Meeting ID: 466 684 005
Anne-Marie Keppel is, among many other things, a Death Doula and death educator. She has recently published her first book, Death Nesting, illuminating the ways in which we can engage with death, whether as caregivers or simply as mortal human beings. This is both an invitation to think about death and how its inevitability affects us all and also a very practical guide to being with those who are dying.
Anne-Marie will speak about her book and her work, answer questions, and invite discussion.
CANCELLED – Breakfast Book Club
Our Breakfast Book Club is cancelled for April, but we hope to return to the Flower Basket to discuss Women Talking in May. Check back for updates!
DATE TBD – Book Folding and Paper Crafts Workshop
Learn to make a folded book sculpture and create paper flowers to decorate it! We will focus on some basic folding techniques and shapes and explore some fun and easy ways to make beautiful decorations from unwanted books. Books, scissors, glue, and decorative materials will be provided. Everyone will bring home a piece of handcrafted book art!
Pre-registration is requested, with a $10 materials fee. Register here or sign up in the store.
DATE TBD – at Front Seat Coffee – Book Discussion
Join The Galaxy Bookshop and AWARE during Sexual Violence Awareness Month for a book discussion of Chanel Miller’s powerful memoir, Know My Name. Miller’s letter to Brock Turner – the man sentenced to just six months in a county jail for sexually assaulting her on the Stanford campus – inspired changes in California law and an uprising of women who felt empowered to speak out about their own experiences with sexual violence.
Purchase this book from The Galaxy Bookshop! We will donate proceeds from sales of Know My Name to AWARE. You can purchase the book in store, or order online here.
NOTE: This event will be held at Front Seat Coffee.
DATE TBD – Michael Snyder and Lynn Levine
Two Vermont naturalists join us for an evening dedicated to exploring the forests and fields of Vermont. Lynn Levine is the author of two of our best selling field guides – Mammal Tracks and Scat: Life Size Tracking Guide and Identifying Ferns the Easy Way.
Michael Snyder is the author of Woods Whys: An Exploration of Forests and Forestry. He is currently Vermont’s Commissioner of Forests, Parks, and Recreation.
