Vroman’s Bookstore presents Barney Frank discussing and signing Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage
Vroman's Bookstore, Friday, March 27 at 12pm
Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage is one man’s account of the country’s transformation and the tale of a truly momentous career. Many Americans recall Frank’s lacerating wit, whether it was directed at the Clinton impeachment (“What did the president touch, and when did he touch it?”) or the pro-life movement (some people believe “life begins at conception and ends at birth”). But his private and public lives are less well-known. For more than four decades, he was at the center of the struggle for personal freedom and economic fairness. From the battle over AIDS funding in the 1980s to the debates over “big government” during the Clinton years to the 2008 financial crisis, Barney Frank played a key role. In this feisty and often moving memoir, Frank candidly discusses the satisfactions, fears, and grudges that come with elected office. He recalls the emotional toll of living in the closet and how his public crusade against homophobia conflicted with his private accommodation of it. He discusses his painful quarrels with allies; his friendships with public figures, from Tip O’Neill to Sonny Bono; and how he found love with his husband, Jim Ready, becoming the first sitting member of Congress to enter a same-sex marriage. Event location: South Pasadena Library’s Community Room located at 1115 El Centro St. This is a ticketed event. Tickets are $30.00 + tax and include one ticket and one copy of Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage. Tickets cannot be shipped. We are now accepting paid reservations. You may purchase your tickets online at vromansbookstore.com or by calling the Will Call department at 626-449-5320.

Vroman’s Local Author Day KIDS EDITION Introduces Gloria Avrech & James Matlack Raney
Vroman's Bookstore, Sunday, March 29 at 12pm
Gloria Avrech discusses and signs Nana’s Amazing Journey: A Shamanic Children’s Story

Nana is seeking a connection to her inner Spirit. Her granddaughter, Lily-Rose, helps her by creating a special experience which ends up surprising and amazing both of them. Their imaginative travel takes them into magical and real, inner and outer worlds. In this delightful story, the reader learns about shamanic ritual and journey work. Also, the reader learns that the old fashioned idea, “Children should be seen and not heard.” is incorrect. Actually, children should be seen and heard; someone young can instruct someone old. Wisdom and knowledge can be found in humans of all ages.

James Matlack Raney discusses and signs Jim Morgan and the King of Thieves

Eleven year-old Jim Morgan once had a home, a life of comfort, and a future full of promise. But all that changed the night his father was murdered. Now Jim is on the run from his father’s enemies, a wicked count and his vengeful son, and at the same time, trying to decipher the secret to the last mystery his father left him – the hidden location of an ancient treasure.

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.
