Bring your kids, grandkids, nieces, and nephews for a fun story hour with our bookseller Sarah. 

“Make a wish upon your eyelash

and blow it to the winds.

Your wish will then come true.”

How many of us have been told to do this at least once in our lives? "Wishless" tells the tale of a kingdom that falls on hard times after banning the act of wishing upon an eyelash. Unintended consequences follow as well as lessons learned.

After nearly 30 years working as a successful and award-winning TV writer producer, Harry Werksman left the comfortable confines of Los Angeles for the wind-swept, wide-open spaces of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Upon his arrival, he decided that the story for WISHLESS – which had come to him fully formed in a dream 25 years prior and had been waiting for some attention – was his next project. The problem was he had a story, but his artistic skills were and are, at best, poor. But when the Universe put he and Maya together WISHLESS quickly became a reality. Wishes are child-like, innocent prayers and people around the world have countless traditions surrounding them. WISHLESS is the first book in a series that will explore these traditions and, we hope, will open the hearts of readers – both young and old - to the possibility of manifesting a better world for us all.
