Beth’s Book Signings and Conversations

Beth’s newest book, Uncharted Journey: On the Challenges of Getting Older and Other Transitions, is now available

The Christmas Strawberry and Other Stories is a collection of stories and poems that reflects on the inherent contrasts of Advent and Christmas: joy and sorrow, traditions and just getting through, religious emphases and secular aspects, loneliness and love, wealth and poverty. Some people live more on one side than the other but in reaching out, all our lives are enriched.

School personnel find that Understanding Poverty in the Classroom is a great book to read and discuss together.

Several women’s groups have used Conversations on the Porch or More Conversations on the Porch for their year long study and discussion. Sunday School classes and missions committees have used Loving Our Neighbor a as part of their working together.

Buncombe Street UMC uses Angelika’s Journal with their Sprouts group (4th and 5th graders.) Here’s what their leader, Gayle Quay said about the experience:  “Just wanted you to know that the Sprouts are loving your book. We are using it during Covenant time doing a week at a time. The leaders said they really related to it Sunday night which was our first night. Thanks for the suggestion, I’m so excited to find something they can relate to.” School personnel and church study groups have also found this book easy to relate to and impactful in their learning about homelessness and poverty.

All books are available online and at  Fiction Addiction behind Haywood Mall.

A Coat Named Mr. Spot and Angelika’s Journal are available at avenidabooks.com.

Refrigerator Prayers for Ordinary People is available at https://www.createspace.com/4906363
