Neck & Shoulders Yoga

Nov 18, 2 pm – 4:30 pm
Clear Yoga

The shoulder joint has the most range of motion of any joint in the body and is in continuous use throughout the day and during most of the night. As such, it should come as no great surprise that athletes and office workers alike complain about shoulder aches and pains. Shoulder injuries can be acute (from sudden trauma) or chronic (from long-term wear and tear or repetitive movements) resulting in rotator cuff injuries, and even ligament tears in the shoulder capsule.

This workshop will address ways of strengthening the mid and upper back to support this area and give relief.  Level 1 and up. This workshop is taught by Jess, owner of Clear Yoga. Cost if $40. Sign Up

Nov 29, 6 pm – 7 pm
Oblong Books & Music

This event is free to attend.

Hit podcaster and New York Times bestselling novelist Joseph Fink ‒ co-author of It Devours! and Welcome to Night Vale – will present his new novel, ALICE ISN’T DEAD, a fast-paced, addictive thriller about a truck driver searching across America for the wife she had long assumed to be dead.

Worldwide fans of Welcome to Night Vale will be delighted to hear that Joseph Fink will visit Oblong in Rhinebeck this Fall with a brand-new novel  – ALICE ISN’T DEAD (Harper Perennial). The novel expands the story told in the hit podcast of the same name which has had over 6 million downloads in its first 10-episode season, making it one of the most downloaded fiction podcasts of all time.  *Season 3 of the podcast launched this April.  And it’s also being made into a TV series!  Mr. Robot executive producer Kyle Bradstreet has been tapped to write and executive produce a TV adaptation of Alice Isn’t Dead, along with Fink.  The series is in development at USA Network and Universal Cable Productions.

The novel is a creepy, clever horror thriller, that centers around a truck driver who searches across America for her missing wife.  During her journey, she encounters not-quite-human serial murderers, oracles living at gas stations and rest stops, a strange nameless adversary, and a terrible secret hidden in American history.
