‘Finding the Unpredictable Good’ includes pieces from Ashland writer Sara Walker

Authors of a new book of stories and essays on challenges they’ve faced while “on quests to discover the ‘Unpredictable Good'” will gather in person Monday, Nov. 7, at Bloomsbury Books for an author signing, then online Saturday for a virtual book launch.

Sara Walker of Ashland is one of the four authors who wrote “Finding the Unpredictable Good.”

“Finding the Unpredictable Good” includes essays and short stories from Sara Walker of Ashland, with additional writings from Alex Gambeau, Mara Pennell and Pam Rodolph.

Monday’s book signing starts at 7 p.m. at the bookstore, 290 E. Main St., Ashland. The first three people to attend will receive a free copy of the book. Signed copies will be available.

A virtual book launch will follow at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12. Those interested in attending the virtual event should email Walker at sara.hatsoff2u@gmail.com for a link, the release said.

In the book’s preface, available in a digital preview of the book on Amazon, the four writers point to their involvement with the Prosperos School of Ontology, a spiritual organization that hopes to “foster and develop spiritually-motivated action in social and civil life,” according to the group’s website.

“The Prosperos is a school, not a church, but spiritual. We study consciousness,” the book’s preface reads. “Our extraordinary journey began in a course called ‘Advanced Mentors Workshop.’ The lessons cover everything from issues we deal with in ourselves and our clients to the students with whom we came in contact. Each class in the program from which the Words in this book came.”

The book’s content, the preface continues, is “fictional, but built from real life experiences.”

“We hope our stories provide you with new insights into many of life’s situations, perhaps allowing you to consider things in a new and different way,” the preface says.

Walker has been a student of The Prosperos since 1970, according to the news release.

Relocations: The heartbreaking futility of still another Blitz

Herbert Rothschild: “It’s hard to dismiss spite as a motive for aerial assaults on civilian targets unassociated with ground offenses against them. That’s especially true because retrospective studies of such assaults during World War II revealed that they do little to impede fighting capacity and, if anything, strengthen the popular will to carry on.”
