Local Author Talk: Linda Freeman

Thursday, June 27 at 7:00pm

Join us as local resident, Linda McCauley Freeman, reads from her full-length poetry collection, The Marriage Manual. Relying on both narrative and lyrical sequences, as well as haiku-like explorations, this book takes the reader through the emotional geography of married love and the ever-repeating cycle of hope, disappointment, despair, fear, joy and finally, mature love.

This reading will be followed by a Q & A and book signing.
