Jennifer Hirt’s first book, “Under Glass: The Girl with a Thousand Christmas Trees,” has been published by the University of Akron Press. The book’s 12 essays follow the rise and fall of the Hirts’ family business – greenhouses – and the family itself.

She has received four Pushcart Prize nominations for writers of short stories, poetry and essays.
