Poet Chagnon to promote new book at Tatnuck Bookseller

Never Touched A PenWestborough – Poet Laura Chagnon will be promoting her new book, “Never Touched a Pen” at Tatnuck Bookseller Sunday, May 4 from 1-3 p.m.

In 1989, on her 26th birthday, Chagnon was the victim of a senseless assault in Boston. She was left for dead in front of New England Medical Center where the assailant threw her out of his car. She was brought inside and was in a coma for five weeks, finally awakening as a quadriplegic, legally blind, with a head injury. Four years in rehab facilities followed.

She now crafts poems with her caregivers from early morning until she goes to bed at night. Chagnon has been on a 25-year mission to get a book of her poems nationally published. Last year, working with Todd Civin from Mascot Books, her dream came true.

Tatnuck Bookseller is located at the Westborough Shopping Center, Route 9 and Lyman Street.
