- BRCM Storytime Series: Sat, Mar 4, 2PM with Lori Mier and her book "Merin and Her Very Bright Star; A Story of Resiliency" We’ll be serving up some Very Bright Star Sugar cookies and doing a sketching activity along with listening to the Story!
- About the Book: A young girl with a deeply felt loss in her life turns to a very bright star to talk to each night. She also carries a notebook wherever she goes to sketch all the bright and beautiful things that she sees that remind her to wonder about her mom and dad. With the help of a grief counselor and an unexpected friend, Merin learns a lot about herself and the world. Merin And Her Very Bright Star is a heartfelt story for children in the early grades. Themes include healing, self awareness, developing relationships, grief and loss, coping, nature connection, community and resiliency.
About the author: Lori Mier is the creator and owner of her story. She loves chai tea and sunrise hikes. Lori owns Blue Mountain Path Coaching LLC where she offers healing experiences as a children’s book author, Ecotherapist guide, and photographer. Merin and Her Very Bright Star: A Story of Resiliency is her first children’s book, which was deeply inspired by her own story of loss and healing. Lori is on a mission to help normalize grief, healing and having difficult conversations. Lori has a degree in Social Work and created a not-for-profit hiking program–Through Hiking–

Foundation in Waynesboro, VA where she is committed to education, political action, and racial justice work. Although she is not originally from Virginia, Lori feels the most at home where she lives in the Shenandoah Valley with her husband and son.
