Aura Camacho-Maas (Friday Fellowship Class of 1995) published her first book Uprooting Fear, The Heart’s Accidental Journey to the Divine in early 2020.  In any time, and certainly at this time, a study of introspection, fear, and revelation challenges us as individuals to consider how were are doing – or perhaps more precisely – how we are being.  More of Aura’s thoughts about the journey of confronting fear are available on a blog at her website. Her book is available in several e-reader formats and can be ordered from your local bookstore.  Also, Aura is working on a Spanish translation.  Follow her on Facebook, Twitter. or Instagram.


Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle (Friday Fellowship Class of 2014) debuts her first novel Even As We Breathe in September 2020.  Reflecting on place and listening with new ears are tools refined each time we hear a story. A review in Publishers Weekly notes how Annette’s novel moves through the Cherokee reservation in North Carolina to Asheville in the era of WWII.  The book is available for pre-order at local bookstores now.  An e-reader version will also be available.  Find more information about Annette and her writing at her website.  Follow her on Instagram or Twitter.
