Celebrating Our Culture
The Spiritual Journey of Jan Willis
by Pam Kingsbury

Despite having left Alabama three decades ago Jan Willis still thinks of Birmingham as "home". When the winters in Connecticut are harsh, she smiles and asks herself, "How did I get stuck up here?". In her memoir, the author and editor of six previous academic books on Buddhism, turns inward writing about the wounds of race and the healing process of envisioning positive human emotions. When Willis, who has been writing since high school finally "stopped denying" that she yearned to be a "writer", everything worked in a neat circle to publish and promote Dreaming Me.
