  • It's a house concert in Ashburn!

    Polished and precise, yet buoyed with an airy grace, Joy Ike paints with a broad palette that defies easy categorization. Born to Nigerian immigrants, the singer/songwriter’s music, voice, and writing have drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Nina Simone, Laura Nyro, and Regina Spektor. But her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing.

    Leaving her career as a publicist in 2008, Joy has spent the last 10 years playing thousands of shows across the country. A write-up on NPR's All Things Considered says "The depth of subjects she tackles in her poetic lyrics are perfectly complemented by a unique blend of neo-soul, with just the right dash of pop...a truly compelling act to watch in person, with the ability to create an intimate setting in locations big and small."

    Ike is currently on tour in support of her new album Bigger Than Your Box. Written over a four-year period that included a relocation from the comparatively small Pittsburgh to the gritty, thrumming metropolis of Philadelphia, the record is joyously defiant, standing proud and wrapped in blasts of exotic color. It dares us to believe in ourselves, to knock down the walls of fear and doubt we build around ourselves. “This is an open-armed invitation to dive head first into the unseen”, says Ike. Bigger Than Your Box boldly explores what Ike often refers to as divine discontentment; the restless middle ground between what is and what ought to be. “The spiritual mystery of life and the ever-present Spirit of God that embraces us in our most helpless state.” For details visit: www.joyike.com.

    Hearty snacks and refreshments (both alcoholic and non) will be served, however you are welcome to bring your own food and beverages.

    We will open our doors for folks to mingle and meet Joy at 7:30 p.m. Music will begin at 8:00 pm.

    Suggested donation, collected at the door: $15-20 (100% of all contributions are given directly to the artists) (Cash only)

    Artist's merchandise (CDs, etc). will be available for sale, so bring a little extra cash. ;)

    RSVP for the address.

    Facilitator: Alegra Hall

    As a member of the National Press Club I am excited to be a part of the media landscape which influences the world. In my role as a producer and guest booker for more than a decade I gained the unique set of skills that helps small businesses, non-profit organizations and burgeoning new talent reach the media spotlight.

    It has been my pleasure to work alongside such great people at CBN News and on Capitol Hill. It is here that I honed my writing skills and had the opportunity to interview scores of politicians, missionaries and world changers like NPR newsman Juan Williams, Chik Fil-A legend Truett Cathy and even meet A-list actor/humanitarian George Clooney.

    In 2000 I founded Women Walking in Wisdom which produces the annual Jump Into January event.  JIJ has grown to seat hundreds of women and now reaches over 300,000 Facebook viewers during our LIVE conferences.

  • Francis A. Gregory Neighborhood Library and Esther Productions Inc. have joined forces to present this exciting community conversation: FAMILY RESTORATION: Celebrating Fathers, Empowering Parents on June 1 from 1:00 pm to 3 pm. 

    Recently, I was sitting on the front porch of my mother's home in New Orleans, La. I was caught in reverie, remembering the days riding my bike with friends from the neighborhood; the backyard picnics my grandmother used to throw; and all the other families who lived in houses on Mexico Street. Those families were as imperfect as my own. But I have come to appreciate the lessons and values they passed along to us.

    Family matters.

    A distinguished group of professional experts and seasoned activists lead an important conversation about strengthening and restoring families in DC and the Metropolitan region. Representatives from Unified Parenting a program at George Washington University will make a special presentation.

    The event features an exciting group of leaders including, 

    Brittany N. Adams ATR, LPC is a licensed Art Therapist and clinician in private practice. She received her master’s degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School. She has worked as a primary/clinical therapist providing therapeutic services through integrative counseling approaches to adolescents and families.

He received acclaim for Dare to Be King: What If the Prince Lives. A Survival Workbook for African American Males, a thought provoking, 52-week curriculum teaching adolescent males how to survive and thrive in toxic environments. Lowell Vincent Muse envisioned himself a father even when he was himself a child. Nothing could block his dream. He enjoyed a 44-year career as a broadcast; for 20 of those years he was an engineer.

  • Kramerbooks is excited to welcome author Brad Thor for the release of his new book BACK LASH. He'll be in conversation with Larry O'Connor.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:

    #1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 Publishers Weekly bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most gripping thriller yet!

    In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.

    They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.

    Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.

    One man is all three.

    Two days ago, that man was crossed—badly.

    Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.

    With no support, no cavalry coming, and no one even aware of where he is, it will take everything he has ever learned to survive.

    But survival isn’t enough. Harvath wants revenge.

    In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence and a revelation that will take your breath away.
