Opening Day: Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who came out on Opening Day and made it a wonderful start to our new adventure!  As those of you who were there know, it was a busy but exciting day.  We enjoyed face painting, di'lishi frozen yogurt, a visit from local author, Parker Broaddus, and visits from local young artists and winners of the NC Young Authors Contest who autographed their contributions to the store copy of the NCRA Anthology.



Visiting Author Events
Morganton author, P. S. Broaddus, will be at the store on Friday, July 13th from 10am until noon.  Broaddus is the author of A Hero's Curse and Nightrage Rising.  He will speak to audience members about his writing journey and then autograph copies of his book.  We still have a few publisher exclusive copies on the shelf that you can pick up ahead of time and have him personalize.  Both books are middle grades novels and feature a unique hero.  Youth and adults will enjoy hearing Broaddus speak, whether you've enjoyed reading his book or are interested in hearing more about his writing journey as you embark on your own, it will be an exciting event.  

Valdese native, and self-published author, Austin Helms joins us July 14th at 5:30pm.  Known as a dynamic speaker, Helms will share his writing and self-publication journey with the audience as well as sign copies of his book.  Pick up a copy of his book in store before the event, have it personalized, and gift it to a recent high school graduate headed to college this fall.  Helms's book is packed full of tips and things to remember that he gleaned from his own college experience at UNC Chapel Hill.  

Join us on July 20th at 5pm as we welcome Dr. Natalie Spencer, Licensed Professional Counselor and Counselor Educator as she shares her workbook titled "Mindful Practices for Helping Troubled Teens".

If you are a middle school or high school counselor, or community/agency-based mental health practitioner (counselor, social worker, human services professional, psychologist) working with teens, then this will be an event you won't want to miss! Dr. Spencer will discuss her book and her writing and publication journey.  She'll have copies for available for purchase and autographing.  These will also make great resources for new counselors and interns you may have joining your team.

ABOUT THE BOOK: The workbook curriculum provides 20 activity-based lessons that combine mindfulness and cognitive behavioral approaches. These can be used flexibly in small groups or with individual students. Techniques are taught to help teens with issues such as self-harm, grief/loss, anger, anxiety, impulse control, decision making, and bouncing back.
