In Nest. Flight. Sky: On Love and Loss, One Wing at a Time award-winning memoirist Beth Kephart returns to the form for the first time in years to reckon with the loss of her mother and a slow-growing but soon inescapable obsession with birds and flight. Kephart finds herself drawn to the startle of the winter finch and the quick pulse of hummingbirds and the hungry circling of hawks. She discovers birds in the stories she tells and the novels she writes. She hunts for nests, she waits for song, she learns the stories of bird artists, she waits, again. Nest. Flight. Sky. is about the love that endures and the hope that saves us. It’s about the gift of feathers. Coming shortly, from Shebooks.
