IWPA Exhibit Booth at Printers Row Book Fair
Illinois Woman's Press Association will again exhibit at the Writer's Marketplace section of the Printers Row Book Fair. Come share information about IWPA and "talk shop" with aspiring authors.
Stop by the IWPA booth in the Writer's Marketplace section to visit with IWPA's own published authors: Patricia Jana Hassler and Rachel Madorsky.
Patricia Jana Hassler. 1-3 p.m., Sat., June 1 Dear Mom: Remembering Our Mothers. Austin House Press. Dear Mom: Remember Our Mothers, a collection of essays about and letters to the author's mother, is a memoir that will resonate with adult children, especially those who came of age during the '50s and '60s. Elsie Sinkule deferred her dream of teaching to marry, raise two daughters, referee the egos of her husband and her father, keep an immaculate house, foster hobbies and endure 20 years of Parkinson's disease followed by a disastrous stay in a nursing home. While Hassler shares the wisdom born of one woman's 84 years of life, loves, and losses, she also provides guided journaling to help readers share memories of their own dear moms.
1-3 p.m., Sun., June 2 Your Choice! A Healer's Vision on the Metaphysical
Truth Behind Health and Disease (written in the Russian language)
Vybor Za Vami (Your Choice!) is a fascinating look into the mind and practices of a rare individual--a natural healer who has taken up the lonely task of understanding and using her gifts for the good of those who find their way to her practice. It is a valuable one-of-a-kind look at a work-in-progress, the evolving knowledge and beliefs of a natural practitioner of an ancient healing tradition.
Written in easy-to-understand terms, the book helps the reader learn quickly of the vast positive energy and power existing within each of us. This documentation of a spiritual pilgrimage will appeal not only to individuals who may be searching for knowledge of the energies and natural laws throughout the universe, but also to those who may be suffering from cancer. The author provides an opportunity to gain the necessary self-knowledge for self-healing. ISBN 0-9705349-1-4.
