The Teen Book Club
The Doylestown Bookshop, Sunday, October 26 at 2pm
The Teen Book Club

Our mission: To read and discuss teen books. We are a very informal group of young people who thoroughly enjoy reading books for young adults. We spend some of our time talking about our pick, and some of our time talking about books in general and what we like about them. Also dessert. We discuss dessert and eat it regularly.

We meet on the last Sunday of every month!

Call or stop in for more details! Next Meeting: Sunday, October 26th @ 2:00pm Discussing: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake Description:

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the murderous dead, and keep pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

Searching for a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas expects the usual: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.

Yet she spares Cas's life.

Book Signing w/Elizabeth Joyce & Luisa Rasiej
The Doylestown Bookshop, Friday, October 31 at 6:30pm
Friday, October 31st @ 6:30pm Book Signing & Discussion with Elizabeth Joyce & Luisa Rasiej Seeding and Nurturing the Garden of Your Soul: Walking the Middle Road Authored by Elizabeth Joyce, Contributions by Luisa Rasiej To harmonize with one’s nature or Soul vibration is to become one with the primordial essence of the Universe. The invisible Spiritual energy is metaphysical, as you cannot see, smell, or touch these energies. However, they can be “felt” and you become aware of them and their essence the more you work with meditation and becoming centered. This invisible energy, known as Shakti, Chi, The Holy Ghost, is not a ‘name’ or a ‘thing’, but the underlying natural order of the Universe whose ultimate essence is difficult to hold down or understand. The object of Spiritual practice is to ‘become One with these energies,’ for by whatever name you choose to call them, they are one in the same. This is known as entering into the State of Being. With all of the religions, the teachers, the books, and the Masters, the philosophy is one and the same. Spiritual practice is to become “One” with the Soul, to harmonize with your inner nature in order to achieve that which you have been born to do. When you are walking your path, you innately know it because it becomes effortless. You think it, talk about it, plan it, and do it. This always involves meditative and moral practices. In all its uses, Spiritual energy is considered to have ineffable qualities that prevent it from being defined or expressed in words. It can, however, be known or experienced, and its principles (which can be discerned by observing Nature) can be followed or practiced. Much philosophical writing focuses on the value of adhering to the principles of nature along with the Spiritual energies, and the various consequences of failing to do so. These are often explicitly moral/ethical arguments about proper behavior and usually refer to the natural and mercurial outcomes of action, comparable to karma; intrinsically related to the concepts of yin and yang, where every action creates counter-actions as unavoidable movements within manifestations of these energies. Your impact and connection to this energy force brings you a force filed containing unlimited possibilities. How you access it and use it is up to each and every individual Soul. Proper practice variously involves accepting, conforming to, or working with these natural developments. This book is an effort to lay it all out for you to embrace, comprehend, and begin to practice.

Elizabeth Joyce Born as one of two sets of identical twins, Elizabeth Joyce has been psychic since birth. Elizabeth is one of the very few psychics world wide that picked up on the Haitian Earthquake, the Philippines earthquake, tornado, and the Twin Towers tragedy in New York City. Thousands of people have witnessed Elizabeth Joyce’s incredible psychic powers on TV shows such as Unsolved Mysteries, Beyond Chance and The Psychic Detectives, as well as CNN News; She is a frequent guest on radio shows across the country, including Coast 2 Coast AM, and is now a “regular” on The ‘X’ Zone Radio/TV Show with Rob McConnell.

    Gloucester County African Americans in the Civil War
    Gloucester County Library - Glassboro, Monday, November 3 at 7pm
    When Andrew Jackson, John Hicks, and William Tribbett left Franklinville, formerly Little Ease, to fight in the Union army they joined a robust movement of African Americans across Gloucester County intent on defeating Southern slavery as well as Northern bigotry at home. On November 3, 7pm, historian Dr. James E. Johnson will provide a lively discussion on this important New Jersey history that is missing from the history books.
