He kept painting ... Dancing on waves / exultant as migratory birds
not staying in the nests / they had created, leaving behind
salt on the waves.
—Diane Marquart Moore, Author of Ridges

March 10, 2021: My Mother’s Story A Memoir by Sonia Alland

Documenting an immigrant family from the early 20th century, Sonia Alland addresses sensitive psychological threads and transformations as she observes her family with tender objectivity.

“Underneath her sadness was a strength invisible to me. How could I perceive that somewhere in her was that hardy 11-year-old determined to measure up to the demands put on her …Only now, do I realize that the image of my mother as a helpless victim was sorely limited. What was essential—her ingenuity, her resilience—was missing.”

May 3, 2021: Ridges Poems and Paintings by Diane Marquart Moore & Don Thornton

“In Ridges, Diane Moore creates a mystical space—a union of art, poetry, biography and nature—that honors Don Thornton’s life and his vivid paintings of Louisiana’s Chenier Plain.”—ROSE ANNE RAPHAEL

“Diane Moore’s empathetic poems expand readers’ understandings of Thornton’s paintings of the Chenier Plain. Her vivid words illustrate how live oak ridges’ ‘submerged and revived’ water levels affect plant and animal life as they adapt to this unique ecology.”—KATHLEEN HAMMAN
