    Book Release: Creating a New Civility by Joy Marsella

    This timely book discusses how we, as a culture, can move away from negativity and create civility at both the personal and community levels.

Readers will find nature writing, meditations, literary journalism, and memoir—a range of approaches for covering a range of miles and years since a childhood spent growing up in Hirt’s Greenhouse in Strongsville, Ohio, which was the subject of her first book.
