Dawson Church, author of “The Genie in Your Genes,” will be at Readers’ Books on Tuesday, June 19^th , at 7:30 p.m., to discuss self-healing mechanisms now emerging from the science of Epigenetics.

Although genes are responsible for much of our predisposition to certain diseases, recent research is showing that even intangibles like beliefs and attitudes affect the internal environment determining longevity and health. Church examines the therapies that are currently taking advantage of this research to find out which attitudes correlate with increased health and life span. Some of the candidates are beliefs, prayer, religious faith, social networks, charitable acts. He suggests that in the future a doctor might prescribe a prayer for certain conditions before prescribing drugs or surgery.

Dawson Church founded the nonprofit Soul Medicine Institute to research and teach psychological and medical techniques that can reshape 21^st century medicine. He has edited or authored over 200 books in the fields of health, psychology, and spirituality. He has worked with Robert Kiyosaki, Deepak Chopra, John Gray, Mary Catherine Bateson, Bernie Siegel, and Caroline Myss among others. He was recently honored by the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology for making the most outstanding contribution to the health field.

Local author Mary Lou Peters Schram, will be at Readers’ Books on Thursday, June 21^st , at 7:30 p.m., to read from her new novel “Taddy and Her Husbands.”

What is a woman to do who can’t earn her own living? She marries. And marries again. In “Taddy and Her Husbands,” a young woman runs from the poverty of West Virginia to fabled San Francisco in the seminal year of 1968. Through three marriages to wealthy men, Taddy tries to change to suit her husbands but is never happy. She isn’t rich, either. She is unable to hold onto the money she inherits. At 50, she is broke again and looking for a fourth husband. Will she ever come of age? Schram has some answers to that question and they are not what you might expect.

Mary Lou Peters Schram is the author of ”KLIK,” a novel about a San Francisco radio station in the early days of the women’s movement. She worked in public relations and advertising in San Francisco for 15 years and has lived in Sonoma since 1998.

Julia Flynn Siler, author of “The House of Mondavi: The Rise and Fall of an American Wine Dynasty,” will be at Readers’ Books on Saturday, June 23^rd , at 4:30 p.m., to reveal the genius, feuds, triumphs, and hubris behind a famous wine family.

Refreshments will be served.

The Mondavis were the Kennedys of American wine—arising from a hardscrabble past to unimaginable wealth and influence. First generation Robert Mondavi, an untiring promoter of Napa Valley wine, became the patriarch of an entire industry. But in the wake of his success the family suffered from numerous tragedies.. Robert’s sons, Michael and Timothy, quarreled, and when Michael’s efforts to extend the company failed, the independent board of directors fired him, leading to the forced sale of the company. This is the scrupulously researched story of a family’s rise and fall.

Siler is a San Francisco-based correspondent for the “Wall Street Journal.” She was formerly based in London for the Journal where she also wrote for “Business Week” and “The New York Times.” She has an M.B.A.from Northwestern University and a master’s degree from Columbia. She lives in Northern California.

Readers’ Books is at 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 707-939-1779.
