Lorri Neilsen Glenn in Threading Light: Explorations in Loss and Poetry offers a compelling and poetic work. This collection of linked prose explores Neilsen Glenn's journey into poetry and deepening understanding of poetry as a model of secular compunction that serves as a form of prayer. Here are personal essays about loss from childhood through to adulthood as well as essays about Neilsen Glenn's initiation into the practice of poetry that was both timely and necessary. Neilsen Glenn is the author of four books of poetry and her non-fiction has been shortlisted and won awards in contests sponsored by Prairie Fire, Event, as well as the National Magazine Awards. She has been the Poet Laureate of Halifax.
