Margaret Montet’s essays are narratives of place combined with memoir, research, and culture. Much of her work focuses on ‘classical’ music and opera as music is her first love. She’s a college librarian working on her MFA in Creative Writing (Creative Nonfiction) from Cedar Crest College. She teaches wildly original Music History courses to older adults, Effective Speaking to college students and is in-demand as a speaker on Music topics in the Central Jersey/Southeastern Pennsylvania region. Her work has been published in Library Journal, Solo Travel Network, Mature Years, America in WWII, Edible Jersey, and other fine periodicals.
