Tentatively Scheduled for 9:05am will be Author Katie Mahon to discus, "The Miracle Collectors'

This eye-opening book will teach you how to step back, examine important moments in your life, and recognize the miracles that are constantly occurring all around you. As part of their own spiritual quest, miracle experts, Katie Mahon and Joan Luise Hill, discovered that when we are truly awake and present, miracles abound. It started by sharing their own stories which quickly prompted an unexpected outpouring of stories from others. Stories that had never been told, stories that didn't seem to matter, and stories that had been forgotten. While some defy explanation, others invite us to take a closer look, to discover common ground with each other, and to seek meaning in a whole new way. The stories of courage, forgiveness, gratitude, faith, hope, and love from The Miracle Collectors, allow us to notice and appreciate the miracles that are available to each one of us, while opening us up to a part of the Divine mystery we can absorb and understand. By using Take a Miracle Moment challenge at the end of every chapter you open the path for your own reawakening of the spirit. Perhaps you too will become a miracle collector.  

At 9:40am a Local Poet will read a very Virus poem he just wrote.

Snowy the Snowman

By: Damien A. Lima

In the town of Ameaca, nestled in a corner of the North Pole, snowmen marry snowwomen; they start families, and live happily ever after. This is Snowy's dream, too. But for a long time, the good but traditional-minded snow people of Ameaca made Snowy feel that was impossible: snowmen marry snowwomen, not snowmen.

Barrington Books, Garden City , Cranston, RI to close.

 Posted by Wayne G. Barber 

Owners of the two Barrington Books in Rhode Island, the very popular store in Cranston’s Garden City Center and their flagship store in Barrington, have decided to close their Cranston store. In an email to customers, they said:

“2020. That’s all we have to say to invoke thoughts of challenge, uncertainty, determination and resilience. This past year has presented us with a lot of life lessons. It has shown us what’s broken about our world, our global community and our economy. But it has also revealed some beautiful things: the support from local community, the humanity shown to neighbors during difficult times, and the importance of resilience and adaptability for small businesses. 

What this past year has shown us is that our customers, near and far, have come to expect a certain level of service and product availability, a special sauce of familiarity and attention, no matter how or where it originates. With an incredible effort to grow our online presence and with Rhode Island being so accessible, we have come to the conclusion that less is, in fact, more.

We no longer sense a need for two locations to tell our story to generations to come. To that end, we have been tirelessly planning the ultimate pivot: we have decided not to renew our lease in Garden City and we will be unveiling a completely rejuvenated and enhanced shopping experience in our Barrington location in the weeks to come. 

The physical, emotional and financial toll of running two locations during this time of extraordinary strain will last for years to come. Despite that, we are energized by all we’ve learned and we are excited to share it with our team, our customers, friends and neighbors in the form of a total renovation, enhanced culture, streamlined product mix and commitment to social values within our community.

What will not change is the level of service we are known for, our lively events and our partnerships with school systems across the state. This is truly a consolidation and growth project and, to that end, all of our employees who wish to remain will stay on and be a part of this exciting rebirth. We cannot wait to share the next chapter in Barrington Books’ story –  coming to you in early Spring 2021.

We thank you for your unwavering support and we appreciate your patience during the next few months of construction and unveiling. We are grateful that we get to share our vision and commitment with all of you. Here’s to another 35 years.”

Ken Hopkins, Mayor of Cranston, was reached for comment. Hopkins said, “”That is too bad. I love that place. My favorite place to buy books and I do read every day. This COVID is taking its toll on our small businesses.  ”Source:

Available on podcast now at

True Starlight is a true heroine’s journey about a woman who, despite her painful past, decides to rise above the shadows of darkness and transforms herself into a True Star.

True Starlight is a strong, spiritual, and inspirational memoir. Ebba P. Karlsson shares her exciting and adventurous journey through life, where she finds her own empowerment and inner voice. She shares what she learned on the road—from growing up in a chaotic environment to sexual abuse as a model in Paris to living a glamorous life in Monaco while being on tour with her husband, professional golfer Robert Karlsson.

Ebba’s quest for truth led her down a winding road of self-exploration and discovery of her true self. In True Starlight, she intensely shares what she learned about the mysteries of life through discovering deep spiritual secrets of knowledge and wisdom. It is the ultimate heroine's journey of how she came to turn her life around from living in the shadows of her celebrity husband. By doing intense work on herself, such as exploring personal leadership, intentional community, team building, self-development, sacred sexuality, marriage, parenting, world travelling, pro sport and dance, she not only saved her marriage but discovered what it means to be a True Star.

Author Line-Up for 1-12-21

At 9:35 am
A compilation of essays, poems and letters written over the last few decades and woven together in a narrative that tells the story of a baby boomer's lifetime. This book was written as a labor of love, detailing a wonderful journey through our often tumultuous times. The book begins with some family historical backround and continues along the march of time from the 'wild eyed wonder' of youth, 'coming of age', in the 70's and 80's, living the 'American dream', family life, 'loss and sorrows', 'love and romance', all the way to the present day perspective of a life lived well and full. The book reflects one man's values and details how they came to be, and where they have led him. In it, I hope others can find moments, emotions and memories with which to identify along with perhaps an understanding that there has always been much more to our lives than meets the eye.
