A Free Talk: What is Love? Come and enjoy a free and inspiring community talk presented by relationship and couples counselor Terri DiMatteo on April 24 from 7pm-8pm at Open Door Therapy at 111 Quimby Street in Westfield. The talk will discuss what has puzzled mystics, philosophers and poets since the beginning of time – love. What’s different today is that science has tackled this age-old question.
