A New Book: A Quaker’s Life in Our “Interesting,” Tumultuous Times

Emma Lapsansky-Werner and Chuck Fager at the Quaker History Roundtable, summer of 2017

Emily Dickinson, # 1263:

Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise.

As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —


Chuck’s Limerick answer to Emily:

Dear Emily wants all the truth,
I gave it my best, but forsooth,
Some of All wouldn’t fit,
Or I hadn’t the grit,
So that goal’s far behind, with my lost youth.

(And some of the rest is uncouth.)

The book is available in paperback & Kindle/Ebook formats. Details here.

  1. There were no links on this page to go to the book and when I searched for it in the Kindle app, nothing showed up.

    I want this book, both on paper and in digital forms.
