Harrington worked her way through college as a nurses' aide and wrote The Hands of Strangers because she 'cannot forget the 'girls' I worked with or the 'residents' under my care. I haven't forgotten what I saw, heard, felt, or learned.'" American Poets Continuum Series #130. 75 pp. ISBN: 978-1934414545.
