Introducing Sybil Reisch

JOE: Good afternoon Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good afternoon Joe. I was wondering whether I would hear from you this weekend.
JOE: It’s been a busy week and I couldn’t stand to spend any more of my time indoors and at the computer than absolutely necessary.
CALLIOPE: Tell my about your program last Tuesday.
JOE: You mean A Conversations with Sybil Reisch.
CALLIOPE: Indeed.
JOE: It was an intimate gathering in which Sybil read from her book, Journey with Jeff, discussed their journey as a family including the challenges and joys of raising Jeff and took questions from a small but very moved audience.
CALLIOPE: Sounds like it went well.
JOE: I believe so. Sometimes it seems success lies in large numbers. However having the group small enough so that its members felt comfortable to share their concerns made it worthwhile.
CALLIOPE: Congratulations to you and Sybil.
JOE: Thanks, I’ll tell you more about my next project on Monday.

Journey with Jeff

I have now completed two months of my service through AmeriCorps. Instead of concentrating on my writing I have moved to the background of the arts community. At GO ART! in Batavia, NY, I have been working to publicize arts events in the Genesee and Orleans County communities. I am also developing a program for Arts Awareness month in March. My project is to host and introduce Sybil Reisch, author of Journey with Jeff: Inspiration for Caretakers of People with Special Needs. I have known Sybil for a number of years and am happy to bring her to Batavia to talk on March 30 at GO ART!. I plan to invite family  caretakers in the area through ARC, Genesee County Mental Health Center and the Senior Center as well as through local media. I have already gained a respect for what goes into presenting an arts program.
