~~The senior members of the “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” are all residents of The Watermark at 3030 Park in Bridgeport. The group began in December 2013 when several former journalists living at the Watermark found each other. Seeking a teacher/mentor for a writers’ workshop, they contacted Dr. Regina Krummel, a retired professor who had taught creative writing at Queens College, City University of New York. The group of women, all with professional writing backgrounds and publishing credits, are: Gloria Sugarman, Daphne Opdyke, Carol Gursky, Liz Barzda and Irene Backalenick. For the Library program the women will share their original poetry, essays and short stories.  Free and open to the public!
