  • Dave Morrison & Maureen Egan: Responding to Adversity Through Art

    Come hear two of our favorite local poets as they discuss how writing helped them through tough times.

    Rockport resident Maureen Egan, author of The Light From Here: A Breast Cancer Story will share how making art—both writing and painting— supported her through a series of challenges, culminating in a breast cancer diagnosis in 2012. With the backdrop of her colorful art, her presentation unfolds as a journey of the heart, a portrayal of marriage, self-reflection, and adversity.

    When poet Dave Morrison was diagnosed with tonsillar cancer he reacted the only way he knew how; by writing poems which he published in the book Cancer Poems. “In these honest and courageous poems (Cancer Poems), Morrison shares his turbulent journey through the landscape of cancer, its painful paths and nearly unclimbable hills, its tremendous skies with bright stars of gratitude.” – Ellen Taylor, author of Floating .
