Posted By on Wed, Oct 27, 2010 at 9:00 AM

Local writer Andrea Hernandez Holm has had a story published in the anthology Wisdom of Our Mothers from Familia Books ($14.95, 296 pages).

Summary (from a press release):

The mothers profiled in the stories are human. Their virtues are balanced by their flaws, and in some cases, the lessons learned from those flaws form the basis of the story. The anthology explores maternal wisdom in various categories: emotional, relationship, and practical skills; virtues, humor, and heritage.

In Andrea Hernandez Holm's chapter, "Prayers and Other Ofrendas" she writes about the lessons of faith and humility taught by her mother's example. Born and raised in the desert of central Arizona, Andrea is a writer of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. She is a keeper of stories and a teller of stories, most of her writing focusing on the exploration of identity.
