Sunday, October 22 "Slave No More"
author Judy Wolfman
Born into slavery in 1815, Henry Brown escaped to freedom by arranging to have himself mailed from Virginia to Philadelphia in a wooden crate-3 ft. x 2½ ft., x 2 ft.-after 33 years of slavery. The trip took 27 hours during which he endured discomfort and pain. Henry became a noted abolitionist speaker and later a showman, and writer of his own autobiographical narrative, published in 1849 in Boston, which provided the core for Judy's book.
Judy Wolfman, retired elementary teacher, authored the Life on a Farm series; 40 scripted folktales and legends in How and Why Stories for Readers' Theatre; two historical fictions-Not My Time, the true story of a Holocaust survivor; The Long Escape! about Chinese immigrants smuggled to America in 1992; nine children's plays, and many magazine stories, articles and poems. She is a professional storyteller, public speaker, and conducts workshops on writing and storytelling. This will be Judy's second time with us.

You Can't Have A Light without A Dark To Stick It In
How often do we go through life wishing to cherry pick our experiences in an effort to create the perfect life? Yet life happens, filled with joys and delight but also struggle, pain and heartbreak. Today we will explore what it means to embrace the All-ness of life and consider what the true essence of our situation may really be.
