      Sister Lou Ella Hickman Poetry Reading and Signing

      By The Book Bookstore announces the book signing and reading of 'she: robed and wordless', by Lou Ella Hickman, who is a widely published poet and also a Catholic religious sister.

      Sister Lou Ella Hickman is a member of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament of Corpus Christi, Texas. She has a master’s in theology and she taught on all levels, including college. Her poems and articles have been published in numerous magazines, including the anthology After Shocks: Poetry of Recovery for Life-Shattering Events, edited by Tom Lombardo.

      Sister Lou Ella is a former teacher and librarian. Her poems have appeared in numerous magazines such as America, First Things, Emmanuel, Third Wednesday, and new verse news as well as in four anthologies: The Night’s Magician: Poems about the Moon, edited by Philip Kolin and Sue Brannnan Walker, Down to the Dark River edited by Philip Kolin, Secrets edited by Sue Brannan Walker and After Shocks: The Poetry of Recovery for Life-Shattering Events edited by Tom Lombardo. She was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2017. Her first book of poetry entitled she: robed and wordless was published in 2015.

      Bishop Robert Morneau, Auxiliary Bishop of Green Bay, Retired, states in his Foreword, “In she: robed and wordless, Sister Lou Ella invites us to reflect on biblical women who encountered grace and sins, joys and sorrows, life and death. Employing the facility or reverent empathy and the gift of language, this poet opens up for us what might have transpired in the minds and hearts of these feminine scriptural characters.”

      We cordially invite you for Sister Lou Hickman's book signing and reading on November 16, 2019 from 1-3PM at By The Book Bookstore at 702 Ayers Street, Corpus Christi, Texas 78404.
