Derry brings more tales of Merlin from the books “The Crystal Cave” and “The Hollow Hills” by Mary Stewart.

The legend of the dragon under Vortigern’s fortress, the birth of Arthur, and more.

Join us for a taste of these grand books, presented live in voice.

MONDAY, July 18th at 7:00pm: Part I "The Penderwicks at Point Mouette"

The Penderwick sisters’ third adventure brings them back in full entertaining force, despite the absence of their father, who is honeymooning in England, and Rosalind, who’s vacationing with a friend in New Jersey. Birdsall fills the gaps in the family ranks with several new characters that the three remaining sisters meet while on a seaside Maine vacation with good-natured Aunt Claire and their beloved friend, Jeffrey.

With Rosalind away, Skye agonizes over her role as OAP (Oldest Available Penderwick), fretting that she won’t be able “to keep Batty alive and undamaged for two weeks.” Balancing the novel’s comedy is an affecting, neatly crafted subplot that builds up to the emotionally charged revelation involving Jeffrey. From start to finish, this is a summer holiday to savor.

Join Caledonia and the Penderwick Sisters as vacation season REALLY gets rolling.  Presented live in voice.

It is the very good fortune of a few of us to see all the edited shots that Bear Silvershade takes of our sessions, and my difficult task every week to decide which to post.  This week, I am making fewer decisions and posting more shots.  Bless you Bear!  It has been almost a year, I think, that we have had the great good fortune to enjoy you many talents, not the least of which is your keen photographic eye.  BRAVO BEAR!

WEDNESDAY 13 July @ 7pm: Vintage Paranormal with Rosslyn Guardian

Imagine Sherlock Holmes meets the X-Files!


Storyteller Rosslyn Guardian continues a series of short stories written in the early 1900's by Englishwoman Dion Fortune. Ms. Fortune was a Kabbalistic Ritualist who, with her group, did esoteric work to combat the occult workings of Hitler during WW II. Meditating through the blitz in London, she later moved to Glastonbury to continue her work.



Although she wrote mostly nonfiction, she did write a few novels, very dated by today's standards, but her real fiction gem was this book of short stories."Secrets of Dr. Taverner". The character of Dr. Taverner is a Holmesian fellow who runs a residential clinic in the English countryside. With a background in esoterics he deals with cases the establishment couldn't touch.
