2013 USU Faculty Author Spotlight

The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2013 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:

Shanan Ballam

Adjunct Instructor, Department of English

Ballam, Shanan. 2013. Pretty Marrow. Mobile, AL: Negative Capability Press.

Shanan Ballam looks trouble squarely in the eye-whatever its source. The result? A book of brave, unflinching witness, tempered by the promise of transformation. A book you'll want to get your hands on. Why continue to wade through swamps and freezing snow? Why ask searing questions? Like the rest of us, her speakers hope to be "swirled away to a place unblemished, where light can pour its honey on your face." -Lance Larsen, Poet Laureate of Utah
