March 22, 2 pm, Helene Houston, MS APRN, will give a talk on her book: The Other Couch: Discovering Women’s Wisdom in Therapy. Written with Patricia Martin through the eyes of two wise and experienced therapists, the book explores the lives of 36 spirited women who struggle and overcome their challenges with courage, resilience, and commitment. Patricia Martin and Helene Houston understand that each of us has an intense craving to be understood by others. These stories are meant to inspire because they bring new life, breath, and spirit into the world. The Other Couch was written as a tribute, and a gift, to women everywhere.
April 7, 2 pm, Tony Judge from the South Hadley Redevelopment Authority will speak on the Community Preservation Act (CPA). CPA is designed to be a smart growth tool that helps communities preserve open space and historic sites, create affordable housing, and develop outdoor recreational facilities. The goal is also to strengthen the state and local economies by expanding housing opportunities and construction jobs for the Commonwealth's workforce, and by supporting the tourism industry through preservation of the Commonwealth’s historic and natural resources. On April 12, South Hadley voters will decide on adopting a 1.5% CPA surcharge for their community.
Both events are free and open to the public and will be held in the Loomis Village Auditorium, 20 Bayon Drive, South Hadley.
