#1 New York Time bestselling author Jan Karon delivers the wedding that millions of Mitford fans have waited for. It’s a June day in the mountains, with more than a few creatures great and small, and you’re invited—because you’re family. Over the course of ten Mitford novels, fans have kept a special place in their hearts for Dooley Kavanagh, first seen in At Home in Mitford as a barefoot, freckle-faced boy in filthy overalls. Now, Father Tim Kavanagh’s adopted son has graduated from vet school and opened his own animal clinic. Since money will be tight for a while, maybe he and Lace Harper, his once and future soul mate, should keep their wedding simple. By the way, it’s a pretty casual affair, so come as you are and remember to bring a tissue or two. After all, what’s a good wedding without a good cry?

When Ray turns up to visit his old university friends Charlie and Emily, he's given a special task: to be so much his useless self that he makes Charlie look good by comparison. But Ray has his own buried feelings to contend with. Decades earlier, he and Emily would listen to jazz when they were alone, and now, as Sarah Vaughan sings through the speakers, he struggles to control everything the sound brings with it. In Kazuo Ishiguro's hands, a snapshot of domestic realism becomes a miniature masterpiece of memory and forgetting.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Rose Gardner collects secrets the way other people collect junk—and now she’s being asked to expose them. Special Prosecutor Mason Deveraux has called a grand jury to investigate the corruption in the Sweet Branch Police Department, and he’s summoned Rose as a witness. Any topic is fair game, and the criminals in Fenton county are rightly scared of what she might share under oath. While trying to placate the lawless men, Rose is also caring for her dying sister, Violet. Only Violet’s doctor has fled town after selling prescriptions, and Rose is sure big-time drug dealer Denny Carmichael has his hand in the situation. She has no intention of investigating, but like with a lot of her cases, clues keep falling into her lap. Then, just when it feels like everything’s at a boiling point, Rose gets shocking news that turns her life upside down. Now, she’s not just soothing the criminals’ anxiety, but actively seeking allies for a fight she hasn’t asked for—and her enemy just might be the man she loves.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and author of the Booker Prize–winning novel The Remains of the Day comes an inspired sequence of stories as affecting as it is beautiful. With the clarity and precision that have become his trademarks, Kazuo Ishiguro interlocks five short pieces of fiction to create a world that resonates with emotion, heartbreak, and humor. Here is a fragile, once famous singer, turning his back on the one thing he loves; a music junky with little else to offer his friends but opinion; a songwriter who inadvertently breaks up a marriage; a jazz musician who thinks the answer to his career lies in changing his physical appearance; and a young cellist whose tutor has devised a remarkable way to foster his talent. For each, music is a central part of their lives and, in one way or another, delivers them to an epiphany.

Language: en

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Weather Architecture further extends Jonathan Hill’s investigation of authorship by recognising the creativity of the weather. At a time when environmental awareness is of growing relevance, the overriding aim is to understand a history of architecture as a history of weather and thus to consider the weather as an architectural author that affects design, construction and use in a creative dialogue with other authors such as the architect and user. Environmental discussions in architecture tend to focus on the practical or the poetic but here they are considered together. Rather than investigate architecture’s relations to the weather in isolation, they are integrated into a wider discussion of cultural and social influences on architecture. The analysis of weather’s effects on the design and experience of specific buildings and gardens is interwoven with a historical survey of changing attitudes to the weather in the arts, sciences and society, leading to a critical re-evaluation of contemporary responses to climate change.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"Friendships between women can be a place of refuge from loneliness and indifference, a place where we can know we matter as we are." ~Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D. Author, Kitchen Table Wisdom As this compilation of stories teaches, friendship between women rarely happens automatically—that's what makes it special. Sometimes the circumstances of life—like moving to a new city, or losing your job, or entering your child in school—create an opportunity. But the act of friendship is intentional. Openness is a key ingredient even though recognition of a woman as a friend may require time. Friendship must often go through crisis or trial, some event that forges a bond and solidifies trust. The themes of difficulty and betrayal are woven into these stories, for the authors wisely know that friendship between women must be tested. Sometimes it takes painful and disappointing experiences to begin to value ourselves as friends. Some of us need to learn that what we offer in friendship is rich and worth its weight in gold. We must learn discernment about when to offer it and when it must be withdrawn because the other is not able to appreciate the potential gift of friendship. These short, compact stories are meant to be savored and reflected upon. They can be read slowly over lazy days or used as a morning reflection before running off to work. What they offer is a small but clear view of the female heart through the lens of friendship. "There is something easy, something flowing, something sacred that can go on between women. Linda Bucklin and Mary Keil have modeled this in their work together. They are close friends, and out of that friendship comes this book." ~ The Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress OTHER TITLES by Linda Hale Bucklin Beyond His Control - Memoir of a Disobedient Daughter The Love of Angels ABOUT THE AUTHORS: A fourth-generation San Franciscan, Linda Hale Bucklin now lives in Mill Valley CA. She recently lost her beloved husband of forty years, yet she feels so blessed to be surrounded by her three grown sons, two daughters-in-law and four grandchildren. She has worked in public relations and as a freelance writer. Her articles have appeared in HOUSE AND GARDEN, JOURNAL OF COMMERCE and NOB HILL GAZETTE. In 1999, together with Mary Keil, she co-authored COME RAIN OR COME SHINE, published by Adams Media. In 2008, her second book BEYOND HIS CONTROL, MEMOIR OF A DISOBEDIENT DAUGHTER, was published. The book went on to become a New York Times Best Seller in paperback and eBook editions. The New York Post Page Six article entitled “Tennis Queen Rips Stepmom” describes Linda’s book “as a jolting new memoir.” In it, she writes of growing up in a privileged San Francisco family and chronicles her struggle to understand its dynamics, stand up to her domineering father and make sense of her beloved mother’s sudden death and father’s (Prentis Cobb Hale) subsequent marriage to Denise Minnelli. Her third book THE LOVE OF ANGELS came out in 2016. A collection of stories, including the author’s own, the book chronicles encounters with angels, spiritual beings, animals and living people who show up to remind us of the power of love. Linda loves books and stories of all kinds and has always been interested in her own and others’ spiritual growth. For many years, she served as a trustee for San Francisco’s magnificent Grace Cathedral and for The Magic Theatre, whose mission was to discover and present new American playwrights, starting with Sam Shepard. Her family and friends, and especially her cherished friendship with Mary, are of primary importance to her, but she finds time to pursue other interests as well. For some years a nationally ranked tennis player, she became #1 in the U.S. in 60 mixed doubles in 2006 with her longtime partner and close friend Charlie Hoeveler. Holding six national titles, she continues to compete in tournaments across the country. Linda’s other passions include duplicate bridge, duck hunting, camping in Montana, fly-fishing on the North Fork of the Black Foot River, and at night, gazing up at the immense, star-studded, black Montana sky. She feels at once incredibly humbled and grateful. Mary Keil’s varied professional life includes time in the Federal government and banking, as a consultant and an entrepreneur. Eventually following her heart led her towards creative endeavors, often making use of her business experience. She was the screenwriter and executive producer of SWING, an independent feature film starring Jacqueline Bisset, Jonathan Winters, Tom Skerrit and the late Nell Carter. She produced the independent film ANGEL BLUE (on Lifetime as MY NEIGHBOR’S DAUGHTER) and executive produced several short films and documentaries, including Shalini Kantayya’s film on water A DROP OF LIFE and Emily Squires’ FIVE MASTERS OF MEDITATION. Mary received a Tony nomination as producer of the 1989 Broadway musical STARMITES, affectionately known as the best Broadway musical you’ve never heard of. (starmites.com) The inspiring and spirited story of a teenage girl’s adventures as a superhero in her favorite comic book series, STARMITES is still performed enthusiastically in schools all over the country. She partnered with Jim Steinman and Amas Musical Theatre to present an updated STARMITES in NYC in 2001. Mary regards her long experience with this under-recognized show as pivotal to her subsequent creative ventures. Off-Broadway she produced Jon Klein’s play LOSING IT at the Provincetown Playhouse in Greenwich Village. She co-authored ENTERPRISE IN THE NON-PROFIT SECTOR (published by The Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Partners for Livable Places, 1981) about revenue-generating activities for nonprofits. Song lyrics are another favorite writing activity. Her lyrics appear on San Francisco-based guitarist/composer Gennaro Cannelora’s Wax Trio albums. Her short story “Knit One, Purl One” won third place in the 2016 Bookshop Santa Cruz 1200-word short story contest. It was the first time she had submitted her writing to a contest. When not relating to others, she reads extensively on current events, the environment, health, history, philosophy, quantum physics, biology and consciousness expansion. Mary practices yoga and buys organic and local at nearby farmers markets and enjoys walking the shores, hills and dales of Northern California with her husband of nine years. In mid-2016, she added grandmother to her list of priorities. In recent years, she has been creating what she calls word-art, her version of micrography, an ancient spiritual practice using inspirational words and expressions to create mandalas and other designs. She posts nature photographs on Instagram at #wordartfromtheheart and has created slideshows of her photos on her youTube channel. She is currently part of a team developing a serious video game about economics. Mary cherishes her ongoing friendship with Linda, begun during their collaboration on COME RAIN OR COME SHINE. She is delighted that their timeless book continues to inspire the friendships in all of our lives.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Over the Rainbow, "Stormy Weather," and "One for My Baby" are just a few of Harold Arlen's well-loved compositions. Yet his name is hardly known--except to the musicians who venerate him. At a gathering of songwriters George Gershwin called him "the best of us." Irving Berlin agreed. Paul McCartney sent him a fan letter and became his publisher. Bob Dylan wrote of his fascination with Arlen's "bittersweet, lonely world." A cantor's son, Arlen believed his music was from a place outside himself, a place that also sent tragedy. When his wife became mentally ill and was institutionalized he turned to alcohol. It nearly killed him. But the beautiful songs kept coming: "Blues in the Night," "My Shining Hour," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "The Man That Got Away." Walter Rimler drew on interviews with friends and associates of Arlen and on newly available archives to write this intimate portrait of a genius whose work is a pillar of the Great American Songbook.
