Reading: Mary Lea Carroll: Saint Everywhere

Annie Bloom's welcomes California author Mary Lea Carroll to read from her book Saint Everywhere.

While visiting Siena, Italy, Mary Lea Carroll grew fascinated with the remarkable story of St. Catherine of Siena and made a resolution: Whenever she was lucky enough to travel, if a shrine dedicated to a female saint was nearby, she'd visit it and learn about her. What started as a hobby grew into a journey she never expected, one rich with challenges and cappuccinos, doubts and inspiration, glasses of wine with strangers and moments of transcendence. Over eight quests, Carroll takes readers along with her as she seeks to learn something from a few great women of history, while looking for ways to be a better citizen of the world.

Mary Lea Carroll graduated from San Francisco State. Before raising children, she worked in travel, in the theater, and in Hollywood. While raising her children, she taught children's creative writing and helped her husband in his motion-picture advertising business. A contributor to the book Hometown Pasadena, she is a lifelong resident of Pasadena, California.
