GREENWICH PEN WOMEN CALENDAR
Date to be announced -- In October for a GPW Zoom Poetry Reading from Women’s Voices of the 21st Century, a book of poetry published in 2013 by our own GPW branch. Poets will be invited to sign up to read their own work. This will be recorded and archived by the GPW and free copies of the book will be offered to all GPA members who request them from former GPW President Deb Weir, who spearheaded the project, and who has graciously taken back the remaining PW poetry books to her home. Members may also request copies to donate to institutions.
Monday October 19th, from 1 – 2:15 PM, our Music members - Ida Angland, Julie Dolphin, Joyce DiCamillo, Claudia Dumschat, and Adrienne Reedy - will present their individual viewpoints on "Music: The New Normal - Where Are We Now and Where Are We Going?" The music industry has been decimated by the pandemic, since live programs, concerts, and teaching music and performing music ensemble are at the core of careers in music. This will be a virtual presentation/discussion. You will receive a Zoom invitation to this event.
Greenwich Pen Women Steps Up for Greenwich Reads Together

The good news is that Greenwich Pen Women member Adrienne Reedy will lead a virtual book discussion on Just Mercy on Monday, October 26, at 7pm.
