Today’s book launch of The Inner Voice and the Outer World was a resounding success. The book is a compilation of writings by veterans and their families from the Gloucester Writer’s Center “Cape Ann Veterans Writing Workshop” (2013 -2017), which was taught by the book’s editor, Dorothy Nelson. Many of the contributors were at the event to read excerpts of their poems and stories and to sign books. Shaped by the author’s experiences in 20th and 21st century wars, the stories shared were deeply moving. Readers and audience were in many instances moved to tears.
The Gloucester House was packed, so much so, that Lenny opened up the adjoining second function room to accommodate the overflow of people.
Best wishes and congratulations to the Writer’s Center, Ms. Nelson, and the contributors for sharing the stories of our local veterans and their loved ones.
The contributors are:
FRANCIS J. SULLIVAN
MELVIN P. OLSON
VIRGINIA FRONTIERO MCKINNON
LINDA NILES NX
