On Thursday, March 17, the Friends of the Library will host a presentation featuring local author Gwen Suesse. The discussion will take place in the Polk County Public Library’s community room in Columbus at 6 p.m. A book signing will follow. The event is free and open to the public.

Suesse will discuss her book, “Womansong: Balance and Harmony in a Feminine Key.” Winner of two national contests for independently published books (2010): First place in Women’s Issues in the National Indie Excellence Awards and bronze medal winner in Women’s Issues in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, “Womansong” is a series of reflections about modern womanhood, discussing how a woman can find a measure of equilibrium while also filling the multiple roles of being daughter, friend, wife, lover, mother, worker as well as homemaker.

Suesse has a BA in music from Wagner College, and an MAT from Harvard University. She is a certified teacher, experienced choral conductor, seasoned speaker, presenter and workshop facilitator, as well as being human resources consultant. Suesse lives in Tryon, where she is active in the local arts community.
