Mindfulness & Meditation

Valerie Brandt leads us in a session of Yoga Nidra followed by the soothing sounds of her "singing crystal bowls." If you haven't tried it, but you've been feeling the need for calm and peace in your life, please join us! Yoga Nidra is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. There's enough room upstairs to allow us to maintain safe distances, whether seated upright or stretched out on the carpet. Bring a mat if you'd like to stretch out on the carpet and a sweater or blanket, too.

Story & Song Art Gallery

Story & Song Book Group

It is 1950. London is still reeling from World War II, and Margery Benson, a schoolmarm and spinster, is trying to get through life, surviving on scraps. One day, she reaches her breaking point, abandoning her job and small existence to set out on an expedition to the other side of the world in search of her childhood obsession: an insect that may or may not exist--the golden beetle of New Caledonia. When she advertises for an assistant to accompany her, the woman she ends up with is the last person she had in mind. Fun-loving Enid Pretty in her tight-fitting pink suit and pompom sandals seems to attract trouble wherever she goes. But together these two British ladies find themselves drawn into a cross-ocean adventure that exceeds all expectations and delivers something neither of them expected to find: the transformative power of friendship.

Online Event

With Wiley Cash & Terry Roberts

The setting for Terry Roberts's latest novel is Ellis Island in the years following World War I. Racial tensions in the U.S. are growing and the science of eugenics — minimizing the birth of "undesirables" — is widely accepted. Two investigators are there to figure out why some immigrants are dying of unexplained causes or disappearing entirely, and become targets themselves in a sinister plot to keep undesirable immigrants from entering the U.S. 

Register here to listen to Terry talk with Wiley Cash about his latest work, then join us to meet him in person at a "Literary Luncheon" after his book is published, Friday, Aug. 27 at 12:30.  $35 tickets include an autographed copy of the book, lunch with dessert and beverage of your choice included.
