WATERVILLE — Poet, teacher and past Hospice volunteer Sarah Carlson will be the featured speaker at 7 p.m. Monday, May 21, at Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area, 304 Upper Main St.

Carlson will discuss how writing poetry and taking photographs has become an integral part of her healing after the sudden death of her husband, Barry, in 2002. She uses metaphorical connections from her experiences in the natural world — hiking, biking, swimming, paddling, skiing — to give the reader glimpses of grace and tidbits of tenderness with her combinations of poetry and photos. She published 175 of these pairings in her book “The Radiance of Change” this past winter.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and Carlson will be prepared to sign copies.
