About the Author(s)

Anna Pettit Broomell (1887-1973) spent her life in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. She attended Friends Central School and Swarthmore College. She demonstrated her talent as an editor and an inspiration to writers through her work in organizing “the poets,” a literary group described in her Pendle Hill pamphlet Poets Walk In (PHP #77). In addition to her work on poetry, she chaired the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting committee that collected and edited The Children’s Story Caravan; she also collected and edited The Friendly Story Caravan and What Do You Think? She worked with the Friends Free Library in Germantown, the board of Pendle Hill, and Pendle Hill Publications.
