T. Namaya reads 'Celebrate Life: Viva la Vida'

Date & Time: 
Sep 22 2017 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Local author T. Namaya reads from his new book Celebrate Life: Vida la Vida at 6pm on Friday, Sept, 22.

“This is a collection of stories and poems, some will make you laugh like 'Slugs as Great Lovers' and 'Sophia Loren at the Ice Cream Store', but others are about love, relationships, and surviving family --  ultimately it is about finding the joy even in the wonderful absurdity of life

Some of the poems and stories make you giggle, others make you feel regret, but they all make you think, and they have a common thread of prodding the reader to take the time to notice the simple things — told with subtle humor and vivid imagery." ~ Cicely Eastman, Brattleboro Reformer
