The Abolitionist’s Daughter @ Posman Books
May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

“All our life needs is for us to come to a spiritual endurance. The effect of this spiritual endurance is the primary factor that can take you calmly and quietly through the channels of life. There is no difference between you and your divine endurance.The pressure we all go through is sometimes unbearable and this pressure is always here. Atmosphere has a pressure, longitude and latitude have a pressure, and aptitude and attitude have a pressure. That is why we build spiritual endurance through meditation and mantra. Sometimes each person’s load can only be taken collectively. Collectively we can pull the weight. We have a collective strength in us, hand in hand, in friendship, in the love, and in the affection. Do not keep things to yourself and say, ‘I cannot.’ There is nothing you cannot do.”-Yogi Bhajan

The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

“All our life needs is for us to come to a spiritual endurance. The effect of this spiritual endurance is the primary factor that can take you calmly and quietly through the channels of life. There is no difference between you and your divine endurance.The pressure we all go through is sometimes unbearable and this pressure is always here.

Sometimes each person’s load can only be taken collectively. Collectively we can pull the weight. We have a collective strength in us, hand in hand, in friendship, in the love, and in the affection.

The Abolitionist’s Daughter @ Posman Books
May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Abolitionist's Daughter @ Posman Books

Vividly rendered, culturally important and unexpectedly personal, THE ABOLITIONIST’S DAUGHTER is Diane McPhail’s debut novel. Set in Mississippi during the violent turmoil leading up to and just after the Civil War, the novel illuminates a corner of Southern history that’s little-known and rarely glimpsed: the experiences and struggles of those openly opposed to slavery in a time and place when the freeing of slaves was illegal, the suggestion of it potentially fatal.  At the novel’s heart are three extraordinary women who refuse to compromise what they know to be right, as they negotiate the devastations of war, betrayal and a world depleted by the conflict of men. One of these characters was actually inspired by Diane McPhail’s own great grandmother, as the events in the book are all based on the true historical feud between two families – the Edwards and the Greys – in Webster County, Mississippi.

Kundalini Keep Up: No Excuses! @ The Plaza

Bring your A-game: Your Affirmation, Allegiance, and Acceptance of Self! A six-week series for Spiritual Endurance starting Mother’s Day and going for subsequent Sundays from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. Make a reservation for $18 and 25% of the proceeds will go to Motherhood Beyond Bars–Compassionate Support for Incarcerated Women.

“All our life needs is for us to come to a spiritual endurance. The effect of this spiritual endurance is the primary factor that can take you calmly and quietly through the channels of life. There is no difference between you and your divine endurance.The pressure we all go through is sometimes unbearable and this pressure is always here. Atmosphere has a pressure, longitude and latitude have a pressure, and aptitude and attitude have a pressure. That is why we build spiritual endurance through meditation and mantra. Sometimes each person’s load can only be taken collectively. Collectively we can pull the weight. We have a collective strength in us, hand in hand, in friendship, in the love, and in the affection. Do not keep things to yourself and say, ‘I cannot.’ There is nothing you cannot do.”-Yogi Bhajan
