My New Chapbook, Nothing More to Lose, Coming Soon from The Poetry Box!
Based on Therese Kolbert Dieringer's awe-inspiring autobiography, My Life – Lived and Remembered: A journey through Hungary, Germany, and America, this chapbook traces her family's escape from the Nazis in 1944 Hungary through seven starving years in Germany to their arrival in the US in 1952. Its 25 poems bear witness to the cruelty and kindness they endured and to the faith and resilience that sustained them on their journey. (Photos clockwise from upper left: Therese and Carolyn; Corky, Therese's husband, with her; Theresa Kolbert, Therese's mother; Carolyn and Therese select photos for the chapbook; the dress Therese's mother made her for a school play in Hungary.) Watch for the pre-sale announcement from The Poetry Box.
