Winter Twilight
"On a clear winter’s evening/ The crescent moon And the round squirrels’ nest/ In the bare oak/ Are equal planets. "

- Anne Porter


Now we are truly into the holiday season and looking forward to our December 7 Holiday Luncheon at the Greenwich Field Club. (Details appear on our Calendar.) Looking back on November 7, I am pleased to say we had a fine turnout for Literary and publishing agent Beth Davey’s talk. There were 22 appreciative GPW members in attendance.

After taking up Bonnie Levison’s email about the Story Barn, three GPW members presented their stories (about enduring love, matchmaking, and attempts at popularity gone awry) at the event on November 17 at the Greenwich Historical Society. This year’s theme, OY VEY!, was in honor of the Society’s exhibition on Jewish culture in Greenwich.

And there’s more fun ahead. Be sure to take a peek at the latest news, also in our Calendar, about the January Robert Burns dinner. Here’s the link to the website and invitation:

Until then, have a glorious holiday season. Marcia and I hope to see you on the 7th!  

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a very happy 2018 to all.
