Gnu's Room Events

Here's what's going on at the Gnu's Room this week:

Tuesday, April 6th, 2:00 p.m. - The Write Time

Writers at any level of expertise are invited to meet each week at the
Gnu's Room for an hour of inspiration, sharing and information. The
meetings are facilitated by Helen Silverstein, editor of The Southern
Women's Review. Each week you are encouraged to bring copies of work
you wish to share and have edited. Those in the group who have the
time may volunteer to critique/edit.  Please limit the work you bring
to between 10 and 20 pages, since this is a weekly group. During at
least every other group meeting, there will be a brief presentation on
different writing techniques. If you would like to participate, but
the meeting time is not convenient, or if you have any questions about
the meetings, please email Helen at

Wednesday, April 7th, 5:30 p.m. - Coffee Cupping

Join Sarah Barnett, proprietor of Mama Mocha's Coffee Roastery at the
Gnu's Room, for a professional coffee cupping. Barnett will be
offering a cupping (tasting) every Wednesday. Space is limited and is
on a first come, first served basis.  Experience coffee from three
different regions and learn the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle,
differences in beans from various countries. If you participate in a
cupping, you may purchase the featured beans at a 25% discount on the
day of the cupping.

Friday, April 9th, 6:00 p.m. - "How to Use Emotional Freedom Technique
(EFT) To Reach Your Goals"

The Gnu's Room presents this free seminar, led by Nancy T. Hand, JD
who will provide participants with a brief history of EFT, how to do
it, and how to use it to "clear" negative beliefs and self-talk that
may be keeping them from progressing toward their goals.

Nancy Tilton Hand is the owner of Negotiation Ninja, through which she
provides Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) licensure training and
training in all levels of negotiation and communication – from rank
beginner to CEO level negotiations and beyond.  She offers congruence
coaching, negotiation coaching, and project-specific coaching for
public speaking fears, salary negotiations, and lofty goals. Clients
and training participants learn how to become congruent with their
desires and negotiate on their own behalf from a place of balance,
calm, and power.

Hand is an attorney, mediator, NLP Trainer, NLP Master Practitioner
and has been a Licensed Practitioner of NLP for over 25 years.  In
addition, Nancy has extensive experience in Emotional Freedom
Technique (EFT-ADV), Silva Method, and the use of intentionality and

the fields of linguistics, law, human behavior and cutting-edge
behavioral change technologies.

Saturday, April 10th, 7:00 p.m. - Live Music by John Peterson

After a brief hiatus from performing, (PhD programs are pretty
demanding!), John Peterson brings his original tunes back to the Gnu's
Room for the evening. Peterson's cd," Scene of Changery" can be heard
in frequent rotation at the store. His lyrics are thoughtful,
sometimes irreverent, but always entertaining. Whether strumming the
guitar, mandolin, or dobro, picking the banjo or playing harmonica,
Peterson never fails to leave his audience wanting to hear more of his
mix of blues/folk/country.

Originally from Michigan, Peterson always wanted to live in the South.
Attending Auburn University has given him that chance and we are so
glad he's here. Suggested donation, which will go to the performer, is
$5.00. Sample his music at
