Program: Move Your Body, Free Your Mind presented by Meda White
Tree House Room at Vestavia Library

No word strikes fear in the heart of a writer faster than the "B" word. Just saying it out loud could conjure up the story-halting evil that torments the very soul of the scribe. Sometimes, wordsmiths give it more dominion that it deserves. Yet, the struggle is real.

Let’s explore how to defeat our enemy, writer’s block, by moving our bodies and freeing our creative minds.


Meda White is an award-winning author who writes sweet, sultry, and southern contemporary and new adult romance. Born with Georgia clay running through her veins, she continues to enjoy the Southern lifestyle with her husband, a very spoiled Collie, and a stray cat who adopted the family. When not writing, you might find her making music, shooting zombie targets, or explaining the meaning of her unusual first name. As a health and fitness enthusiast and licensed instructor for Les Mills BodyFlow/BodyBalance and CXWORX programs, Meda believes adequate nutrition and movement can help heal and strengthen mind, body and soul.
