Sherry's Poetry Books
The Local Author Table
Meet Sherry Hanck
Poetry often arises from an unconventional inner landscape. What’s seen as wild lives in the heart of the beholder. Love’s Wild Journey – Poems from an Untamed Heart is a raw, no frills exploration of love. Wild Fire – Poetic Prisms, the second book, touches on shadow, light and nature. Wild & Free – Poetry of Living, Loving & Letting Go completes the “Wild” trilogy, coming full circle to the essence of love.
Sherry Sadoff Hanck moved to Bucks County 18 years ago from Manhattan, where she earned her BFA in Acting from NYU’s Tisch School and MA in Media Studies from The New School (though her real education came from living in NYC for nearly two decades). City mouse and country mouse, both, Sherry enjoys bucolic Bucks County with her husband, three daughters, two cats and two dogs.
Meet Alex Villasante
Alexandra Villasante has always loved telling stories - though not always with words. She has a BFA in painting and a MA in combined media(that's art school speak for making work out of anything). Alex has the privelgio of dreaming in both English and Spanish. When she is not writing, painting, or chasing chickens around the yard, Alex plans conferences and fundraisers for nonprofits. She lives with her family in Yardley, PA. You can find Alex on Twitter and Instagram @magpies and at website:
