Released in October, Spirit Sister Dance is Norbert Krapf’s 15th full-length collection of poetry. In it, Krapf navigates memories and emotions surrounding the death of his stillborn sister, all the while bringing light to the darkness of grief. Although centered on a loss, this collection tells a story of healing, of becoming attuned to the comforting spirituality of the mundane and the eternity of a bond. Norbert Krapf is a former Indiana Poet Laureate. His previous books include fourteen poetry collections and three volumes of prose memoirs. He has a poem in stained glass at Indianapolis International Airport. He has received the Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, a Creative Renewal Fellowship from the Arts Council of Indianapolis, and a Glick Indiana Author Award. He performs poetry and blues with Indiana bluesman Gordon Bonham.
