    Lectures & Book Talks
    Every journey has a story. It might be a physical journey to a different place or a journey of personal discovery. Each venture into the unknown has the potential to open us up to new experiences, insights, and perceptions, which then emerge as a compelling narrative. Please join Sally Holzman and Ellen Kaufman who will share stories of journeys—old and new, personal and classic. We hope that you will have some “aha” moments along the way.
