Author/Artist Bio

Sheri Reynolds has published both poetry and fiction in such venues as Chant and Allegheny Review. Her first novel, Bitterroot Landing, published in 1994, was nominated for the GRANTA Young American Author Award. Her second novel, The Rapture of Canaan, was published in 1995 and was an Oprah Book Club selection. Her third novel, A Gracious Plenty, was published in 1997 to high acclaim. Publishers Weekly said of A Gracious Plenty, "Reynolds's lyricism and the gentle voice of her heroine carry this poignant but redemptive story."
