Thursday, April 9 ~ Linda O'Connell
Join us on Tuesday, April 9 at 7pm for a special poetry event with author Linda Recco O'Connell and her debut poetry collection, Writing My Way Home.
Linda Recco O'Connell grew up in the 1950’s in Needham, Massachusetts into a hardworking retail family business. She attended college in upstate NY and soon returned to join her father in his wine business. After her marriage, family life became her focus as she raised two boys. Motherhood was saddened by several miscarriages, and it was these painful experiences that inspired her to begin expressing herself through poetry.
Her poems have appeared in a number of journals, including Soul-lit, SheMom, A Year of Being Here, and Wellesley Weston Magazine. Her poem ”Reunion” was presented as the basis for a song, as part of a London musical.
O’Connell resides in Wellesley, Massachusetts with her husband, Mike. Writing My Way Home is Linda’s first book.
