They say beauty comes from within, and music does so quite literally - most sounds of music are created inside the instruments. Maybe that is the reason why Mona Sibai and Björn Ewers came up with an idea to photograph musical instruments from inside to promote Berlin Philharmonic orchestra. …
These photos are incredibly beautiful!

Join authors Chris Kuhn, Anthony Paull, and myself for a special event hosted by the Selby Public Library called Writing the New Woman, part of the library’s ongoing Literary Sessions series. The interactive panel will feature a moderator-led discussion about the various depictions of the modern woman in today’s fiction and include an open Q&A with audience members,
We will be discussing the female protagonists in our novels and I am very excited to talk about Amanda Fowler, the lead character from my novel, Love’s Naked Nature. Amanda is an entomologist and TV nature show host who struggles against the chauvinism of the novel’s 1970s setting to keep both her dignity and passion in her pursuit of both science and love. A modern day Shakespearean pastoral comedy, Love’s Naked Nature explores the judgments, expectations, and defense mechanisms that complicate love and friendship.
The event is free and open to the public. It takes place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 15 in the Jack G. Geldbart Auditorium in the Selby Public Library in Sarasota, Florida. After the panel and Q&A, the authors will be on hand for a book signing. Copies of their books will be on sale, but quantities may be limited. There are links below to order books beforehand.
