Jill Kandel's newest book, The Clean Daughter: A Cross-Continental Memoir, is a story about building family across cultural, linguistic, and geographical divides. Kandel’s essays have been published in multiple journals and anthologies and her poems have appeared twice in Rattle. Her first book, So Many Africas: Six Years in a Zambian Village (Autumn House Press, 2015) won the Autumn House Nonfiction Prize and the Sarton Women’s Literary Award. Kandel currently lives with her husband in Fargo/Moorhead, a few blocks away from the Red River. Kandel also blogs about writing and her recovery from brain injury.
