Marshall Goldberg

Author of The New Colossus

Thursday, July 24th at 7pm



Nellie Bly arrives at age 24 in Manhattan, lacking connections and money, but blessed with an abundance of courage and a skill for reporting. Within ten months she lands two front- page stories on the country's most widely-read newspaper, Joseph Pulitzer's New York World.

The pugnacious and voluble Pulitzer is so impressed that he assigns her to get to the bottom of a murder that has confounded the police-the untimely death of his friend Emma Lazarus, the controversial poet and activist. Her investigation leads to tense encounters with some of the most powerful and ruthless men of the time, in an era where elected officials are bought and sold, and where greed runs rampant on an unregulated Wall Street. Outgunned and ignoring her contemptuous all-male colleagues, Bly has only two real allies: a doctor who uses scientific techniques to establish criminal behavior, and a theater critic with unlimited access to underground New York. As the pieces fall into place Bly uncovers layer after layer of corruption, getting closer to a dangerous core-and to the truth.

Joshua Weissman

Author of The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook

Friday, July 25 at 7pm

Now 18 years old, Joshua was born and raised in California and currently lives in Texas. At a very young age, he had an immense passion for cooking. Sadly, as he got older, his health began to decline and he was ridiculed and made fun of because of his weight. 

One day he had enough. Joshua began eating healthy and he educated himself on food and nutrition.  Joshua lost  over 100 pounds. (Before and after photos here) Now at the age of 18, he is healthy, fit, happy, and still has a strong love for food.  Check out this clip.  

Joshua now shares his love of food and cooking with his knowledge of eating healthy in his new cookbook The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook.  Come and meet Joshua and discover what he has learned!

Kelly V. Brozyna

Author of Dairy-Free Ice Cream

Kelly began to study nutrition in 2004 when her oldest girls were very young and not well. Their naturopathic doctor worked with them to radically change their diet by removing gluten, casein, and refined sugar. She and her husband soon realized that their  own health problems could be resolved as well by eliminating these out of their diets.

After years of research and experimentation, Kelly now creates gluten-free and Paleo food so similar to conventional wheat/dairy/refined sugar recipes that no one feels deprived. Together, through diet and biomedical treatments, their family is overcoming celiac disease, gluten-intolerance, ADD, and autism with great success. Kelly has been blogging at since 2008, and published four cookbooks.

Kelly's recipes and photography have been featured on, The Huffington Post,,,,, Driscoll’, Living Without magazine, Paleo Magazine, and more. My books are recommended by After living in Boulder county for 6 years we left for an adventure here in southern California.

"I believe in eating healthy real food. I know that chocolate and dessert can be as nutrient-dense as pot roast. Most of all I hope you enjoy these recipes that have changed my family’s life!" ♥, Kelly
