This special summer session allows participants to respond through writing to the current events of the pandemic and the racial justice movement flourishing in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and other topics central in their lives.

Maureen McNeil, author, artist, educator, and social activist, has created writing programs for NYC public school students, US prisoners, seniors, veterans, and families of 9/11 victims. She believes that everyone’s story is needed to help solve the problems of the world. Maureen is also the author of Dear Red: The Lost Diary of Marilyn Monroe and Red Hook Stories.

This program is made possible, in part, with support from the Friends of the Hudson Area Library.
