Nancy Bo Flood's New Book is Available!

Story is a powerful way to build compassion and bridge understanding between cultures. Story has the power to heal as well as teach.

Throughout her life Nancy Bo Flood has enjoyed reading, writing, and the sharing of stories. Her work has focused primarily on children and young adults, as counselor, teacher, or parent. She has conducted workshops of child abuse, learning disabilities, play therapy, as well as creative writing.

Through either work or research, Bo has lived in Malawi, Africa, Hawaii, Japan, the western Pacific, and, most recently, the Navajo Nation Reservation. Legends and folklore are of particular interest to Bo, for they hold the magic and mystery of other people’s--or generation’s--beliefs. When we read, we learn--about ourselves and about someone, somewhere--or sometime--else.
