From Susan Buttenwieser, Teaching Artist:
“The following is the seventh anthology produced by the Brooklyn Public Library’s Services for Older Adults Creative Aging writing workshops during the pandemic. Since late September, the participants have spent Wednesday afternoons writing about their childhoods, their memories of growing up in Brooklyn, in England, in a traveling carnival around New England…They have shared happy and funny memories as well as painful ones. This is a unique collection of writers who have arrived every week with their hearts and minds open, and with incredible depths of kindness to one another. It is so inspiring to not only get to hear their words, but also to witness their warmth, respect and care-taking of each other.”
This program is part of the Brooklyn Digital: Connecting Through Creative Aging Initiative and made possible through support from The New York Community Trust with technical assistance provided by Lifetime Arts.
