Gaia's Garden is honored to support local authors. We display and sell signed copies of books which appeal to a range of interests - fiction, non-fiction, technical, memoirs, fantasy, children's books, etc. The collection is organized and distributed by Jeane Slone, whose books "She Flew Bombers" and "She Built Ships" are available at Gaia's Garden. Purchases are cash only, please.
Once a month, we offer "Dine With the Authors Night." Five or six different authors attend for conversation over a meal, then each
reads briefly (5 minutes). In this salon setting, you can find out more
about a specific writer and his or her process and become inspired by
the cumulative creativity of the group. Reservations are suggested, and
you may request a specific author's table if you wish.
The next Authors
Night will be June 13, from 6-8:30 p.m. This is a very special event, featuring Lillian Judd and her son, Dennis Judd. They are authors of "From Nightmare to Freedom - Healing After the Holocaust." Lillian, now in her 80's, was a prisoner at Auschwitz. She documents the horrendous suffering which she endured and how she found forgiveness and healing. Her son, Dennis, shares his experiences as a child of a Holocaust survivor. Inspiring and riveting, Lillian's story includes graphic and horrific events. Please understand this before you attend, and do not bring children.
Please join us for dinner prior to their talk. As with all of our events, a $4 minimum per person applies.
