Book Launch & Meetup: Break Your Invisible Chains
7:30 PM19:30

Book Launch & Meetup: Break Your Invisible Chains

Self Narrate is releasing our first book, Break Your Invisible Chains, and we want to celebrate it in a unique way, so we're hosting a book launch party combined with our monthly storytelling meetup!

What is that going to look like? The co-authors of Break Your Invisible Chains, Jaron Jones, Brandon Telg and Carly Barnes, will do a brief book reading, share some stories, and then we will open the floor and transition into a Self Narrate storytelling meetup!

This month's meetup theme is the name of the book: Break Your Invisible Chains.

WHERE: This special event is happening at Third House Books. Third House Books is a brand-new independent bookstore in downtown Gainesville. (You can find their address on their facebook page, but for context, its near The Top.) We are excited to be the first book launch at Third House!

If you've never been to a storytelling meetup, what happens is that we give people an opportunity to share their personal stories based around a theme! Each storyteller is given 5-7 minutes.

We will have copies of the book for sale for $10 and bundles of a book and a Self Narrate T-Shirt for $20. PLEASE BRING CASH. We can't accept credit cards.
You can also purchase a copy of the book here: http://www.amazon.com/Break-Your-Invisible-Chains-Power/dp/0997335408/

Book Synopsis: Have you ever wondered how trainers manage to keep circus elephants from stampeding out of a big top tent? It's quite the same way we often train ourselves to live within our limiting beliefs. Use this active journaling guide to break your invisible chains, and own your own story to become the most powerful and authentic version of yourself.
