Jean Sands began working on Close But Not Touching right after she published her first book of poetry, Gandy Dancing, in 2009. By 2012, the manuscript was 90 percent complete. That’s when her failing health began to drain her creative energies and she put the project aside. After Jean died, her husband, Jack Sheedy retrieved the manuscript from her computer and enlisted the aid of her longtime friend and fellow poet, Cortney Davis. Cortney assisted Jack with sequencing and proofreading the poems. Join Jack as he reads from Jean’s book and also talks about the woman and poet her knew and loved.
