Nana's Sunday Dance by Fay Picardi

Fay Picardi announces the publication of Nana's Sunday Dance. In it she tells stories of her Appalachian past and telling stories is what Fay does best. She writes of dances and dresses; cabins and trains; ghosts and gullies. Her poems evoke a past that appears before us in all its detail and emotion. As if by magic, she forces us to recall our own memories of childhood.
