The ordination of Episcopal women priests forty years ago this season heralded a new chapter in women’s ministerial history.

Darlene O’Dell has captured the moment and the movement in her new book, The Story of the Philadelphia Eleven which was published this spring by Seabury Books.

She has published two other books, I Followed Close behind Her (Spinster’s Ink) and Sites of Southern Memory: The Autobiographies of Katharine Du Pre Lumpkin, Lillian Smith, and Pauli Murray (The University of Virginia Press).jpeg

Her essay “That Little Blue Boy” was published last fall in Sugar Mule Literary Magazine. She has also published in Cobblestone, The Journal of Southern History, and The Pearson Custom Guide to American Literature, and she has served as the head writer in a National Park Service project on Jamestown, Virginia. She has taught at Clemson University, the College of William and Mary, and Brevard College and has designed and facilitated many writing workshops for both children and adults.

Suggested Reading:
