Seattle area author, Mary Lou Sanelli, returns to our branch with a reading of her newest work, “A Woman Writing,” that explores the realities true to anyone thinking of making writing a part of their life. With her first new work in six years, Mary Lou “opens the curtain on the personal writing experience, expertly yet provocatively, asking us to see more, to know her more deeply.” (Aequitas Books, NY). From book clubs to Soroptimist, workshop presentations for other writers, regular contributions to Seattle City Living Magazine, Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Art Access, and NPR Radio affiliates, Mary Lou has contributed to both skill enhancement for those who have thought about writing, but also, the teachable moments of verbal presentation skills that apply in both voluntary and professional lives. The April program will share the life lessons that Mary Lou learned through writing: determination, persistence and the rollercoaster ride of choosing a writing life.
Once again, we will hold this program on a Saturday: April 22, at 10:00 a.m. at the Camano Island Library. Next Month, our meeting will be the evening of May 11, to celebrate and recognize our High School STEM Scholars and the selected Tech Trek Scholarship winners. Please contact Helen Smith, event coordinator, to volunteer your assistance. On Sunday, June 25, we will gather at the home of Joyce Leak, to meet our scholarship winners. We take a break for July, then kick-off the beginning of Mary Raymond’s Presidency, and thank Norma Mouton for her Past Presidential year, at our annual picnic, August 10. Details will follow in upcoming newsletters.
