Cathryn E. Smith
|Cathryn E. Smith is an English professor and a published poet. She received a fellowship in 1999 from the New York Foundation for the Arts in Creative Nonfiction in support of this work. Smith wrote this book as a way to deal with the grief of losing her father to Alzheimer’s disease. What she discovered by working through the writing process is that a person can lose a loved one physically but find that person spiritually.
