Blackbird Flying: A Memoir

Sheila Nickerson ’00

The latest work by Sheila Nickerson ’00, Blackbird Flying: A Memoir, is a genre-blending narrative that begins in the intimate tangle of family and expands to the vantage of meditation. Nickerson finds parallels between the lives of the birds she watches and her family history—famine and migration; building and losing a publishing empire; alcoholism, estrangement, and even murder.
