Sharon Cumberland publishes new poetry collection

May 3, 2017

Professor Sharon Cumberland has published a new poetry collection, Strange with Age (Black Heron Press).

Award-winning author and Washington State Poet Laureate Kathleen Flenniken writes: “Strange with Age is proof that wisdom—the real, hard-earned kind, built of experience, intelligence, faith, and yes, age—does not take the place of desire, but stands arm-in-arm with it offering truth, consolation, and a lovely sense of humor.​”

One of the biggest fans of Cumberland's new book is none other than Seattle University President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., who said at a recent open forum, "Her poetry is just wonderful. It's great to have a poet among us."
