Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
I just moved to Massachusetts recently and I'm enjoying getting to know the Pioneer Valley and its people. My work is writing books for children, many of which can be found on the shelves of the Jones Library. (The books, not the children!) I love hiking, biking, paddling – anything that gets me outside in this beautiful area. I'm also a fluent speaker of Esperanto, an international language that dates back to 1887 and is currently spoken by perhaps half a million enthusiasts around the globe. I've traveled to lots of interesting places, including Nicaragua, Thailand, Serbia, Qatar, and Democratic Republic of Congo. Since the pandemic I haven't gone very far, but thanks to the ESL program, the world is now coming to me!
