A Love Supreme: The Love Letters of Joe Bruno and Patsy Poitras

Romance will fill the air at the Stonington Public Library on Valentine’s Day as we present “A Love Supreme: The Love Letters of Joe Bruno and Patsy Poitras.” 
Written during a 10-month span, Joe and Patsy’s letters to each other reveal a love built on mutual respect, shared faith, and a deep affection for the island they called home. On reading the letters at Patsy’s memorial service, Joe discovered their powerful effect as they spurred others in his family to exchange letters. The letters continue to be a source of comfort 11 years after Patsy’s death. 
Come hear what true love sounds like on Wednesday, Feb. 14, from 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the library, 64 Main St., Stonington. 
For more information, please call the Stonington Public Library at 367-5926, or email us at librarian@stoningtonlibrary.org, or visit us on Facebook.
