Helen will be appearing in the last hour of KREX TV's Morning News
on Tuesday Morning. (5am-7am)

   Helen Sperber has found “life after retirement” exciting and rewarding. After retiring from her position as activity director at a nursing home, she participated in community theater, took lessons in yoga and dance, and learned to swim. She became a published poet and is a charter member of Western Colorado Writers Forum. The Blue Wildebeest, a senior coming-of-age novel, was her first book. Paper Days and Years, being introduced tonight, is her first book of poetry.

   The Blue Wildebeest follows Mattie and her friends, all past seventy and determined to continue living life to the fullest, as they set off to pursue their bucket lists on Cape Cod. Helen will read excerpts from this funny/sad/happy tale of wise and foolish women.

   Paper Days and Years
is Helen’s first book of poetry. From childhood to the end of life, from spiders to dead crows, and from love to bombings in Paris, she explores poetically the world around her as well as internal musings. These readings will both inspire and challenge you.
