“Where the Stork Flies, by Linda Wisniewski, weaves elements of magical realism, the supernatural and time travel, but is at its heart a book about women, their connections to one another and to their families.”

– Susan Wagner, author of Unmuted: Voices on the Edge

“A charming story that combines a feminist perspective with the Black Madonna of Częstochowa…funny, touching, and thought provoking. ”

About Linda

Born and raised in Amsterdam, NY, a town that is a major character in my memoir, Off Kilter, and my novel, Where the Stork Flies, I have lived for most of my life in beautiful Bucks County, PA, where I teach memoir workshops for the Pearl Buck Writing Center. As a former journalist, I write about the connections we make by giving each other the time and space to be heard. My personal essays have been widely published in newspapers and literary journals, and I’ve been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
