A recipient of a fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and a resident at the famed Yaddo writers colony in Saratoga Springs, New York, Orr is a revered and much-admired poet. Representing her body of work, Jugglers & Tides is a comprehensive anthology of Orrs poems dealing eloquently and powerfully with such universal themes as childlessness, making love, pets, coping with loss, illness, friendship, overcoming childhood sexual abuse, lost love, loving for love, death, and erotic feelings. Poetry is Orrs life and her enthusiasm for it is contagious. People who listen to Orr will often say to her afterwards, I never really liked poetry, but I liked yours. It relates to things in my own life.
