St. Francis College recently hosted the sixth annual Senior Citizen Reading of Poetry and Prose by members of Professor Mitch Levenberg’s Senior Citizen writing class.

The reading, “A Rainbow Bridge of Light: Voices from the Universe,” is an annual celebration of the voices and visions of the senior community and features a wide variety of work from novice and experienced writers. Levenberg, an author and English professor at St. Francis, also read some of his own work. 

The writing class is just one of a number of programs and events St. Francis College offers, free of charge, to all members of the senior citizen community. Other activities include swimming, tai chi, yoga, first-run movies and numerous lectures and panel discussions held and hosted by St. Francis College professors. 

The “For Seniors” program is funded under contract with the New York City Department for the Aging. City Councilmember Stephen Levin attended the event, as he has several times in the past, to show his support for the writers and enjoy their work.
