Writing to Change the World

By Mary Pipher

Read Reviving Ophelia ages ago, and thought I'd pick this up to see what she had to say about writing.

And, well, it was kinda clunky. It was OK, but nothing special. Not terribly inspiring either. But I do want to check out The Middle of Everywhere, which she wrote about the immigrant/refugee experience in America -- their interactions mainstream American culture and how they are viewed and dealt with by the rest of us non-first-generation folks. Based on her experience with immigrant communities in her home of Lincoln, Nebraska -- the "middle of nowhere."
