Alice Embree, Austin writer and activist, is a frequent contributor to The Rag Blog and collaborator on Rag Radio. She helped launch Austin’s underground newspaper, The Rag in 1966. With Thorne Dreyer and Richard Croxdale, Embree edited Celebrating The Rag: Austin’s Iconic Underground Newspaper in 2016. She has written for The Texas Observer and contributed to the 1970 anthology, Sisterhood is Powerful, edited by Robin Morgan.
In Looking Glass, Embree explores the intimate terrain of grief, the memory of an earlier Austin, and the joys and challenges of living a creative life. The author introduces the collection with these words: “I find that through the alchemy of writing, I’m able to disperse the fog and find the light.”
Looking Glass is the second in a series by NJP Publishing that will feature women writers. Looking Glass is available online at Lulu.com, Amazon, Ingram and Barnes and Noble, and is sold in Austin at BookWoman.
