What's in the stars for your next book?

From a listener question via Instagram: "Not necessarily a dilemma, but I would like books to be paired with your astrological sign!” This week the booksellers reveal not only their own signs (sun, moon, and rising) and how to map your ego, id and super-ego accordingly, but also just-right book pairings for your astrological vibe! 

(Episode 22, premiered 10.18.22)

CONGRATS Shelf Help Podcast on passing 1000 downloads! Shelf Help is a collaboration between the Book Jam, a nonprofit designed to inspire readers; JAM, Yankee Bookshop; the Norwich Bookstore; and Still North Books & Bar.

5 S. Main St. 1st Floor

White River Junction, VT

In a society increasingly divided and isolated, storytelling can bring us together. Story Jam is a bi-monthly story circle where community members can get to know each other through personal stories. You're invited to join the circle and share an unrehearsed 5-minute true story from your own life. No competition, no judgment, no lecturing, no ranting… Just a story about something that happened to you and a chance to listen to other people’s stories. Whether a new or seasoned storyteller, shy or extroverted – all are welcome!

Facilitated by Judith Hertog and Michelle RoggeFor more info, reach us at:
