Kona Stories Book Shop will host its October Words and Wine event on Oct. 6 at 6 p.m.

The monthly event includes an informal meet and greet, followed by a formal book presentation from each of three presenting authors and concludes with a question and answer session.

October’s authors include Clear Englebert, author of six Feng Shui books, include Feng Shut for Love & Money, Richard Diedriches, author of Spirit of Tabasco, and Alice Ray, CEO of Ripple Effects and author of Born for Greatness: Me, You and the Dalai Lama.

Englebert specializes in offering multiple Feng Shui solutions that are easy to implement and that can fit in with any decorative style, including some that are meant to be hidden from view. In his guide, Englebert offers easy-to-follow advice for promoting prosperity and attracting and enhancing relationships.


Diedriches has worked as an editor at travel and health magazines in Seattle. He also worked as an editor at the school of engineering and public health at the University of California, Berkely before turning to teaching. In his book, Spirit of Tabasco, Diedriches compiles nine stories that open the blinds on the experiences of people both young and old.

Ray is a long time child advocate who has developed videos, films, television shows, public service announcements, training software, and curricula to prevent child injury and to promote children health, safety, and school success. She has eight regional Emmys and more than a dozen film awards, 29 software awards, and various leadership awards. Ray is the author of Born for Greatness: Me, You and the Dalai Lama, which explores how leaders are found and trained for greatness, not created fully formed.

During the free event, complimentary pupus and wine will be served.
