Poets Live Forever Seminar with Val Walker

Wednesday, October 20, 2021


Open to out-of-town seniors for $20 for series

In this series at the Senior Center, Val Walker will present lively readings and life histories of our most beloved poets, starting with Mary Oliver. Val sparks conversation and reflection on what inspired their brilliant creations, the challenges they face, their passions and callings. Each class is devoted to one particular poet as we learn to understand the world and vision of that individual experience. October 20th: Mary Oliver; October 27th: Edgar Allan Poe; November 3rd: Emily Dickinson; November 10th: Robert Frost. Contact the COA to register for this class: 978-929-6652 or seniorcenter@actonma.gov. Val Walker, MS, is an author, educator and consultant. She was a counselor for 20 years, is a contributing blogger for Psychology Today, and author of The Art of Comforting and 400 Friends and No One to Call
