Monthly Program Meetings



Our Herstory series continues with Reese Taylor's topic; "Surprised to Be(come) a Poet after 50".  Reese is a poet, book producer and a mental health therapist among other things.

She has lived in Santa Fe, NM for over twenty years and has been writing most of her life but wrote and produced her first book in 2011.  Her intention is to talk with you about the surprise of this new vocation and involve all of you in the conversation so that you leave the meeting with some new ideas about approaching your own talents and heart's desires.
