Joan Nelson Pierotti will give a reading from her book, Transforming a Life; A Memoir.

During the height of the Civil Rights Movement, her own psychological and spiritual journey expanded from being a naïve minister’s wife trying to keep hold of a faithless husband, to realizing that she’d given away the best part of who she once had been. She dared to find her way to becoming an extraordinary, truth-telling teacher, leading her students to discover their own extraordinary potential. Teaching and learning became an exciting journey for her as an independent, activist educator in DC’s public high schools.
