    with Nancy Chiarello

    Friday, April 3
    7:00-8:00 pm

    Life is an adventure! You never know where it will take you. Nancy Chiarello has worked in many arenas, from corporate to jewelry sales to becoming a licensed massage therapist. Then - much to her surprise - at the tender age of 70, she began writing poetry.

    Come hear Nancy tell her story and read from her collection, Soul Writing, including poems like “Finding Your Path,” “The Table”, “Feet”, and the uplifting “The Red Boa” - in which she encourages us to don that iconic scarf and become in our imaginations whoever we want to be.

    Take to the library your questions, your poetic souls, and most importantly, your sense of lightness and fun.

    Refreshments will be served, but please, bring your own boa.
