Join Diane Nassif at the Putney Library on Thursday, July 19 at 7 PM for a presentation on her journey to a small mountain village in El Salvador, made early in 2018, with a delegation of “sister-city” visitors, some of whom have been visiting this village twice a year for 25 years. She hopes to encourage attendees to consider the meaning of community and borders in today’s world, and to shed some light on the real impact to Salvadorans of the current immigration policies of the US. Coffee from the mountaintop, crafts made by the women’s sewing collective, and artwork by El Salvador’s national artist, Fernando LLort, will be on display to help make the journey come alive.
Diane lives in Petersham, Mass and is a retired software architect who is now re-discovering her early roots, from when she trained as a sociologist. She is involved with a few organizations in the North Quabbin area of Massachusetts including North Quabbin Energy, the Garlic and Arts Festival, and Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust.
Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main St in Putney, VT. This event is free and open to the public.
