Dave Barry
A Cappella Books, Friday, March 6 at 7pm
Dave Barry (Boogers Are My Beat, Dave Barry Does Japan, Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltway, Dave Barry In Cyberspace, Dave Barry Is From Mars and Venus, Dave Barry Is Not Making This Up, Dave Barry Is Not Taking This Sitting Down, Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys, Dave Barry's Greatest Hits, Dave Barry Slept Here, Dave Barry's Money Secrets, Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need, Dave Barry Talks Back, Dave Barry Turns Fifty, Dave Barry Turns Forty)

The New York Times has pronounced Dave Barry "the funniest man in America." But of course that could have been on a slow news day when there wasn't much else fit to print.True, his bestselling collections of columns are legendary, but it is his wholly original books, like this one, that reveal him as an American icon. Dave Barry Slept Here was his version of American history. Dave Barry Does Japan was a contribution to international peace and understanding from which Japan has not yet fully recovered. Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys is among the best-read volumes in rehab centers and prisons. And now, with his take on American politics and, especially, Washington, D.C., he takes his place with de Tocqueville and Larry King as a truly infamous explicator of and commentator on the process by which we find, fund, and... (fill in your own four-letter word here) our pols and public servants.Raised in a suburb of New York, educated in a suburb of Philadelphia, he lives now in a suburb of Miami. (Won't they let him into the cities? Read him on, for example, Miami, which played such a pivotal role in the last presidential election, and you'll understand why.)He is not, as he often puts it so poetically, making this up.

Lori Horvitz Presents The Girls of Usually
Charis Books and More, Friday, March 6 at 7:30pm
Lori Horvitz grew up ashamed of her Eastern European Jewish roots, confused about her sexuality, and idolizing the "shiksa in her living room," a blonde all-American girl whose photo came in a double frame and was displayed next to a family photo from a bar mitzvah. Unable to join the "happy blonde families," she becomes a "hippie chick" who travels the world in search of … something. The Girls of Usually chronicles each trip, each romance, each experiment in reinventing herself that draws her closer to discovering the secret door through which she can escape from deep-rooted patterns and accept her own cultural, ethnic, and sexual identity. Reading Lori Horvitz’s Girls of Usually feels like calling up an old friend and talking late into the night. Deeply intimate and wickedly funny, these are essays to be treasured. —Stephanie Elizondo Griest, author Around the Bloc: My Life in Moscow, Beijing, and Havana These smart, witty, and heartbreaking essays are pure magic and Lori Horvitz is, truly, a magician of the form. —Lee Ann Roripaugh, author of Dandarians Horvitz writes with a fine balance of wit and poignancy, deftly delivering her stories in a way that feels both personal and universal. The Girls of Usually is a read that stays with you—unsettling, complicated, and wholly rewarding. —Artis Henderson, author of Unremarried Widow Author bio: Lori Horvitz’ short stories, poetry and personal essays have appeared in a variety of literary journals and anthologies, including Chattahoochee Review, Epiphany, South Dakota Review, Southeast Review, Hotel Amerika, Thirteenth Moon, Tusculum Review, and Quarter After Eight. Her essays have been included in two Seal Press anthologies:P.S.: What I Didn't Say: Unsent Letters to Our Female Friends and Dear John, I’m in Love With Jane. She has been awarded writing fellowships from Fundación Valparaiso, The Ragdale Foundation, Yaddo, Cottages at Hedgebrook, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Blue Mountain Center. Horvitz is Professor of Literature and Language at University of North Carolina at Asheville, where she teaches courses in creative writing, literature, and directs their Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program. www.lorihorvitz.com

The Body Tourist by Dana Lise Shavin
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, March 10 at 7:30pm
About the book: While many writers have written candidly and eloquently about their struggles with depression, addictions, and eating disorders, those stories usually conclude once there is progress toward recovery. Beyond recovery there is another story, one that is about how we re-join the world, and, in the living years that follow the darkness, pursue a life that is creative, engaged, and deeply felt in our bones. This is the territory of The BodyTourist. As you might suspect, the burden of self-contempt, faulty logic, and interpersonal turmoil that are the character traits of depressive disorders and addictions do not miraculously disappear once medication and therapy have taken effect. Where, then, do these dangerous obsessions go once a person sets foot on the road to recovery? About the author: Dana Lise Shavin was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and now lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 1986, she obtained her Master's degree in Clinical Psychology and worked for fifteen years as a therapist, behavior specialist, and psychological examiner. For the past fifteen years, she has made her living as a fine art painter, exhibiting at outdoor art fairs and in galleries throughout the United States. In 2011, Dana returned to her mental health roots and became a certified professional life coach. She specializes in finding balance and fulfillment in life and work, and goal setting with soul. Dana's essays have appeared in a number of journals, including Oxford American, The Sun, The Writer, Alaska Quarterly Review, and many others. She has been a monthly columnist for the Chattanooga Times Free Press since 2002, and is the editor of the Chattanooga Jewish Federation newspaper, The Shofar.

DK and the Joy Machine and Marca Cassity play Charis!
Charis Books and More, Thursday, March 12 at 7pm
Come out for a great night of live music at Charis with two cutting edge women singer-song writers-- DK&TheJoyMachine and Marca Cassity!

DK& THE JOY MACHINE DK&theJoyMachine's new album, SHY ONE, out March 5th, has been described as "...very intense, colorful and diverse ... a novel of sorts. Dark, light, humorous & humble. " Her "quirky and smart" songs celebrate all the crucial things in life: unrequited love, falling in love with feral cats, and treating yourself with kindness. Known for her sultry, expressive voice, well crafted songs, and genre-blending, innovative work on mountain dulcimer---plucking, strumming, bowing and “rocking out” on this trad instrument, “DK”'s music is at turns evocative, moving and playful and fun. Her first studio recording, the EP, "Love Harder," released in January 25th, 2013, was described by VENTS magazine as "an album with heart, ...beauty, and passion. In every chord, note, or string you can feel poetry, sincerity, greatness... a record to closely pay attention to and be delighted by." www.dkandtheJoymachine.com https://www.facebook.com/dkANDtheJoyMachine https://www.reverbnation.com/dknthejoymachine

MARCA CASSITY Bay Area resident Marca Cassity delivers inspired folk rock spirit songs. Called a “soulful songstress,” by the L.A. Weekly, Marca was raised in rural Oklahoma. The product of her Osage Indian ancestry and blue-collar sweat, hard work is no mystery to Marca, and it shows in her art and her expression. In April 2014, Marca released "Songs from the Well," an 11-song, tribally-funded album produced by Julie Wolf, who has collaborated with such musical acts as Indigo Girls and Ani DiFranco. The album speaks to overcoming hardship through resilience, connection to nature, humor, love, spirituality, and heritage. On stage, Marca embraces her audiences with music, wit, ease and wisdom. http://www.marcacassity.com/

Kidliterate Book Club
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, March 24 at 7pm
Join us for a wide-ranging conversation in a new kind of book club. We'll be reading one book a month (children's or young adult fiction). Titles will be very carefully selected. We'll seek out books that push the boundaries of what kidlit is "supposed to do."

Preference will be give to stories that some might call "edgy" or "controversial." Books that offer exposure to the world our kids are growing up in, as well as imaginary landscapes.

These will be books that might scare other parents. Books with "language" and "mature content." They may be "upsetting" books. The kind of books that "give kids ideas."

We like ideas.

We believe that books are the very best place for kids to encounter scary things and foreign concepts. We believe that books can help prepare kids to engage with the world around them. We believe kids are smart and resilient, great at asking tough questions. We believe they should.

But we also just like reading kids' books.

So come if you like amazingly good books! Come if you'd like to be introduced to titles you might not otherwise read! Come if you think books should stir the pot. Come for a new an way to screen your child's summer reading! Come if you want to argue with us!

March's Book Pick is One for the Murpheys.

This is a Charis Circle Whole Children, Strong Families Program. The suggested donation is $5.
