Finding Silvia: My Estonian Neighbor
November 19, 2019
Rooted with the plants in an elderly woman's garden comes a story of determination and tenacity in the face of heartbreaking losses. Join Angela Ogle on Tuesday, November 19th at 7:00 PM for a presentation about her research into the life of Silvia Narma. Our search for Silvia begins in a Vermont village, slightly smaller than Central Park. But the map soon broadens in an exploration of her Estonian homeland and the devastation exacted by WWII. In searching, we discover the lost manuscripts of a beloved national poet and the personal narrative of a resourceful and courageous woman. Finding Silvia is a story about love and exile, war, and writing, but also about following one's curiosity and allowing your neighbor's experience to enrich your own.
