Author Susan Ball Faeder says, “Glennon Doyle, author of the New York Times bestseller Untamed (among others), founded Together Rising ‘as an expression of her belief that the surest way to lift a family or community is to lift one woman at a time—that when a woman rises, she brings her people up with her.’ I concur.”... read more

I chose this nonprofit organization to receive $1-a-book proceeds from sales of Pennsylvania Powwow because of the deep and important research the Center conducts year-round. They provided me with everything from information on the so-called "devil's door" painted on some barns, to writings and videos about the uniquely Pennsylvania Dutch (Deutsch) tradition of healing called powwowing, or braucherei.  The cover image on my novel comes from a photograph by Site Director Patrick Donmoyer, painted by artist Heidi Derstler Eckman.
