In cooperation with Hospice of Central PA, we will be reading books focusing on the redemptive power of the human spirit. Melissa Bernstein, Co-Founder of the wildly successful toy company Melissa & Doug, brings readers on a journey to triumph over anxiety, depression, and despair―a story she hopes will help others find their path to meaning and inner peace. Now, more than ever, Melissa's message is needed by others, and her promise to all who journey with her is that you are not alone. You must have read or listened to the book to attend. Ages 18 and older, please. Register HERE.
