After the Rain

You Can Always Change Your Mind
by Linda Barnes-Aaron

Welcome to the wonderful universe of You Can Always Change Your Mind. In these twenty-six quietly wild inventions, Linda Barnes-Aaron concerns herself with family ties, the magnetic power of the sea, the wisdom of animals, and the looming obliterations of all we hold dear. Yet these stories instruct us that love and redemption are always at hand in the unlikeliest of guises.

An Introduction

For more than twenty years, Carol Edelstein and Robin Barber have led writing workshops in Northampton, MA, and sponsored an accompanying reading series for participants of the workshops.

In 2011, A Gallery of Readers became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association, with the mission to stimulate interest in, and access to, literature written by emerging creative writers. The association conducts educational workshops for writers, develops and promotes opportunities to enlarge the audience for their art; publishes books and broadsides; and ensures access to such opportunities inclusively without restrictions based on gender, orientation, age, education, or income levels; and to perform any other acts necessary to achieving these goals.
