On Saturday, January 6 at 4 p.m., the Scoville Memorial Library will present its Armchair Traveller Series: Ghana and Me presented by Juliet Moore. My visits to a small fishing village on the coast of West Africa and how the courage and the beauty of the people changed me forever, viewed through slides, video clips, and narrative
"There was a hole in me - a place that needed to be filled - I had no idea with what. I was so open, and so longing to have a deeper level to my life....a greater awareness, a more profound perspective. That was when I reconnected with John, Libby, and Peter Moritz and learned what they had been doing since the day we sat in a funeral with three tiny white coffins in front of us. I went to Ghana and nothing has been the same since."
