Maria's voice is so Mello! It was so great to see the Swampscott Senior Center packed with people eager to hear local poet Maria Mello read from her new book, Bird Calls, on a blustery, ominous day! Center staff created a lovely tea to celebrate the author. Bird Calls, published by Four Square Press, is available at the Spirit 2 bookstore in Vinnin Sq., online at Amazon, and from the publisher at www.foursquarepress.com.
