When the Parallel Converge

Laura Dabundo, M.A. '77

Spanning the author’s spiritual pilgrimage, Laura Dabundo's (M.A. ’77) poems in When the Parallel Converge are inspired by a childhood in Johnstown, Pa., site of the Great Flood that claimed ancestors, a dark night of the soul after a missed plane connection, and a near fatal infection later in life.
