award and for the 2014 Writers' League of Texas Book Award.
Teaching and publishing, raising a daughter, practicing Zen—this is a life she won through to after a hard start. Red Riding Hood's Sister tells the story (one version of a story) of an earlier time when violence and mistake overwhelmed a young girl. Brought to a standstill, she turned at last to find a way out. She offers this book as a map to others lost in abusive marriage or walking away, trying to make sense of what happened. May we heal.
