Compassionate Yoga Therapy for Cancer Survivors and Thrivers with Karen O’Donnell Clarke

What is Compassionate Yoga Therapy?

Cancer changes your life. It knocks the wind out of your sails and rocks your world, causing physical and emotional changes that take time to heal.

 

Compassionate Yoga Therapy uses the 4 stages of healing - rest, restore, rebuild, and remember - to develop appropriate yoga practices to support your healing. Gentle therapeutic yoga movements at your own pace ease mobility while decreasing pain. Guided imagery, deep relaxation and simple meditation techniques promote feelings of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

 

From one who's been there, I know that a cancer diagnosis changes your life. The treatment changes your body, your mind, and your spirit. And I have good news. I got through it. And you can too. As a lifelong practitioner of yoga, I had tools to help me through the tough times, yoga practices that I could lean on to help me relax, breathe, calm my mind, and eventually stretch and strengthen my body. I want you to have these tools, too.

NEITHER MOUNTAIN NOR RIVER by Mike Freeman

Read a book review in the Providence Journal here: http://www.providencejournal.com/features/entertainment/books/20141012-book-review-lyrical-tales-of-fishing-with-his-father.ece 

 

KNOW THE NIGHT by Maria Mutch 

Maria Mutch is the author of Know the Night, a finalist for the Governor General's Literary Awards, and chosen by MacLean's Magazine as a "Best of 2014" and by Oprah.com as "A Memoir Too Powerful to Put Down." Her short fiction and essays have appeared in Poets & Writers, Guernica Magazine, and Literary Mama, among numerous other literary journals in Canada and the US. She lives in Rhode Island.

 

Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams, said, "Know the Night offers the magnificent vision of a mother's love--a love sculpted from jazz and ice and dreams; a love large enough to hold the darkness between midnight and dawn, large enough to hold multiple diagnoses and the vast margins of what they can't describe--large enough to hold a story of a polar explorer and his months alone in another kind of night. This memoir finds a candid, capacious language--always curious, often stunning--for the states of mystery and wonder at its core."

Mitchell Zuckoff 13 HOURS Special Event

10/25/2014 5:00 pm

Mitchell Zuckoff and (very likely) one of the GRS Operators with whom he wrote the book - will be at Bank Square Books for a talk and book signing!

13 HOURS: THE INSIDE ACCOUNT OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI

Saturday October 25 at 5pm

Local author from Boston and the author of the New York Times bestselling LOST IN SHANGRI LA. He pulled the narrative on the ground in Benghazi for 13 HOURS from 5 soldiers (two are still classified). Although the story has been politicized, at its core it is about a team of our best, most highly trained soldiers, working as contractors (as is the new face of modern warfare) without benefits, and in this case without any support for over 13 hours.

Six men saved over two dozen American lives that day, defending them against mortars and heavy fire, and lost one of their own in the process. They have not been recognized as heroes because—they’re no longer in our official service.

Tom Fatone will be at Bank Square Books for a book signing on Sunday, October 26th from 1 to 3pm. Please call 860-536-3795 for more details.
 
Description: If you are a true Nutmegger you have probably seen them in passing. You know, those blue signs that have the names of Connecticut's towns on them. Each town has one. The signs can be found on the town green, near the town hall, or next to that first congregational church. There are 169 signs, one sign to represent each town in the state. Each of the signs explains the history of the town and its founding fathers. Some even tell an interesting story or two. Over a thirteen-year period I visited each of Connecticut's towns and took pictures of these signs. Along the way, I met interesting people, discovered little-known facts, and saw things I never knew existed in Connecticut. This is a story about the town signs of Connecticut and the adventures I had while searching for them. Now sit back, enjoy, and learn about the signs of Connecticut.

Book Signing with Sue Ellen Thompson

11/08/2014 2:00 pm
11/08/2014 4:00 pm

Sue Ellen Thompson is the author of five books of poetry and the editor of The Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry. Her work has been included in the Best American Poetry series, read on National Public Radio by Garrison Keillor, and featured in U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser’s nationally syndicated newspaper column. Ms. Thompson taught at Wesleyan University, Middlebury College, Binghamton University, and  Central Connecticut State University before moving to the Eastern Shore of Maryland in 2006. She now mentors adult poets and teaches workshops at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda and Annapolis. She was awarded the 2010 Maryland Author Prize from the Maryland Library Association.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The poems in They explore the relationship between a conservative World War II-era grandfather and his nonconforming grandchild, who takes it upon herself to remain close to him as he faces his final years alone. She writes him postcards as she travels around the country, and it is this one-sided correspondence that reveals her abiding love for a man who raised five children in the post-war years and must now grapple with issues he has never had to confront. These poems explore the challenges that gender identity poses to three different generations.

Lisa Wilson A HISTORY OF STEPFAMILIES IN EARLY AMERICA Oyster Club Dinner

11/17/2014 6:00 pm
Join us Monday evening November 17th to celebrate A HISTORY OF STEPFAMILIES IN EARLY AMERICA by Lisa Wilson with an Oyster Club Dinner with the author.  Ticket information will be forthcoming, but will include a copy of the book and themed dinner expertly prepared by Mystic's fabulous farm to table restaurant.
Description of the book:  
Stepfamilies are not a modern phenomenon, but despite this reality, the history of stepfamilies in America has yet to be fully explored. In the first book-length work on the topic, Lisa Wilson examines the stereotypes and actualities of colonial stepfamilies and reveals them to be important factors in early United States domestic history. Remarriage was a necessity in this era, when war and disease took a heavy toll, all too often leading to domestic stress, and cultural views of stepfamilies during this time placed great strain on stepmothers and stepfathers. Both were seen either as unfit substitutes or as potentially unstable influences, and nowhere were these concerns stronger than in white middle-class families, for whom stepparents presented a paradox. 
Wilson shares the stories of real stepfamilies in early New England, investigating the relationship between prejudice and lived experience, and, in the end, offers a new way of looking at family units throughout history and the cultural stereotypes that still affect stepfamilies today.
About the Author:
Lisa Wilson is the Charles J. MacCurdy Professor of American history at Connecticut College.

Reviews:
"Well-researched and fascinating, A History of Stepfamilies in Early America does a fine job of challenging enduring stereotypes and contributes to current-day conversations about the experiences of children, women, and men within stepfamilies."
--Anne M. Boylan, University of Delaware

"Wilson tackles an unquestionably important topic at the intersection of the history of the family, the history of childhood, gender history, and a range of other subjects. This book will assuredly launch a sustained historiographical discussion about the complexity of American familism in the past and present."
--Wayne Bodle, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Tiffany Brown will be at Bank Square Books on Saturday August 2 from 2 - 4pm for a book signing with ANGER: HOW TO CONTROL IT SO IT WON'T CONTROL YOU.

About ANGER
by Dr. Tiffany Brown

Everyone has experienced it at least once in their life. Some experience it every day.

I have traveled all over the world and seen it in every place. I struggled with it as well. It can be a family problem for generations. It can be your greatest motivator or worst enemy.

Anger. Anger is defined by the Webster Dictionary as a strong feeling of displeasure and belligerence aroused by a wrong; wrath; ire.

I will show not only to control your anger from Christian principles but also to manage it until it motivates you; and does not hinder you. Get Ready.

Anger is nothing more than manifestation of fear. Once you eliminate fear, the anger will be gone. Become Fearless.
Dr. Tiffany Brown is native of Atlanta has taken great pride in her education and strives to continue to broaden her knowledge. Graduating with a degree in Political Science from the prestigious Spelman College in 2001, a Master's degree in Public Administration from Clark Atlanta in 2004 and also a Doctorate in Public Policy from Walden University in 2009, she earned these achievements through determination and the desire to achieve her goals.

She has held positions with the United States Government Accountability Office, Fulton County District Attorney's Office, Georgia Law Center for the Homeless, Georgia Conservation Voters, Supreme Court of Georgia, Equifax, Coca-Cola Enterprises, and Atlanta Bar Association. Upon Graduation from Walden University, she has truly impacted change as an academic and practitioner.
