Peggy Julian - Poetry
Upon her husband's retirement, Peggy Julian and her family moved to Bainbridge Island, a place which she describes on the cover of her book as having just the "the right mix of privacy and friendliness." Julian is the author of No Single Story (1984), a collection of verse with illustrations by Kathy Langhorn. Below is one poem from the collection:
