O'Neill Student Author Featured at Highland Falls Library
On April 9, O'Neill Senior and published author, Miriam Rice, shared a reading from her book of poetry titled "The Tide". Miriam's book is a compilations of poems she has written over the past four years. Miriam read several of her poems to the audience of about 30 people.
She also did a reading and talk to local students at the Highland Falls Intermediate School. The talk was followed up by inspirational writing exercises. Many were moved by both her poetry and her advice, including one fourth grade girl who approached her after the assembly and told Miriam that she too wanted to be a writer one day. Miriam plans to attend Brown University in the fall where she will hopefully continue her writing career.
