Join us Sunday, November 11 at 2 pm for Smart Ass: How a Donkey Challenged Me to Accept His True Nature & Rediscover My Own. Winslow is an award-winning local author of travel memoirs: Over My Head: Journeys in Leaky Boats from the Strait of Magellan to Cape Horn and Beyond and The Cusp of Dreadfulness.
How do you meet a mid-life crisis? Sports car, Italian villa, inappropriate love interest? Margaret Winslow, an overworked college professor in New York City, answered a for-sale ad for a "Large White Saddle Donkey" in the American Donkey and Mule Society's magazine, The Brayer.
Hilarity ensues, alongside life-threatening injuries and spirit-enriching insight. Through training traumas, expert-baffling antics, and humiliating races, she comes to understand of Caleb's true, undeniable gifts: a willingness to be true to himself no matter the circumstances, to "speak truth to power," to trust, and to forgive. As she and Caleb learn to thrive, you'll learn the importance of being true to your own pure and powerful self.
