About The Author



Susan Meehan is a New Englander transplanted to the District of Columbia where she became involved in city politics, working in the Mayor’s office. She’s an activist and a writer; and The Color of Truth is her debut book of poems. She writes piercing poems about Washington, D.C. In this book she also presents a family album of her Irish ancestors, and other poems of observation and introspection. Many writers find out who they are from writing. These poems are a portrait of a woman now in her eighth decade, who knows who she is and shares the fullness of life with her readers.
