Most of us wait for something. Sometimes it's a simple thing like our turn in line. It could be something profound like a change in a job. Waiting can even be a matter of life and death.
The idea of waiting became such a compelling idea that writers and editors Julie Sedivy & Rona Altrows decided to put together an entire book of essays about it.
The result is "Waiting," and the anthology contains non-fiction stories from award-winning aurthors such as Sharon Butala, Aritha van Herk, Susan Olding, and more.
Co-editor Julie Sedivy is the author of "Sold On Language" and has written for Politico. And co-editor Rona Altrows is the author of "The River Throws a Tantrum" and "At This Juncture."
They both spoke with Russell Bowers about the new collection.
