Inspiring Author Shares Story of Courage




Filomena Tripp, author of Invisible Courage, will be speaking from 6 to 8 p.m., February 6, at the Lakeville Public Library, about her story of courage, resilience, persistence, faith and a lesson in loving one’s self first.

Tripp was born in 1955 with three underdeveloped limbs. From the beginning she was not expected to live long. Doctors thought she shouldn’t, but now at age 62, she is a role model. Tripp beat the odds. At first she wanted to prove to people she mattered. After hitting rock bottom in her 30s, she realized she needed to believe she mattered. She is now happily married, has a career, drives her own vehicle and works closely with people with disabilities. This book is for anyone looking for enrichment, hope, insight and inspiration.

Location: 4 Precinct St., Lakeville. Invisible Courage can be purchased on Amazon or via her blog FilomenaTripp.blogspot.com.
