Wellesley resident Cynthia Wight Rossano is a writer and editor who for nearly thirty years was sole editor to the late Reverend Peter J. Gomes, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Minister in The Memorial Church, Harvard University.
Together, Gomes and Rossano published numerous articles, papers and books, including the New York Times and national best-sellers, The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart, and The Good Life: Truths That Last in Times of Need.
Next Thursday, December 6th at 7:00 P.M., Rossano will read excerpts from Durable Values: Selected Writings of Peter J. Gomes, and take questions. As Rossano explains in the introduction, Gomes had planned to write a memoir of his life in the ministry and at Harvard before he died. This collection of writings is Rossano's best guess at what that memoir might have been.
Free and open to the public, sponsored by the Friends of the Wellesley Free Libraries. Copies of Durable Values will be available for sale and signing.
