“Conversations” start at 7 p.m. Tuesdays in the Parish Hall
Mitchell, known locally as the City of Salisbury’s inaugural poet laureate, is a 2012 Pushcart Prize winner, one of poetry’s most highly regarded awards, and author of three books. She has spoken and written eloquently about her family’s journey through addiction and recovery.
Miller, professor emeritus at SU, won the 2006 University System of Maryland Board of Regents’ Award for Excellence in Teaching. He has studied Alcoholics Anonymous and was co-editor of Sobering Wisdom, the first book to examine the Twelve Step program through the lens of philosophers.
Strazza, a musician and worship leader at Christ Episcopal Church in Easton, has been called the “guardian angel” of countless numbers of recovering addicts in the Mid-Shore. He serves on its Opioid Task Force and works with the Gratitude House for men in Easton. “I try to live a life of service,” he said. “I’m sick of seeing people dying.”
St. Peter’s is located at 115 St. Peter’s St.
