On Thursday, February 16, local author and poet Jerome Schorr will be on hand at the Mark & Emily Turner Memorial Library beginning at 6:00 p.m. to discuss his book of poetry, Reflecting.

Jerome Schorr

Schorr was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, holds a degree in Business Administration, and is retired from the Air Force.  He currently resides in northern Maine.

The author’s website (www.jeromeschorr.com/author) states, “The book uses poetry in its freest form. It not only evokes emotions but provokes readers’ thoughts, prompting them to ponder the age-old questions about life, existence and beyond.  The reader will come away reflecting on their own experiences as the writer takes them on a journey through lives we might not otherwise experience.”

His poems cover a wide range of topics from love and family to more philosophical ideas.  Copies of his book will be available for purchase.

The Mark & Emily Turner Memorial Library, located at 39 Second Street in Presque Isle, was founded in 1908 with a mission of providing quality materials and services in a comfortable and open environment.  For more information on this event, the library or its programs and services, please call 764-2571 or visit the website at www.pimainelibrary.org.
