Ina Coolbrith | Mormon Writers

This famous Mormon author was a child prodigy, with her works finding publication before she hd reached her teens. However, life quickly unravelled for the celebrity Mormon writer when her marriage broke apart due to the death of their infant son. Later in her life, she lost everything to a house fire but was saved by her colleagues who painstakingly built another house for the famous Mormon author.

As the first laureate of California, Ina Coolbrith was one of the most recognised and appreciated Mormon authors for her generation.
