So What Are The Guys Doing? Book Celebration Event with Panel on The Importance of Friends.

The evening will include dessert, light refreshments, and discussion and readings by several community figures. There will be a cash bar, as well as a book sale and signing after the readings. The topic of discussion will be The Importance of Friends.

So What are the Guys Doing? by David Figura is a thought-provoking read and the type of book that will spark conversation as readers reflect on a wide range of subjects from marriage and career, to sex and religion. Figura offers us the male perspective on some of life’s toughest questions.

Like many, David Figura reflected and took stock of his life when he felt at an existential impasse. His experience, and the truths he uncovered during his search, prompted him to write this book confident it would reach readers who could relate.

We Are the Best! is a story of three young misfit girls growing up in the early ‘80s Stockholm. Pixieish, mohawk-sporting Klara and her best friend Bobo are 13-year-old rebels looking for a cause. Despite having no instruments-or discernible musical talent-the two put all their energy into forming an all-girl punk band, recruiting their shy, classical guitar-playing schoolmate Hedwig as a third wheel. With tender affection for its young characters, We Are the Best! paints a joyous and sharply observant portrait of the rebellious spirit of youth and growing up different.

Dec. 20th – Bob Sima Concert – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  When Bob Sima opens his mouth to sing what comes out is far beyond the human sounds of a warm and soulful voice. Beyond the songs, beyond the voice, beyond the stories. Yes…there’s more. A lesson, a nudge, a reminder, of the simple splendor of this place and these experiences we all share. The unique beauty is his presentation of these ancient messages – the conversations he has with the master teachers of the universe – in music that lives and breathes across generations. Bob has been called “Eckhart Tolle with a guitar” and his music truly heals and expands the heart. What draws you in is his ability to share these insights in a way that grabs your listening ear, inspires your beating heart, awakens your inner spirit, and transforms your most intimate desires. He is a poet, observer, scribe, and healer – all divinely bundled as a singing, songwriting transformative energy. His gift of music is a magnifying glass to the soul, each song sincere and worth repeating for a lifetime. The seemingly casual fashion that Bob makes his guitar speak is not coincidentally right in rhythm with all of the toes tapping, tears dripping, and hands clapping in the room.
