The book Syria-Remember Me, by local author/photographer Deborah Harte Felmeth, will be launched with a celebration at the Vergennes Opera House on November 15th from 3-5 pm. Published by Bard Owl, an imprint of Windridge Books of Shelburne VT, Syria-Remember Me is a limited edition hardcover Photo Essay of wide scope and beautiful accomplishment.
Deborah Harte Felmeth, a resident for 30 years on Green St. in Waltham, found her way to Damascus, Syria in 1991 as a music teacher and fell in love with Syria's hills, deserts, cities, villages and above, all its people and their culture. She never really left.
Since 1996 and up until the recent upheavals,heartbreaks and deep tragedies, she and her husband divided their time equally between a beloved apartment above Straight St. in the Old City of Damascus and their equally well-loved home in the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Deborah Felmeth works professionally as a piano and voice teacher, yoga instructor and healer. She is a musician, weaver, gardener, singer, and avid photographer.
This event is free and open to the public.
