A self-help book for those who feel empty inside despite all they have. Retired history teacher Charlie is looking for a new project but gets a lot more than he bargained for when he finds his new shed is possessed by the spirit of Gustin, a young apprentice druid from the first century AD. Gustin persuades Charlie to come back in time to Roman Britain, where he wants his help investigating why he died. This extraordinary trip becomes yet more intense when they come across a secret youth organisation led by Gustin’s childhood friend.
Central Britain has been at peace since Boudicca’s revolt some forty years before but now his group is plotting another rebellion. The elders are alarmed, most are prospering under Roman rule and they’ll try to stop their frustrated offspring in any way they can. Charlie is horrified when he realises that he has something the rebels badly want, all he wants now is to get back to his own time, where his family have only just discovered his disappearance. A nerve-shredding sequence of adventures follows, which finally culminate in the most dramatic discovery of all back in the 21st century.

About Spirits, Scandal and Sparkly Shoes: Confessions of a Kosher Medium
The spirits had been trying to get Bev Mann’s attention ever since she was a small child but it was only when tragedy struck and her beloved father passed away just days after she’d given birth to her first child, that she began to explore what they’d been trying to tell her.
Little by little she discovered that she had a special gift. She could hear what the dead were saying, sometimes she could see them and she could put them in touch with their grieving relatives.
Yet it took years of struggle for Bev to become a fully-fledged medium. She encountered opposition, criticism, hide-bound old-fashioned rules and the command to give up the religion she was born into – which would have devastated her traditional mum.
Spirits, Scandal and Sparkly Shoes follows Bev’s progress from bewildered child to student psychic, outspoken rebel and finally to working medium with many uncanny experiences along the way. Told in Bev’s lively, contemporary style she brings spiritualism into the 21st century and shows there really is life after death.

Sign up for the STEM Frenzy Festival on October 17, 2021 at 10:00 AM at Lee St. between Ocean Ave. and Holloway Ave. San Francisco, CA.
STEM Frenzy is hosting its first annual STEM Frenzy Festival, brought to you by The African American Early Childhood Educators, San Francisco’s Dream Keeper Initiative, The Good Rural, and STEM2Hearts on Sunday, October 17, 2021 to officially kick off the Monthly Stem Frenzies series, prioritizing STEM enrichment for African American children.
The STEM Frenzy Festival is where attendees of children, families, educators and the community will unite to explore stem based activities through hands-on activities and demonstrations provided by cutting edge stem based organizations, raffles, prizes and more. The STEM Festival is free and open to the public with COVID precautions in place. The STEM Frenzy’s mission for the festival is to bring the community together for meaningful learning, inspire the next generation and fuel children’s passion for stem based careers.
After the STEM Frenzy Festival, unique educational opportunities will continue with STEM Frenzies beginning Saturday, November 6, 2021 and continuing into Summer 2022 and will provide classes for up to 25 San Francisco based African American students, including separate at-home activities and family field trips. The STEM Frenzies (workshops) are free and on a first come first served basis. Parents and/or guardians are required to register their child/children in order to participate in the Frenzies. Visit www.stemfrenzy.org/stem-frenzy-series/ for all the frenzy details.
The STEM Frenzies for K-12 students delve into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and gain access to educational experiences to help them prosper and flourish. Hands-on activities and demonstrations from top stem based leaders and organizations will provide the children and community with a unique educational opportunity to thrive beyond the limits society has set for them. Through igniting a passion for stem based learning, STEM Frenzy Festival aspires to build confidence in children of underserved communities to chart a professional career in stem industries. Overall, STEM Frenzy strives to create a more inclusive, diverse, and brighter future.
As a project for the African American Early Child Educator, STEM Frenzy has been funded by San Francisco’s Dream Keeper Initiative to give voice to the needs of the legacy African American providers, facilitate dedicated space to cultivate the African American child care industry, support child care providers that care for African American children, and provide educational support and resources to the underserved children and their families as a whole.
STEM Frenzy has established funding, partnerships, and collaborations with the San Francisco Human Rights Commission Dream Keeper Initiative, U.S. Army Reserve Command, U.S. Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve Officer Training Program, Fisher Scientific, Oakland Military Institute, San Francisco Black Led Organization Coalition (SFBLOC), San Francisco MegaBlack and more to come.
“I have spent over 40 years of my life living, learning, and working for organizations that taught me everything I needed to know to become a 7-time President’s Club Award winning Medical, Scientific, and Information Technology Sales Executive generating over $100 million dollars in Sales. My goal is to take my 40+ years of STEM2 (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, & Medicine) training and give it back to the youth and their families from our disenfranchised communities of color. My inspiration for introducing the San Francisco STEM Frenzy Art & Science Festival is to inspire, educate, and motivate students, and families from these disenfranchised communities in need, and transform them into communities with STEM and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) skills and talents that organizations and employers cherish and need,” says Derek L. Toliver, founder of STEM2Hearts Leadership & Career Training and STEM2Sports.
Sponsorships are available for the STEM Frenzy Festival and Frenzies. For more details, visit www.stemfrenzy.org/sponsorship-opportunities/ or contact Delia Fitzpatrick, Managing Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org

About The African American Early Childhood Educators
The African American Early Child Educator project has been funded by San Francisco’s Dream Keeper Initiative to give voice to the needs of the legacy African American providers, facilitate dedicated space to cultivate the African American child care industry, support child care providers that care for African American children, and provide educational support and resources to the underserved children and their families as a whole.
About The Dream Keeper Initiative
The Dream Keeper Initiative The Dream Keeper Initiative is a new, citywide effort to reinvest $120 million over the next two years from law enforcement into San Francisco’s Black and African American community. This Initiative is part of Mayor London N. Breed’s roadmap for reforming public safety and addressing structural inequities in San Francisco. Inspired by Langston Hughes’s line, the Dream Keeper Initiative seeks to address and remedy racially disparate policies so that the dreams of young African-Americans and their families are no longer deferred, and they have the needed resources and support to thrive in San Francisco. The Dream Keeper Initiative aims to break the cycle of poverty and involvement in the criminal justice system for the families in City programs and ensure that new investments, including in youth development, economic opportunity, community-led change, arts and culture, workforce, and homeownership, are accessible to San Francisco’s families who are most in need.
