Lenore Hirsch

I am a retired educator in Napa who writes features for the Napa Valley Register, poetry, and stories. My books include my dog’s memoir; My Leash on Life, Foxy’s View of the World from a Foot Off the Ground; a poetry collection, Leavings; and Laugh and Live, Advice for Aging Boomers, essays about aging with humor. My websites include lenorehirsch.com, laughing-oak.com, and myleashonlife.me.

Need a humorous speaker for your event? I’d love to read from my book about aging. I’m happy to visit book clubs and talk about the joys and agonies of the writing life. Or if you have a great personal story to share, I’d be happy to talk to you, pitch it to the Register, and write it.

Where are you willing to work?

Willing to work in...: American Canyon, Angwin, Calistoga, Deer Park, Napa, Oakville, Rutherford, Saint Helena, Yountville
