Timber Hawkeye, Author of Buddhist Boot Camp and Faithfully Religionless

2:In his books, Buddhist Boot Camp and Faithfully Religionless, Timber Hawkeye offers a non-sectarian approach to being at peace with the world, both within and around us. His intention is to awaken, enlighten, enrich, and inspire. Discover the difference between feelings and emotions, the disparity between truths and facts, and the countless benefits of mindful living. When his pursuit of happiness in Corporate America feels counterproductive, Timber Hawkeye escapes the fluorescent-lit hell of his cubicle in Seattle and sets out to fully embrace the stress-free lifestyle of Hawaii. Intrigued and curious about what people believe (and why they believe what they do), he questions everything he ever thought was true and discovers the beauty of letting go. Learn more.

Author and Photographer Ken Conger

2:Join Ken Conger, author and photographer, as he presents a program on his bookWildlife's Greatest Connection: A Mother and Her Young, at the newly renovated Ginter Park Library. Throughout his life, award-winning wildlife photographer Ken Conger has visited dozens of national parks and wildlife refuges, documenting the candid behaviors of wildlife in their natural habitats. Over the course of his long career in wildlife protection and conservation, he’s witnessed thousands of interactions between animals of all species—but no type of interaction has been as memorable as that which occurs between mothers and their offspring. Now, he invites you to share in the experience of these fascinating moments from behind his camera lens. Using photographic techniques perfected over his forty years in the field, Conger has brought together a compilation of stunning images celebrating the diversity of the special bond that forms between mothers and their young across the animal kingdom. This collection, which features more than 100 high-quality, full-color photos, will take you from the jungles of Indonesia to the coasts of Patagonia, from the plains of the Maasai Mara to Conger’s own ‘backyard’ of Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Conger will have books available for purchase and signing at this free event. Light refreshments will be provided.

Richmond Playwrights Forum

2:The Richmond Playwrights Forum meets every 2nd Monday of the month at the Children's Theater at Willow Lawn. Attention potential playwrights: Have you ever wanted to try your hand at the craft of playwriting? Have you written a dialogue or a part of a play and stuffed it in a drawer because you didn’t know if it was any good? RPF provides a safe environment for you to present your work, have it read by actors who will bring your characters to life, and have it critiqued by your peers who know what it’s like to shape a work for the stage. Come see what our group is all about!  We welcome new writers of any age and level of experience! Learn more.
