Welcome to the New Ruth Suckow Memorial Association Website





Ruth Suckow was a famous writer with Iowa roots; this website was created by the Ruth Suckow Memorial Association (RSMA) to celebrate her literary legacy, and to help readers find more information about her life and work--as well as several sample stories. 
The pictures above are of Ruth as a young woman, in mid life, and with her husband, Ferner Nuhn.  Several years after her death, Ferner helped to establish the Ruth Suckow Memorial Association to make sure that new generations of readers would be able to read her short stories and books. 

This year's Annual Meeting comes back to the Cedar Valley: we will meet at 10 am at the Cedar Falls Public Library on Saturday, June 7th, 2014.  We will discuss Ruth's memoir, "Myself" after lunch.  More details will come to members after the New Year. Visitors are welcome for our book discussion!

New Pages Added--and Ferner Nuhn is on Wikipedia!
Please check out the new page on Ferner (Resources on Ferner Nuhn) as well as Mentions to discover what other websites are saying about Suckow & RSMA (Links to Posts on Blogs), Writing about Suckow (for another chance to read Marsha's poem on Suckow), and RSMA News (for updates about projects and events).  Find a reference to Suckow, a new photo, or have information about one of Ruth or Ferner's relatives? Please contact Cherie, web master, at cheriedargan@gmail.com

We also now have the wikipedia entry about Ferner up and ready for viewing.

In addition, this website may look the same, but we now have been approved for Google Apps for Non Profits, which gives us a larger web space.


  Our Blog
The blog is another source of information about our organization and includes the opportunity for you to comment on postings. 

Some people find us through the Wikipedia article on Ruth Suckow; however, if you haven't seen it yet, here it is. 
We are still working on the entry for Ferner Nuhn; just when I thought it was nearly done, we discovered more information, which is a good thing!
