Our members have extraordinary life stories to tell. We get to know one another best by listening to and understanding how a person’s life experiences help to define the paths they have chosen and the values and commitments they most cherish. In this conversation, we have the good fortune to meet two accomplished artists, Carol and Elizabeth, who will speak together about how their backgrounds formed and influenced their work, their respective journeys to live in Groton, the inspiration for their artistic endeavors, and their enduring friendship. See their Bios below. We will invite you to join in with your questions and comments. Limit of 25 participants.
