On Saturday, December 2, from 4 to 6 p.m., Natural Awakenings Long Island (NALI) Publisher Kelly Martinsen will be at Barnes & Noble on Old Country Road, in Carle Place, signing copies of her new book, A Year of Inspired Living—a compilation of essays containing wisdom Martinsen has gleaned through various life events and from people she has interviewed and written articles about for NALI. A Year of Inspired Living is also a guided journaling book that takes the reader through an experience of finding their most inspired self.
“You know we are all publishers,” says Martinsen. “Sure, I publish a magazine, but the truth is I also publish myself. Just like I choose a cover each month and the editorial content, we all choose the clothes we wear, the words we use, the relationships we engage in, etc. We publish ourselves, and it may be nice to use a blueprint, so that when we do, we are publishing our most inspired self. That is the mission of the book—that in a world of fast food, fast pass, fast yoga, we take a moment and slow down to figure out just how we want to publish ourselves.”
The book signing event will also include a presentation on journaling and publishing your most inspired self.
Location: 91 Old Country Rd., Carle Place. For more information or to reserve your copy for the event, call 516-741-9850.
