(Kiswahili for ‘excommunicated’)
A memoir collection by Karen Celestan shares personal stories from her childhood and teen years growing up in Niagara Falls, New York. Selected essays detail her adult life in New Orleans, including her experience in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and her crisis of faith as a Catholic. The collection is a clear-eyed journey of loss, restoration, healing, and the power of soul music.
