Diane E. Glass
Diane Glass Believes in the Power of Stories
Diane Glass shares her own stories—through poetry, through memoir, through teaching. She also listens with compassion to the stories of others, helping them see the threads of wisdom, meaning, joy and loss that define a life. Whether she is rejoicing in the natural beauty of a prairie or dancing the rumba, Diane infuses that same energy and imagination into her writing, speaking to universal themes of longing, love and discovery. Her memoir, This Need to Dance: A Life of Rhythm and Resilience, recounts how growing up with spina bifida, addressing breast cancer and losing a stepson prepared her spiritually to guide others through life change and difficulty.

THE HEART HUNGERS FOR WILDNESS
The Heart Hungers for Wildness, Diane’s new book of poetry, recounts through verse a life well lived. Combining a writer’s appreciation for detail and a spiritual director’s ability to probe for depth, she brings new appreciation for experiences as diverse as ministering to people through soup-making to traversing Native American lands, as distinct as discovering the joys of grand mothering to sinking her feet into the soil of her native Iowa.
