Flock Together

B. J. Hollars

Praise from the Minneapolis Star Tribune

“…lively, passionate, melancholy, joyful and quirky, and it’s difficult to pin down what manner of book it is — natural history? Memoir? Poetic lament? It’s all and none of those, but always an endearing and highly readable book.”

Quilts and Human Rights

Edited by Marsha MacDowell, Mary Worrall, Lynne Swanson, and Beth Donaldson

Review in The Journal of Folklore Research

“That the authors include these quilts in their discussion speaks to their courage as well as their confidence in the intelligence of their audience. The authors have refused to bowdlerize the wide varieties of the human experience inherent in the text’s own subject matter, and in order to cope with this subject matter the text demands that the reader/viewer move beyond romantically sentimentalizing the folk and their lore as being inherently essentially good.”
