Del Mar - Sunday, March 8th at 3:00 pm - Constance Jones discusses and signs "Emerging Butterfly"
Join us on Sunday, March 8th at 3:00 pm as we welcome Constance Jones to the store to discuss and sign Emerging Butterfly!
Raised in San Diego in the 1980s, Constance was born to be a Californian dreamer. The fourth of nine children, she grew up with three demons in the dark cocoon of her impoverished home: alcohol, abuse, and absence.
An accident in Constance’s teen years rendered her a lifelong epileptic. As an adult, toxic relationships, misguided spiritual teachings, and close calls with death nearly broke her. Instead of breaking apart, she chose to break free, realizing her heart could sprout wings to take her in the direction of her wildest dreams.
In a mesmerizing memoir that is by turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, writer and philanthropist Constance Grays Jones retraces her precarious journey towards truth, love, community, and self-discovery. Tackling issues of epilepsy, depression, infertility, and family drama with refreshing sass, humor, and compassion, she reminds us that we are products of our past but also the creators of our purpose. Her inspiring story is a wakeup call for the soul, showcasing the tenacity of the human spirit, the pockets of sunlight in the darkest corners, and the transformational power of belief and love.
Constance G. Jones is a San Diego native, an avid reader, and a storyteller. She earned her Bachelor’s in Management and Organizational Communications from Point Loma Nazarene University and has since worked in administration, public relations, and career services; most recently, she serves as a site manager at Walmart Global eCommerce. In 2016, Constance founded Elevate Foundation with her husband, Claude, driven by their personal mission to make an impact in their local community and inspire others to do the same.
