Your Assignment

Your assignment is to follow her act. On a beautiful spring day, share a poem you love with someone you’ve just met.


RozAnne Petito was in high school in Trenton, New Jersey, when she won an award from the American Theatre Association for three original plays performed at the Bucks County Playhouse in Pennsylvania. Opting not to go to college, she hitchhiked around America with a typewriter and a set of black-and-white waitress clothes, certain she could get a job anywhere. By 30, she was married and settling into motherhood. She is currently back in the food industry and surrounded by six grandchildren, whom she adores.
