"Nin" is a mystical, mythical, magical fable set in the high-tech, modern-day world of air travel, telephones, computers and the World Wide Web. Nin Creed is a feminist poet who sets off to recover the lost writings of her mother, who died the day she was born. On the way, she encounters a legion of women writers who lived and wrote centuries ago and whose work, too, was lost to future generations of writers and readers.

The author, Cass Dalglish, is a novelist and poet who teaches creative writing and journalism at Augsburg College, where she is associate professor of English. Her first novel, "Sweetgrass," was nominated for a Minnesota Book Award. Ms. Dalglish, a native of St. Paul, now lives in Minneapolis.
