A New Women’s Anthology by 50 Asheville Authors
A Great Gift Idea for Women Who are Readers*
Two of Mountain Made’s most popular authors, Celia H. Miles and Nancy Dillingham, are co-editors and contributors of a new anthology by 50 women writers entitled It’s All Relative: Tales from the Tree – celebrating the lives of women and their connections with their families.
According to Rob Neufeld, who writes the weekly Sunday book feature for our local newspaper The Citizen-Times:
“If you have biases against small press books or anthologies of local writers’ work, I recommend you lay them aside and take a look at “It’s All Relative” (Stone Ivy Press), 52 stories and poems by 50 WNC women authors writing about family.
You also might be skeptical about the theme; it’s so broad. Yet, there’s a shadowy, down-to-earth and at times magical quality to the telling that makes the collection striking and significant.
The editors, Celia Miles and Nancy Dillingham, who have collaborated on three other such collections, exhibit an eye (eyes?) for good writing. Consequently, we become familiar with authors who, in some cases, are finding new, powerful voices to employ.”
Celia and Nancy will be here Saturday November 14th, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM to autograph copies of this new book. We invite you to come down and chat with them about editing and writing books celebrating the lives of women.
- Note: the cover design was inspired by one of our other local artists: L. Gordon. We also have several of Ms. Gordon’s works on display. Feel free to view them after you have your chit-chat with Nancy and Celia!
