Description:
Mary Cassatt Miller falls for famous photojournalist Ethan Graham. But it's complicated. For months at a time, Ethan's work takes him to Afghanistan, and Cass, who's passionate about her job in Atlanta, wants a husband who comes home at night. Then, there's the issue of family--he wants one; she doesn't. What they do want is a life together. In this elegant and honest debut novel, Cass and Ethan must navigate that fine line between the things they want for themselves and the life they want together, and it appears that Cass will have to choose one or the other.

Join us to kick of the tour for Nick Bruel's newest chapter book for kids! See Kitty as you've never seen her before: EXERCISING (reluctantly) in the latest installment of the phenomenally successful New York Times–bestelling series. Kitty is terribly out of shape—she can barely torment Puppy without needing a break to huff and puff! When Kitty's owner catches her wheezing, Kitty is told it's time to EXERCISE. It takes some serious convincing, a high-stakes competition, and a little bit of trickery but eventually Kitty gets into the competitive spirit . . . albeit reluctantly. What did you expect? Will our favorite feline friend learn what it means to be a good sport? Find out in this hilarious addition to the Bad Kitty series. Nick Bruel is the author and illustrator of the phenomenally successful Bad Kitty series, including the CBC Children's Choice Book Award winners Bad Kitty Meets the Baby and Bad Kitty for President. Nick has also written and illustrated popular picture books, including A Wonderful Year.

Description:
"Writing from the Top of Your Head" is a uniquely devised method that takes into account the vulnerability of what it means to be an artist and writer. It combines powerful group creativity coaching with writing exercises that will help artists of all types to loosen up and connect with the source of creativity. This course is for writers who want to generate fresh material, or who feel stuck and struggle with writer’s block, or for those who have always wanted to write but are too afraid to start. Participants will be guided, in a criticism-free environment of support and safety, to “open the tops of their heads” to access their inner voices without censoring or judging. Participants will also benefit from learning invaluable brain-training tools and strategies that will help them move through their creative life with grace and resilience, and attain the freedom on the open page that they've been longing for. For more information about Nina's writing workshops, please see www.writingfromthetopofyourhead.com/writing-workshops/. For more information about the course, or to register, visit the Purple Crayon website: www.purplecrayonavl.com/workshops.
