About the Author
Judith Sornberger's previous full-length poetry collections are Practicing the World and Open Heart; she also wrote her memoir The Accidental Pilgrim: Finding God and His Mother in Tuscany. As a professor of English at Mansfield University, she taught poetry and creative nonfiction writing for twenty-five years, as well as creating, directing, and teaching in the Women's Studies program.
"In keeping with the author's long history of skillful and accomplished writing, the poems contain stunning images and remarkable lines, and give voice to the connections we have with one another that reveal our most important quality, compassion."
--Mary A. Hood, Professor Emerita, University West Florida

"I Call to You from Time is a lyrical collection of free verse and accomplished fixed forms--not of saintly supplications, but of prayer as 'a there / [we] often cannot enter.' But it also is a book of unexpected annunciations and epiphanies."
--Marjorie Maddox, author, and winner of the 2019 Foley Poetry Prize from America Magazine

"In I Call to You from Time, Judith Sornberger, with unwavering intelligence and a practiced eye, reveals the joys and sorrows of living in today's world. . . . Both meditation and prayer, the collection invites us into the poet's soul and opens our own soul to the richness of everyday life."
--Mary K. Stillwell, author of Maps & Destinations

"Judith Sornberger's stunning new volume, I Call to You from Time, forges a healing affinity between prayer and imaginative work, each an encounter with a wilderness so sublime. . . . A deeply wise and beautiful book."
--Bruce Bond, author of Blackout Starlight

"Judith Sornberger has an ear for the 'deep down things.' Her poetry touches on the ways of the spirit without sentimentality but with great lyrical beauty."
--Amy Frykholm author of Julian of Norwich: A Contemplative Biography
