Marge Rogers Barrett is a former Collegeville Institute writing workshop tutor.
Called: The Making & Unmaking of a Nun, a memoir by Marge Rogers Barrett, tells of her lively and free-spirited youth as part of a large family in a small town on a prairie in Minnesota; of her calling by God; and of her new calling to marriage and life as both mother and teacher. Along the way, we meet her remarkable family, both reveling and suffering with her as she experiences sometimes joyful, sometimes difficult times. In the end, this is a story of resilience and spirited immersion in all that life has to offer.
