The Grace of Ordinary Days

Bernie Saunders presents his first-hand account of collaborating with his poet mother, Kay Saunders, in writing the book, The Grace of Ordinary Days. Described as "Tuesdays with Morrie meets Georgia O'Keeffe," their story is a rare glimpse into the separate but inseparably linked lives of a mother and son.

With the holidays approaching, The Grace of Ordinary Days story is the perfect preparation for upcoming family celebrations. Kay's and Bernie's story may resonate with your own relationships and may prompt you to recount, with a loved one or by yourself, the grace of your own ordinary days. More details.
