Carpenter launches 'Goddess' book Oct. 12

THOMASTON — Local author Judith Perry Carpenter launches her new book, "The Uninvited Goddess," on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Maine Authors Publishing, 12 High St. The event is open to the public. Carpenter will speak a bit about the book and how it came to be, then sign books for those interested in purchasing one. Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.

Carpenter's book offers readers a riveting memoir, a powerful archetype, and an invitation for awakening to oneness and greater consciousness in these troubled times.

Many people know Carpenter from her role in helping to found Greenfire, the women’s retreat center in Tenants Harbor that served the community for many years prior to its closing in 2007. She is an Episcopal priest, who earlier served 12 years as chaplain at Dana Hall School for Girls in Wellesley, Mass.

"The Uninvited Goddess" is Carpenter’s second book. Many will remember her first book, "Peacework Quilt: 365 Meditative Offerings," which offered readers contemplative poetic daily readings for people from any faith tradition or none. Both books were published through Maine Authors Publishing.
