Another Successful Book Presentation
Beaucoup congratulations to Valerie Augustin-Partin, author of "Mom Me: E-Mail 2 Heaven." She has held another successful presentation at the Morris Park Branch Library, which took place on Saturday, 1/21/17.
Moving on after the lost of a relative who has passed away from diabetes and/or cancer will always be a heavy and scary topic of discussion. Under Valerie's organized and empathetic direction, audience members freely and comfortably shared experiences about their loved ones. True healing takes time but sessions like these, because of Valerie's wealth of knowledge, are a gentle assist. Many stayed pass the scheduled end-time, wanting to hear more. Congrats, again.
IT is an earlier work by Stephen King that guarantees to scare you long pass bedtime. Seven children in Derry, Maine have figured out why there is so much evil and so many deaths in their small town. Through their innocence, they find a way they can combat it. King moves you through thirty years of compelling storylines and characters, which eventually moves the children into adulthood for the fight of their lives. I listened to the Audible edition of this tale, which is almost 45 hours long (the paperback is 1,116 pages). Don’t clown around with this one unless you are willing to carve out a good chunk of your time to enjoy it. The read is worth it.
The 1990 made-for-TV version of the movie captured some of the books scary scenes but fell flat when attempting to clearly define the relationships between the children and their families. There is a theatrical version set to premiere on September 2017. Hopefully, this film will better capture the edgy childhood reflections and the deadlight terror, which are the staple of Stephen King’s IT.
I recently attended a Talk and Q&A at the Morris Park Branch Library. Congratulations to Valerie Auguste Patin for a successful and well-received book event at the Morris Park Branch Library. She effectively reviewed her most recent book, Mom Me: Email 2 Heaven, concerning her dealings with her late mother's suffering and death from cancer and diabetes. In conclusion, Valerie emphasized that everyone (especially older individuals) needs get timely medical examinations in order to ensure good health.
Talk & Q&A
I enjoy the mystery that writing a good story offers. Effective writing has occurred when the reader is forced to quickly look over their shoulder.
