#nobras

I wrote a post about the improvements for women that occur when wearing bras is reduced or eliminated.


Except for jumping exercises and a few menopause-era months, I haven’t worn bras regularly or at all since 1977.


Highly recommend giving up bras.

Volume I, This Changes Everything, The Spanners Series, by Sally Ember, Ed.D.

Dr. Clara Ackerman Branon, 58, begins having secret visits from holographic representations of  beings from the Many Worlds Collective, a consortium of planet and star systems in the multiverse. When Earth is invited to join the consortium, the secret visits are made public. Now Earthers must adjust their beliefs and ideas about life, religion, culture, identity and everything they think and are. Clara is selected to be the liaison between Earth and the Many Worlds Collective and she chooses Esperanza Enlaces to be the Media Contact. They team up to provide information to stave off riots and uncertainty. The Many Worlds Collective holos train Clara and the Psi-Warriors for the Psi Wars with the rebelling Psi-Defiers, communicate effectively with many species on Earth and off-planet, eliminate ordinary, elected governments and political boundaries, convene a new group of Global Leaders, and deal with family’s and friends’ reactions.

In what multiple timelines of the ever-expanding multiverse do Clara and her long-time love, Epifanio Dang, get to be together and which leave Clara alone and lonely as the leader of Earth? This Changes Everything begins the 30-year story of Clara’s term as Earth’s first Chief Communicator, continuing in nine more Volumes of The Spanners Series. Are you ready for the changes?

Clara, Moran, Espe, Epifanio and the alien Band of holos are back in This Is /Is Not The Way I Want Things to Change of The Spanners Series. Psi-Defiers launch increasingly violent protests during this five-year Transition, attempting to block Earth’s membership into the Many Worlds Collective. To join, Earth’s nations and borders must dissolve and Psi-Warriors must strengthen in their battle against the rebels.

Clara, continuing as Earth’s first Chief Communicator, also juggles family conflicts and danger while creating psi skills training Campuses to help Earth through the Psi-Wars. Clara timults alternate versions of their futures as the leaders’ duties and consciences force them each to make difficult choices across multiple timelines while continuing to train and fight.

Will the Psi-Warriors’ and other leaders’ increasing psi skills, interspecies collaborations and budding alien alliances be enough for Earth to make it through The Transition intact? If there is no clear path for Clara’s and Epifanio’s love, does she partner with Steve or go it alone?

What do you do with wanted/unwanted changes?

About the Minnesota Book Awards

The Minnesota Book Awards is a year-long program that fosters our statewide literary arts community and connects readers and writers throughout Minnesota.


The process begins in the fall with book submissions and continues through winter with two rounds of judging. Winners are announced at the annual Minnesota Book Awards Ceremony each spring. Woven throughout the season are various engagement activities and events that promote the authors and connect the world of Minnesota books – writers, artists, illustrators, publishers, editors, and more – to readers throughout the state.


Winners announced April 6, and tickets are available now (use link, here). https://thefriends.org/minnesota-book-awards/


Finalists’ info and book covers are linked to, HERE. https://thefriends.org/minnesota-book-awards/minnesota-book-awards-winners/

Genre Fiction


Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories by Kelly Barnhill 

When Mrs. Sorensen’s husband dies, she rekindles a long-dormant love with an unsuitable mate. A young man wrestles with grief and his sexuality in an exchange of letters with his faraway beloved. A witch is haunted by the deadly repercussions of a spell. The stories in Dreadful Young Ladies demonstrate the strength and power – known and unknown – of the imagination. Barnhill is the author of four novels, most recently The Girl Who Drank the Moon, winner of the 2017 John Newbery Medal. She lives in Minneapolis.


Leave No Trace by Mindy Mejia 

A father and son disappear from a family camping trip, and search teams find their campsite ravaged. They are presumed dead until, a decade later, the son suddenly appears, largely uncommunicative and exhibiting violent tendencies. Therapist Maya Stark is tasked with making a connection with her patient and, as she’s drawn closer to this enigmatic young man, she’ll risk everything to reunite him with his father. Mejia received her MFA from Hamline University. She is the author of The Dragon Keeper and critically acclaimed Everything You Want Me to Be. She lives in Apple Valley.


The Shadows We Hide by Allen Eskens 

Reporter Joe Talbert Jr. stumbles across a story describing the murder of a man named Joseph Talbert. Curious whether this man might be his father, Joe is shocked to find that no one has much to say about the dead man – other than his death was long overdue. Joe must put together the missing pieces of his family history before his investigation puts him in a grave of his own. Eskens is a Minnesota Book Award-winner and the USA Today bestselling author of The Life we Bury, which is being developed for a feature film, The Guise of AnotherThe Heavens May Fall, and The Deep Dark Descending. He lives in Cleveland.


The Voice Inside by Brian Freeman 

Four years after serial killer Rudy Cutter was sent away for life, homicide inspector Frost Easton uncovers a terrible lie: his closest friend planted false evidence to put Cutter behind bars. When he’s forced to reveal the truth, his sister’s killer is back on the streets. Staying ahead of a killer who’s determined to strike again won’t be easy – not when the killer’s next move is unlike anything Frost expected. Freeman is a bestselling author of psychological thrillers, including the Jonathan Stride and Cab Bolton series. His works have been sold in 46 countries and translated into 22 languages. He lives in Woodbury.
