“We were so delighted with Carolyn’s powerful drama and her personable style of teaching that Carefree [retirement community] women asked her to return and be our first Artist-in-Residence… Participating in the readings and listening to the performances were powerful experiences for the women of our community. Carolyn’s dramatic works, her teaching methods, and her passionate belief in women inspired many of us to look at our lives and come to see ourselves as heroines and Amazons. Her ability to clothe her meticulous research and knowledge of women’s and especially lesbian history in enthralling dramas helped many of us to realize our rich lesbian/feminist heritage… she’s personable, down-to-earth, and fun to be with. Her time with us was intense, fascinating, and a lot of fun. Who could ask for more?” —Dana G. Finnegan, PhD., Leader of Writers’ Workshop at Clubhouse for Resort on Carefree Boulevard, Ft. Myers.
