Biographical Information

"With Longing for Darkness, Tara and the Black Madonna, Galland tapped a great spiritual hunger for the feminine face of God. (It was the first book published on the Black Madonnas in the U.S..) This June, 2007, Penguin brought out a new edition of this ground-breaking classic (first published in 1990). Her next book, The Bond Between Women, a Journey to Fierce Compassion (Riverhead) gave voice to the passionate lives of women activists struggling spiritually and physically to overcome violence and hatred in Brazil, India, Vietnam, and the U.S. Her newest book, Love Cemetery (HarperOne) tells a quintessential American story of race, land theft, environmental destruction, and family, The story of Galland's response to a request from an African-American elder to help her get back into Love Cemetery, an historic communal burial ground, reveals the many ways that the shadow of slavery continues to bind us to a past many would forget or deny. Yet, for us "to have a common future we have to reconstruct our common past." The story of Love Cemetery points the way to our shared future and opens up a path to reconciliation." [1]
