A Life Speaks 

In 2019 I was hired by the Kresge Foundation to create a book honoring that year’s Eminent Artist: the poet and activist Gloria House, whose poetry is published under her name Aneb Kgositsile. Editor Nichole Christian and I built a book that housed her biography, essays from colleagues and students, and a selection of her poetry. 

The book was printed at Sheridan in Dexter, MI under the direction of Karl Dorn/KTD Print. We used a smythe-sewn binding for the text and an emboss on the paperback cover. The book is available, for free, from the Kresge Foundation. Check out this page to order your copy and learn more about their Eminent Artist award winners over the years.
