Paly ~ Class of '61






A new Menu Item, "Paly Authors" has been added to the Paly Alumni site.  


Sarah mentioned awhile back that she was writing this book.  It will be released in September, 2019.  Happened to see this on Amazon.com


 In her journal Pomegranate Years, Sarah Kafatou relates her thoughts and activities during the three years from 2014 to 2017 Fotis Kafatos, her husband of over four decades entered the nearby long-term care facility until the time of his death.

Sarah, an American poet and painter, and Fotis, an internationally distinguished biologist, chose to settle in Crete, where he was born and grew up after he had become severely affected by Alzheimer's.

The implicit question the writer of the journal asks is: How shall I live well, even as my beloved husband is dying? Her answer includes thoughtfully managing Fotis’s care. It also entails abiding engagement with painting, hiking, playing the piano, enjoying visits with her adult children and their families, and partaking of the companionship of friends. All these endow her life and writing with resilience and gusto. Reading Pomegranate Years, you’ll engage with a writer who invites engagement.



2019 is going to be a GREAT YEAR!!!

"The high school experience is the mother lode of group memories. It's the imprint and paradigm because that's where our roots are; it was the site of our coming of age and where adult life started, where we found our first role models and maybe our first love."  Dick Henning
