I'm Still Here by Austin Channing Brown Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • REESE’S BOOK CLUB X HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK PICK • From a leading voice on racial justice, an eye-opening account of growing up Black, Christian, and female that exposes how white America’s love affair with “diversity” so often falls short of its ideals. “Austin Channing Brown introduces herself as a master memoirist. This book will break open hearts and minds.”—Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Untamed Austin Channing Brown’s first encounter with a racialized America came at age seven, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools and churches, Austin writes, “I had to learn what it means to love blackness,” a journey that led to a lifetime spent navigating America’s racial divide as a writer, speaker, and expert helping organizations practice genuine inclusion. In a time when nearly every institution (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claims to value diversity in its mission statement, Austin writes in breathtaking detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice. Her stories bear witness to the complexity of America’s social fabric—from Black Cleveland neighborhoods to private schools in the middle-class suburbs, from prison walls to the boardrooms at majority-white organizations. For readers who have engaged with America’s legacy on race through the writing of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Michael Eric Dyson, I’m Still Here is an illuminating look at how white, middle-class, Evangelicalism has participated in an era of rising racial hostility, inviting the reader to confront apathy, recognize God’s ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness—if we let it—can save us all.

Listen, I'm Still Here by Dorothy and Jack Farley Summary

Can you ever get over the loss of a 'soulmate'/loved one? By: Dorothy Farley Co-Author, (3) 5-Star Rated Books Listen, I'm Still Here – Part I I'm Always Here – Part II Everlasting "Love" – That Is – Part III The Continuation of Love from the Other Side Spirituality – Life After Death MY TRUTH: NO! NOT REALLY, AND CERTAINLY 'NOT COMPLETELY'! HOWEVER, with the passing of time (for me, now seven years since the transition of my beloved husband and soulmate, Jack Farley) one's understanding deepens, and the gradual 'acceptance' that we are all spirit beings with eternal life awakens within us, and "everything is as it should be," as Jack expresses from heaven. There is no ending at death – for life, living and learning continue on and on, in another dimension. Real growth and the reason for our being here on this Earth begins to shine forth for us and reveals life's profound meaning, and why we are here. We see more clearly the only two emotions, 'FEAR' or 'LOVE'. We begin opening our heart to more LOVE – LOVE for everything around us, LOVE for everyone we meet, for everything we see and do – and for ourselves. Let's not forget ourselves. We remember: "LOVE is all there is," affirmed by Jack. Staying in the LOVE VIBRATION is what I have learned to do, and this is where I can reach and connect with the responsive vibration of my beloved husband. Anyone can make this conversational connection – it is a matter of choice – our choice for our loved ones are always here around us in many forms; it is up to us to open our heart to the deepest, most pure LOVE, and in so doing elevate our vibration to reaching and hearing them. This is possible, if we make the choice and BELIEVE we can. Remember, loved ones are always 'living' in spirit form – for it is the perfection of our soul that we are seeking. Even when these TRUTHS are known, it is all easier said than done, but becomes more permanently possible as time goes by, and the light of a new future shines forth.

He's Still Here by Martin Howden Summary

Joaquin Phoenix is one of the most fascinating and controversial actors working in film, and ever since his Oscar-nominated performance as Johnny Cash in Walk the Line, is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. Yet in October 2008, during a press interview to promote the critically acclaimed Two Lovers, Phoenix made a shock announcement that he was to retire from acting and reinvent himself as a bona-fide hip-hop musician. The subsequent 'documentary', I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix, made by his brother in law Casey. In this in-depth biography, Martin Howden traces the rise of this unique actor, from his early career as a child-star, through to his Oscar nominated performance in Walk the Line, and subsequent "reinvention". Drawing upon numerous interviews and press reports, this biography documents Phoenix's life following the release of I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix and examines whether his new career is indeed a genuine reinvention or simply a hoax.

Still Here by Alexandra Jacobs Summary

One of The New Yorker's favorite nonfiction book of 2019 | A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice Named one of Vogue's "17 Books We Can't Wait to Read This Fall" "Compulsively readable . . . ravenously consuming . . . manna from heaven . . . If ever someone knew how to put a genuinely irresistible book together, it's Jacobs in Still Here." —Jeff Simon, The Buffalo News Still Here is the first full telling of Elaine Stritch’s life. Rollicking but intimate, it tracks one of Broadway’s great personalities from her upbringing in Detroit during the Great Depression to her fateful move to New York City, where she studied alongside Marlon Brando, Bea Arthur, and Harry Belafonte. We accompany Elaine through her jagged rise to fame, to Hollywood and London, and across her later years, when she enjoyed a stunning renaissance, punctuated by a turn on the popular television show 30 Rock. We explore the influential—and often fraught—collaborations she developed with Noël Coward, Tennessee Williams, and above all Stephen Sondheim, as well as her courageous yet flawed attempts to control a serious drinking problem. And we see the entertainer triumphing over personal turmoil with the development of her Tony Award–winning one-woman show, Elaine Stritch at Liberty, which established her as an emblem of spiky independence and Manhattan life for an entirely new generation of admirers. In Still Here, Alexandra Jacobs conveys the full force of Stritch’s sardonic wit and brassy charm while acknowledging her many dark complexities. Following years of meticulous research and interviews, this is a portrait of a powerful, vulnerable, honest, and humorous figure who continues to reverberate in the public consciousness.

Sergey’s best friend Vadik, a programmer ever in search of perfection, keeps trying on different women and different neighborhoods, all while pining for the one who got away. As Sergey develops his app—calling it "Virtual Grave," a program to preserve a person's online presence after death—a formidable debate begins in the group, spurring questions about the changing perception of death in the modern world and the future of our virtual selves. How do our online personas define us in our daily lives, and what will they say about us when we're gone? — New York Times Book Review, 100 Notable Books of 2016

We're Still Here by Jennifer M. Silva Summary

The economy has been brutal to American workers for several decades. The chance to give one's children a better life than one's own -- the promise at the heart of the American Dream -- is withering away. While onlookers assume those suffering in marginalized working-class communities will instinctively rise up, the 2016 election threw into sharp relief how little we know about how the working-class translate their grievances into politics. In We're Still Here, Jennifer M. Silva tells a deep, multi-generational story of pain, place, and politics that will endure long after the Trump administration. Drawing on over 100 interviews with black, white, and Latino working-class residents of a declining coal town in Pennsylvania, Silva reveals how the decline of the American Dream is lived and felt. The routines and rhythms of traditional working-class life such as manual labor, unions, marriage, church, and social clubs have diminished. In their place, she argues, individualized strategies for coping with pain, and finding personal redemption, have themselves become sources of political stimulus and reaction among the working class. Understanding how generations of Democratic voters come to reject the social safety net and often politics altogether requires moving beyond simple partisanship into a maze of addiction, joblessness, family disruption, violence, and trauma. Instead, Silva argues that we need to uncover the relationships, loyalties, longings, and moral visions that underlie and generate the civic and political disengagement of working-class people. We're Still Here provides powerful, on the ground evidence of the remaking of working-class identity and politics that will spark new tensions but also open up the possibility for shifting alliances and new possibilities.

I was furious.), she offers a reminder to those of us who sometimes hide in the car eating crackers that we do have the moxie to get back up and get back out. We can choose to live undaunted “in the moment” no matter what the moments hold, and lead vibrant, courageous, grace-filled lives.

Salvaged Pages by Zapruder, Alexandra Summary

This stirring collection of diaries written by young people, aged twelve to twenty-two years, during the Holocaust has been fully revised and updated.

The second paperback edition includes a new preface by Alexandra Zapruder examining the book’s history and impact. Simultaneously, an enhanced e-book incorporates a wealth of new content in a variety of media, including photographs of the writers and their families, images of the original diaries, artwork made by the writers, historical documents, glossary terms, maps, survivor testimony (some available for the first time), and video of the author teaching key passages.

Unashamed by Lecrae Moore Summary

If you live for people's acceptance, you'll die from their rejection. Two-time Grammy winning rap artist, Lecrae, learned this lesson through more than his share of adversity—childhood abuse, drugs and alcoholism, a stint in rehab, an abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Along the way, Lecrae attained an unwavering faith in Jesus and began looking to God for affirmation. Now as a chart-topping industry anomaly, he has learned to ignore the haters and make peace with his craft. The rap artist holds nothing back as he divulges the most sensitive details of his life, answers his critics, shares intimate handwritten journal entries, and powerfully models how to be a Christian in a secular age. This is the story of one man's journey to faith and freedom. *Cover/Interior design by Alex Medina, photography by Mary Caroline Mann
