MAC Center for the Arts – January 2020 Artist of the Month: Isa Oehry

Newport. Welcome 2020 as the MAC Center for the Arts continues the highlight, Artist of the Month. Our January artist is author, Isa Oehry. Isabella (Isa) S. Oehry is a resident of Greensboro, VT, but once you chat with her you realize she is not originally from Vermont. Isa grew up in the Principality of Liechtenstein. She studied in Europe (business) and then in the US (information systems and later psychology at Union Institute and University).
A talented writer and author, she has been a member of the MAC Center for the Arts for two years. She says that she always loved writing and telling stories that are meaningful, uplifting and humorous. When asked who her role models are, she explained, “There are so many exquisite writers. I am usually in awe when I read someone else's words. I write in English, a second language for me, which continues to challenge the eloquence of my vocabulary. I do have a very good editor,” she quips. Her writing is powerful, engaging, and penetrating.
Her “Under A Blue Moon” touches upon the unseen powers within, which we all have, yet are mostly unaware of. This book speaks to the reader in a very personal and individual way. “ I often marvel at what readers tell me they had experienced while reading this book. This book definitely has its own agenda,” she expressed.


On a personal note, having heard her read from this book at the MAC's Musings and Music program in September, I found the words to not only riveting but thought provoking. It is simply a gorgeous piece. Her latest book, “Healing Lyme Beyond Antibiotics” (available January 2020) will help people afflicted with Lyme Disease. Emphatically, Isa states that “There is indeed a path to recovery from this devastating disease!”



Don't miss these featured author events at
Royalton Memorial Library!
Thursday March 3rd, 7pm

Join authors Isa Oehry and Kate George for a discussion of
their books and writing process.

Isa Oehry's   book   Under a Blue Moon , released through Balboa Press in 2015, is a “true story, and often humorous account. It inspires us to look beyond the obvious, and keep our minds and hearts open for the unseen and previously unheard," said Oehry. 
Kate George's   Bree MacGowan mystery fiction series includes three books, Moonlighting in Vermont ,   California Schemin' , and   Crazy Little Thing Called Dead . "Bella Bree MacGowan is your average country girl. She works two jobs to support her farm and the menagerie of stray animals that accumulate there," said George about the first book in the series. "But when she finds a dead body at the five-star resort where she moonlights as a maid, her life careens out of control."

Under A Blue Moon

"[R]ecent scientific discoveries have taught that although we all share 99.9 percent of the same twenty-five thousand genes, it is after birth that we begin to switch them on and off in response to our cells' interpretation of different environmental signals."

This semi-memoir is less scientifically inclined than that quotation might suggest — but, having established this "Page 32" conceit, we're going to stick with it. Oehry's book is an account of the year she spent in search of prana, a Sanskrit word that means, roughly, "life force." Inspired one night by the rare lunar event of the book's title, the author embarked on a journey through Vermont that paralleled a spiritual journey of awakening. A good choice for readers who like their campfire stories flavored with a dash of chakra .
