Hub on Canal in New Smyrna to host book signing
May Jane Barenbaum will celebrate the publication of her well-received collection, "Seasons of My Life," with a book launch on Saturday, Oct. 6, at The Hub on Canal Street, New Smyrna Beach.
The author will sign copies from 4 until 8 p.m. The public is invited to the event, which is part of the monthly gallery walk.
"Seasons of My Life" reflects a lifetime of the author's creative impressions, flowering into final form in the autumn of her life. This poignant collection of poetry and short memoirs tells the story of Ms. Barenbaum's own life while lifting the curtain on many intricacies of 20th century America, including the migration of Southerners to the industrial North and then back again. Anyone who has experienced life from the post World War II period to the present will find familiar memories in this collection.
For more information, call (386) 690-9295.
