Peabody's seniors are in for a treat!
Poet, naturalist, artist and teacher Maria Mello will read from her new collection of poems, Bird Calls, at the Torigian Community Life Center, 79 Central St., Peabody, on Dec. 10 from 9:30-11 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Insightful and delightful, Mello's poetry benefits from her careful observation during time spent outdoors. The collection is arranged in sections named for different kids of birds, with corresponding themes of longing, discovery, loss, communion and wisdom.
Maria's voice is so mellow! Llisteners can hear her read in a podcast on her author page at Four Square Press (foursquarepress.com). Her work has been published in various small presses, and is often read aloud to enthusiastic audiences.
Stay tuned to Peabody TV this week as Maria is expected to appear on camera!
