Making June 2017 even more special.

Many of us cannot wait for June’s arrival.  We anticipate.  Look forward. Make plans.  So, let’s get real. 

June marks the end of school, the start of summer, warm sunny days and romps along sandy beaches.  Wine tours and summer concerts.  Al fresco dining.  Graduation parties and weddings. 

June also means engaging literary events especially in the Central New York region.  With funding support from Poets & Writers through NYSCA, aaduna contributor and long standing esteemed poet and writer, Patricia Roth Schwartz will participate in readings, as well as conduct workshops to inspire and broaden our creative instincts.  If you live in the region or plan to visit, we encourage you to put the following events on your “to do” calendar:
