- November 11 – Bestselling author Suza Scalora will present a “Share Your Angel Story” event at 7 p.m. She is co-author of Evidence of Angels (HarperCollins), an adventure of the heart based on Suza’s own personal experience of losing a loved one. She chronicles her journey from grief to hope and love though the support and guidance from angels – and includes more than twenty color photographs of angels including: Angel Of Grief, Angel Of Winter, Angel Of Peace, Angels Of Compassion, Angel Of Clarity, Angel Of Wisdom and the Angel Of Love; each conveying special messages for the reader. “Are we alone? Do angels exist? What happens after we die and leave this earth?”Â These are questions that New York photographer Suza wrestled with until she began a project, hanging her photographs of angels throughout New York City, on walls and lampposts and fences, along with her email address. Three days later her first letter arrived.Â In this book, Suza applied her years of experience photographing otherworldly presences and created this unforgettable collection of angels representing an array of emotions, seasons and dreams.

The stories are full of wisdom and inspiration, poetry and common sense, and they give us insights not only into how women grow old, but how they grow whole.
