Parenting with Sanity and Joy with Author Sue Groner, moderated by Margaret Ables, Co-Host of the Podcast What Fresh Hell: Laughing in the Face of Motherhood – Monday, October 5, 7pm
The perfect parenting book for parents who don’t have time to read parenting books! Nationally renowned parenting expert and mentor Sue Groner, mother of two adult children and Founder of The Parenting Mentor – the ultimate ally to parents on their journey to raise confident and resilient children – and the CLEARR™ method of parenting, is releasing her new book Parenting with Sanity and Joy: 101 Simple Strategies. Sue, otherwise known as the “The Parenting Mentor” after the company she founded, wrote Parenting with Sanity and Joy to provide clear, easy instructions about how to handle yourself as a parent without sucking the joy out of the parenting journey – a lesson she learned the hard way after second-guessing every parenting decision she made as a young mother.
Knowing that most parents have trouble finding precious moments of “me” time in a typical day, Sue designed Parenting with Sanity and Joy to be an easy-to-read, pick-up-every-now-and-then guide that may help parents look at their parenting style in a different light. The book offers practical, actionable tips that can help parents improve their approach while helping their children feel safe, loved, and to grow up to be confident, capable, caring adults. In the book, she outlines simple tips that are meant to help parents relax and find more enjoyment on the route to raising resilient, self-sufficient young adults – in the uncertainty of recent events and beyond.

Goodnight Beautiful with Author Aimee Molloy, moderated by Elisabeth Weed – October 19th 7:30pm
Join renowned author Aimee Molloy for a conversation and Q&A on her recent book – Goodnight Beautiful
A handsome psychotherapist. His lonely wife. And in his home office, a ceiling vent …
You’d listen too, wouldn’t you?
Aimee Molloy’s first novel, The Perfect Mother, was an “electrifying thriller” (People, Book of the Week) that debuted at #5 on the New York Times bestseller list the week it went on sale. Marie Claire called it, “a desperate, thrilling mystery that you’ll think you have all figured out – until you realize you don’t” and a film adaptation is in the works with Kerry Washington set to produce and star. GOODNIGHT BEAUTIFUL (Harper; October 13, 2020; $27.99), Molloy’s tantalizing follow-up novel, is another diabolically conceived story of deceit and psychological suspense that confirms this rising author’s status as a “master of clever misdirection” (Kirkus Reviews).
Golden boy and reformed heartbreaker Sam Statler is looking forward to returning to his hometown in upstate New York with his clever new wife, Annie. They’ve bought the house of their dreams and Sam, a therapist, is finally opening his own practice, tending to the egos of his (mostly female) clientele. Sensitive, curious, with a dimple to die for, Sam is a changed man—nothing like his no-good father, who left his own wife for a Talbots catalogue model.
From the outside, Sam and Annie are building a picture-perfect life. But when Sam disappears, and his secrets are exposed—including a mountain of debt he hid from Annie—everyone assumes he’s following in his father’s footsteps.
Of course, assumptions being what they are, the truth is far more complex—and shocking. Like The Perfect Mother, GOODNIGHT BEAUTIFUL is poised to be the next big read for fans of smart, sophisticated psychological thrillers. It has already been optioned for a movie adaptation by the team behind The Girl on the Train.
