Praise for A Cartography of Peace
“Whatever the price of A Cartography of Peace, it’s a fraction of what the book will be worth to a reader. These are poems to get you through the winter, move you through the dark, and help you love the world again. Jean Connor’s pure and modest singing reminds me why I came to poetry in the first place.”
“I’m happy to say that Jean Connor is not one of those poets who aspire to be a force of nature. Rather, her temperament and sensibility incline her to mix with nature’s silences, subtleties, and paradoxes. She has the rare gift of being able to startle us with equipoise, sometimes even with bemusement.”
Jean L. Connor spent most of her life in New York State and Vermont. A graduate of Middlebury College and Columbia University, she worked as a librarian for over 30 years in New York State. After retiring, she began writing poetry. She attended several workshops around the country, including The Atlantic Center for the Arts where she studied with William Stafford. In 2001 she was the winner of the Passager Poetry Contest. This is her first book of poems.
