My beloved child, break your heart no longer.
Each time you judge yourself, you break your own heart.  
You stop feeding on the love, which is the wellspring 
of your vitality.  
The time has come. Your time. To live. To celebrate, 
and to see the goodness that you are… 
Do not fight the dark. Just turn on the light.  
Let go, and breathe into the goodness that you are. 
                                                                               – Swami Kripalu

Writers Series with Local Author Beatrice Gormley

Date: October 23, 2018
Time: 6:00 pm  to  8:00 pm

On Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 6:00pm, Partners Village Store and Kitchen is thrilled to welcome local author Beatrice Gormley to celebrate the release of her latest book John McCain: An American Hero on the book’s publication day!

Please join us at the store at 6:00pm for this engaging and timely discussion – all ages welcome!

Learn all about the life of Senator John McCain in this enlightening biography specially written for younger audiences.

Five-term Arizona senator John S. McCain’s indelible mark on America was perhaps his destiny, as his grandfather proclaimed when he was just an infant, “This boy has the stamp of nobility on his brow.”

Following both his four-star US Navy father and grandfather into military service, McCain’s naval career imprinted the code of honor he has maintained to this day. Throughout the myriad life and death perils he faced—most notably being held captive as a Vietnam War prisoner of war for five and one half years in the Hoa Lo Prison or ‘Hanoi Hilton’—his courage, bravery, and tenacity has served him time and time again: as Navy liaison to the US Senate, as a member (and then chairman) on the Armed Services Committee, Commerce Committee, and Indian Affairs Committee, playing a key role in restoring diplomatic relations with Vietnam, championing finance reform by sponsoring the McCain-Feingold Act, and as the Republican nominee for president in 2008.

Beatrice Gormley’s enriching biography tells the riveting story of one of America’s last, great, enduring heroes.

Beatrice Gormley has written a number of books for young readers, including several titles in the History’s All-Stars series, as well as biographies of Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Laura Bush, and John McCain. She lives in Westport, Massachusetts.

Please join us on Tuesday, October 23rd at 6:00pm to meet Beatrice Gormley and learn more about John McCain and his enduring legacy. To reserve your spot for this event please call (508) 636-2572 or email [email protected]

Writers Series with author David Mahood

Date: October 25, 2018
Time: 6:00 pm  to  8:00 pm

On Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 6:00pm, Partners Village Store and Kitchen is pleased to welcome David Mahood as a part of our Fall Writers Series, to celebrate the release of One Green Deed Spawns Another: Tales of Inspiration on the Quest for Sustainability.

Please join us at the store at 6:00pm on the 25th for this engaging and timely discussion. To reserve your spot for this event please call (508) 636-2572 or email [email protected]

In 2002, Mahood was giving a talk about sustainable furnishings and the impact of products on the environment and finished the opening statement with the line “One green deed spawns another.” It was meant to get the audience more broadly engaged in the welfare of our environment; the thought that a single effort might compel someone else to act seemed so simple.

For thirteen years, Mahood has closed many other talks with those same five words. If you polled 100 people about whether they wanted to preserve the planet for future generations, you’d get almost unanimously positive replies. Yet, here we are facing an ecological crisis without a united effort to combat it.

Green deeds are being enacted minute by minute, daily, annually, and for lifetimes. Not only do we not get to witness all of them, we rarely get to hear about them. In answer to this, Mahood decided to query some of his heroes who had inspired him over the years with their wisdom and commitment to greening our planet — their one green deed.

Sharing green deeds is not only inspiring, it is unifying; perhaps within this collection of engaging ideas are answers for the road ahead.

This book is twofold in origin: the unusual path Mahood followed to become environmentally active brought him in contact with some exceptional individuals. Some are well-known as celebrities; others have flown under the radar. All of them have equally distinctive stories that have inspired him and continue to influence his philosophy on our relationship to our habitat and fellow species.

One Green Deed Spawns Another is a compilation of these poignant moments with Mahood’s environmental heroes and friends and their insightful ideas, and a tribute to the spirit of Earth’s active stewards.

David C. Mahood is a sustainability consultant, environmental writer and poet.  He holds a BA from the College of Wooster, and an MBA in Sustainability from San Francisco Institute of Architecture.  His articles have appeared in numerous publications including Interiors and Sources, International Ecotourism Society, The Environmental Blog, NEWH Magazine and Living Green Magazine.  His poetry credits include Writer’s Cramp, Fifth Street Review, and Prick of the Spindle.  He attributes his environmental epiphany to a desperate act of consciousness back in 1998.  David spends most of his time in Massachusetts.
