Summary:

Late at night Ella watches her elderly father on the veranda, raging at the South African night sky. Caught between her mother's longing for her lost Dutch home, and her father's shattering wartime experiences in the Indian Ocean, Ella fights hard to understand where she fits into their lives and how to belong in a divided country. Her one secret joy is her growing love for the African gardener, Phineas. Years later, seeking political refuge in Europe, Ella discovers her father never registered her birth. Now she must confront her father's ghosts, and create a future for herself. The Shouting in the Dark is Ella's story of surviving childhood and mapping new belonging. This Australian edition includes a new preface by the author, an interview that sets the book in relation to other stories of migration in the south, and selected writing by Elleke Boehmer about living in, navigating, and gravitating back to the southern hemisphere.

Summary:

John Bramblitt makes his living as a visual artist. His works have been sold in over twenty different countries, and he’s received three Presidential Service awards for the art workshops he teaches. He’s painted portraits of skateboarder Tony Hawk and blues legend Pops Carter. He’s given talks about his art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and there has even been a documentary made about him. And . . . he’s blind. When Bramblitt was declared legally blind ten years ago due to complications with epilepsy, his hopes of becoming a creative writing teacher were shattered and he sunk into a deep depression. He felt disconnected from family and friends, alienated and alone. But then something amazing happened--he discovered painting. He learned to distinguish between different colored paints by feeling their textures with his fingers. He taught himself how to paint using raised lines to help him find his way around the canvas, and through something called haptic visualization, which enables him to "see" his subjects through touch. He now paints amazingly lifelike portraits of people he's never seen--including his wife and son. Shouting in the Dark is the story of Bramblitt's life, his journey navigating through this new territory of blindness, and how he ultimately rekindles his joy, passion, and relationships through art.

Summary:

Danny Smith has been at the forefront of human rights campaigning for over twenty-five years. He has fought for many people, providing a voice for the voiceless and a light in the darkness - this is his story. Shouting into the Silence is fast-moving and inspirational. Danny takes the reader to some of the darkest places on Earth and uncovers many of the 21st century’s most shameful secrets, including child sex slavery, human trafficking, the killing of street children and the orphanages of China. As the head of Jubilee Campaign, he posed as a sex tourist to get the UK laws on child abuse changed; he went to Moscow to fight for the Siberian Seven, and to the streets of India, to break the cycle that had meant that the children of prostitutes would always end up in the same trade. Shouting into the Silence is the story of one man’s battle on behalf of children at risk.

Summary:

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Fish in a Tree comes a compelling story about perspective and learning to love the family you have. Delsie loves tracking the weather--lately, though, it seems the squalls are in her own life. She's always lived with her kindhearted Grammy, but now she's looking at their life with new eyes and wishing she could have a "regular family." Delsie observes other changes in the air, too--the most painful being a friend who's outgrown her. Luckily, she has neighbors with strong shoulders to support her, and Ronan, a new friend who is caring and courageous but also troubled by the losses he's endured. As Ronan and Delsie traipse around Cape Cod on their adventures, they both learn what it means to be angry versus sad, broken versus whole, and abandoned versus loved. And that, together, they can weather any storm.

Summary:

Israel: Stripped Bare is a book about the brutal reality of Israels existence, written from a perspective of an Arab-Jew. Some of these articles were already published in Sephardic Heritage Update, and some have been added over the years. It becomes crucial to see Israels existence through the eyes of the Levantine prison, outside of the European perspective of the Jewish State. The book provokes serious ideas and thoughts concerning the future relationship between Arabs and Jews in the Middle East and the possible contribution of Jews born in Arab and Muslim countries to the future cultural symbiosis of this historical crossroads.

Summary:

My disregard for Him finally caught up with me; my actions which I had continuously boasted about finally betrayed me, bringing with it dire consequences. I wobbled as I made my way across the road to a nearby bus stop. With every step I took, I could feel the pain ripping through my left ribcage as thick blood gushed out through the hole in my T-shirt where the knife had pierced through. I could feel whatever strength left in my body draining away fast. My gags muffled my expletives as they came out as little more than grunts. “Open space please, open space,” the paramedic shouted. I whispered in pain, “Please, Lord, don’t let me die.”

Summary:

There are things the people of Winter, Wisconsin, would rather forget. The year the Nazis came to town, for one. That fire, for another. But what they'd really like to forget is Christian Cage. Seventeen-year-old Christian's parents disappeared when he was a little boy. Ever since, he's drawn obsessively: his mother's face...her eyes...and what he calls "the sideways place," where he says his parents are trapped. Christian figures if he can just see through his mother's eyes, maybe he can get there somehow and save them. But Christian also draws other things. Ugly things. Evil things. Dark things. Things like other people's fears and nightmares. Their pasts. Their destiny. There's one more thing the people of Winter would like to forget: murder. But Winter won’t be able to forget the truth, no matter how hard it tries. Not as long as Christian draws the dark...

Summary:

3150. A world in turmoil. Wracked by the ravages of near constant warfare and natural disaster, the embattled populations of the surviving nations are clinging onto the last remnants of civilisation. The land of Echelon, once a proud and free country, has now fallen under the dark reign of a thousand presidents, each worse and more bloodthirsty than the last. Over eight hundred years they have locked their people behind the very seawalls once used to protect them against the forgotten calamities of the past, and over time all memory of life outside the walls that hem them in have faded. Countless freedom fighters have given their lives to try and free Echelons people from the tyrannical masters who set them to work building weapons of destruction with which to crush the remaining countries of the world. But President Immanuel Starks deadliest plans have finally been taken from his hands and placed into Senator Dale Marshalls. Barely, managing to escape his home with the help of special forces soldiers from around the world called Agents, he must now use that information to rally the warring and disparate factions of the world around the banner of freedom, all the while trying to stay one step ahead of Starks deadliest soldiers. Will he and the Agents be up to the task of reuniting the Earth, or will the Presidents long awaited plans finally succeed?

Summary:

"In his vision Odin saw a ring, glittering and bright, a thing of great beauty and danger. And the face of a mortal man, stern and beautiful, his fair hair blowing in the wind of battle as the fire-edged sword in his hand rose and fell" So Odin, lord of the nine worlds, saw Sigurd Dragonslayer for the first time. He alone could recapture the ring of power from the cruel dragon Fafnir. In his effort to regain the ring, Odin ensnared Sigurd and the race of the Volsungs in his schemes * for if he failed, it would mean the beginning of Ragnarok, the end of all worlds Set in the savage, beautiful world of Norse legend, this is the epic quest of romance, enchantment, adventure and treachery from which Richard Wagner created his magnificent operatic cycle, The Ring of the Nibelung. William Morris said of the tale of Sigurd, "This is the great story of the North, which should be to all our race what the tale of Troy was to the Greeks."

Summary:

The ring shout is the oldest known African American performance tradition surviving on the North American continent. Performed for the purpose of religious worship, this fusion of dance, song, and percussion survives today in the Bolton Community of McIntosh County, Georgia. Incorporating oral history, first-person accounts, musical transcriptions, photographs, and drawings, Shout Because You're Free documents a group of performers known as the McIntosh County Shouters. Derived from African practices, the ring shout combines call-and-response singing, the percussion of a stick or broom on a wood floor, and hand-clapping and foot-tapping. First described in depth by outside observers on the sea islands of South Carolina and Georgia during the Civil War, the ring shout was presumed to have died out in active practice until 1980, when the shouters in the Bolton community first came to the public's attention. Shout Because You're Free is the result of sixteen years of research and fieldwork by Art and Margo Rosenbaum, authors of Folk Visions and Voices. The book includes descriptions of present-day community shouts, a chapter on the history of the shout's African origins, the recollections of early outside observers, and later folklorists' comments. In addition, the tunes and texts of twenty-five shout songs performed by the McIntosh County Shouters are transcribed by ethnomusicologist Johann S. Buis.Shout Because You're Free is a fascinating look at a unique living tradition that demonstrates ties to Africa, slavery, and Emancipation while interweaving these influences with worship and oneness with the spirit.
