Saint Paul Lives Here (In Minnesota) October 20, 2015 By Collegeville Institute Zach Czaia Foreword by Deborah Keenan Resource Publications, 2015 Visit this title on the publisher’s website » Unabashedly local and particular, these poems bring alive the sights, sounds, and people of Minneapolis and Saint Paul–the “twin cities” of Minnesota. In addition, they aim to think and feel their way through one of the most painful episodes in the history of the local church, the revelations of cover-up surrounding the sexual abuse of children by priests. The poet’s words present one mode of healing in a difficult hour, some nourishment as a community moves forward into a new day. Zach was a Summer 2015 writing workshop participant at the Collegeville Institute. Like this post? Subscribe to have new posts sent to you by email the same day they are posted.
