Program to show how music heals
Certified music practitioner, performer, teacher and writer Robin Russell will be the presenter for the Lake Junaluska Book Review at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17, in the Susan Todd Lounge in the Harrell Center.
Russell is close to the publication of MUSICAL MORPHINE: Transforming Pain One Note at a Time, and her program will include reading, a little music (she plays 18 instruments and also sings), and an explanation of her music practitioner work and how she came to write her most recent book.
If the Haywood County Schools close due to inclement weather, this Book Review session will be canceled and, if possible, rescheduled.
