Poems have appeared or are forthcoming in The Literary Review, Painted Bride Quarterly, Cortland Review, Seattle Review, Tipton Review, The American Poetry Review and others.

By day he writes about high-end home theater and other electronics. He teaches poetry writing at conferences and at Philadelphia’s Musehouse and runs the blog www.unIambic.com. Writing Sample of Grant Clauser Empty Chair of the Emperor There’s no escaping the dust and smog of Beijing, the cars static and tense paused under construction cranes. Bicycles point toward sunset, riders’ knees holding energy like the springs of cheap watches sold in Tiananmen Square. In the Forbidden City a guard leans against a centuries-old lion, pulls cigarette smoke deep into his body. Things become artifacts only after they’ve been used, their fire burned out and ground into dust. The tourist couple in bright coats at the rope stare past the empty chair of the emperor, she thinking about the dull eyes of koi on the carved dais, he looking at the worn stone steps leading to courtyards, the clap of shoes across the bridge, how rain-stained flags gather all the breeze they can and hold it, how voices linger in the Hall of Harmony long after the tongues have stilled.

Book Signing w/Lori Clipner Hynson & Gospel Choir Performance (Friday, April 25 at 6:30pm)
SuperGal vs. GOD Friday, April 25th at 6:30pm Book Signing with Lori Clipner Hynson with a gospel performance by The Second Baptist Church of Doylestown Mass Choir and The Back Bench Boys Secrets of a Recovering SuperGal Revealed New book for those women who know they can do anything, but feel the need to do everything! One woman’s page-turning, epic journey from SuperGal to surrender and redemption SuperGal—dynamo, achiever, well-organized, a community leader, and supremely independent. A fixer, she spent thirty-one years trying to hold together her teenage marriage and two kids, attempting to be all things to all people and trying to pursue her dreams. She was SuperGal to the world; a Shadow Face at home. Now, alone for the first time in her life, she cherished her newfound freedom from emotional bondage. 2 parts memoir, 1 part fiction, a jigger of love story and dollop of humor, SuperGal vs. GOD (Broken Shoe Press, July 2013) by Lori Hynson is the story of a woman who thought she could handle her own life, and the rest of the world, all by herself. Hynson wasn’t looking for love until the moment she was surprised by a gift of love she never saw coming. From a sweet man who began to paint for her the canvas of how love should look. She had no idea. Slowly, her icy fears melted away. But within weeks, joy turned to despair when he fell desperately ill. Then he got worse, then even worse and stayed that way. In typical SuperGal fashion, she rolled up her sleeves and went to work. She would fix this, too. She simply had to, and she would do it all on her own. She couldn’t bear to lose him now, not after waiting her whole life. God wanted her to turn to Him for help and to trust Him. But she wouldn’t and couldn’t. She hardly knew Him because he was only a Sunday Acquaintance. This SuperGal could handle anything that life threw her way. Until she couldn’t. Until she utterly failed. Until finally, God had her right where He wanted her. Through rage, despair, messengers, and miracles, SuperGal learned the hard way that Someone had a better plan. Someone was knocking who had the answer she needed and she only had to open the door. Taking on immense responsibility, organizing major events and working herself ragged was a regular occurrence for Hynson. That is, until her "super powers" failed, and she realized it wasn’t her job to run this planet. With this realization, and giving her life to God, came a major release. Through her own profound experience and "recovery," Hynson helps other SuperGals make this realization as well—that they needn’t feel responsible for the whole world because in the end even SuperGals can’t control life’s events. They can learn to ditch their own bootstraps and reach for God’s hand instead. "I have a strong desire to reach women, just like me, who are struggling to hold all the pieces of their lives in place and are overburdened and overwhelmed by everyday life," says Hynson. "I want to help them drop the ball-and-chain of guilt over circumstances they can’t control, and decrease the worry and fear in their lives. She wants to help women travel from stressed to blessed - one surrender at a time! About the Author Lori Hynson, "SuperGal Stress Whisperer – From Stressed to Blessed" is a first-time author of SuperGal vs. GOD. As a Recovering SuperGalaholic, she is an expert in recognizing how futile it all is. She speaks into the heart of the woman who knows she can do anything, but feels the pressure to do everything! A former marketing executive, Lori knows the ropes to help women climb out of the chasm of control and self-reliance, and to learn to trust God instead. Fueled by her passion to inspire women who struggle to do too much, Lori shares her SuperGal Recovery secrets. With humor, song, bare-it-all-honesty, and a sincere love for Jesus Christ, Lori reaches out to hurting and overburdened women to encourage them to surrender to God. She wants to help them realize IT'S NOT THEIR JOB TO RUN THIS PLANET! Lori is a wife, mother, Nana and retired business owner. Not to mention singer, ballet teacher and university cheerleading coach. Oh, and (deep breath) major event planner, local politician, community leader and inexhaustible go-getter. She is still most of these things. But first and foremost, she's a huge fan of Jesus Christ! Lori and and her husband have five grown children and eleven grandchildren, and live in Pennsylvania.

Philadelphia Area Highly Sensitive Persons Group (Saturday, April 26 at 11am)
Philadelphia Area Highly Sensitive Persons Group

Saturday, April 26th at 11:00 AM One of the members of this meetup, Damian, attended a weekend seminar for HSPs put on by Elaine Aron. One of the topics she covered was the latest research on the HSP trait. Damian has offered to pass on to us what he learned at that presentation. Come join us at our monthly meeting to discuss the trait of High Sensitivity. Based on Elaine Aron's book, "The Highly Sensitive Person", we'll delve into the gifts and challenges of the Highly Sensitive Person. Since the group is based on the work of Elaine Aron, to participate in this group we require that you take the HSP quiz located in Elaine Aron's book , "The Highly Sensitive Person" or on her website hsperson.com. We also require that you read "The Highly Sensitive Person" before being approved as a member of this group. Elaine is known for saying that at least once in your life you should have the experience of being in "a room full of us". Typically HSPs do not look forward to going to social events, especially when the people and the space is unknown. However most HSP's who find their way to our meetup are very grateful to be with us. There is a sense of quiet, deep respect and unspoken connection which is palpable. Being together in one place helps us to feel the exquisiteness of our trait of sensitivity and therefore we can recognize it within ourselves as a gift and do the self-care which we need to do to accommodate for the challenging situations we often find ourselves in.

Happy @ Work - Book Launch with Jim Donovan (Saturday, April 26 at 6pm)
Happy @ Work: 60 Simple Ways to Stay Engaged and Be Successful

Book Launch with

Jim Donovan

Saturday, April 26th

6:00 - 8:00pm Even in a tight economy, job satisfaction shouldn’t be considered a luxury; fulfilled, happy employees are productive, innovative, and loyal. And because employed Americans work more hours than those in most industrialized countries, workplace fulfillment spills over into families and communities. Jim Donovan, a small business owner, consultant, and speaker, has worked with employees and employers for 25 years. In that time he has tested and honed these shift-producing strategies. From managing time, making decisions, and marking milestones to breaking patterns, bouncing back, and becoming exceptional, each tip’s method and rationale is clearly explained and illustrated by a real workplace vignette. Each tool empowers with the knowledge that no matter the circumstance, employees can think, act, and feel in ways that create purpose, success, and, yes, happiness. About the Author Jim Donovan speaks regularly to employees and executives at small business and large corporations. He is a frequent media guest and expert source on personal development, business success, and the spiritual laws that develop both. He lives in Buckingham, PA. http://www.jimdonovan.com/ All our in-store events are free and open to the public.

The Teen Book Club April Selection

Next Meeting: Sunday, April 27th @ 2:00pm

Discussing: More Than This by Patrick Ness Book Description:

From two-time Carnegie Medal winner Patrick Ness comes an enthralling and provocative new novel chronicling the life — or perhaps afterlife — of a teen trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world.

A boy named Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighborhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust, and completely abandoned. What’s going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this. . . .

But when they discover the pirate ship, they hear eerie moans and groans coming from within. What's making those sounds? Could the pirate ghosts be real?

Dr. Lynne Hartnett -The Defiant Life of Vera Figner -Book Signing (Saturday, May 31 at 5pm)
Book Signing & Presentation with

Dr. Lynne Hartnett The Defiant Life of Vera Figner

Surviving the Russian Revolution Saturday, May 31st 5:00pm This engaging biography tells the dramatic story of a Russian noblewoman turned revolutionary terrorist. Born in 1852 in the last years of serfdom, Vera Figner came of age as Imperial Russian society was being rocked by the massive upheaval that culminated in the Bolshevik revolution of 1917. At first champion of populist causes and champion of women's higher education, Figner later became a leader of the terrorist party The People's Will and was an accomplice in the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881. Drawing on extensive archival research and careful reading of Figner's copious memoirs, Lynne Ann Hartnett reveals how Figner survived the Bolshevik revolution and Stalin's Great Purges and died a lionized revolutionary legend as the Nazis bore down on Moscow in 1942. Dr. Lynne Hartnett Assistant Professor of History Director of Russian Area Studies Director of the Center for the Study of Violence and Conflict Villanova University Soon after I began my Ph.D. program, I became fascinated with the noblewomen who belonged to the Russian revolutionary terrorist organization the People’s Will. It seemed counterintuitive that women who benefited from the social and political order in Russia would conspire to eviscerate it. I decided to explore this group and the individual women who joined this radical organization. As I did, the experience of Vera Figner stood out. Figner abandoned a medical career and material privileges to devote herself to the revolutionary cause. She survived two decades in the so-called Russian Bastille and then emerged damaged but determined to become socially active and politically significant. My Ph.D. dissertation explored Figner’s life before the Russian Revolution of 1917. During the past few years I completely revised this dissertation and challenged its conceptual basis. As a result of my own life process and my continued teaching and scholarship I have transformed the dissertation into an entirely new book that not only extends the original narrative through the 1917 revolution but presents a much more complex subject in a more critical light.

Storytime & Book Signing Just One More by Jennnifer Hansen Rolli Saturday, June 14th @ 11:00am

Sometimes Ruby needs just one more minute of sleep, one more thingy for her hair, one more push on the swing, and one more scoop on her cone, (and one more, and one more, and one more . . .) until one more is just too much. Maybe it’s time for just one? If you know a someone like Ruby, Just One More will be just right!

Jennifer Hansen ran her own design firm for many years before returning to her first love: oil painting. She lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with her family. She (usually) gets a kick out of her own children pushing for “just one more” until the occasional crash! boom! bang! and the realization that she has let them express a little too much independence!

Kids Concert & Storytime w/Richard John McLaughlin (Saturday, June 21 at 11am)
Kids Concert & Storytime With Richard John McLaughlin Saturday, June 21st 11:00am No one is born a bully. Something happened! This book teaches young children to have empathy and compassion for the bully. It targets children in grades 2-3. Richard John McLaughlin's book, "A Skunk With a Stinky Attitude," is his first book. The story is based upon his experiences working with special needs children since he was a teenager. Richard is also a children's singer song-writer known locally as, Eco-Man. His work in the environment earned him The Pennsylvania's Conservation Educator of the Year in 2000. He has performed for thousands of children singing songs about environment, ecology, and peace. From the book They all climbed to the top and Steve yelled, “We claim this tree as our new fort!” Ricky said, “I can’t believe it. I like this better than our last fort.” “Thank you,” Becky said to Oswald. “You are welcome. Try not to wake me up when I take a nap,” replied Oswald. “Okay!” all three of them said at once. “What do you want to do now?” asked Ricky. “Let’s play hide and seek,” suggested Steve. “Okay, you said it, you’re it!” yelled Becky and Ricky as they ran into the field. Steve started counting, and Becky and Ricky found a hiding place next to their old fort. As they waited for Steve to try to find them, Ricky heard a sound. “Can you hear that?” whispered Ricky.“Yes, it sounds like someone is crying,” said Becky quietly. “Maybe someone is hurt,” suggested Ricky. “I think it is coming from over there,” Becky said standing up. They both started to move towards the sound they heard. Steve saw them and yelled, “Hey, how come you’re not hiding?” “Be quiet, I think someone is hurt,” whispered Becky. They all stood still for a minute, and then they heard the noise again. They approached the area and saw a black animal curled up in a ball, crying. They were all scared, but they were curious and worried too. “Are you all right?” stammered Steve to the animal. As the stranger uncurled, they all saw the white stripe down its back. It was Albert! All three of them froze a moment until Albert looked up with tears in his eyes and cried, “It’s gone. The apple tree fort is gone.” “Oh my!” said Becky. “It’s Albert!” Steve got a little mad. He yelled at Albert, “So why does that matter to you?” “Oh, he’s just mad because he won’t be able to steal our apples this year,” said Ricky. Albert stood up and started to walk away. He quietly explained, “You wouldn’t understand even if I told you. I used to watch you guys play all the time.” “That’s impossible! We would have smelled you,” yelled Steve. Albert turned to Steve, walked right up to him, and asked, “Do you smell me now?” Steve backed away and Becky said, “Why, no, we don’t.” Albert turned to walk away and muttered, “Oh, just forget it. I am going away. Nobody understands.” “That’s the first thing you said to us that makes sense,” said Ricky under his breath. “Yeah, well, we don’t want you around here anyway,” Steve laughed. But, as Albert walked around the corner and disappeared into the woods, a sad feeling hit Becky right in her heart. For the first time she felt sorry for Albert. Suddenly, Becky felt like she needed to talk to her mother.
