BOOK CLUB MEETING:
RAINBOW READERS OF MASSACHUSETTS

Local activist Sarah Slocum hosts a monthly book club dedicated to reading all things queer and LGBTQIA, with the intention of exploring in literature all sexualities and identities in both fiction, nonfiction and all the subgenres in between.

RRM's goal is to come together in a safe and intimate setting to discuss books and our love for the genre.

This month's selection is TRANS LIBERTY RIOT BRIGADE, a dystopian novel by L. M. Pierce, and is available for purchase in person or via mail order at Annie's Book Stop of Worcester.

Please RSVP on the Rainbow Readers Facebook page.

 

 


SUNDAY, AUGUST 12TH AT 1PM

BOOK TALK AND SIGIL-MAKING

Join us for a relaxing afternoon with J.C Artemisia.pantheistic Pagan parent and author.

She will be reading from and signing her newest book LOOK TO THE MOON. In addition, she will also lead a child-friendly sigil making workshop. She will review some handy runes and symbols for broad-intention sigil crafting, and will demonstrate how to create a sigil for more specific intentions and/or blessings. Handouts and materials will be provided.

Sigils are magickal drawings. The act of drawing is energy transfer, creating a point of magick on a paper, charm, or other object. Sigil making is a wonderful way to focus and strengthen intentions. Children are natural creators. Since everything is new to them, they have the benefit of seeing endless possibility. Drawing sigils onto small scrolls or charms allows them to infuse their energy into careful, intentional creation. These help kids and adults better handle conflict and difficult situations, and live fuller lives.
