I settled on Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write by Gayle Brandeis.
A strawberry changed my life.
Interesting story – I meet Gayle Brandeis at the NCTE National Convention in San Francisco. She was doing a workshop for teachers based on her book. I can’t remember now what the exercise was about, but she and I talked after the session and I was impressed with her enough that I picked up a copy of the book and used a couple of things in my classroom. I might need to revisit it both for myself and for my students.
