Author Signing: Carla Blacker, Salt in the Wound and the Courage to Forgive

Saturday, July 15, 2017 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Join me on a journey ~ a journey of remembrance and of forgiveness. Envision deliberately letting go of regurgitated memories of past negative experiences and low emotional responses to them and transforming life into streams of contentment, abundance and worthiness. Experience exhaling in peace releasing the self-inflicted grip of clouded thoughts and fearful emotional paradigms. Inhale a deeply soul soothing clarity and knowing. Empowerment. Soul level leadership and perspective. My passion and mission to share a unique message through the awareness of alignment through forgiveness and reclaiming the desire to express the unique Soul level self is powered fully by inner courage, dignity and strength. It is time to unveil a breathtakingly beautiful being that will create a balance of personal symmetry that reflects love, gratitude, honor and acceptance. It is time to reveal the significance of authenticity and share peaceful, compatible relationships with one another.



Author Reading and Talk: Julie Buntin, Marlena

Saturday, July 15, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Everything about fifteen-year-old Cat’s new town in rural Michigan is lonely and off-kilter, until she meets her neighbor, the manic, beautiful, pill-popping Marlena. Cat, inexperienced and desperate for connection, is quickly lured into Marlena’s orbit by little more than an arched eyebrow and a shake of white-blond hair. As the two girls turn the untamed landscape of their desolate small town into a kind of playground, Cat catalogues a litany of firsts―first drink, first cigarette, first kiss―while Marlena’s habits harden and calcify. Within the year, Marlena is dead, drowned in six inches of icy water in the woods nearby. Now, decades later, when a ghost from that pivotal year surfaces unexpectedly, Cat must try to forgive herself and move on, even as the memory of Marlena keeps her tangled in the past.
