Tonight! Author Kathy Leo and Hallowell Read at Putney Library, with Special Performance

Join Kathy Leo on Thursday, April 26th at 7pm at the Putney Library as she and other members of Hallowell, the Brattleboro Area Hospice choir, read from her new book, On the Breath of Song: The Practice of Bedside Singing for the Dying. The group will also sing from their repertoire, share stories, and answer questions. Kathy hopes that this gathering and other planned area readings will “inspire some interesting community conversation and sharing—another way for Hallowell to ‘hold sacred space’ in this time of so much uncertainty.”
On the Breath of Song “offers guidance and insight … through the telling of true stories” that Kathy gleaned from “over a decade of experience in song and spirit.” Most of the stories are ones that she tells, but she also expertly weaves in the voices of families who were recipients of Hallowell’s music and those of other Hallowell singers as well.
Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main St in Putney, VT. This event is free and open to the public.
