Author Cherie Kephart

Soul Therapy:
The Spirit of Writing

Raised in Venice, California, Cherie longed to travel and experience the way other people lived. After serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Zambia, she fell severely ill. This led to a willingness to examine her life lessons and write the memoir “A Few Minor Adjustments: A Memoir of Healing.”  The memoir has won several awards and received an outpouring of heartfelt responses, motivating Cherie to write a companion book, “The Healing 100: A Practical Guide to Transforming Your Body, Mind, and Spirit.”

Her third book “Poetry of Peace” is a rare and poignant collection of poems that celebrate the decadence and darkness of life. This talk is sure to inspire each writer to dig deep inside to bring out the best in us.

Live meetings take place the first Saturday of every  month from 11am to 12:30pm in the Community Room of the Orange Public Library. Visitors are welcome.
