Barbara Mahany Presents “The Stillness of Winter”

Community Event

On Tuesday, November 17th at 6:30 PM, The Book Stall is pleased to welcome Barbara Mahany for an online Crowdcast program, where she’ll be sharing her new book, The Stillness of Winter: Sacred Blessings of the Season. This non-denominational spiritual guide encourages readers to experience the winter world around them with joy and curiosity. Register for this free event at

Like it or not, winter is on the way, and with The Stillness of Winter, Mahany offers a book to help us embrace the season instead of making it a nemesis. She says of her new work, “Consider this a field guide to wonder, certainly, and wisdom, perhaps. It borrows, in spirit, from the almanac, the scrapbook, scribbled field notes, assorted jottings, and, on occasion, the banged-up recipe file that’s tucked on my kitchen shelf. It’s a book I hope you come to know as something of a friend, a gentle-souled companion you might choose to cozy up with.”

It’s also, we might add, the perfect gift to give this holiday season!
