An Evening with Roberta Bondi: "Wild Things: Poems of Grief and Love, Loss and Gratitude"
Charis Books and More, Thursday, September 4 at 7:30pm
"Grief is such a messy thing," Roberta Bondi writes in the introduction to Wild Things. "It fills us with so many ideas and images, memories and fantasies, celebration and bitter regret all at once--all superimposed upon one another. No wonder it wears us out." In this book of poetry and reflections on her mother's death, Bondi acknowledges her grief in the presence of God over the span of a few months. She expresses many conflicting feelings: love, pain, anger, guilt, emptiness, confusion, exhaustion, relief that her mother was no longer suffering. As she celebrates her mother's life and wrestles with her own sense of loss and longing, she ponders the mystery of life, death, and God's presence everyday all around us in nature as well as in relationships. Even though we may feel isolated in our grief, we do not grieve alone, Bondi reminds us. In this firsthand account of her grief, Bondi offers a gift to all who are grieving - comfort and help with accepting the forward and backward movements of grief, loss, and, eventually, gratitude. In addition to helping those who grieve, Wild Things will also be a valuable resource for those seeking to aid and comfort the grieving: pastors, counselors, chaplains, hospice workers, and family and friends of those dealing with loss.

Roberta Bondi is Professor Emerita at Candler School of Theology, Emory University. She will be recognized for several "firsts" at Candler School of Theology in fall 2014, including that she was the first woman who attained tenured faculty status.

This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Event. The Suggested Donation is $5.

Wendy Hamand Venet, A Changing Wind: Commerce and Conflict in Civil War Atlanta
Tall Tales Book Shop, Inc., Saturday, September 6 at 2pm
Local author Wendy Hamand Venet will be here signing her new book A Changing Wind: Commerce and Conflict in Civil War Atlanta.

"In 1845, Atlanta was the last stop at the end of a railroad line, the home of just twelve families and three general stores. By the 1860s, it was a thriving Confederate city, second only to Richmond in importance. A Changing Wind is the first history to explore the experiences of Atlanta's civilians during the young city's rapid growth, the devastation of the Civil War, and the Reconstruction era when Atlanta emerged as a "New South" city. A Changing Wind vividly brings to life the stories of Atlanta's diverse citizens--white and black, free and enslaved, well-to-do and everyday people. A rich and compelling account of residents' changing loyalties to the Union and the Confederacy, the book highlights the unequal economic and social impacts of the war, General Sherman's siege, and the stunning rebirth of the city in postwar years. The final chapter of the book focuses on Atlanta's historical memory of the Civil War and how racial divisions have led to separate commemorations of the war's meaning" (jasbro)… (more)

Mammary Lane: an evening of art and healing
Charis Books and More, Thursday, September 11 at 7:30pm
When the dark nasty showed up on her annual mammogram, Rosemary Griggs put her long career as a ceramic sculptor on hold as she faced a myriad of life-affirming and life-altering treatments. Though her vibrant spirit felt sapped, she managed to find the juice to sketch almost every day. Mammary Lane is a collection ofsketches, prose and poems that illustrate Rosemary's journey through the diagnosis, treatment and cure of breast cancer. Often humorous, sometimes wrenching and ultimately uplifting, Mammary Lane is both a memoir and a journal of survival. It is a love story featuring drawings of the many caregivers, both two- and four-legged, that helped her through the emotional and physical upheavals of breast cancer treatment. It illustrates her evolving decisions on breast reconstruction and eventual deconstruction. Finally, it is a tale of seeking and finding comfort in a changed body. This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Event. The Suggested Donation is $5 and all are welcome to attend.
