I'm Patricia Konarski, and I currently live in Tucson, AZ; I have been living in Tucson for quite some time—I have found it to be a great retirement community. (I'd like to say I'm related to famous poet Feliks Konarski, educational reformer Stanislaw Konarski, and even historic politician Szymon Konarski, but, unfortunately, I'm not—at least I am not aware that I am related at this point. Yes, if you are wondering, I do have an interest in genealogy.) While I enjoy traveling, and find other cities interesting, I can never imagine leaving Tucson because it's such a great city. However, admittedly, Tucson has not fared too well in cultivating its own intense following of book lovers; I have tried to address that with my founding of the Tucson Book Social club--more on that later.
Before I indulge in anything further, please let me express my gratitude for being able to join such an online community with members who have a mutual interest.
With that said, I have to say that I just love books, both as a (retired) professional and on a personal level. At the risk of sounding cliche, books are passports to adventures of an infinite abundance. On this social media page and others, I will offer some of my opinions in the field of literature; I tend to rise early and find myself as a night owl at times, so the times of my postings will vary.
When I'm not completely immersed in a great book that I'm reading out of pleasure, I am usually reading other literary works as a freelance editor; I am the owner of Patricia Konarski Literary Services of Tucson. I also act as a bookkeeper and book collector.
Here is my university education background in a nutshell: I got my undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley (Go Golden Bears!) in 1962, and focused on literary works. I intend on going to the University of Arizona in Tucson to obtain my master's degree in English, with an emphasis in literature. The University of Arizona offers an excellent master's degree program. (Of course, the UA also has a great basketball team--go UA!)
If you have an interest in books, and live in Tucson, AZ, I encourage you to join my fellow friends and me at our monthly book socials; it is usually held in the immediate area of the University of Arizona campus; just contact me for details! (My email is Patricia.Konarski@outlook.com.)
Thanks for reading my introduction.
