Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, Oct 1, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 194 pages
0 Reviews
Public speaker, poet, author, Unitarian minister, preacher of "New Thought" philosophy, protege of Edwin Markham, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, John Burroughs and Swami Abhedenanda, Anita Trueman Pickett (1881-1960) was instrumental in founding Rowe Camp and Conference Center. This feminist dared to live an unorthodox lite in early twentieth-century America. Pickett's spiritual journey, marriage, motherhood, career in the UU ministry and struggle to juggle these many roles make an astounding and resonant story in any time. Burnstine's work fills a blatant gap in UU, women's and American histories. Includes a chronology of her life.
