I just returned from Voices lecture series and heard Amy Dickinson of the "Ask Amy" column. She was a warm, humorous and sensitive speaker. A joy to listen to. Her stories about growing up in a small town in upstate NY are priceless. And it was moving to hear her talk about the women in her family that influenced her life and helped shape her values.
She wrote The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, A Daughter and the Town That Raised Them. I am looking forward to reading it.
It was great to laugh tonight. It was great to hear someone's humorous portrayal about the ups and downs of life.
