The Norwich Bookstore: A Celebration of Donald Sheehan

The Norwich Bookstore: A Celebration of Donald Sheehan from CATV 10 on Vimeo.

On June 24, the bookstore presents The Grace of Incorruption: The Selected Essays of Donald Sheehan on Orthodox Life and Poetics, the new book from the late Executive Director of The Frost Place. Members of the poetry community — Cleopatra Mathis, Phyllis Katz, and Baron Wormser — will read from Sheehan’s book and discuss his contributions to the world of writing.

Professor of literature, scholar, teacher of poets and poetry, convert to the Eastern Orthodox Church, and man of prayer, Donald Sheehan wrote the wide-ranging essays in The Grace of Incorruption with a common commitment to understanding the ways in which the ruining oppositions of our experience can be held within the disciplines of lyric art — held “until God Himself can be seen in the ruins… and overwhelmingly and gratefully loved.”
