Penelope Jean Hayes: The Magic of Viral Energy: An Ancient Key to Happiness, Empowerment, and Purpose

TEMPE | 7PM FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21

Book Cover
Penelope Jean Hayes presents her book The Magic of Viral Energy and hosts a discussion about contagious energy and how to utilize this phenomenon for your best life.

While meditating in 2007, Hayes experienced the contagious nature of energy and a phenomenon she calls “osmotic-energy-balancing.” Over the next decade, she intuited “viral energy” and a system of creation involving seven levels of energy ascending from dense and heavy upward to enlightenment. At this presentation, she'll also offer a sneak peek of her upcoming series Do Unto Earth, which deals with our environmental crisis and more. More »

Diane Rehm: When My Time Comes: Conversations About Whether Those Who Are Dying Should Have the Right to Determine When Life Should End

OFFSITE | 2PM SUNDAY, MARCH 1

Book Cover
Bestselling author and renowned radio host Diane Rehm presents her latest, a book of candor and compassion, addressing the urgent, hotly contested cause of the Right-to-Die movement, of which she is one of our most inspiring champions.

Through interviews with terminally ill patients, and with physicians, ethicists, spouses, relatives, and representatives of those who vigorously oppose the movement, Rehm gives voice to a broad range of people who are personally linked to the realities of medical aid in dying. The book presents the fervent arguments--both for and against--that are propelling the current debates across the nation about whether to adopt laws allowing those who are dying to put an end to their suffering. With characteristic even-handedness, Rehm skillfully shows both sides of the argument, providing the full context for this highly divisive issue. With a highly personal foreword by John Grisham, When My Time Comes is a response to many misconceptions and misrepresentations of end-of-life care; it is a call to action--and to conscience--and it is an attempt to heal and soothe our hearts, reminding us that death, too, is an integral part of life.

Ann Charlotte Valentin: Med School after Menopause: The Journey of My Soul

TEMPE | 7PM WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26


Book Cover
Ann Charlotte Valentin, N.M.D., shares her story about transformation, healing, and spirituality.
 

An inspirational story about transformation, healing, and spirituality.

By sharing her own journey and paranormal experiences through life, Dr. Valentin inspires the reader to find their Divine Feminine, intuitive powers and soul's purpose.

"I knew I was dying. The first thing I noticed was that I was still alive. I was still there, just outside my body "

This was the reaction of Dr. Valentin as she came close to death in the ER in 1992. She then developed a serious blood disorder and walked a fine line between life and death for several years. Two years later as she struggled to heal, she again left her body, which resulted in a spiritual transformation and activated her life path. As a result of these experiences, she became clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient.

Dr. Valentin shows the reader that it is never too late to transform one's life path. She inspires her audience to become the person they were born to be by moving from their mind to their heart. Exercises throughout the book support her messages and can easily be incorporated into your daily life. This book will take you on a journey that will help you create peace and happiness in your mind, heart, and soul. More »

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24
6-7:30pm | PHOENIX | WRITE HERE, WRITE NOW | "THREE WAYS TO THINK ABOUT PLOT" | Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing. Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group. Tonight, Suyi Okungbowa, author of the forthcoming novel David Mogo, Godhunter continues the series with "Three Ways To Think About Plot." From the presenter: "You might have heard people refer to some of your beloved stories as 'plot-heavy' or even 'plot-less,' while you're over here wondering what in the world 'plot' even is, and how to make your story have one (that works). In this workshop, we’ll explore new ways to think about plot. First in relation to character goals as cycles of trying and failing, acceptance and rejection, and cause and effect. Then, we’ll create our own plots or micro-stories in five minutes and rewrite them using each of these techniques. Finally, we’ll discuss how these exercises can be adapted for novellas, novels, and other longer works. By the end of the workshop, you'll leave with concrete ideas and actionable strategies for tackling plot in your stories." More »

7pm | PHOENIX | FIRST DRAFT BOOK CLUB | CATCH AND KILL | Join us at First Draft Book Bar (the wine and beer bar inside Changing Hands Phoenix) for a discussion of this month's pick, Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Ronan Farrow. In 2017, a routine network television investigation led Farrow to a story only whispered about: one of Hollywood's most powerful producers was a predator, protected by fear, wealth, and a conspiracy of silence. As Farrow drew closer to the truth, shadowy operatives, from high-priced lawyers to elite war-hardened spies, mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threatening his career, following his every move, and weaponizing an account of abuse in his own family. All the while, Farrow and his producer faced a degree of resistance they could not explain—until now. This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability, and silence victims of abuse. And it's the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth and spark a global movement. Stop by either Changing Hands location or order online to get your copy of Catch and Kill for 20% off, then meet us and USA Today Books Editor Barbara VanDenburgh at First Draft Book Bar at 7pm to discuss and enjoy happy hour prices during the event.

Real Life

by Brandon Taylor | Hardcover, $26.00 »

The Night Masquerade Brandon Taylor is a force to be reckoned with. His debut novel Real Life is unforgettable. It will blow your mind and leave you shook. Set in a Midwestern university town, you meet Wallace, the only African American in his department and the only person of color in his tight but forced friend group. Taylor tackles the quiet, more insidious aspects of race, gender and sexuality that come in to play on a day-to-day basis that will leave you breathless. Read Real Life. You'll underline nearly every sentence. It's that good.  —Michelle
