In Awareness and Wonder: An Interview with Susanna Childress

May 6, 2019

Listen in as Women in the Academy and Professions associate Caroline Triscik interviews author, poet, and English professor Susanna Childress. Susanna offers her thoughts on finding wonder and awe in the midst of everyday life in her roles in academia and as a mother and wife. Susanna also shares with us her intensely personal story of the loss of her third son late in the second trimester of pregnancy, as well as navigating that grief while in her journey into tenured faculty position. Finally, we discuss the gift of entering into sorrow and suffering together.
