Teacher, musician, artist, naturalist and poet Maria Mello will read from her new collection, Bird Calls, at the Senior Center on Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 3:00- 4:30.
Rooted in the natural world, Bird Calls is arranged in sections named for different species of birds with corresponding themes of longing, discovery, loss, communion, and wisdom.
Mello brings the force of a life fully lived to her highly readable and memorable poems. Her work has been published in various small presses, and is often read aloud to enthusiastic audiences.
All are welcome, and refreshments will be served. Signed copies of the books will be available for purchase.
Bird Calls is published by Four Square Press. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Maria's author page at www.foursquarepress.com.
