The Goddess will come alive on February 15th at 2 p.m. at The Cinematique. The public is invited to speak with Carol Thomas, David Axelrod and Lenny Schneir, co-authors of Merlin Stone Remembered. The book includes Lenny’s memoir about his life with Merlin Stone, pioneer feminist and author of When God Was a Woman which documented 8,000 years of lost Goddess history. There will also be a 1-hour film entitled Goddess Remembered, by Donna Read, produced by the National Film Board of Canada. The movie includes Merlin Stone and other proponents of the Goddess.
Lenny was Merlin Stone’s life partner for thirty-four years and is dedicated to continuing her work. He and Merlin first came to Daytona Beach in 2000. After Merlin passed away in 2011, he was encouraged to put his story in writing. That story is now part of the 15-chapter, 331-page book, Merlin Stone Remembered. Together with local authors David B. Axelrod and Carol Thomas, the book is now for sale at www.merlinstone.org and at Barnes and Noble in Daytona Beach.
“My mission is to inform people about the importance of the Goddess,” says Lenny, who identifies himself as a male feminist. “Merlin’s scholarship proves that Goddesses were worshiped long before our present belief in a male God.”
Admission is $5. The three authors will be present to sign copies of Merlin Stone Remembered. Cinematique is located at 242 South Beach Street, Daytona Beach. For more information, call the theater at 386-252-3118 or contact Dr. Axelrod, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 386-337-4567.
