  • Virtual Book Launch and Discussion

    Tuesday, August 03 at 7:00 pm

    Join us as we welcome Burlington native, Vicki Cody to our Zoom stage for a discussion and celebration of her new book Fly Safe: Letters from the Gulf War and Reflections from Back Home.

    “In Vicki Cody’s Fly Safe, her moving follow-up to her first memoir, Army Wife, she delivers a tour de force full of emotion, determination, grit, and hope, something our country needs now more than ever. Vicki’s engrossing writing style takes us inside her world of handling critical roles as army wife, mom, family readiness group leader, and friend to so many as her husband famously fired the first shots of the Gulf War.”—Anthony J. Tata, Brigadier General, U.S. Army (Retired) and national best-selling author of Chasing the Lion

    It is August 1990, and Iraq has just invaded Kuwait, setting off a chain reaction of events leading up to the first Gulf War. Vicki Cody's husband, the commander of an elite Apache helicopter battalion, is deployed to Saudi Arabia--and for the next nine months they have to rely on written letters in order to stay connected....

  • A Virtual Book Discussion

    Thursday, August 12 at 7:00 pm

    Join us as we welcome Gerette Buglion for a discussion of her new book An Everyday Culta personal memoir and a wake-up call for society to recognize and reject the erosion of critical thinking. 

    Tracing the arc of eighteen years under a trusted teacher's unethical tutelage, Gerette Buglion's true-life story shows how her innocent quest for meaning is answered by a man who sees directly into her soul, awakening insight while simultaneously eroding her capacity for critical thinking. Through an increasingly murky and treacherous narrative, she lays bare the hallmarks of cultic manipulation-mind control that flies under the radar of human awareness-and implores society to wake up to its ever-present abuses of power.

    An Everyday Cult imparts a universal story, demonstrating how recognition of cultic membership-largely riddled with preconceived notions-may be an essential key to human evolution; an essential read for understanding how people fall prey to mind control and cultic manipulation. 

    Gerette Buglion was born on Long Island, New York, where...

    Baked to Perfection begins with a thorough look at the gluten-free baking basics: how different gluten-free flours behave, which store-bought blends work best, and how to mix your own to suit your needs.
