Susan Coll discusses & signs The Stager
Vroman's Bookstore, Wednesday, July 23 at 7pm
Lars Jorgenson is a former tennis pro who has blown out both knees, become obese, and is now addicted to a cocktail of prescription drugs. He's going crazy in the affluent Maryland suburbs where his home is up for sale. Idle on the market for months, the home is now being staged. Into the messy personal life of Lars and his beautiful wife Bella comes Eve, an unemployed journalist-turned-stager who immediately realizes that she is in the home of her former best friend. Eve knows way too much about Bella, including the questionable paternity of the meddling young child who lives in this house. Questions of friendship, loyalty, fidelity, sobriety, and sanity are raised in this dark comedy of how we live in this modern age.

Dr. Forti's mystical experiences will forever alter your concepts about life, healing, and man's true potential for evolutionary change. This revealing and insightful story speaks to the very essence of our soul's purpose - to find a greater connection to the God Source in all living things.

She retired her practice in 2005 to devote her energies full-time to bringing forth tools for transformational growth. Both an author of metaphysical children's books and the writer/producer of the TV webseries STACKS (at StacksTV.com), she devotes herself to what she calls "Truth-related Projects." She is a world-wide inspirational speaker on spirituality and creating positive consciousness change. She is also the developer of the holistic-based healing technology, Trinfinity8. Currently, she resides in Santa Monica.

Vroman's Bookstore, Tuesday, July 29 at 7pm
Kara is a junior in high school who has it all. She's popular, has an amazing boyfriend, and she's definitely going to get that coveted homecoming queen crown. Her home life, however, is less glamorous since her parents can't seem to stop fighting. To escape from the constant bickering at home, Kara heads to a party only to find her boyfriend with his hands all over another girl. Furious, Kara leaves to take a drive, and, as she's crossing an intersection, a car comes out of nowhere and slams into the driver's side of her car. When she finally wakes up, she has no memory of what transpired the night before. Most importantly, though, she can't feel her legs. As Kara adjusts to life as a paralyzed teen, she begins to understand that what matters in life isn't what happens to you. It's the choices you make and the people you surround yourself with.
