Mary Karr is an award-winning poet and memoirist. She is the author of Lit, the long-awaited sequel to her critically acclaimed and New York Times best-selling memoirs The Liars’ Club and Cherry. “[Karr’s] most powerful tool is her language, which she wields with the virtuosity of both a lyric poet and an earthy, down-home Texan, “ wrote The New York Times about The Liar’s Club.

Her poetry collection, Sinners Welcome: Poems, traces the path of her troubled childhood and how it led her to the Catholic Church.
