Schetky shares Arctic Adventures
Camden — Author and retired psychiatrist Diane Schetky will offer a poet’s perspective on the Arctic in a talk titled Poetic Adventures of Heart and Soul Wednesday, Oct. 17 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Anderson Inn at Quarry Hill, 30 Community Drive. The event is planned as part of Quarry Hill’s Adventures in Living Well series for adults age 55-plus.
Inspired by her travels to the North Pole and other frozen reaches of the earth, Schetky’s latest work combines imagery, humor and insight with concern for the planet’s endangered natural environments. Her presentation will juxtapose photographs taken during her journeys with readings from her new book, “Dancing Bear and Other New Poems” (Xlibris, 2012). Copies of “Dancing Bear” will be available for purchase and signing.
Schetky retired from her career as a psychiatrist in 2007. In 2009, she published her first poetry collection, “Poems on Loss, Hope and Healing,” which drew on her experience as a hospice volunteer. A former Rockport resident, she now lives in Topsham.
Admission to all Adventures in Living Well programs is free, but registration is required; to sign up, call Quarry Hill at 230-6114. For information about Adventures programs planned for October through December, call 230-6114 or visit quarryhill.org/news-and-events.
