After twenty-five readers responded to our Hearth Book Club Survey, we learned that the Hearth Community is evenly interested in fiction and non-fiction books about creativity, communication, individuality versus community, and vulnerability.

Based on your interests and suggestions, Hearth Ember Amy Beth Harrison and Board Member Nina Earley came up with books to read from January through June of 2017.

Take a look, buy a book (from your local bookstore), and join us for a book club discussion that actually talks about books every fourth Wednesday from 7:00-8:30 at Arts at the Armory.

June 2017: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert
Hearth Book Club Discussion on June 28 at 7:00 pm

Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the strange jewels that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.
