After a thirty-year career working with illiterate women in poor countries for the World Bank, Jerri Dell moved to rural Pennsylvania where she writes creative non-fiction and memoir. Blood Too Bright: Remembering Edna St. Vincent Millay is her vision of the book on which her grandfather, early 20th century author Floyd Dell, was working at the time of his death in 1969. She is currently writing a memoir of her travels for the World Bank and another memoir about growing up with her grandparents Floyd and B. Marie Gage Dell in Washington D.C. among the ghosts of their Greenwich Village friends.
