    Contact: Tim Devin   617-501-5356   tdevin@yahoo.com
   

Being a parent is pretty challenging. And raising a kid while trying to be an artist/writer/you-name-it can feel pretty overwhelming– especially when you throw in Boston’s insanely high cost of living. But we’re creative people. Maybe if we get together and talk and listen, we can find ways to support each other.

Join us on Saturday, May 30th, from 2 to 3:30pm. Three creative parents will share how they balance their lives, and then we'll discuss it all as a group. And hopefully find some solutions.

“How to be an artist and a parent?” is a series of discussion events and an online forum. It’s set up by Greg Cook and Tim Devin, but is inspired by some initiatives in other cities.

    Contact: Carrie Russell     carrierussellbooks[at]gmail[dot]com
   

Please join us as we welcome Carrie Russell, author of Drowning Cactus, a novel set partially in Somerville.

When his botched cactus theft is mistaken for an eco-protest, Gordon Burstein is thrust into the national spotlight and expected to speak for the land he loves. He panics and runs, beginning a journey of self-discovery that takes him from spring break in Mexico, across the Sonora, all the way to Thoreau’s Walden Pond.

Press and fans scramble to track him down, but no one is more determined than Mora Sullivan, a disgraced environmentalist who has fallen hard for Gordon. She treks into the desert, determined to find inspiration and love.

Gordon and Mora must survive the wilderness, evade the law, and confront the many lies they’ve told the world and each other—all before they attempt to rescue a truckload of cacti from drowning in a New England swamp.

“With Drowning Cactus, Carrie Russell takes the reader on an exhilarating ride across the American landscape and into a brilliant quagmire of human obsession and desire. This is a dangerous, smart, and stunning debut.” – Laura van den Berg, author of The Isle of Youth

“Carrie Russell knows that serious stuff can be funny–even Saving the Earth.” – Heather Lockman, author of The Indian Shirt Story

“…starkly beautiful prose, detailing the relationships of damaged characters.” – Portland Book Review

This event is free and all are welcome!

We are pleased to welcome Josephine Bolling McCall, author of The Penalty for Success: My Father was Lynched in Lowndes County Alabama.

The author tells the story of the murder of a black man in 1940s Lowndes County, Alabama.  It is a story that reveals the scheme to cover up a "lynching."  Josephine Bolling McCall's story of her father's murder presents convincing evidence that he was lynched, although he was not hanged, mutilated, or burned before a crowd of people.  Elmore Bolling was shot six times in the front of his body with a pistol and once in the back with a shotgun.

After years of research, including interviews with relatives and elderly Lowndes County residents, Josephine Bolling McCall sought and found answers to many troubling questions that she had about her family, especially about events in her father's life.  Her journey of discover presents a revealing narrative of a time, a place, and a people that challenges us to rethink the reality of life for both blacks and whites in a rural, southern community.

The author will be available for a book signing immediately after the presentaion.  This presentation is free and open to the public; no reservations are necessary.

misc_handicap 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Meditation as Medication for the Soul Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Pamela Bednarik     Pbednarik@Hotmail.com
   

Join us for a free meditation workshop with Dr. Alan Post.

Inside us is an energy that can make us whole, physically, mentally, and spiritually. By learning to meditate accurately, we tap into this energy and heal our physical illnesses, emotional stress, and spiritual isolation--from within.

We seek peace and understanding in our busy lives. For many, there is a deep sense of yearning for greater satisfaction, fulfillment, and enjoyment. You may have heard about meditation, and that it can be helpful for physical health, stress reduction, and peace of mind. It has helped many find purpose in their lives, access creativity, and improve performance. Perhaps you've heard that meditation has aided others in times pain, anxiety, and confusion. This lively and practical workshop is designed to give an introduction into the multi-faceted aspects of meditation.  Dr. Post, contributing author to Meditation as Medication for the Soul, will clarify the many benefits of accurate meditation and will provide every participant a personal, instructed demonstration of meditation.

This workshop is free and all are welcome!
