Recordando e Vivendo: Poemas das Nossas Vidas
Author: Portuguese Elders Poetry Group of the Immigrants’ Assistance Center, Inc.
It is a poetry book done by Portuguese Elders about old times, daily life, lessons learned along the way, wisdom and end of life issues.
This book was written by the Poetry Group of the Immigrants’ Assistance Center. This is a subgroup of the Elders Group called “Embracing Aging”. The goal of this project was to stimulate the intellectual capacities of the elders and to help them express emotions. It was also to express thoughts and feelings that had some meaning or significance in their lives and to improve their quality of life. All of these elders have a fourth grade education or less. They chose their own topics and what touched their souls.
