  • Closing reception at Iona show was a lot of fun
    During the November 18 closing reception at the Iona Senior Wellness Center, the book authors held everyone rapt as they read their books and also explained how and why they created the books.

I had him in mind when I took the picture, and was hoping he’d ... Read More
