Robert Moss, author of “The Three ‘Only’ Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence & Imagination”, will be at Readers’ Books on Tuesday, October 16th, at 7:30 p.m. He’ll read from the book and discuss how, in everyday circumstances, we get caught up in hurry and stress, in other people’s schedules and expectations, and with our own schedules, often losing touch with the deeper meaning of life.

Moss believes that through dreams, coincidence, and the workings of our imaginations, we can begin to remember that there is a whole other world out there. He argues for dreams’ prophetic capacity—in many indigenous cultures the dream world is more real than waking life. Moss supplies great stories about coincidences and illustrates how to read them. Then he finishes by describing the use of our imagination’s healing imagery. The book is full of practical suggestions for tapping the life-altering potential of the subconscious mind.

Robert Moss is a world authority on dreams, a bestselling novelist, and a former foreign correspondent and professor of ancient history. He is also the author of “Conscious Dreaming.”

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.

Thursday, October 18, 7:30 p.m. *Patricia Hampl*, author of a memoir “The Florist’s Daughter,“ will be at Readers’ Books, 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma./ /For more information, call 707-939-1779.

_Press Release_

Memorist extraordinaire Patricia Hampl will be at Readers’ Books on Thursday, October 18th, at 7:30 p.m. Her new book, “The Florist’s Daughter,” is about the long farewell of her mother’s death. Revisiting her Midwestern girlhood, Hampl describes being the daughter of a debonair Czech father and a mistrustful Irishwoman with an uncanny ability to tell a tale. She traces the course of her role as a daughter from the post-war years past the turbulent 60s.

The book is a tribute to ordinary people and to mid-century Middle America. At the heart of the book is the humble passion of people who went through the Depression working for a better future, not only for themselves and their children, but for the common good. Here is a story both intimate and universal at the same time.

Patricia Hampl is also the author of “Blue Arabesque,” “Virgin Time: In Search of the Contemplative Life,” and ”I Could Tell You Stories.” This is her only Bay Area appearance.

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.
