AUTHOR TRANSLATES MOTHER'S POEMS

Recently published, The Petals of a Kansas Sunflower: A Mennonite Disapora, by Melvin D. Epp, features the poetry of his mother, Marie Harder Epp, a life-long member of the Kansas Mennonite community. The author has translated her poems from German into English, giving . . . a clear window into her fascinating Mennonite heritage.

A reviewer writes: "What began as poetry written on bits of paper is now a substantial volume on Kansas Mennonite lore."
