Reading Guides, VOLUME 10

Kathleen Norris – Intro Reading Guide

This week marked the 70th birthday of poet and memoirist.  In honor of the occasion, we offer this introductory reading guide to her work.

We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
 
 

5. The Quotidian Mysteries: Laundry, Liturgy and “Women’s Work”

Norris’s luminous reflections on the ordinary life of women likens domestic chores to liturgy—drawing meaning out of repetition. “A provocative blend of the personal and theological, showing how faith can permeate every aspect of life,”—Booklist.
