The Next Hyannis Library “Book Talk”

The GHCA Board meets the second Tuesday of each month in the Steamship Authority Conference Room on School Street in Hyannis.   All are welcome!
Come to The Hyannis Public Library on Wednesday, capsule  December 3, order 2014 to meet Nancy Jane Woodside, doctor editor of Sea Glass: Women Speak from America’s Newest Plantations.  This book evolved out of a weekly writing group for residents of Eve’s House, a home for women in transition located on Cape Cod.  Ms. Woodside encouraged each woman to write about her life in poetry and short stories.

Where do you go when you have been turned out, and how do you recount your story with only six words?  How and when do you find freedom from fear and realize the freedom to have a future? Let Nancy Woodside share the healing journey of so many women as they learn to remember, to feel, to hope, and to write.

Nancy Jane Woodside is a writer, politician, and community activist.  A Massachusetts native, Ms. Woodside has also lived and worked in the Midwest and West. Nancy has devoted herself personally and professionally to serving her community wherever she lives.  She now makes her home on Cape Cod and runs a private practice in Alternative Dispute Resolution

Eve’s House is just one of several homes in the non-profit Cape Cod-based Homeless Not Helpless organization.  The goal of HNH is to help residents move back into their communities as productive members. Educational and therapeutic services are an integral part of the program and implemented in a personalized and loving way.

The Hyannis Library “Book Talk” program is free and open to the public.

Copies of Sea Glass: Women Speak from America’s Newest Plantations will be available for sale and signing.
