September 23, 2 pm: An Anthology of Prose and Poetry with Elayne Clift, M.A.
TAKE CARE: Tales, Tips and Love from Women Caregivers (Braughler Books, June 2017,) is a timely and important collection of prose and poetry by 21 contributors who have all been, or still are, caregivers. Their eloquently expressed experiences serve to support and validate other women who are caregiving – or may be in the near future. It also opens up a dialogue about the economic, psycho-social, and practical issues relating to caregiving. Please join Elayne Clift for a reading and discussion about this timely topic in Cedar Lane's Chapel.
