Sunday, October 4th
On the cover of Newsweek in 1967, Sister Mary Corita became known as the Rebel Nun. Yet Corita herself was never outspoken — it was her artwork that spoke volumes. Her message was clear. Love. Peace. Joy. Godliness. What would Jesus do, she asked, long before the words became a politicized cliché.
CORITA KENT. ART AND SOUL. THE BIOGRAPHY. is the painstakingly researched account of one of America’s icons, the nun who made a world of difference and — to her surprise — simultaneously made a name for herself. For the very first time, author April Dammann brings readers a detailed biography, artwork that defines periods of Corita’s creative life, and the overarching spirituality of the woman who rose to fame as Sister Mary Corita in the tumultuous 1960s.
