A Note from Malaprops – Plans for Springtime

Hello out there, and happy April! 

As we are adjusting to this “new normal,” we are reflecting on how much the community means to us, and we’ve seen via online orders how much we mean to you! It is humbling to know you are out there, though we can’t see you. 

Though this is a hard time for all, with fear and insecurity of what comes next, it is a perfect time to slow down and enjoy the beautiful weather. The birds are even louder than normal. But in quieter moments, we can turn to gardens that need tending. Blank journals are waiting to be filled, and they can help unburden your mind. You can also discover that new novel while you sit outside on your deck.

We’re still here, sending out orders. If you need a recommendation, just give us a call!

Wishing you health and happiness,

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
