Open House Book Launch October 18, 2020

Cobblestone Springs, a nondenominational retreat center near Dundee, is hosting an open house Sunday October 18, 2020, from 1 to 4 p.m. We’re excited to announce the publication of founder Jan Carr’s first book, Of Elemental Spirits: The Poetry of Jan Carr.  This event will feature readings by the author, book signing, and refreshments. 

This graceful volume includes 29 poems by Ms. Carr, capturing her careful observations and insights into the natural world around her.  She has been writing poetry for many years, but this is the first time a collection has been available to the public. A limited edition was published;
copies will be available while they last for $15 each. Proceeds benefit programming at Cobblestone Springs. 

Masks are required for all in-person programs! If weather permits, we may hold most of the event outdoors. Guests may be welcomed inside in small groups, but may explore and enjoy our beautiful grounds while waiting. Please also check the website (CobblestoneSprings.org)
or call 607.243.8212 a day or two ahead to confirm any planned in-person activity in the event of changes in state guidelines before this event. 

Jan lives near Himrod NY and works as an all-purpose remodeling contractor and gardener/landscaper. As a child raised on a farm and former co-owner of a blueberry farm here, she has always had a deep connection to the spirit of the land.
