Sheila Ingle visits Page 158 Books to discuss her book Tales of a Cosmic Possum, a SIBA Okra Pick for Fall 2017. These eight stories are based on the lives of three generations of Appalachian women who worked in Upstate cotton mills. Passing on their traditions, speech and love for family, the Ingle and Moseley wives took care of their households and their community.

Sheila is a former educator with a passion for the stories of women who are often overlooked by history. Tales of a Cosmic Possum is her fourth book.
