Barbara Viniar

Manuscript Seminar
with Reyna Grande

I spent 40 years of my life as a community college educator and advocate, almost half of those as the president of two small, rural colleges. When I retired to the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts, a place of extraordinary natural beauty and world class music, theater and museums, I imagined myself enjoying those resources, volunteering with local non-profits that help women and girls, coaching emerging leaders and writing a blog that started out as leadership lessons and evolved into “just because.” No one is more surprised than I am to find myself immersed in writing an historical novel loosely based on my grandmother, which I will be working on at UTV. I think that telling her story is really a way to tell my own.
