Speaker: Author, Poet, and Artist Nancy Arbuthnot

An artist, poet, and memoir-writer, Nancy has published several books, including Wild Washington: Animal Sculpture A to Z;  An American Artist in WWII: Jason Schoener at Eniwetok Atoll; and her latest, Postcards from the Border: Poems and Watercolor Meditations. She is retired from the U.S. Naval Academy, where she taught literature and writing for almost thirty years.
