Join instructor Kathryn Abajian to experience a step back in centuries and a step forward in awareness as she returns for a fifth year to the medieval hill town of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, an enchanting and unspoiled gem located in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Enjoy daily instruction, a private room, regional Abruzzese cuisine, local wines and cultural excursions with ItalyinOtherWords Memoir Writing and Cultural Retreat, June 15—21, 2014.
