BARBARA A. PERKINS BOOKSIGNING (THE MAGIC OF MENTORING: Pearls of Wisdom)
Eso Won Books, Sunday, March 29 at 3pm
The Magic of Mentoring: Pearls of Wisdom is a collection of short stories written by 47 Pearls (Contributors) who believe as Originator/Co-author, Barbara A. Perkins, that mentoring is the key to success for young people today. ""Every child deserves to be mentored. Every child deserves to feel protected and nurtered. Every child deserves to feel that they have a chance at doing and being something great in life. Sadly, this is not our reality."" Author, Barbara A. Perkins In planning and researching for this book, Perkins, (the originator) learned that a 16 inch necklace requires 47 matching pearls. She discovered that expert pearl processors culls 10,000 pearls to find 47 that are considered a match. It is a highly specialized skill to find matching pearls for one strand. There are many types of pearls, however Perkins, the originator selected the Tahitian Pearl or the Black Pearl as it is most often called. The Tahitian Pearl is a rainbow of colors which make them a prized possession with additional qualities such as luster, pure surface, clean and without blemishes, great shape and perfect size. The 47 Pearls (contributors) of The Magic of Mentoring: Pearls of Wisdom are a match as they are rare individuals living their lives in service and following their heart and passision for our most prized possessions, our children. They each share their personal journeys on how their lives were changed for the better because of mentoring. The Pearls know firsthand about the overwhelming need to find perfect matches for children in cities across this nation in need of all the benefits that positive mentoring will bring to their lives. In The Magic of Mentoring: Pearls of Wisdom, each of the 47 Pearls (contributors) is a mentor. If you're not a mentor, after you have read The magic of Mentoring: Pearls of Wisdom, you will ask yourself two questions: Why am I not a mentor and how do I begin to mentor? Come early!

Vroman’s Local Author Day Introduces Joseph Nicks, Maral Boyadjian, Hadley Fitzgerald & Judith Harte
Vroman's Bookstore, Sunday, March 29 at 4pm
Joseph Nicks discusses and signs Tales from the Otherground

The Otherground is a vast terrestrial expanse. It encompasses most all of the biosphere that lies beyond the total annexation of the triune world. It is that marginalized region where those exiled from the first, second, and third worlds go to get some thinking done, some soul-searching done, some work done.

Maral Boyadjian discusses and signs As the Poppies Bloomed

On the eve of war and destruction, an Armenian family tries to maintain its traditional way of life in this historical novel. Powerful and sensitive, this tragic novel helps illuminate a historical episode still too little known or acknowledged.

Hadley Fitzgerald & Judith Harte discuss and sign Images of Soul: Reimagining Astrology

Out of a friendship and collegial conversation spanning three decades, Hadley Fitzgerald and Judith Harte have created a provocative fusion of astrological symbolism, Depth Psychotherapy, and Imaginal Psychology. Their discourse interfaces with the “acorn theory” of the late archetypal psychologist James Hillman who conjectured that each life has its own soul's code, its own calling.

Vroman's Bookstore, Monday, March 30 at 7pm
Benjamin Pearl is an undernourished, nearly feral eleven-year-old boy living in the Montana wilderness. Pete Snow is a social worker that is trying to help Benjamin. However, Pete comes face-to-face with the boy’s disturbed father, Jeremiah. With courage and a lot of caution, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist. As Pete’s own family spins out of control, Pearl’s activities park the interest of the FBI, putting Pete at the center of an enormous manhunt from which no one will emerge unscathed.

Charles Harper Webb presents and signs Brain Camp
Vroman's Bookstore, Thursday, April 2 at 7pm
"Powered by a fierce, compassionate intelligence, Brain Camp explores with clarity and vividness a wide spectrum of emotions--love to hate, tenderness to brutality--all from a perspective both universal yet distinctly Webb's. Metaphors of startling aptness and originality, a voice at once endearing and provocative, high musicality, propulsive energy, wild imaginative leaps, as well as a mastery of diction from lyricism to street-speak, create a reading experience of the first order. These poems go down easy, but pack a wallop. As Robert Frost said poetry should do, Brain Camp "begins in delight and ends in wisdom." (University of Pittsburg Press)
