The poetry professor presents her third collection, a musing on art, travel, nature's gains and losses, the joy and discord of family, aging without bitterness, and the juxtaposition of the body's frailty against the resiliency of spirit.
Six of Merrin's poetry students from the Piper Writing Studio also read a selection from their own works.
