Ellen Stimson -Good Grief -Book Signing (Tuesday, October 21 at 6:15pm)
Book Signing with Ellen Stimson Tuesday, October 21st @ 6:15 pm

One vacation changed everything. Ellen Stimson and her husband had such a wonderful time in Vermont that they wondered what living there would really be like. What if we stayed here . . . forever? So began the series of adventures and misadventures of Ellen Stimson's hilarious first book, Mud Season. Now, having settled the family in Vermont's rich muddy soil, they are faced with new challenges of raising kids in the paradise of this very small, very rural town. Good Grief tells the tales of the hopes and dreams of parents just trying to do their best and not always succeeding. Imagine being the mom of the kid who peed on his teacher's chair . . . On. Purpose. Now imagine the governor asking you about it Good Grief is all about the inevitable moment right after somebody says, What next? Ellen Stimson's irrepressible optimism and good humor prevail as she, her two husbands, their three kids, and various much-loved pets face down real life, and even death and grieving, with good humor intact. This is life in a state where everyone knows everything, and everything is everybody's else's business."

Good grief! from Almost Blue on Vimeo.

He learns about the Louisiana Purchase, the two explorers' epic journey across the North American continent, and the amazing discoveries and innovation it sparked. Breakout by Newt Gingrich It is not between the Left and the Right, but between the past and the future. America is on the edge of a Breakout. In fact, we are poised for one of the most spectacular leaps in human well-being in history. Pioneers of the future--innovators and entrepreneurs--are achieving breakthroughs in medicine, transportation, energy, education, and other fields that will make the world a dramatically different and better place. About the Authors: Callista Gingrich Callista Gingrich is the President of Gingrich Productions, a multimedia production company based in Washington, DC. Callista and her husband, Newt, host and produce historical and public policy documentaries. Recent films include A City Upon A Hill, America at Risk, Nine Days That Changed The World, Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny, Rediscovering God in America, Rediscovering God in America II: Our Heritage, and We Have the Power. Mrs. Gingrich is the author of the New York Times best-selling children’s series featuring Ellis the Elephant. Her children’s books include Sweet Land of Liberty, about American exceptionalism, Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride, about Colonial America, and her latest book, Yankee Doodle Dandy, about the American Revolution. Callista’s photography is featured in the New York Times best seller, Rediscovering God in America, as well as in, Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny, a photographic collection inspired by Newt and Callista’s award-winning documentary film. Newt Gingrich is well-known as the architect of the “Contract with America” that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in forty years. After he was elected Speaker, he disrupted the status quo by moving power out of Washington and back to the American people. Under his leadership, Congress passed welfare reform, the first balanced budget in a generation, and the first tax cut in sixteen years. In addition, the Congress restored funding to strengthen defense and intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission. Today Newt Gingrich is the co-host of CNN’s Crossfire, where he continues to advocate bold policy ideas. He is a Senior Scientist at Gallup.

The Teen Book Club (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 (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.

Glimmerglass Book Signing w/Marly Youmans (Tuesday, November 4 at 6:30pm)
GlimmerGlass Marly Youmans Reading & Book Signing Tuesday, November 4th @ 6:30pm Perhaps it was a sense of estrangement from the everyday that drew Cynthia Sorrel to the village of Cooper Patent. The failed painter was lured by the gate house with its seven doors, the lake with its tower, and the magical air of a place that couldn't quite decide whether it was fictional, mythic, or real. The gate house should have been a first clue that she was on a journey, and soon she begins to glimpse and then to pursue a figure in the woods near her house, convinced she has seen the Muse. As she reclaims her calling as a painter and moves deeper into the uncanny world of Cooper Patent, Cynthia is finds herself at the heart of a labyrinth of mystery. She will have to navigate its dream depths and secrets, brilliant or dark, locked behind a door that opens into the earth. About the Author Marly Youmans, "A writer of rare ability" (Baton Rouge Advocate), is the award-winning author of a dozen books. Recent works include A Death at the White Camellia Orphanage, called "the finest and the truest period novel I've read in years" by the late Lucius Shephard; and Thaliad, hailed as "a work of genius," "amazing, mesmerizing" by novelist Lee Smith. A native of the Carolinas, Youmans now lives near the mouth of the Susquehanna with her husband and three children. All our in-store events are free and open to the public.

The Science of PLAY Workshop w/ Susan G. Solomon, PhD (Wednesday, November 5 at 6:30pm)
The Science of PLAY Book Signing & Presentation with Author Susan G. Solomon Wednesday, November 5th @ 6:30pm

About the Book: Poor design and wasted funding characterize today’s American playgrounds. A range of factors—including a litigious culture, overzealous safety guidelines, and an ethos of risk aversion—have created uniform and unimaginative playgrounds. These spaces fail to nurture the development of children or promote playgrounds as an active component in enlivening community space.

Solomon’s book demonstrates how to alter the status quo by allying data with design. Recent information from the behavioral sciences indicates that kids need to take risks; experience failure but also have a chance to succeed and master difficult tasks; learn to plan and solve problems; exercise self-control; and develop friendships. Solomon illustrates how architects and landscape architects (most of whom work in Europe and Japan) have already addressed these needs with strong, successful playground designs. These innovative spaces, many of which are more multifunctional and cost effective than traditional playgrounds, are both sustainable and welcoming. Having become vibrant hubs within their neighborhoods, these play sites are models for anyone designing or commissioning an urban area for children and their families.

The Science of Play, a clarion call to use playground design to deepen the American commitment to public space, will interest architects, landscape architects, urban policy makers, city managers, local politicians, and parents.

About the Author: Susan G. Solomon, PhD SUSAN G. SOLOMON (PhD, University of Pennsylvania) is the author of American Playgrounds: Revitalizing Community Space and Louis I. Kahn’s Jewish Architecture. She heads her own research firm, Curatorial Resources & Research, in Princeton, New Jersey.

Barbara is haunted by the messages carved upon her bones. Greta may or may not be a mass-murdering arsonist. And for some reason, Martin never takes off his sunglasses. Unsurprisingly, no one believes their horrific tales until they are sought out by psychotherapist Dr. Jan Sayer. What happens when these likely-insane outcasts join a support group? Together they must discover which monsters they face are within and which are lurking in plain sight.

Peter Yarrow - Book Signing, Stories & Songs (Monday, November 10 at 6pm)
Book Signing, Stories & Songs with Peter Yarrow Monday, November 10th @ 6:00pm Peter will be signing and speaking about his newest book Peter Paul & Mary Fifty Years in Music and Life Finally . . . here is the first and only book that visually tells us the intimate story of Peter, Paul, and Mary and their music, through their own words and with iconic images that follow their passionate, fifty-year journey to the center of America’s heart. The very best of thousands of photographs, many rare and never before published, taken over five decades by some of the world’s top photographers, follow them from their earliest performances in the 1960s, when Mary was the most desired, beautiful, and charismatic performer and a new role model for women. Follow the trio as they lead America to discover the passionate soul of folk music. Join the struggle for racial equality, social justice, and freedom in this memorable journey, from the historic 1963 March on Washington with Martin Luther King, Jr., to the trio’s appearance before a half million people in 1969 to end the Vietnam War, to their singing at the Hollywood Bowl for Survival Sunday in 1978, helping to launch the anti-nuke movement, the world’s first international environmental movement. Through these images, you can feel and almost hear the trio’s songs calling for a more caring, better world as you see them performing with a courage and conviction that became for so many the embodiment and sound track of their generation’s awakening to conscience, to activism, and to a new dream for all of humankind. Peter, Paul, and Mary’s songs of defiant hope and a certain unmasked innocence are still a powerful part of our American consciousness, and this book reenacts the history of how the trio marked our lives with their indelible stamp of honesty of the sort we yearn to recapture and recreate in our own time—for ourselves, our children, and the generations to come. About the Authors Peter, Paul, and Mary came into being at the dawn of John F. Kennedy’s presidency, as America entered one of its most dramatic periods of social and political change. With music being one of the great forces that brought them together, Americans united in unprecedented ways to create a more just and peaceful society. Folk music, with its ability to reach people’s hearts, became the sound track of this remarkable quest, and Peter, Paul, and Mary became standard-bearers of America’s new hopes and dreams.

Restoration of Deceit

"If you have read Brenda's first book "Restoration", then you will enjoy reading "Restoration of Deceit"... as Elsey continues her life journey and her walk with Christ. This book is intriguing, entertaining but yet outré with a very emotional ending. "

Elsey turned around and there she was staring into the eyes of the man who raped her. He later begged her for forgiveness, but his cruel act was like a lethal injection which had quickly killed her self-esteem and her dreams of happiness. She knew that forgiving him would restore the joy of her salvation. Was she willing to forgive? Restoration Elsey, a naive, young, and beautiful woman, is victimized in a terrible crime and ends up beaten and raped. She is horrified when she finds out that she is pregnant. Her dream is to be a mother, but how can she keep this baby? Her parents are outraged and insist on her terminating the pregnancy. The thought of that horrible night gives her chills and leaves her wanting revenge. For Elsey, abortion is not an option. Her only choice is to put her future in the hands of the Lord. Brenda Topping From birth, God gives everyone gifts and talents, and if one does not use it, then it will be a waste. A gift from God is something Brenda Topping would like to keep and forever cherish. She has a passion for writing, and believes if she can inspire even one person and make a difference in their life, then she knows she has accomplished something. Brenda lives in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, with her husband and family. Growing up in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, her dream was to become a writer. All our in-store events are free and open to the public.
