Join us for an hour of stirring and straightforward wisdom from one of the most highly respected of modern American writers and poets. Using words like "affection", "satisfaction", "care", and "joy", Berry calls for a re-evaluation of the basic values and practices of our lives. He illustrates his ideas with glimpses of his own life and those of his Kentucky farm neighbors, and describes a future where we can learn to find love, wisdom and meaning in the people, the places and the work of our own daily lives. "Abstractions don't work - abstractions are abstractions," he says. "You have to realize that finally you must do something." Wendell Berry is the author of many books including Standing By Words (North Point Press 1983), The Gift of Good Land (North Point Press 1981), Collected Poems: 1957-1982 (North Point Press 1985) and Nathan Coulter (North Point Press 1985).

In this sci-fi middle school adventure by the New York Times best-selling author of the Origami Yoda series, one girl and one robot team up to save their school. From the minds of Tom Angleberger, the New York Times best-selling author of the wildly popular Origami Yoda series, and Paul Dellinger, an adult science-fiction writer, comes a funny middle school story with a memorable robot title character.

The New York Times best-selling author of Girls & Sex and Cinderella Ate My Daughter delivers her first ever collection of essays - funny, poignant, deeply personal and sharply observed pieces, drawn from three decades of writing, which trace girls' and women's progress (or lack thereof) in what Orenstein once called a "half-changed world." Named one of the "40 women who changed the media business in the last 40 years" by Columbia Journalism Review, Peggy Orenstein is one of the most prominent, unflinching feminist voices of our time. Her writing has broken ground and broken silences on topics as wide-ranging as miscarriage, motherhood, breast cancer, princess culture and the importance of girls' sexual pleasure. Her unique blend of investigative reporting, personal revelation and unexpected humor has made her books best-selling classics. In Don't Call Me Princess, Orenstein's most resonant and important essays are available for the first time in collected form, updated with both an original introduction and personal reflections on each piece. Her takes on reproductive justice, the infertility industry, tensions between working and stay-at-home moms, pink ribbon fear-mongering and the complications of girl culture are not merely timeless - they have, like Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, become more urgent in our contemporary political climate. Don't Call Me Princess offers a crucial evaluation of where we stand today as women - in our work lives, sex lives, as mothers, as partners - illuminating both how far we've come and how far we still have to go. 1.
