Meet Your (Former) Neighbor: Author Hazel Dawkins

Meet Your (Former) Neighbor: Author Hazel Dawkins

Wednesday, June 2, 2021, 10:00 am until 11:00 am

The Greenfield Public Library welcomes author Hazel Dawkins for a special edition of “Meet Your Neighbor”. A former resident of Greenfield, Hazel will be (virtually) discussing her new memoir Hazy Memory, on Wednesday, June 2 at 10 am.

IN A STORIED, WELL-LIVED LIFE, HAZEL DAWKINS has worn many hats: assistant to the editor at London’s Evening Standard, an aide to Bournemouth East’s MP at the House of Commons, editor of dozens of others’ articles and books - and author of several of her own. Moving from WWII’s air raids on Britain’s Bournemouth to London, Paris, New York and back to her hometown, Hazel’s story is a life lesson for our times. It’s an epic tale of family, friends, love, adventure - and the search for meaning, knowledge and social justice in an ever-changing yet often too-familiar world.

HAZEL DAWKINS is the author of four mysteries (one co-authored with Dennis Berry) that feature Dr. Yoko Kamimura. Renowned author and historian Alex McKinstry describes Hazel’s new memoir, Hazy Memory, as “...a consistently readable book. I loved the surprises lurking in each chapter and was impressed by the extensive geographic and emotional territories covered.”

Hazel’s latest book, Hazy Memory, is her long-awaited memoir.
