About the Author

Kendrick, Brent L.: - Dr. Brent L. Kendrick taught more than 7,000 students at Laurel Ridge Community College (Middletown, VA) over a twenty-three-year career. They applaud his enthusiastic, passionate, and energetic teaching style. One student commented, "Dr. Kendrick could excite a stone to write." He is widely known for his scholarly work on Mary E. Wilkins Freeman and is the editor of her collected letters, The Infant Sphinx, praised by The Journal of Modern Literature as "the most complete record to date of Freeman's life as writer and woman." He is currently working on a new, two-volume update-Dolly: Life and Letters of Mary E. Wilkins Freeman. Vol I: The New England Years (1852-1901). Vol II: The New Jersey Years (1902-1930). He earned his Ph.D. in American Literature from the University of South Carolina. After a twenty-five-year career at the Library of Congress-where he received the institution's Distinguished Service Award-he relocated to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and taught at Laurel Ridge Community College from 1999-2022. The State Council of Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) named him one of the top twelve educators in the Commonwealth (2008). He received the Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence (Virginia Community College System, 2010). He was a Chancellor's Professor (2012-2014). He was the first recipient of the Susan S. Wood Professorship for Teaching Excellence (2016).
