This is Chance! : the shaking of an all-American city, a voice that held it together / Jon Mooallem.

This is Chance! : the shaking of an all-American city, a voice that held it together / Jon Mooallem.
In the spring of 1964, Anchorage, Alaska, was a modern-day frontier town yearning to be a metropolis--the largest, proudest city in a state that was still brand-new. But just before sundown on Good Friday, the community was jolted by the most powerful earthquake in American history, a catastrophic 9.2 on the Richter Scale. For four and a half minutes, the ground lurched and rolled. Streets cracked open and swallowed buildings whole. And once the shaking stopped, night fell and Anchorage went dark. The city was in disarray and sealed off from the outside world. Slowly, people switched on their transistor radios and heard a familiar woman's voice explaining what had just happened and what to do next. Genie Chance was a part-time radio reporter and working mother who would play an unlikely role in the wake of the disaster, helping to put her fractured community back together. Her tireless broadcasts over the next three days would transform her into a legendary figure in Alaska and bring her fame worldwide--but only briefly. That Easter weekend in Anchorage, Genie and a cast of endearingly eccentric characters--from a mountaineering psychologist to the local community theater group staging Our Town--were thrown into a jumbled world they could not recognize. Together, they would make a home in it again.

Anse is joined by Malaya, a former soldier herself, who after discharge hunted poachers decimating an elephant refuge in Africa; Lope, whose training in falconry taught him to pilot surveillance drones; and Tyler, a veterinarian who has found a place in Anse's obsessive world.

The Pride of Eden is a brilliant fever dream of a novel: set on the eroding edge of civilization, rooted in dramatic events that are linked not only with each character's past, but to the prehistory of America, where great creatures roamed the continent and continue to inhabit our collective imagination--

Some assembly required : decoding four billion years of life, from ancient fossils to DNA / Neil Shubin.

Some assembly required : decoding four billion years of life, from ancient fossils to DNA / Neil Shubin.
The author of the best-selling Your Inner Fish, now gives us a lively and accessible account of the great transformations in the history of life, that enable us to further understand whether our presence on this planet is an accident or inevitable. The great transformations in the history of life brought about whole scale shifts in how animals live and how their bodies are organized: the evolution of fish to land-living creature, the origin of birds, the beginnings of bodies in single-celled creatures. Shubin describes how over the last half-century, scientists have been able to explore how genetic recipes build bodies during embryological development--how these inventions and adaptations occur in a nonprogressive manner in different contexts, at different speeds. Paleontology has been transformed over the last 50 years by tools and techniques of molecular biology--and it is that revolution in our understanding of the evolution of life that Shubin traces here. Each of us is a mosaic of precursors that came about at different times and places, with deep rooted connections across species that Darwin, for all he understood, could never even have imagined--

The course of all treasons /  Suzanne M. Wolfe.
The Elizabethan court is beset by traitors at home and abroad as spies, rogues, and would-be usurpers of the throne vie for power. England, 1586. Tensions rise as threats to the realm abound. Traitors are plotting for Mary Queen of Scots to depose Elizabeth I and take the throne. Rumors of a Spanish invasion by sea mount daily. And the body of one of Sir Francis Walsingham's agents is found floating in the Thames as other agents face enemies armed with crossbows and vials of poison. Nicholas Holt, a spy in Walsingham's employ, narrowly averts the same fate while setting off in pursuit of the killer--or killers. And when he surprises a suspect in the company of a Spanish agent, he believes he's close not only to solving the case but preventing an act of high treason. But soon, the attacks begin to threaten Nick's circle of friends. As those he loves face mortal peril, Nick must unravel the tangled plot, all the while steering a careful path through the fierce rivalry between Walsingham's agents and those of the Queen's favorite, the upstart Earl of Essex. Now it's a race to the breathless conclusion as Nick desperately searches for the answers that can save the day--and a vestige of loyalty that can save his own life.--Provided by publisher.


The Fortress / S. A. Jones.

The Fortress /  S. A. Jones.
Jonathon Bridge has a corner office in a top-tier law firm, tailored suits and an impeccable pedigree. He has a fascinating wife, Adalia, a child on the way, and a string of pretty young interns as lovers on the side. He's a man who's going places. His world is our world: the same chaos and sprawl, haves and have-nots, men and women, skyscrapers and billboards. But it also exists alongside a vast, self-sustaining city-state called The Fortress where the indigenous inhabitants -- the Vaik, a society run and populated exclusively by women -- live in isolation. When Adalia discovers his indiscretions and the ugly sexual violence pervading his firm, she agrees to continue their fractured marriage only on the condition that Jonathon voluntarily offers himself to The Fortress as a supplicant and stay there for a year. Jonathon's arrival at The Fortress begins with a recitation of the conditions of his stay: He is forbidden to ask questions, to raise his hand in anger, and to refuse sex. Jonathon is utterly unprepared for what will happen to him over the course of the year -- not only to his body, but to his mind and his heart. This absorbing, confronting and moving novel asks questions about consent, power, love and fulfilment. It asks what it takes for a man to change, and whether change is possible without a radical reversal of the conditions that seem normal.


My sister : how one sibling's transition changed us both / Selenis Leyva & Marizol Leyva with Emily Chammah.

My sister : how one sibling's transition changed us both / Selenis Leyva & Marizol Leyva with Emily Chammah.
A powerful, honest memoir by two sisters - one a star on Orange Is the New Black, one a trans woman and activist - about transitioning, family, allyship, and the path to self-realization. When Selenis Leyva's parents adopted a baby into their warm, loving family, Selenis was immediately smitten. The pair were always close; Selenis showered her younger sibling with affection, who in turn looked up to Selenis and followed her everywhere. The siblings realized, almost at the same moment, that the younger of the two was struggling with their identity. As Marizol transitioned and fought to define her identity, Selenis and her family struggled to support her. In My Sister, they narrate their shared journey, challenges, and triumphs. In alternating chapters, Selenis and Marizol write honestly about the issues of violence, abuse, and discrimination that trans people and women of color - and especially trans women of color - experience daily. And they are open about the messiness and confusion of fully realizing oneself and being properly affirmed by others, even those who love you.--Cover.


The genius life : heal your mind, strengthen your body, and become extraordinary / Max Lugavere.

The genius life : heal your mind, strengthen your body, and become extraordinary / Max Lugavere.
The human body was honed under conditions that no longer exist. The modern world has changed dramatically since our days as hunter gatherers, and it has caused widespread anxiety, stress, and disease, leaving our brains in despair. But science proves that the body and brain can be healed with the intervention of lifestyle protocols that help us to regain our cognitive birthright. In The Genius Life, Lugavere expands the Genius Foods plan, which focused on nutrition and how it affects brain health, and expands it to encompass a full lifestyle protocol. We know now that the health of our brainsincluding our cognitive function and emotional wellnessdepend on the health of our gut, endocrine, cardiac and nervous systems as there is a constant feedback loop between all systems. Drawing on globe-spanning research into circadian biology, psychology, dementia prevention, cognitive optimization, and exercise physiology, The Genius Life shows how to integrate healthy choices in all aspects of our daily routines: eating, exercising, sleeping, detoxing, and more to create a healthy foundation for optimal cognitive health and performance.


War fever : Boston, baseball, and America in the shadow of the Great War / Randy Roberts and Johnny Smith.

War fever : Boston, baseball, and America in the shadow of the Great War / Randy Roberts and Johnny Smith.
In War Fever, celebrated sports historians Randy Roberts and Johnny Smith explore the monumental changes taking place in Boston during the Great War through the stories of three men: Karl Muck, the German conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra;Charles Whittlesey, a Harvard Law Student who was called to service and became an unlikely leader; and perhaps the most famous baseball player of all time, the Red Sox's Babe Ruth. Each was cast into the turmoil of the war, and each emerged as a public figure of one sort or another: one a villain, one a hero, one an athlete. Throughout the war, Bostonians lived on high alert; fearing an attack on the city's harbor, mines were anchored in the bay and a wire net stretched across the channels to prevent German submarines from encroaching. In an ethnically diverse city, fraught with tension between interventionists and pacifists, the war unleashed intolerance, hostility, and xenophobia. Karl Muck, after allegedly refusing to perform theStar-Spangled Banner at a symphony concert, was detained by federal agents and accused of espionage. His arrest soon became a national scandal as he was labeled a dangerous enemy alien and sent to an internment camp in Tennessee. Across the Atlantic, on the Western Front, Charles Whittlesey won overnight fame when he refused to surrender the makeshift battalion he commanded to the Germans. Dubbed by newspapers as the Lost Battalion, Whittlesey and his men symbolized their country's iron resolve in one of the war's bloodiest battles. And for George Herman Ruth, perhaps the most famous German-American at the time, the war was transformative, paving the way for his metamorphosis from the most dominant left-handed pitcher in the game to the sport's greatest slugger. Together, the stories of these three men reveal how a city and a nation confronted the havoc of a new world order, the struggle to endure the war, and all its unforeseen consequences. At once a gripping narrative of American culture in upheaval and a sweeping account of the conflict, War Fever is narrative history at its best.--

An unsuitable lady for a lord / Cathleen Ross.

Lord Aaron Lyle has one hell of a choice: a bankrupt dukedom, or marriage to some simpering society miss so his spendthrift father can get his hands on her huge dowry. He won't do it. He has a reputation to maintain, and besides, he'd rather run naked through the streets of London than marry anyone at all. Surely, there must be a third option. Then Lady Crystal Wilding walks into his life, a bluestocking, full of subversive thoughts, who hates the notion of marriage even more than he does. He is intrigued...and suddenly he has an idea. He invites the totally unsuitable lady home on the pretext of presenting her as a possible match...but in truth, Aaron has something far more pleasurable in mind. For her part, Lady Crystal has her own reasons for going along with his harebrained scheme. Imagine their shock when his highly proper family loves her and starts planning the wedding. Good lord. Now what?

A New York Times Bestseller Anne Hillerman brings together modern mystery, Navajo traditions, and the evocative landscape of the desert Southwest in this intriguing entry in the Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito series. When Tribal Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito arrives to speak at an outdoor character-building program for at-risk teens, she discovers chaos. Annie, a young participant on a solo experience due back hours before, has just returned and is traumatized. Gently questioning the girl, Bernie learns that Annie stumbled upon a human skeleton on her trek. While everyone is relieved that Annie is back, they're concerned about a beloved instructor who went out into the wilds of the rugged lava wilderness bordering Ramah Navajo Reservation to find the missing girl. The instructor vanished somewhere in the volcanic landscape known as El Malpais. In Navajo lore, the lava caves and tubes are believed to be the solidified blood of a terrible monster killed by superhuman twin warriors. Solving the twin mysteries will expose Bernie to the chilling face of human evil. The instructor's disappearance mirrors a long-ago search that may be connected to a case in which the legendary Joe Leaphorn played a crucial role. But before Bernie can find the truth, an unexpected blizzard, a suspicious accidental drowning, and the arrival of a new FBI agent complicate the investigation. While Bernie searches for answers in her case, her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee juggles trouble closer to home. A vengeful man he sent to prison for domestic violence is back-and involved with Bernie's sister Darleen. Their relationship creates a dilemma that puts Chee in uncomfortable emotional territory that challenges him as family man, a police officer, and as a one-time medicine man in training. Anne Hillerman takes us deep into the heart of the deserts, mountains, and forests of New Mexico and once again explores the lore and rituals of Navajo culture in this gripping entry in her atmospheric crime series.

Cherokee America / Margaret Verble.

From the author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist Maud's Line, an epic novel that follows a web of complex family alliances and culture clashes in the Cherokee Nation during the aftermath of the Civil War, and the unforgettable woman at its center. It's the early spring of 1875 in the Cherokee Nation West. A baby, a black hired hand, a bay horse, a gun, a gold stash, and a preacher have all gone missing. Cherokee America Singer, known as Check, a wealthy farmer, mother of five boys, and soon-to-be widow, is not amused. In this epic of the American frontier, several plots intertwine around the heroic and resolute Check: her son is caught in a compromising position that results in murder; a neighbor disappears; another man is killed. The tension mounts and the violence escalates as Check's mixed race family, friends, and neighbors come together to protect their community-and painfully expel one of their own. Cherokee America vividly, and often with humor, explores the bonds-of blood and place, of buried histories and half-told tales, of past grief and present injury-that connect a colorful, eclectic cast of characters, anchored by the clever, determined, and unforgettable Check.

In 1942, Lawrence Pritchard Waterhouse-mathematical genius and young Captain in the U.S. Navy-is assigned to detachment 2702. It is an outfit so secret that only a handful of people know it exists, and some of those people have names like Churchill and Roosevelt. The mission of Waterhouse and Detachment 2702-commanded by Marine Raider Bobby Shaftoe-is to keep the Nazis ignorant of the fact that Allied Intelligence has cracked the enemy's fabled Enigma code. It is a game, a cryptographic chess match between Waterhouse and his German counterpart, translated into action by the gung-ho Shaftoe and his forces. Fast-forward to the present, where Waterhouse's crypto-hacker grandson, Randy, is attempting to create a data haven in Southeast Asia-a place where encrypted data can be stored and exchanged free of repression and scrutiny. As governments and multinationals attack the endeavor, Randy joins forces with Shaftoe's tough-as-nails granddaughter, Amy, to secretly salvage a sunken Nazi submarine that holds the key to keeping the dream of a data haven afloat. But soon their scheme brings to light a massive conspiracy with its roots in Detachment 2702 linked to an unbreakable Nazi code called Arethusa. And it will represent the path to unimaginable riches and a future of personal and digital liberty...or to universal totalitarianism reborn. A breathtaking tour de force, and Neal Stephenson's most accomplished and affecting work to date, Cryptonomicon is profound and prophetic, hypnotic and hyper-driven, as it leaps forward and back between World War II and the World Wide Web, hinting all the while at a dark day-after-tomorrow. It is a work of great art, thought and creative daring; the product of a truly iconoclastic imagination working with white-hot intensity.

In Detox Your Thoughts, popular psychologist Andrea Bonior, PhD, identifies the 10 most prevalent mental traps that make people feel anxious, insecure, and generally just bad. Clinical psychologist Andrea Bonior has spent over twenty years studying, teaching, and practicing the science of thoughts, emotions, and behavior. In Detox Your Thoughts, she uses the latest research into mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to teach you to understand your thoughts-and your body-in a completely different way. To challenge negative self-talk, you must change the way you relate to your thoughts altogether. Bonior shows us how to create new mental pathways that truly stick. For each of the ten mental traps, Bonior offers a new habit to practice, including: - leaning in to your feelings - recognizing and counteracting your blind spots to gain insight - valuing the present moment, and immersing yourself in it. Bonior deciphers the latest research in psychology and neuroscience to help disempower and conquer self-sabotaging thoughts with specific and actionable steps. You're not erasing negative thoughts, but rather growing bigger than they are-and improving your mental and emotional life along the way.

Meet Austin Davenport, whose fabulous luck landed him on this earth only eleven short months after his brother, Derek, putting them in the same grade. While Austin's brain power is unmatched, it appears as if his brother got all the athletic gifts and the family butt-chin, meaning their parents love Derek more than Austin, or so it seems. Join Austin on his journey through the tumultuous waters of middle school as he navigates the swampy and undeodorized hallways and explores the depths of the cafeteria's seafood surprise. Oh, and someone is plotting to take down the Halloween Dance, the one that Austin has his sights set on, so he can take Sophie Rodriguez, a girl way out of his league, but who doesn't seem to know it. Can he stay one step ahead of the new principal who has it out for him? Will Austin figure out who the perpetrators are? Will he save the dance in time? Will he wear a diaper on a stakeout? This first in a planned series of twelve will have you ROFLing like you never have before. The funny and fast-paced nature of this series is meant for middle grade and early young adult readers.

Fix her up : a novel / Tessa Bailey.

Fix Her Up ticks all my romance boxes. Not only is it hilarious, it's sweet, endearing, heartwarming and downright sexy. It's a recipe for the perfect love story. - Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author of Meet CuteA steamy, hilarious new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey, perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Sally Thorne! Georgette Castle's family runs the best home renovation business in town, but she picked balloons instead of blueprints and they haven't taken her seriously since. Frankly, she's over it. Georgie loves planning children's birthday parties and making people laugh, just not at her own expense. She's determined to fix herself up into a Woman of the World... whatever that means. Phase one: new framework for her business (a website from this decade, perhaps?) Phase two: a gut-reno on her wardrobe (fyi, leggings are pants.) Phase three: updates to her exterior (do people still wax?) Phase four: put herself on the market (and stop crushing on Travis Ford!) Living her best life means facing the truth: Georgie hasn't been on a date since, well, ever. Nobody's asking the town clown out for a night of hot sex, that's for sure.

And who better to help demolish that image than the resident sports star and tabloid favorite. Travis Ford was major league baseball's hottest rookie when an injury ended his career. Now he's flipping houses to keep busy and trying to forget his glory days. But he can't even cross the street without someone recapping his greatest hits. Or making a joke about his... bat. And then there's Georgie, his best friend's sister, who is not a kid anymore. When she proposes a wild scheme-that they pretend to date, to shock her family and help him land a new job-he agrees. What's the harm? It's not like it's real. But the girl Travis used to tease is now a funny, full-of-life woman and there's nothing fake about how much he wants her...


Full of grace / Dorothea Benton Frank.

The move from New Jersey to Hilton Head, South Carolina, wasn't easy for the Russo family-difficult enough for Big Al and Connie, but even harder for their daughter Maria Graziella, who insists on being called Grace. At thirty-one and still, shockingly, unmarried, Grace has scandalized her staunchly traditional Italian family by moving in with her boyfriend Michael-who, though a truly great guy, is agnostic, commitment-phobic, a scientist, and (horror of horrors) Irish! Grace adores her parents even though they drive her crazy-and she knows they'd love Michael if they got to know him, but Big Al won't let him into their house. And so the stage is set for a major showdown-which, along with a devastating, unexpected crisis and, perhaps, a miracle or two, just might change Grace's outlook on love, family, and her new life in the new South.

Drought has settled on the town of Peaches, California. The area of the Central Valley where fourteen-year-old Lacey May and her alcoholic mother live was once an agricultural paradise. Now it's an environmental disaster, a place of cracked earth and barren raisin farms. In their desperation, residents have turned to a cult leader named Pastor Vern for guidance. He promises, through secret assignments, to bring the rain everybody is praying for. Lacey has no reason to doubt the pastor. But then her life explodes in a single unimaginable act of abandonment: her mother, exiled from the community for her sins, leaves Lacey and runs off with a man she barely knows. Abandoned and distraught, Lacey May moves in with her widowed grandma, Cherry, who is more concerned with her taxidermy mouse collection than her own granddaughter.

In praise of paths : walking through time and nature.

An ode to paths and the journeys we take through nature, as told by a gifted writer who stopped driving and rediscovered the joys of traveling by foot. Torbjørn Ekelund started to walk-everywhere-after an epilepsy diagnosis affected his ability to drive. The more he ventured out, the more he came to love the act of walking, and an interest in paths emerged. In this poignant, meandering book, Ekelund interweaves the literature and history of paths with his own stories from the trail. As he walks with shoes on and barefoot, through forest creeks and across urban streets, he contemplates the early tracks made by ancient snails and traces the wanderings of Romantic poets, amongst other musings. If we still understand ourselves in relation to the landscape, Ekelund asks, then what do we lose in an era of car travel and navigation apps? And what will we gain from taking to paths once again?

Lieutenant Peter Decker works overtime to calm rampant fears of a 9/11-type terror attack. But a grisly mystery lives inside the plane's charred and twisted wreckage: the unidentified bodies of four extra travelers. And there is no sign of an airline employee who was supposedly on the catastrophic flight. Decker and his wife, Rina, have personal reasons for being profoundly shaken by the tragedy, since the accident occurred frighteningly close to their daughter Hannah's school. Luckily, their child and her schoolmates escaped unscathed. But the fate of the unaccounted-for flight attendant-twenty-eight-year-old Roseanne Dresden-remains a question mark more than a month after the horrific event, when the young woman's irate stepfather calls, insisting that she was never onboard the doomed plane. Instead, he claims, she was most likely murdered by her abusive, unfaithful husband. But why, then, was Roseanne's name included on the passenger list? Under intense pressure from the department to come up with answers, Decker launches an investigation that carries him down a path of tragic history, dangerous secrets, and deadly lies-and leads him to the corpse of a three-decades-missing murder victim. And as the jagged pieces slowly fall into place, a frightening picture begins to form: a mind-searing portrait of unimaginable evil that will challenge Decker's and Rina's own beliefs about guilt and innocence and justice. Combining relentless suspense with intense, multilayered human drama, The Burnt House is Faye Kellerman at her mesmerizing best.

The luxury destination and award-winning restaurant is gone, and Daphne is nowhere to be found. Most disturbing, one of the children is in a wheelchair after a mysterious accident. What happened in this house? Where is Daphne? What darkness lies hidden in Barnsley?


The influenza pandemic of 1918 / Claire O'Neal.

In 1918, the deadliest virus in human history struck worldwide with hardly any warning. A victim of the Spanish flu could wake up healthy and fall down dead the same day. In the United States, so many people fell ill that schools and churches closed. There werent enough healthy doctors and nurses to care for the sick, or enough healthy gravediggers to bury the dead. When U.S. troops joined World War I that year, they couldnt have imagined that more soldiers would die from the flu than fighting. The Spanish flu claimed between 50 million and 100 million lives globally in less than a year. Now, less than a century later, new strains of bird flu are killing people in Asia in much the same way. Are we on the verge of another deadly pandemic?

Glamour, treachery, and espionage collide when an English socialite rushes to save her sister from the Nazis. As the daughter of Sir Alfred Whitford, Kat has a certain set of responsibilities. But chasing her wayward sister, Ellie, to Nazi-occupied Paris was never supposed to be one of them.

Arrested for simply trying to defend himself against a drunken bully, Barrett Anderson is given the option of going to jail or serving out his sentence by training Resistance fighters in Paris. A bar owner serves as the perfect disguise to entertain Nazis at night while training fighters right below their jackboots during the day.

Can Barrett and Kat trust each other long enough to survive, or will their hearts prove more traitorous than the dangers waiting around the corner?


The son of Sobek : a Carter Kane/Percy Jackson adventure / Rick Riordan.

And their meeting isn't exactly friendly. . . . Includes a sneak peek chapter from HOUSE OF HADES, Book Four in the Heroes of Olympus series.


The spinster diaries : a novel / Gina Fattore.

Our heroine, a moderately successful TV writer in L.A., wants her life to be as sunny and perfect as a Hollywood rom-com: a cool job, a wacky best friend, and lots of age-appropriate hot guys just dying to date her. Instead, she's a self-described spinster who is swimming in anxiety and just might have a tiny little brain tumor. So she turns to an unlikely source for inspiration: the eighteenth-century novelist and diarist Frances Burney, who pretty much invented the chick-lit novel. A semi-autobiographical unromantic comedy, The Spinster Diaries is a laugh-out-loud satire of both the TV business and the well-worn conventions of chick lit-as well as the true tale of the forgotten writer who inspired Jane Austen to greatness. It's an endearing and refreshingly honest testament to how one person's life can reach out across the centuries to touch another's.


The staff of Serapis : an Annabeth Chase/Sadie Kane adventure / Rick Riordan.

This is the story fans have asked for, in which Annabeth Chase teams up with Sadie Kane. The demigod daughter of Athena and the young magician from Brooklyn House take on a larger-than-life foe from the ancient world. Perhaps even more disturbing than the power-hungry god they encounter is the revelation that he is being controlled by someone-someone all too familiar to Sadie. The audio narration was recorded by Rick Riordan himself. As a special bonus, the first chapter of THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS, the final book in the Heroes of Olympus series, is included.


The stone circle / Elly Griffiths.

At the same time, Ruth receives a letter purporting to be from that very same person-her former mentor, and the reason she first started working with Nelson. But the author of those letters is dead. Or is he? The past is reaching out for Ruth and Nelson, and its grip is deadly.


The stranger diaries / Elly Griffiths.

But can the ending be rewritten in time?


The subtweet : a novel / Vivek Shraya.

Everyone talks about falling in love, but falling in friendship can be just as captivating. When Neela Devaki's song is covered by internet-famous artist Rukmini, the two musicians meet and a transformative friendship begins. But as Rukmini's star rises and Neela's stagnates, jealousy and self-doubt creep in. With a single tweet, their friendship implodes, one career is destroyed, and the two women find themselves at the center of an internet firestorm. Celebrated multidisciplinary artist Vivek Shraya's second novel is a stirring examination of making art in the modern era, a love letter to brown women, an authentic glimpse into the music industry, and a nuanced exploration of the promise and peril of being seen. A story of female friendship, with a fast-paced plot and a nuanced examination of art, brown culture, social media, call-out culture, the music industry, and sexism. Following two women from the throes of first friend infatuation to a tweet that splits them apart and destroys one career, THE SUBTWEET is a book only artist Vivek Shraya could write. Vivek Shraya is an artist whose body of work crosses the boundaries of music, literature, visual art, theater, and film. Her bestselling book I'm Afraid of Men was heralded by Vanity Fair as cultural rocket fuel, and her album with Queer Songbook Orchestra, Part-Time Woman, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize. She is one half of the music duo Too Attached and the founder of the publishing imprint VS. Books. A five-time Lambda Literary Award finalist, Vivek has also received honors from the Writers' Trust of Canada and the Publishing Triangle. She is a director on the board of the Tegan and Sara Foundation and an assistant professor of creative writing at the University of Calgary. Neela Devaki was an original. She was reminded of this fact shortly after she stepped out of her cab and into the Fairmont Hotel, the main site for the North by Northeast Festival. Zipping through the masses of musicians, fans and industry reps, she felt sorry for the chandeliers, which loomed above like golden flying saucers, forced to light up the dull networking that buzzed beneath them. But a conversation between two art students, draped in curated thrift wear featuring strategically placed rips and holes, brought Neela to a reluctant halt. I was totally working on something like this for my final project. I guess originality really is dead, one of the women sighed, taking photos of herself, duck-faced with a pop-up art installation. Neela skimmed the artist's statement. The frosted toothpick statues of penises were a comment on the current global epidemic of white demasculinization. Why not just hang a red and white flag that said Make Art Great Again? Brevity was the true endangered species. You should still do it. All the good ideas are taken anyways. Isn't that kind of freeing? replied the other. Neela snorted. She would never offer that sort of comfort to a stunted peer. No wonder she was bored with most of the art she encountered. She considered sharing with these young women that she always knew she was on the verge of invention at the precise moment when originality felt impossible. That instead of surrendering to despair, she would needle in and out and through her brain until an idea surfaced - naked, stripped of predictability and familiarity. That this process often required her to sing a phrase over and over for hours until the syllables carved their own unique melody out of hollow air. She was certain that the reiteration planted the words in her vocal chords so that when she sang them, they carried the imprint of her body. By embedding herself into her song, she muted any risk of passing off mimicry as art. Why wasn't fully committing to creation more d

The Truth about Us : The Very Good News about How Very Bad We Are.

What would happen if you admitted you weren't a good person? It's a seemingly crazy question. From priests to prisoners, nearly everyone thinks they're morally better than average. Why change our minds? Why admit the truth about ourselves? In his conversational, fun-to-read, and delightfully self-effacing style, Brant Hansen shows us why we should fight our drive to be self-righteous: it's breathtakingly freeing. What's more, just admitting that we're profoundly biased toward ourselves and want desperately to preserve our rightness at all costs even helps us think better, make better decisions, be better listeners, and improve our relationships with God and others. Hansen draws from biblical insight and the work of everyone from esteemed social psychologists to comedians to make his point: the sooner we get over ourselves, give up the I'm good internal dialogue, and admit the truth, the sooner we can live a more lighthearted, fruitful, fun-loving life. This book is about the freedom of childlike humility. After all, as Hansen writes, the humble life is truly your best one.

And all is fair in love and war when it comes to keeping their home.


The water keeper / Charles Martin.

Murphy Shepherd is a retired priest, living alone on an island, and tending the grounds for a church with no parishioners.

Along the way, his path intersects with a dance instructor named Summer who is searching for her daughter. It doesn't take Murph long to realize that Summer's search is even more dire than they knew, and that her daughter has been abducted into the world of trafficking. As they search for Angel, they also discover a stowaway. And it's no coincidence the stowaway chose his boat. There's more to Murph than it first seems, but agonizing memories have long compelled him to keep the truth hidden. At once a tender love story and a heartrending search for freedom, The Water Keeper reminds us of the healing power of forgiveness.

Elena has left the neighborhood, earned her college degree, and published a successful novel, all of which has opened the doors to a world of learned interlocutors and richly furnished salons.

And yet, they are still very much bound to each other in a book that shows off Ferrante's strong storytelling ability and will leave readers eager for the final volume of the series (Library Journal). One of modern fiction's richest portraits of a friendship. -NPR


Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk : a Christian's Guide to Engaging Politics.

According to Eugene Cho, Christians should never profess blind loyalty to a party. Any party. But they should engage with politics, because politics inform policies which impact people. In Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: A Christian's Guide to Engaging Politics, Cho encourages readers to remember that hope arrived-not in a politician, system, or great nation-but in the person of Jesus Christ. With determination and heart, Cho urges readers to stop vilifying those they disagree with-especially the vulnerable-and asks Christians to follow Jesus and reflect His teachings. In this book that integrates the pastoral, prophetic, practical, and personal, readers will be inspired to stay engaged, have integrity, listen to the hurting, and vote their convictions. When we stay in the Scriptures, pray for wisdom, and advocate for the vulnerable, our love for politics, ideology, philosophy, or even theology, stop superseding our love for God and neighbor.

When the darkness seems too hard to bear, there's only one thing left to do. Six years ago, Daniel was a Los Angeles financial analyst who was too handsome for his own good. Too smart for his anchor job on the nightly news. And too enamored with the heady addictions of the high life. That man died in a tragic accident with his fiancée. With grief and guilt battling for control, Daniel moved to the quiet California seaside town of Miramar Bay with his best friend-a rescue Labradoodle who still sees him through rough times. Daniel's a different man now. Clean, sober, and taking things one day at a time with no commitments to anyone except himself. And just as his solitude begins to chafe, two souls in need of fresh starts unexpectedly enter Daniel's life . . . Realize that it's time to wake up. Daniel's self-centered sister has dissolved several longtime relationships. Theirs included. The latest? Her restless teenage daughter, Nicole, whom she's dropped off in Miramar Bay without a backward glance.

Yet to Daniel's surprise, playing surrogate father is forging a bond that he needs, too. More difficult for Daniel is the possibility of romance with lovely and fragile Stella Dalley. Struggling with a trauma of her own, the single mother is as cautious about love as Daniel is-no matter how healing it could be. But for Daniel, Stella, and Nicole there's still hope for a tomorrow they can call their own. All they have do is to learn to trust in each other, and in themselves. A powerful novel of new beginnings, chances taken, and hearts lost and found, Tranquility Falls is a timeless love story to treasure.

Why We Swim.

In a way, all swimming stories are attempts to reacquaint our land-adapted selves with water. Why We Swim asks what's behind the human relationship to swimming. Our evolutionary ancestors swam for survival; now in the 21st century we swim in freezing Arctic waters, wide straits and channels, and piranha-infested rivers just because they are there. Swimming is an introspective (and silent) sport in a chaotic age; it's therapeutic for those who are injured, and it's an adventurous way to get from point A to point B. It's also one route to that elusive, ecstatic state of Flow. Propelled by stories of polar swim champions, a Baghdad swim club, the winningest Olympians, modern-day samurai swimmers, even an Icelandic fisherman who improbably survived a six-hour swim in the wintry Atlantic, the narrative takes us around the globe as Bonnie pursues swim culture and swimmers both living (Lynne Cox), recently living (Oliver Sacks), and long gone (Lord Byron). Bonnie's own parents met in a swimming pool in Hong Kong, so this book is her origin story, too, and we follow her as she swims everywhere from San Francisco Bay to the South China Sea to investigate what seduces us to water, despite its dangers, and why we come back to it again and again. As she writes: Swimming helps me to slow down, and to speed up. I have practiced enough to know how to be calm, and how to generate controlled fury. I can forget myself in a bathtub-warm lake, or, in a steam-wisped Icelandic lagoon, be so exquisitely present that every glint and glimmer is seared into my brain forever.

Brilliantly inventive, Wicked offers us a radical new evaluation of one of the most feared and hated characters in all of literature: the much maligned Wicked Witch of the West who, as Maguire tells us, wasn't nearly as Wicked as we imagined.

Collecting one of the most beloved comic strips of all time, with a devoted audience of more than 220 million. This new series, produced with Lynn Johnston's cooperation, is the definitive edition, collecting each decade of the strip in three volumes. Since For Better or For Worse debuted in 1979, the world has watched the Patterson family grow up in real time-and to many readers, they feel like family! This book starts at the very beginning and reprints more than three years of the daily and Sunday comics.


Family business : a For better or for worse collection.

This volume includes the story that earned Lynn Johnston a Pulitzer Prize nomination. The '90s start with a bang for the Patterson's when Elly finds out she is pregnant! Follow April Patterson as she grows from a toddler to a three-year-old, all in this single volume-but that isn't all the excitement in the house, especially when there is a teenager around. Michael gets his first summer job, a steady girlfriend, and a driver's license-if he passes the test. Adolescence is just as challenging for Elizabeth, who navigates middle school, learns to cope with the stigma of wearing glasses, and is peer-pressured into smoking a cigarette! Meanwhile, John succumbs to his (first) mid-life crisis when he buys his first model train. The highlight of this collection, however, is Lawrence's coming out story, a tender and compassionate tale of gender identity and acceptance for which Lynn was deservedly nominated for the newspaper industry's top honor. Includes every comic strip from December 10, 1989 to April 24, 1993.


Family business : a For better or for worse collection.

Michael enters junior high school, but not before learning a different sort of life lesson at summer camp with a girl named Martha, while Liz loses her first tooth, gets her ears pierced, and finds herself in a Mean Girls situation with her friends at school. Then it's wedding bells for Uncle Phil, and Lawrence moves back to town-with a new family of his own! Volume Three, which collects the complete daily and Sunday comics from July 6, 1986 through December 9, 1989, brings to a close the first decade of Lynn Johnston's modern masterwork, but of course, the story is just getting started...


Family business : a For better or for worse collection.

Michael has to deal with a bully at school and takes a flight to Vancouver-all by himself! John has an unfortunate accident and is arrested for breaking and entering!

The complete Peanuts.

The second volume is packed with intriguing developments, as Schulz continues to create his tender and comic universe. It begins with Peanuts' third full year and a cast of eight: Charlie Brown, Shermy, Patty, Violet, Schroeder, Lucy, the recently-born Linus, and Snoopy. By the end of 1954, Pigpen and his dust cloud join the crowd. Linus, who still doesn't speak, begins to emerge as one of the most complex and endearing characters in the strip: garrulous and inquisitive yet gentle and tolerant. And, in this volume, he acquires his security blanket! Charlie Brown is becoming his best-known self, the lovable, perpetually-humiliated round-headed loser, but he hasn't yet abandoned his brasher, prankish behavior from Volume One. And, Lucy, this book's cover girl, has grown up and forcefully elbowed her way to the center of the action, proudly wearing her banner as a troublemaker, or, in Schulz's memorable phrase, a fussbudget.


The lab.

The Lab is a wordless visual journey into the grim machinery of exploitation. Its nameless protagonist is held in solitary captivity, alternately poked, prodded, starved, drugged, and worse. Brief glimpses of other test subjects, undergoing their own ordeals, are few and far between. But is all this abuse and isolation purely arbitrary? Or is there a purpose? Painstakingly and evocatively rendered, Allison Conway's debut graphic novel explores the spectrum between lifeless gray and vivid color. It asks uncomfortable questions about the treatment we tolerate and the injustices underlying our modern world.

(A)Typical woman : free, whole, and called in Christ / Abigail Dodds.
A Woman Through and Through In a culture that can belittle womanhood on the one hand-making it irrelevant-and glorify it on the other-making it everything-it's hard to know what it really means to be a woman. But when we understand womanhood through the lens of Scripture, we see that we need a bigger category for what God has called woman. This book breathes fresh air into our womanhood, reminding us what life in Christ-as a woman-looks like. When we see that we are women in all we do, we can be at peace with how God has created us, recognizing womanhood as an essential part of Christ's mission and work. Abigail Dodds (BA, Bethel University) is a wife and mother of five children. She writes and teaches Bible studies for the women at Bethlehem Baptist Church, where her husband, Tom, serves as an elder. She contributes to desiringGod.org and blogs at her personal site, hopeandstay.com.

As a man thinketh / James Allen.

As a man thinketh /  James Allen.
Read for the first time by an all-female cast. James Allen's revolutionary treatise on the power of thought, combined with the bonus audiobook Mastery of Destiny. Originally published in 1903, James Allen's As A Man Thinketh reveals the fundamental truth of human nature: A man is literally what he thinks. Allen's deceptively simple principle has changed the lives of millions of readers and listeners, making As A Man Thinketh a classic bestseller for decades. Allen explains that our character, identity, ability, and success are all determined by the thoughts in our minds. Instead of finding ourselves victims of the world, there exists within each of us the ability to shape and define our own destinies. Finances, health, social status, and success are all external manifestations of the thoughts that populate our minds. Allen offers listeners an opportunity to seize control of their minds and in doing so create the lives they've always imagined. This new edition combines As A Man Thinketh with another of Allen's companion works, Mastery of Destiny. In Mastery of Destiny, Allen shows that the natural progression of human evolution is away from the evil that results from ignorance and towards ultimate good. Combined in one program, these two audiobooks offer a revolutionary outlook of empowerment. This program is read by Adelia Saunders, Barrie Kreinik, Carly Robins, Eleanor Hutchins, Emily Bauer, Emily Lawrence, Fiona Hardingham, Greer Morrison, Joel Fotinos, Natalie Naudus, Sophie Amoss, Therese Plummer, Vivienne Leheny, and Xe Sands.

Belonging : a German reckons with history and home / Nora Krug.
Nora Krug investigates the hidden truths of her family's wartime history in Nazi Germany. Nora Krug was born decades after the fall of the Nazi regime, but the Second World War cast a long shadow over her childhood and youth in the city of Karlsruhe, Germany. Yet she knew little about her own family's involvement; though all four grandparents lived through the war, they never spoke of it. After twelve years in the US, Krug realizes that living abroad has only intensified her need to ask the questions she didn't dare to as a child. Returning to Germany, she visits archives, conducts research, and interviews family members, uncovering in the process the stories of her maternal grandfather, a driving teacher in Karlsruhe during the war, and her father's brother Franz-Karl, who died as a teenage SS soldier. In this extraordinary quest, Krug erases the boundaries between comics, scrapbooking, and collage as she endeavors to make sense of 20th-century history, the Holocaust, her German heritage, and her family's place in it all.

Deceiving the sky : inside Communist China's drive for global supremacy / Bill Gertz.

Deceiving the sky : inside Communist China's drive for global supremacy / Bill Gertz.
The United States' approach to China since the Communist regime in Beijing that began the period of reform and opening in the 1980s was based on a promise that trade and engagement with China would result in a peaceful, democratic state. Forty years later, the hope of producing a benign People's Republic of China utterly failed. The Communist Party of China deceived the West into believing that its system and the Party-ruled People's Liberation Army were peaceful and posed no threat. In fact, these misguided policies produced the emergence of a Twenty-first Century Evil Empire even more dangerous than a Cold War version in the Soviet Union. Successive American presidential administrations were fooled by ill-advised pro-China policymakers, intelligence analysts, and business leaders who facilitated the rise not of a peaceful China but of a threatening and expansionist nuclear-armed communist dictatorship focused on a single overriding strategic objective: weakening and destroying the United States of America. Defeating the United States is the first step for China's current rulers in achieving global supremacy under a new world order based on an ideology of Communism with Chinese characteristics. Deceiving the Sky: Inside Communist China's Drive for Global Supremacy details the failure to understand the nature and activities of the dangers posed by China and what the United States can do in taking needed steps to counter the threats.

For years, unbeknownst to his wife and teenage daughter, Martin Reese has been illegally buying police files on serial killers and obsessively studying them, using them as guides to find the missing bodies of victims. He doesn't take any souvenirs, just photos that he stores in an old laptop, and then he turns in the results anonymously. Martin sees his work as a public service, a righting of wrongs. Detective Sandra Whittal sees the situation differently. On a meteoric rise in police ranks due to her case‑closing efficiency, Whittal is suspicious of the mysterious source she calls the Finder, especially since he keeps leading the police right to the bodies. How can he know where all these bodies are located if he's not the one putting them there? On his latest dig, Martin searches for the first kill of Jason Shurn, the early 1990s murderer who may have been responsible for the disappearance of his wife's sister. But when he arrives at the site, he finds more than just bones. There's a freshly killed body-a young and missing Seattle woman-lying there. Someone else knew where Jason Shurn left the corpses of his victims...and that someone isn't happy that Martin has been going around digging up his work. And when a crooked cop with a tenuous tie to Martin vanishes, Whittal begins to zero in on the Finder. A wickedly smart thriller that manages to be both chilling and wry (Amy Stuart, bestselling author of Still Mine), Find You in the Dark will haunt you long after you turn the final page.

John Adams under fire : the founding father's fight for justice in the Boston Massacre murder trial / Dan Abrams and David Fisher.
An eye-opening story of America on the edge of revolution, revealing the life of young John Adams and his key role in the trial of the Boston Massacre. History remembers John Adams as a Founding Father and our country's second president. But in the tense years before the American Revolution, he was still just a lawyer, fighting for justice in one of the most explosive murder trials of the era. On the night of March 5, 1770, shots were fired by British soldiers on the streets of Boston, killing five civilians. The Boston Massacre has often been called the first shots of the American Revolution. As John Adams would later remember, 'On that night the formation of American independence was born.' Yet when the British soldiers faced trial, the young lawyer Adams was determined that they receive a fair one. He volunteered to represent them, keeping the peace in a powder keg of a colony, and in the process created some of the foundations of what would become United States law. In this book, bestselling authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher draw on the trial transcript, using Adams's own words to transport readers to colonial Boston, a city roiling with rebellion, where British military forces and American colonists lived side by side, waiting for the spark that would start a war.

Set in Iran and New York City, this book tells the story of Hamid Mozaffarian, who is as alienated from himself as he is from the world around him.

Tucked in his pocket throughout the trip, the ashes propel him into a first-person excavation-full of mordant wit and bitter memory-of a lifetime of betrayal and prompt him to trace his own evolution from a perceptive boy in love with marbles to a man who, on seeing his own reflection, is startled to encounter a beautiful, indignant thug. As he reconnects with his brother and others living in exile, Hamid is forced to reckon with his past, with the insidious nature of violence, and with his entrenchment in a system that, for decades, ensnared him.

Miracle Creek /  Angie Kim.
This program includes a bonus interview with the author and original music composed and performed by Steve Draughn. A thrilling debut about how far we'll go to protect our families-and our deepest secrets.My husband asked me to lie. Not a big lie. He probably didn't even consider it a lie, and neither did I, at first... In rural Virginia, Young and Pak Yoo run an experimental medical treatment device known as the Miracle Submarine-a pressurized oxygen chamber that patients enter for therapeutic dives with the hopes of curing issues like autism or infertility. But when the Miracle Submarine mysteriously explodes, killing two people, a dramatic murder trial upends the Yoos' small community. Who or what caused the explosion? Was it the mother of one of the patients, who claimed to be sick that day but was smoking down by the creek? Or was it Young and Pak themselves, hoping to cash in on a big insurance payment and send their daughter to college? The ensuing trial uncovers unimaginable secrets from that night-trysts in the woods, mysterious notes, child-abuse charges-as well as tense rivalries and alliances among a group of people driven to extraordinary degrees of desperation and sacrifice. Angie Kim's Miracle Creek is a thoroughly contemporary take on the courtroom drama, drawing on the author's own life as a Korean immigrant, former trial lawyer, and mother of a real-life submarine patient. Both a compelling page-turner and an excavation of identity and the desire for connection, Miracle Creek is a brilliant, empathetic debut from an exciting new voice.

Step up : how to live with courage and become an everyday leader / Ash Beckham.

A New Vision of Inclusive Leadership What makes someone a leader? Someone you vote for, work for, or listen to for their expertise? With Step Up, equality advocate Ash Beckham challenges us to embrace a different vision of leadership-to stop focusing on external authorities and start reclaiming our own ability to create change. What we need most are everyday leaders, she writes. We need people to step up and be the change they wish to see in the world. Anyone can do it. You can do it. Whether your path involves activism, political engagement, or simply being a positive voice in your workplace, home, and community, Beckham's Step Up provides essential guidance on cultivating the eight pillars of everyday leadership: - Empathy-the art of relating to others with compassion for our shared humanity, regardless of whether we agree - Responsibility-how we can raise our awareness and consciously choose to behave in ways that heal instead of harm - Courage-understanding the nature of fear so we can move beyond our comfort zone one step at a time - Grace-how keeping our higher purpose always in sight helps us stop reacting with fear or anger - Individuality-learning to value and celebrate our uniqueness, including the parts of ourselves we often reject - Humility-ways to keep the ego in check and open the door to honest, collaborative relationships - Patience-guidance for disarming our tendency to rush ahead so we can act with greater deliberation and forethought - Authenticity-how we can embody our deepest truths and lead by example in any situation For each pillar, Beckham shares engaging stories of her own journey from isolation and anger to a place of greater openness and connection-supported by scientific research and everyday practices to mindfully change the way you relate to yourself and the people in your life. Step Up is a powerful call to action-to speak when it feels easier to be silent, to do good without being self-righteous, and to create a world of inclusion where everyone has a voice and everyone belongs. Discover the eight pillars of everyday leadership to make a positive impact in your life, community, workplace, and more Who will step up and change the course of a world that is so full of anger and conflict? Not elected officials or media personalities, but what equality advocate Ash Beckham calls everyday leaders-including you. We are moms and teachers and executives and imams, she says. Before we start changing the external world, we need to commit to living fully and completely as our most authentic selves. In Step Up, Beckham presents eight pillars to become an everyday leader-Empathy, Responsibility, Courage, Grace, Individuality, Humility, Patience, and Authenticity. For each pillar, she shares engaging stories of her own journey from isolation and anger to a place of greater openness and connection. She then provides eye-opening research on what it takes to build these essential qualities, coupled with practices to mindfully change the way you relate to yourself and the people in your life. We all have closets, says Beckham. We in the LGBTQ community do not have the closet market cornered. Though our closets may feel safe, we only become whole and effective when we stop hiding from ourselves and others. Step Up is a powerful call to action-to speak when it feels easier to be silent, to do good without being self-righteous, and to create a world of inclusion where everyone has a voice.

In the 2011 bestseller Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, an economist and psychologist, writes about the way humans make decisions and judgements in a complex world. One of the most renowned economic scholars, his work is also commonly used in sectors such as psychology and even policy making. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman helpfully points out the errors in thinking that people commonly have and fall victim to. He frames them as a series of illusions in a well-organized, direct fashion. Through this work, he enables readers to better make decisions and resist any harmful proclivities they may have. Kahneman gives heaps of statistical information, as well as coloring this information with various vignettes, showcasing different studies done by him and other researchers who inspired or furthered his work. Crucially, he discusses the roles of two systems in our mind, the fast and the slow brain, System 1 and 2, respectively. These two systems often fail us, leading us to make decisions based on our intuition rather than all the information in front of us; nevertheless, they stem from evolutionary measures meant to keep us safe, and by understanding how these thoughts work, we can learn how to make stronger decisions.

Now, more than fifteen years later, their lives are drastically different-and Hannah is married to Graham. When he's murdered by a masked intruder at the couple's East Hampton beach house, Hannah reluctantly allows her teenaged stepson's biological mother-her estranged sister, Nicole-back into her life. But when the police begin to treat Ian as a suspect in his father's death, the two sisters are forced to unite . . . and to confront the truth behind family secrets they have tried to bury in the past.

The eighth girl : a novel / Maxine Mei-Fung Chung.
In this unsettling, seductive psychological thriller, a young woman with multiple personalities is drawn into London's hellish underworld when she becomes entangled with a man who has an abominable secret, for fans of Caroline Kepnes and Clare Mackintosh. One woman, multiple personas. But which one is telling the truth? Beautiful. Damaged. Destructive. Meet Alexa Wú, a brilliant yet darkly self-aware young woman whose chaotic life is manipulated and controlled by a series of alternate personalities. Only three people know about their existence: her shrink, Daniel; her stepmother, Anna; and her enigmatic best friend, Ella. The perfect trio of trust. When Ella gets a job at a high-end gentleman's club, she catches the attention of its shark-like owner and is gradually drawn into his inner circle. As Alexa's world becomes intimately entangled with Ella's, she soon finds herself the unwitting keeper of a nightmarish secret. With no one to turn to and lives at stake, she follows Ella into London's cruel underbelly on a daring rescue mission. Threatened and vulnerable, Alexa will discover whether her multiple personalities are her greatest asset, or her most dangerous obstacle. Electrifying and breathlessly compulsive, The Eighth Girl is an omnivorous examination of life with mental illness and the acute trauma of life in a misogynist world. With bingeable prose and a clinician's expertise, Chung's psychological debut deftly navigates the swirling confluence of identity, innocence, and the impossible fracturing weights that young women are forced to carry, causing us to question: Does the truth lead to self-discovery, or self-destruction?


The enneagram / Helen Palmer.

The enneagram /  Helen Palmer.
We do not all experience the world or each other in the same way. The joys and sorrows of relationship and career can be understood only through the eyes of the beholder. On Helen Palmer's The Enneagram, you will learn a vital system of sacred psychology capable of stunning insights into our lives and loves. The enneagram is one of the world's oldest models for understanding how humans relate to each other and the divine. In different forms, Buddhists, Sufis, and Christians have used it for many centuries. Today we use it, not only as a tool for greater self-knowing, but also to see how loved ones, coworkers, and others face the difficulties in life. It is a way of sacred wisdom that can help you break out of your trance-like state of limited awareness and open to the gifts of the spirit. Derived from the Greek words ennea (nine) and gram (model), the term refers to the nine central passions that recur in spiritual traditions. The Enneagram allows you to identify which type of passion dominates your personality. This is your key to overcoming the veil of illusion that limits your perception to only one-ninth of reality. Join this eminent scholar and teacher of the enneagram for more than eight hours of in-depth instruction. Topics include:The nine personality typesHistory and originsHow to recognize your typeThe role of attention and awareness in typeHow your type can give you spiritual directionDynamics of type interaction, and much moreThere is no more vigorous, useful model of human psychology than this sacred way of seeing into yourself and through the eyes of others.Highlights:Origins of the EnneagramSpiritual tradition and the EnneagramThe oral tradition of the systemMeditation practice and the EnneagramThe nine passions and the nine virtuesPersonality and the False Self How psychological defenses emergeThe teachings of GurdjieffThe three triads: anger (self-forgetting), feeling, and fearHow the nine types react under stressReactions when feeling secure and lovedThe Enneagram sub-types: sexual, social, and self-survivalIntimate relationships and the nine typesKeys to typing yourselfHow to avoid mis-typing othersSpiritual conversion of habit energyTypes, awareness, and attentionGender differences among typesDetailed descriptions of each type, including strengths, weaknesses, and potentialsAwakening the Inner Observer Building energy through meditation practice and much, much more

How do you live a full life? Perhaps the better question is, how do you really live when life throws you sucker punches, when you face obstacles that seem to snuff out your faith, when you lose something or someone precious to you? In The Fight to Flourish, Jennie Lusko encourages women to suit up and thrive, not just in the dailies of monotony and routine but even in the most desolate of places. Using the backdrop of her second-born daughter Lenya's passing into heaven five days before Christmas in 2012, Jennie invites readers to embrace whatever destination they've landed. She teaches how, through the good and the bad, they can learn to grow, be strong, draw near to God, and be a blessing to others. It is in this sacred space of pain and promise that women can begin to flourish.

How do you confront a threat that is hiding in plain sight?

Now Craig is called to a crime scene that matches the killer's methods, and news breaks that the Fireman has escaped prison. Amid a citywide manhunt, Kieran and Craig need to untangle a web of deceit, privilege and greed. They begin to suspect there is a new threat stalking the streets of Manhattan. Either those closest to the killer have been drawn into his evil, or someone is using another man's madness and cruelty to disguise their crimes. When their investigation brings the danger right to the doorstep of Finnegan's Pub, Kieran and Craig will have to be smarter and bolder than ever before, because this time it's personal, and they have everything to lose.

For readers of The Alice Network and The Lost Girls of Paris, an immersive, heart-pounding debut about a German heiress on the run in post-World War II Germany. Clara Falkenberg, once Germany's most eligible and lauded heiress, earned the nickname the Iron Fräulein during World War II for her role operating her family's ironworks empire. It's been nearly two years since the war ended and she's left with nothing but a false identification card and a series of burning questions about her family's past. With nowhere else to run to, she decides to return home and take refuge with her dear friend, Elisa. Narrowly escaping a near-disastrous interrogation by a British officer who's hell-bent on arresting her for war crimes, she arrives home to discover the city in ruins, and Elisa missing. As Clara begins tracking down Elisa, she encounters Jakob, a charismatic young man working on the black market, who, for his own reasons, is also searching for Elisa. Clara and Jakob soon discover how they might help each other-if only they can stay ahead of the officer determined to make Clara answer for her actions during the war. Propulsive, meticulously researched, and action-fueled, The Remaking of Clara Falkenberg is a mesmerizing page-turner that questions the meaning of justice and morality, deftly shining the spotlight on the often-overlooked perspective of Germans who were caught in the crossfire of the Nazi regime and had nowhere to turn.

Kate English's mother, Lily Michaels, is dead, the victim of a terrifying attack in her tony suburban Baltimore home. Barely keeping it together for the sake of her family, Kate is surprised and grateful to see Blaire Barrington, her old high school BFF, at the funeral. Thick as thieves from middle school through college graduation, the girls fell out on the morning of Kate's wedding to the confident, arrogant Simon English nearly fifteen years before. Almost instantly, the years of separation fall away, and Kate and Blaire slip comfortably back into their old roles. Kate, now a prominent heart surgeon, is the accomplished, anxious achiever, while Blaire, a bestselling mystery author, serves as her fierce defender against all enemies. And now more than ever, Kate needs Blaire's loving protection. Lily's killer is still out there . . . and has begun taunting Kate with threatening notes sometimes accompanied by gruesome clues. Without any solid leads, the police investigation has stalled. As the messages become increasingly macabre, Blaire decides to take matters into her own hands, alienating friends and relatives with her relentless, almost accusatory questions. As Blaire pushes further, the danger for those around her-including the increasingly unstable Kate-grows. But will her relentless quest for the truth push her-and Kate-over the edge?

The library of legends : a novel / Janie Chang.
From the author of Three Souls and Dragon Springs Road comes a captivating historical novel - the third in a loosely connected trilogy - in which a young woman travels across China with a convoy of student refugees, fleeing the hostilities of a brutal war with Japan. Myths are the darkest and brightest incarnations of who we are.... China, 1937: When Japanese bombs begin falling on the city of Nanking, 19-year-old Hu Lian and her classmates at Minghua University are ordered to flee. Lian and a convoy of more than 100 students, faculty, and staff must walk 1,000 miles to the safety of China's western provinces, a journey marred by hunger, cold, and the constant threat of aerial attack. And it is not just the student refugees who are at risk: Lian and her classmates have been entrusted with a priceless treasure, a 500-year-old collection of myths and folklore known as the Library of Legends. Her family's past has made Lian wary of forming attachments, but the students' common duty to safeguard the Library of Legends forms unexpected bonds. Lian finds friendship and a cautious romance with the handsome and wealthy Liu Shaoming. But after one classmate is murdered and another arrested, Lian realizes she must escape from the convoy before a family secret puts her in danger. Accompanied by Shao and the enigmatic maidservant Sparrow, Lian makes her way to Shanghai, hoping to reunite with her mother. On the journey, Lian learns of the connection between her two companions and a tale from the Library of Legends, The Willow Star and the Prince. Learning Shao and Sparrow's true identities compels Lian to confront her feelings for Shao. But there are broader consequences, too, for as the ancient books travel across China, they awaken immortals and guardian spirits to embark on an exodus of their own, one that changes the country's fate forever. Based on true events, rich in Chinese history and lore, The Library of Legends is both an illuminating exploration of China's recent past and an evocative tale of love, sacrifice, and the extraordinary power of storytelling.

Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town's smooth-talking ladies' man Dylan Taylor: She'll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he'll help her answer the reader letters. Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can't risk getting hurt now. The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister's antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.

The vanishing girl : an original novel.
Popular Daphne Blake and über-nerd Velma Dinkley are not friends. They aren't enemies either, but they don't have any reason to speak to each other, and that's how they prefer it. The two girls grew up together - they'd been best friends since pre-K - but when they hit middle school, Daphne dropped Velma and never looked back. These days, Daphne's deep in the popular crowd, daughter of the richest family in town, while Velma's an outsider, hiding from the world behind her thick glasses. When they run into each other in the halls of Crystal Cove High, they look the other way. But then Daphne's best friend, Marcy - who happens to be Velma's cousin - goes missing. A century ago, there was a wave of disappearances in Crystal Cove, and many local people believe that supernatural forces were behind it. Now the whole town believes those same forces are back . . . and up to no good. Daphne and Velma may be the only ones who can solve the mystery and save Marcy-if they can trust each other enough to try. Especially since the truth might be stranger-and scarier-than either girl can imagine . .

The wastes / Alexey Osadchuk.

The wastes /  Alexey Osadchuk.
Eric has survived where people much stronger than him have found their deaths. And not just that: he's managed to activate his magic supply, tame one of the most dangerous dungeon monsters, find the ancient city of monster hunters, and rescue Jay, the girl abandoned by the scouts in Gulper's lair. He left the Dungeons of the Crooked Mountains behind him. Now his path leads him to Orchus, where our freshly-minted mage intends to finally free himself of his debt-repayment oath. But as soon as Eric and Jay descend into the valley, they discover that the local barons have been attacked by young Corwin's men who have swept through their neighbors' estates, pillaging and plundering. This makes Eric's task all the more difficult: he has to return to his home city without ending up in his enemies' clutches. You'd think his natural cautiousness and the acute instincts of his pet Gorgie would make this journey a walk in the park-but fickle Lady Luck has her own ideas . . . Once again Eric is being pulled into a bloody vortex of dangers.

Truth : a brief history of total bullsh*t / Tom Phillips.

Truth : a brief history of total bullsh*t / Tom Phillips.
This is a book about TRUTH-and all the ways we try to avoid it. We live in a post-truth world, we're told. But was there ever really a golden age of truth-telling? Or have people been lying, fibbing and just plain bullsh*tting since the beginning of time? Tom Phillips, editor of a leading independent fact-checking organization, deals with this question every day. In Truth, he tells the story of how we humans have spent history lying to each other-and ourselves-about everything from business to politics to plain old geography. Along the way, he chronicles the world's oldest customer service complaint, the Great Moon Hoax of 1835 and the surprisingly dishonest career of Benjamin Franklin. Sharp, witty and with a clear-eyed view of humanity's checkered past, Truth reveals why people lie-and how we can cut through the bullsh*t.

When all is said / Anne Griffin.

When all is said /  Anne Griffin.
I'm here to remember-all that I have been and all that I will never be again. If you had to pick five people to sum up your life, who would they be? If you were to raise a glass to each of them, what would you say? And what would you learn about yourself, when all is said?

Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story. Over the course of this evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Through these stories - of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice - the life of one man will be powerful and poignantly laid bare. Beautifully heart-warming and powerfully felt, the voice of Maurice Hannigan will stay with you long after all is said and done.


Why did I come into this room? / Joan Lunden.

Why did I come into this room? /  Joan Lunden.
In her most candid and revealing book yet, acclaimed broadcast journalist and Baby Boomer Joan Lunden delves into the various phases of aging that leave many feeling uncomfortable, confused, and on edge. In her hilarious book, Lunden takes the dull and depressing out of aging, replacing it with wit and humor. After all, laughing is better than crying-unless it makes you pee! Funny, captivating, and raw, no topic is off limits. Lunden goes where others fear to tread, openly talking about wrinkles and age spots (which Lunden insists are sunspots), expanding waistlines (no, you didn't shrink your jeans), diminished energy (my get-up-and-go got up and went), weak pelvic floors (yes, we're talking about leaking), hot flashes (they suck), disrupted sleep (the morning host is an expert on lack of sleep), changes in sex drive (oh yeah, she goes there), ageism (it exists and it pisses us off), and yes, the real reasons we suddenly find ourselves always searching for those car keys! Through her poignant and often laugh out loud funny personal experiences, Lunden candidly shares her anxieties and breakthroughs. Why Did I Come into This Room? also explores the science of aging, including how it impacts the body and brain, while dispelling myths and revealing useful options to stave off the aging process as long as possible.


Why we swim / Bonnie Tsui.

Why we swim /  Bonnie Tsui.
Humans, unlike other animals that are drawn to water, are not natural-born swimmers. We must be taught. Our evolutionary ancestors learned for survival; now in the twenty-first century, we swim in freezing Arctic waters and piranha-infested rivers to test our limits. Swimming is an introspective and silent sport in a chaotic and noisy age; it's therapeutic for both the mind and body; and it's an adventurous way to get from point A to point B. It's also one route to that elusive, ecstatic state of flow. These reasons, among many others, make swimming one of the most popular activities in the world. Why We Swim is propelled by stories of Olympic champions, a Baghdad swim club that meets in Saddam Hussein's palace pool, modern-day Japanese samurai swimmers, and even an Icelandic fisherman who improbably survives a wintry six-hour swim after a shipwreck. New York Times contributor Bonnie Tsui, a swimmer herself, dives into the deep, from the San Francisco Bay to the South China Sea, investigating what it is about water-despite its dangers-that seduces us, tempting us to come back to it again and again.

Q: How does a shanghaied computer geek conquer all the forces of Darkness and win the love of the most beautiful witch in the world? A: By transforming himself from a demon programmer into a programmer of demons!

X-Men: codename Wolverine.

X-Men: codename Wolverine.
Wolverine. Sabretooth. Silver Fox. Wraith. Maverick. Together, they were Team X, the best covert-ops team NATO had to offer. But a mission to retrieve a disk from a pair of Soviet agents proved to be more trouble than they bargained for. A Soviet operative codenamed the Black Widow, a mutant Interpol Officer named Sean Cassidy, and shape-changing freelance spy Mystique were also all after the disk. Years later, Wolverine is a valued member of the uncanny X-Men. The Black Widow defected and became a respected American super hero. Cassidy is Banshee, mentor to the next generation of young mutants. Mystique and Sabretooth are reluctant members of X-Factor, the government strike force. Wraith is still a covert-ops agent. Silver Fox is dead, and Maverick is dying of the Legacy Virus. Each of them is kidnapped, one by one-starting with Sabretooth, by far the deadliest member of the former Team X. Wolverine must find out the terrible secret from that old mission-a secret that has remained hidden for years and could spell death for all of them!

Aghbalou : the source of water.

Water is essential for food security and livelihood, especially for the millions of rural poor who rely on agriculture. Aghbalou combines a local story of struggle with a global call to action against the growing challenge of sustaining water supplies in the face of an increasingly hostile climate. Half of Morocco's population is employed in agriculture and therefore dependent upon groundwater for both food and employment. The Todgha Valley in Southern Morocco is one of the driest habitats on earth. Yet, residents have successfully sustained their livelihoods and agriculture for centuries through an ancient system of underground channels. But today these age-old communities face new threats and challenges from groundwater over-extraction, population growth, and climate change, among others. The film also shows how new technologies can present unintended problems for the rural poor. When motorized water pumps were introduced to the region, they provided more water, but affected the balance of aquifers and eventually water wasn't as easy to reach as it once had been, plus the cost was too high for poorer farmers. Featuring local farmers from the Todgha Valley and international experts, Aghbalou presents potential strategies to adapt to growing water scarcity and insure a secure future for the rural poor.

Breaking point.

One of the worst ecological disaster in U.S. history is rapidly approaching, a casualty of the drought and water wars in the Southwest. California's largest lake - the Salton Sea in the Sonoran desert - is disappearing. As Breaking Point reveals, large swaths of lake bed are already exposed and salt levels drastically increased due to mandated water transfers to metropolitan areas along the California coast and other factors that limit water inflow. If no action is taken in the next few years, rising salinity will cause the deaths of 100 million fish, eliminating the main food source for hundreds of species of migratory birds -- the second-greatest diversity of bird species in the United States. The National Audubon Society considers the Salton Sea a bird site of global significance. There would also be substantial human impact. After years of agricultural runoff into the Sea, the lakebed is toxic, with high levels of arsenic, selenium and traces of the pesticide DDT. As the lake recedes, massive toxic dust storms will threaten the health of millions of people living in surrounding communities, including as far away as Los Angeles. Breaking Point mixes dramatic aerial images of the lake and close-ups of its shores with commentary from scientists, government officials and local residents to present the history of the Salton Sea, the missed opportunities that have plagued the Sea for decades, and the current options for saving it, which will likely cost billions of dollars. The Salton Sea has reached its breaking point, and time is running out.

Drying for freedom.

Drying For Freedom travels from America's clothesline-free yards to India's open-air laundromats to explore how the electric dream was marketed, without regard for its environmental and other impacts. In post-war America, the push to Live Better Electrically, with Ronald Reagan as spokesman, was symbolized by the selling of energy hungry clothes dryers to replace the centuries-old zero energy outdoor clothesline. With archival TV ads and commentary, the film looks at how consumer demand was created for an electric utopia, where the dryer became a necessity and the clothesline became an ugly thing of the past. Convenience trumped consequence, as energy consumption rose rapidly, with significant impacts on the environment - and personal freedom. Sixty years later, more than 50 million Americans live in communities where energy efficient clotheslines are banned as unsightly. But line-drying activist Alexander Lee has campaigned since 1997 across America for the Right to Dry, turning the age-old clothesline into a powerful symbol for efforts to reduce carbon emissions. Drying For Freedom begins with the symbolic battle over the clothesline, but expands to the bigger potential global consequences of increasing energy usage in developing countries. In India, we witness how the electric dream is now being marketed there, with the goal of bringing electricity to the 400 million Indian citizens now living without it. But will it be done in India, and in other countries, in a way that contributes to climate change, or will it be done in a different way? The future of our planet may hang in the balance.

From cable television to the computer, from Facebook to Twitter, Mr. Black rages about the prison we've insanely created for ourselves. He snarls at the country's failure to find alternative energy sources while creating cell phones out of the realm of science fiction. He mauls our nation's leaders for their laughably inept handling of social security and health care-and failing to provide help on any level whatsoever. As Mr. Black puts it, What are you going to do when the Democrats are dumb, the Republicans are stupid and the Tea Party doesn't even know what day it is? He takes what makes us crazy and makes it funny. It's a night of live comedy you won't forget... but if you do, it's probably because you're taking a drug that lowers your cholesterol.

Passeport pour le monde : Utah.

L'Utah est reconnu pour sa diversité géologique contrastante qui fait le bonheur des touristes et des sportifs, des skieurs aux adeptes de vélo de montagne. D'un cté, de nombreux sommets enneigés entourent la capitale Salt Lake City, elle qui a été l'htesse des Jeux olympiques d'hiver de 2002. De l'autre, des déserts arides font place à des formations rocheuses façonnées de façon spectaculaire par le temps. Les parcs nationaux d'Arches et de Bryce ne sont que deux exemples de ces tableaux surréels formés de flèches de calcaire aux teintes ocre, roses et blanches. Qui n'a d'ailleurs pas rêvé du Far West américain à la vue de Monument Valley? Toutefois, au-delà de ses contrastes naturels, l'Utah demeure passablement uniforme avec une population à forte majorité urbaine et de confession mormone.

Pink boy.

Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard presents the aftermath of the first atomic bomb through the remarkable drawings and stories of surviving Japanese school children who were part of an extraordinary, compassionate exchange with their American counterparts after the war. In 1995, a parishioner of the All Souls Church in Washington, D.C., discovered a long-forgotten box containing dozens of colorful drawings made by Japanese children from the Honkawa Elementary School in Hiroshima just two years after their city was destroyed. The surprisingly hopeful drawings were created and sent to the church nearly 50 years earlier in appreciation for much-needed school supplies received as part of the church's post-war humanitarian efforts. The Honkawa school was just 1100 feet from ground zero on August 6, 1945. Nearly 400 children died in the schoolyard that fateful morning. Surviving students and teachers describe the horror of that day and reflect on their difficult lives amidst the rubble of their decimated city, as well as the hope they shared through their art. Classes resumed soon after in the window-less concrete shell of the remaining Honkawa school building to provide some sense of normalcy. The film features recently found archival footage that shows what life was like in the weeks and months after the bomb fell and how Hiroshima gradually recovered. The rediscovered drawings were restored by members of the All Souls Church, who several years later embarked on an emotional journey to Japan to exhibit the artwork at the Honkawa school and reunite the surviving artists for the first time with the drawings they created as children. The artists and church members reflect on the lessons that resulted from a compassionate exchange nearly 70 years ago between American and Japanese children following a bitter and devastating World War.

RFK in the land of apartheid : a ripple of hope.

Featuring never before seen archival footage, and interviews in South Africa and the United States, filmmakers Larry Shore and Tami Gold tell the little-known story of Senator Robert Kennedy's influential June 1966 visit to South Africa during the worst years of Apartheid. The film is a unique portrait of Senator Kennedy in action at an important moment in American and South African history. The filmmakers explore the visit through the sights and sounds of present day South Africa. Robert Kennedy's visit gave opponents of Apartheid -- both black and white -- hope and courage to challenge the Apartheid system at a time when they felt isolated and few in the outside world knew what was happening in South Africa. His visit also highlighted the parallels in the fight against racism in South Africa and in the United States, where Martin Luther King Jr., had linked the struggle for Civil Rights with the fight against Apartheid. RFK IN THE LAND OF APARTHEID follows Kennedy in South Africa during the five-day visit, including his famous Day of Affirmation speech at the University of Cape Town on June 6, 1966. The speech is generally considered to be the greatest speech of Robert Kennedy's career. One paragraph, featuring the ripple of hope, is among the most quoted in American politics and appears on Kennedy's gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery: It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. Another high point of the film is Kennedy's meeting with one of the unknown giants of South African and African history - the banned President of the African National Congress and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Chief Albert Luthuli, who was living under house arrest in a remote rural area. The film travels with RFK to Soweto, the largest black township, where he meets thousands of people and gives voice to Chief Luthuli's call for a free South Africa. The film includes interviews with those that accompanied or met with Kennedy on his trip, as well as with Edward Kennedy, and an original soundtrack by American musician Jason Moran. Robert Kennedy's actions and words in South Africa were important at the time for one other reason - he publicly challenged the dominant Cold War ideology that anti-Communism should be the only basis for determining American foreign policy, even if it meant supporting repressive regimes. Kennedy demonstrated how it was possible to promote human rights and democracy in an undemocratic society, while engaging in an honest discourse on America's own historical problems and successes. RFK IN THE LAND OF APARTHEID tells an important story that is relevant to the ongoing struggles for democracy, justice and human rights around the world today.

Rockin' the wall.

Rockin' the Wall is both an engaging history lesson about the Berlin Wall and life behind the Iron Curtain, and an entertaining exploration of the power of rock music as a force for social change and liberation. When the Berlin Wall went up in 1960, it became the worldwide symbol of communist oppression. While the Wall kept people in, it could not keep Western influences like rock music out. Through Voice of America and Radio Free Europe, rock music penetrated the Iron Curtain with messages of freedom and rebellion. Rockin' the Wall presents the history of the Berlin Wall through the experiences of well-known rock musicians and those who lived behind the wall. Among the rock musicians featured are Robby Krieger (The Doors), Mark Stein and Vinny Martell (Vanilla Fudge), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot), David Paich (Toto), Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets), and the group Mother's Finest who played in East Berlin just weeks before the Wall fell. People who lived behind the Iron Curtain in several countries describe what their lives were like and how rock music provided them an important lifeline and inspiration -- giving them hope and exposing the shortcomings of the communist system. The film includes historical footage of the famous speeches at the Berlin Wall by Presidents Ronald Reagan and John Kennedy, as well as interviews with former government officials and with European rocker Leslie Mandoki who recalls being visited by former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to discuss the power of music. Features original music written for the film, as well as live music from several of the groups in the film.

The egotistical trapeze artist Isabella reminds him that he doesn't even have enough to pay his performers because he spends so much on Flora's upkeep. So Henry makes the tough decision to have Flora euthanized. Dawn is devastated. She says she can't be there when it happens so Henry buys her a train ticket to the home of a nearby aunt. Dawn gets on the train but gets off again before it departs. She returns to the circus and sneaks Flora out of her tent commencing their journey to the preserve. Dawn's Aunt calls Henry to say Dawn wasn't on the train. Henry finds Flora's tent empty. He searches the town where the circus is camped but there's no sign of them. He calls Dawn leaving a voicemail message promising to keep Flora until they find a home for her. Isabella feels guilty for encouraging Henry to euthanize Flora.

After eating some of the food Sebastian stole Dawn tells him goodbye. But Sebastian convinces her he can help and she warily agrees to let him journey with them for a short time. Isabella points out to Henry that even if Dawn and Flora make it to the preserve they'll be turned away since they won't have the two hundred thousand dollar sponsorship fee. Sebastian texts Fernando that he's found the lost girl and her elephant and says he'll lead them to the town of Sabinas where he and Fernando can collect the reward. But as they continue their journey Sebastian can't help but be captivated by Flora and Dawn. He splashes around in a pond with them then he and Dawn ride Flora through a field.

Shout gladi gladi.

Shout Gladi Gladi chronicles the maternal health care crisis in Africa, and the heroic efforts to rescue African women from a medical condition during childbirth that can turn them into reviled outcasts -- if they survive. About 2 million women and girls in Africa and parts of Asia are living with obstetric fistula, and many die from it every year. Those that survive are incontinent and shunned in their villages. Filmed in Kenya, Malawi and Sierra Leone, Shout Gladi Gladi presents the womens' stirring struggles, and profiles the quest of Ann Gloag, a former nurse, who drives a movement to save these vulnerable women from this preventable and treatable condition. The root causes of fistula are grinding poverty and the low status of women and girls, especially in developing countries. The condition was once prevalent in the U.S. and Europe, but was nearly eliminated by the early 20th century with improved maternal care. Gloag works to eradicate fistula by bringing proper maternal care and outreach programs to the poorest slums and most rural villages in Africa. More than simply repairing their health, Gloag's efforts also empower these women to determine their own futures. When the women are cured and ready to return to their homes, they join in a singing and dancing celebration called Gladi Gladi. No longer outcasts, they raise their voices in triumph. Shout Gladi Gladi illustrates how improving the health of women is fundamental to a strong and successful nation, especially in developing countries.

The battle of amfAR.

The Battle of amfAR presents the little-known story of how in the early days of the AIDS pandemic an unlikely alliance between a celebrity and a scientist helped changed the public perception of the disease and led to the search for a cure. Hollywood superstar Elizabeth Taylor and Sloan-Kettering research scientist Dr. Mathilde Krim joined forces to create greater AIDS awareness, fight government indifference and public stigma, and establish amFAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research -- the first national organization dedicated to mobilizing the scientific community in the fight against AIDS and for a cure. Concerned about a growing epidemic, Dr. Kim recruited Taylor to leverage her celebrity status to bring media attention to the disease and push for groundbreaking legislation. Taylor delivered powerful testimony before Congress and convinced President Reagan for the first time to publicly acknowledge the existence of HIV/AIDS as a worldwide pandemic. Dr. Krim focused on energizing the scientific community through her professional, political and social connections. The Battle of amfAR reconstructs the history of the early years of the AIDS crisis through the twin lenses of early medical concern and the dedicated activism of these two powerful women. The film also explains some of the challenging science of the disease and the important breakthroughs in AIDS research. The amFAR foundation's support for early stage research has altered the course of the epidemic and brought the world closer to finding a cure. In 1996, research partially funded by amfAR led to lifesaving new drugs that made HIV/AIDS treatable, a diagnosis that no longer guaranteed a death sentence. While the film traces the history of the search for an AIDS cure and offers hope, it also provides a dramatic reminder that the epidemic is far from over.
