Boston College alumna MoiraLinehan’s second collection of poetry, Incarnate Grace (Southern Illinois University Press, 2015), explores various meanings of the word margin. “Margin” is chosen by the poet after hearing the word in response to her breast cancer diagnosis. From her travels to Ireland and Pacific Northwest to her home in Massachusetts, Linehan links the mundane to the mythic, intertwining connections between scripture and nature, storms and loss, winter and light, and breast cancer and embroidery. Her earlier collection of poems, If No Moon, was named an Honor Book in Poetry in the 8th annual Massachusetts Book Awards. Her poem, “Last Wishes,” received the Foley Poetry Award from America magazine.
