nunsAbout "Lesbian Nuns: Breaking Silence"
Nancy Manahan and the late Rosemary Keefe Curb first co-edited the book "Lesbian Nuns: Breaking the Silence" in 1985. The book went global, with translations into Italian, Dutch, German, and Spanish. In the new edition, released in May 2013, the co-editors reveal how the book came to be and what happened to their lives when, for the first time in history, a lesbian book from a small publisher went mainstream. Each nun in these stories describes her individual and searing path in, or out of, the convent to discover and face the truth of herself. Still myth-shattering, the stories remind us of the courage required to live--and love--in congruence with our authentic selves.

Nancy Manahan, Ph.D., is a retired community college English teacher. Her other books include "On My Honor: Lesbians Reflect on Their Scouting Experience" and the award-winning memoir "Living Consciously, Dying Gracefully: A Journey with Cancer and Beyond," written with her wife Becky Bohan. Nancy and Becky are founding members of the Minnesota Threshold Network, which educates Minnesotans about conscious dying, home after-death care, and green burials. They make their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
