Local Peaks Island author and adult ed teacher bares the bones of her experience in an Lower East Side Soup kitchen during the sixties. Get ready for some history lessons and meet incredible people as though you are right there! More to come. Brilliant writer and incredible interesting person with quite a life's story to share.
