READ AND TELL:
GOOD LIT, GOOD LIFE
Wednesday Feb. 28 12:30 p.m.
Join James McGinn, LPN, NCC of the Center for HOPE/Family Centers, Darien, for a monthly (last Wednesday) literary treat (poem, story, philosophical or inspirational essay) as springboard into sharing from our own stories and concerns.
As meetings progress, participants will also be invited (although not obliged) to share their own narratives, spoken or written, biographical or fictional and to share their own truths.
We will explore how creativity motivates, comforts, unsettles and keeps us on our toes. We will share the stories which most move and keep us going, the ideas which nurture a good life and help us through tough times. Come listen, interact, share inspiration and have fun!
