Walk slowly into the small prairie town of Lemmon, South Dakota, where there is time and space for deep contemplation. Kathleen Norris's search for a quiet place to write led her to the Dakota plains and, remarkably, to the world of a Benedictine monastery.

A recipient of both Guggenheim and Bush Foundation grants, Norris has published five books of poetry and many other books.
