Author Talk with Asha J. Watson

Transfer Please: Short Poetic Vignettes About People In Common Places is my first book, which contains twenty-two short vignettes that inspire readers to pay attention to their surrounding. The book is intended to spark a desire to journal. Each story is an open ended writing prompt that allows the reader to write what they think happens next, or what they feel in response to reading it. I host 'one-day book club' events that allow participants to have a dialogue about the content without having to read the book in advance.

The Bounce & The Echo with Author Ian Johnson

The Bounce and The Echo is a heartfelt, honest memoir enriched by the enthralling history of the sport of basketball, from its inception unto its current state. It is the story of a former pro basketball player's attempt to discover himself anew while on a venture to find peace with a game he so desperately wanted to love.

A Braxton Institute Dialogue on Resisting and Thriving- Risk and Ritual

Activists Constance Young and glo merriweather discuss how ritual sustains the transformative practice of risk-taking in liberation movements. Why is ritual necessary and how does it sustain us? How does it make those who resist more whole and redefine our ability to persist through experiences of violence? Speakers share their experiences with risk and ritual, connecting the social justice practice of healing one’s society to the practice of healing the body, mind and soul. Moderated by Richael Faithful, folk healer and activist.

Author Talk with Tara Campbell and Raima Larter

Fearless by Raima Larter (novel)
In a near-future Philadelphia, young priest Mike Albertino, worn down by relentless terrorist bombings and overwhelmed by the needs of his frightened parishioners, encounters a being that, for all the world, appears to be an angel. Doubting his own sanity, he soon thereafter meets Jenna, a woman who is incapable of feeling fear. Are these two inexplicable phenomena the workings of terror on the human mind—or has reality shifted forever? Fearless explores themes of faith, how we know what is real, and the myriad ways people cope—whether faith, science, or denial—in our increasingly fear-filled world.
