Join us for our first Second Sunday in the Bookstore in our new shop on King Street! We will host the fabulous Megan Griswold as she discusses her newest release, THE BOOK OF HELP: A MEMOIR IN REMEDIES. This event will be structured as a drop in, so stop by while you are out and about for Second Sunday! Meet the author and grab a signed copy (they make great Mother’s Day gifts), we will also have face painting for the kids!


When Megan Griswold’s newly wedded husband calls in the middle of the night to say that he’s landed in jail, Megan must accept that her many certificates, degrees and licenses had not been the finish line she’d once imagined, but instead the training for what would prove to be the wildest, most growth-insisting journey of her life. Documenting the trial of over 290 self-help therapies, The Book of Help is a heartbreakingly vulnerable and tragically funny memoir-in-remedies tracing one woman’s 6 continent, worldwide quest for self-healing and peace of mind.

Megan holds a Bachelor's from Columbia University, a Masters in International Relations from Yale and a licentiate from the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture. She has worked as a mountain instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School, an NPR 'All Things Considered' commentator and a classical acupuncturist in private practice. She's a trained doula, Zero Balancer, NIA instructor, NCCAOM acupuncturist, Wilderness First Responder, shiatsu practitioner, NASM personal trainer and has completed advanced yoga teacher trainings with Richard Freeman. 
She resides in a yurt in Wyoming.

“In a world full of spiritual seekers, Megan Griswold is an undisputed All-Star. She has spent her life examining her existence in patient, courageous, and microscopic detail, and now she has written about her search with tender and comic honesty. What a delightful journey!” - ELIZABETH GILBERT, #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF BIG MAGIC AND EAT, PRAY, LOVE
