KooKooLand : a memoir / Gloria Norris.
KooKooLand : a memoir / Gloria Norris.

This is why I came : a novel / Mary Rakow.
This is why I came : a novel / Mary Rakow.
A woman sits in prayerful meditation, waiting to offer her first confession in more than thirty years. She holds a small book on her lap, one that she's made, and tells herself again the Bible stories it contains, the ones she has written anew, for herself, each story told aslant, from Jonah to Jesus, Moses to Mary Magdalen. Woven together and stitched by hand, they provide a new version, virtually a new translation, of the heart of this ancient and sacred text. Rakow's Bernadette traces, through each brief and familiar story, a line where belief and disbelief touch, the line that has been her home, ragged and neglected, that hidden seam.


Redeemed unredeemable : when America's most notorious criminals came face to face with God / by Thomas Horn & Donna Howell.
Redeemed unredeemable : when America's most notorious criminals came face to face with God / by Thomas Horn & Donna Howell.
Jesus said that redemption--eternal salvation--is available to everyone. No one is beyond His reach; no one falls outside the boundaries of His willingness to forgive. Anyone who calls on Him will be saved, He sayd. But, does that really include the world's most infamous convicts? Redeemed unredeemable: when America's most notorious criminals came face to face with God features a close look into the lives of infamous members of the Manson family disciples such as Susan Atkins and Charles Tex Watson, as well as serial killer Ted Bundy, Milwaukee Monster Jeffrey Dahmer, Son of Sam David Berkowitz, Pickaxe Killer Karla Faye Tucker, and parent-killer Sean Sellers.

Sing to me : my story of making music, finding magic, and searching for who's next / LA Reid, with Joel Selvin.
Sing to me : my story of making music, finding magic, and searching for who's next / LA Reid, with Joel Selvin.
Over the last three decades, one music producer and record man has transformed the business, discovering and producing some of the greatest acts in pop music history, including Toni Braxton, Kanye West, Rihanna, TLC, Outkast, Mariah Carey, Pink, Justin Bieber, and Usher. At the helm of four celebrated and innovative music labels--LaFace, Arista, Island Def Jam, and Epic--LA Reid set his sights on finding one star after the next, and then worked behind the soundboard to create some of the most unforgettable hits of the last two generations. Now, for the first time, he tells his story, taking fans behind the scenes of his rise to record business stardom. He chronicles the journey from his small-town R&B roots in Cincinnati, Ohio, to his fame as a Grammy Award-winning producer to his gig as a judge on the hit reality show The X Factor. With fascinating insight into his process of scouting new talent, Reid also offers a detailed look at his involvement with the artists he's mentored into legends--from the beginning of their rises to that critical moment when he knew they would be the next big thing. What emerges is a captivating portrait of the inner workings of the pop music machine, and the story of a man climbing to the top on passion and raw talent alone, a multifaceted genius who continues to shape our culture to this day.--Adapted from dust jacket.

Every last tie : the story of the Unabomber and his family / David Kaczynski.
Every last tie : the story of the Unabomber and his family / David Kaczynski.
In August 1995 David Kaczynski's wife Linda asked him a difficult question: Do you think your brother Ted is the Unabomber? He couldn't be, David thought. But as the couple pored over the Unabomber's seventy-eight-page manifesto, David couldn't rule out the possibility. It slowly became clear to them that Ted was likely responsible for mailing the seventeen bombs that killed three people and injured many more. Wanting to prevent further violence, David made the agonizing decision to turn his brother in to the FBI. Every Last Tie is David's highly personal and powerful memoir of his family, as well as a meditation on the possibilities for reconciliation and maintaining family bonds.

Yellow Crocus / Laila Ibrahim.
Yellow Crocus /  Laila Ibrahim.
Moments after Lisbeth is born, she's taken from her mother and handed over to an enslaved wet nurse, Mattie, a young mother separated from her own infant son in order to care for her tiny charge. Thus begins an intense relationship that will shape both of their lives for decades to come. Though Lisbeth leads a life of privilege, she finds nothing but loneliness in the company of her overwhelmed mother and her distant, slave-owning father. As she grows older, Mattie becomes more like family to Lisbeth than her own kin, and the girl's visits to the slaves' quarters--and their lively and loving community she finds there --bring the two closer together than ever. But can two women in such disparate circumstances form a bond like theirs without consequence? This deeply moving tale of unlikely love traces the journey of these very different women as each searches for freedom and dignity -- Page 4 of cover.

The only pirate at the party / Lindsey Stirling and Brooke S. Passey.
The only pirate at the party /  Lindsey Stirling and Brooke S. Passey.
Dancing electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling shares her unconventional journey. A classically trained musician gone rogue, Lindsey is an example of independent, millennial-defined success: after being voted off the set of America's Got Talent, she went on to amass more than ten million social media fans, record two full-length albums, release multiple hits with billions of YouTube views, and to tour sold-out venues across the world. Lindsey is not afraid to be herself. In fact, it's her confidence and individuality that have propelled her into the spotlight. But the road hasn't been easy. After being rejected by talent scouts, music reps, and eventually on national television, Lindsey forged her own path, step by step. Detailing every trial and triumph she has faced until now, Lindsey shares stories of her humble yet charmed childhood, humorous adolescence, life as a struggling musician, personal struggles with anorexia, and finally, success as a world-class entertainer. Lindsey's story is a testimony that there is no singular recipe for success, and despite what people may say, sometimes it's okay to be The Only Pirate at the Party.


Kill the elevator speech : stop selling, start connecting / Felicia J. Slattery.
Kill the elevator speech : stop selling, start connecting / Felicia J. Slattery.
Contrary to popular marketing and networking wisdom, regurgitating a memorized elevator speech all over a poor unsuspecting soul who happens to ask the dreaded what do you do? question, does not work to establish a true connection with another human being. Kill the Elevator Speech is about why those standard, memorized verbal vomits are so horribly wrong and what to do and say instead that will actually bring people together, help others understand who you are, and create the beginnings of a referral and professional relationship to go beyond the initial handshake and obligatory card swap. The reader will learn how to walk into any room, confidently knowing how to handle, answer and completely address the question what do you do? with ease and grace, while also making the person they are speaking to feel comfortable and connected.
