BOOK LAUNCH with Carol Hoffman
July 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Write On partners with Sand Beach Press to celebrate the publication of Carol Hoffman’s memoir
Fish Creek resident Carol Hoffman will read excerpts from her soon-to be-released book Twelve Years Overseas: An Educator’s Journey Across the Globe.
As she neared the age of retirement from a long teaching career in Appleton, Hoffman took the unusual step of accepting employment for twelve years in international schools. Her book describes life as teacher and administrator in five different countries, where she quickly learned to adapt to and appreciate each new culture. She tells personal anecdotes- some funny and some unnerving- of her unusual experiences. With vivid details of food, of transport systems, of child-rearing and ruins and wineries, Hoffman gives readers a glimpse into life in each culture. Her tone is light, easy to read, and infused with constant humor.
The reading is appropriate for all ages. After the reading, a light reception will follow.
The book can be purchased for $16 at the event, and Hoffman will be available to sign books.
