Out of the Shadows by Patricia Schnapp, RSM with Illustrations by Maura Barga, RSM
Prose-poem sketches of prisoners and others we rarely see.
In prisons and homeless shelters across the country, men and women live out their days and nights largely hidden from us.
And there are others - the invisible, who are physically or emotionally burdened. Because they navigate their varied challenges without fanfare, we tend to overlook them. Yet all have stories, these brothers and sisters. The prose-pomes in this book, which give glimpses of our hidden fellow travelers, represent an attempt to bring them, even briefly, out of the shadows.
Patricia L Schnapp and Maura Barga are both members of the Sisters of Mercy, Couth-Central Community.
