The Book Cellar
Need a mind and body pick-me-up? Come see us at Thousand Waves Martial Arts & Self Defense Center for Women where author Susan Schorn will be reading from her new book, Smile at Strangers: And Other Lessons in the Art of Living Fearlessly.
Susan Schorn led an anxious life. For no clear reason, she had become progressively paralyzed by fear. Fed up with feeling powerless, she took up karate. She learned how to say no and how to fight when you have to (even in the dark). Here this double black belt recounts a fighting, biting, laughing woman’s journey on the road to living fearlessly—where enlightenment is as much about embracing absurdity and landing a punch as about finding that perfect method of meditation.
