CANCELLED: Words Galore with Author Val Walker 1:30 -2:30 P.M.

Join author Val Walker for a fun and lively hour of wordplay and brain twisters—a logophile’s paradise. We’ll learn new words as well as explore the history of old words and delve into the origins of words. We’ll enjoy limericks, riddles, famous quotes, puns, and fascinating trivia about trendy words. We’ll play guessing games with the dictionary and words-within-words games. Inspired by Shakespeare, Ogden Nash, or Edward Lear, we challenge our wits and might end up with a few laughs.

Val holds a Master of Science in rehabilitation counseling from Virginia Commonwealth University. She has organized and led support groups, outreach initiatives, and training programs for twenty-five years dedicated to people living with serious illnesses and disabilities. She now reaches out to seniors at local senior centers with her highly interactive wordplay games and brain twisters called “Words Galore,” sparking conversation and keeping our minds sharp.

This program is in-person at the Scandinavian Living Center in the President’s Dining Room. To register please email Amy, at or call the office, at 617-795-2560.
