READING: “An elegiac yet exuberant new memoir” (The New York Times Book Review)—Bill Walton’s New York Times bestselling memoir about his recovery from debilitating physical injury and how lessons from John Wooden at UCLA (and the music of the Grateful Dead) have inspired his darkest hours. In February 2008, Bill Walton suffered a spinal collapse so devastating he was unable to get up. It was the culmination of a lifetime of injury. Although Walton had played fourteen seasons in the NBA, he actually missed more games than he played during those years due to injury. From the time of his spinal collapse until his eventual recovery, he spent most of three years flat on the ground. The pain was excruciating, and he thought seriously about killing himself. But he survived, and Back from the Dead is the story of his injury and recovery, set in the context of his amazing athletic career. Walton grew up in southern California in the 1950s and was deeply influenced by the political and cultural upheavals of the 1960s. Although Walton identified strongly with the counterculture, especially in music, the greatest influence on him outside his family was Coach John Wooden, a thoughtful, precise mentor who seemed immune to the turmoil of the times. The two men would speak every day for forty-three years until Wooden’s death at age ninety-nine. John Wooden once said that no greatness ever came without sacrifice. In this “frequently stirring memoir…Walton’s love for life and the people and things in it—including his college coach, John Wooden—is infectious. You can’t stop reading, or rooting for the man” (Publishers Weekly). Back from the Dead shares his dramatic story, including his basketball and broadcasting careers, his many setbacks and rebounds, and his ultimate triumph as the toughest of champions. “[Walton] scores another basket—a deeply personal one.” (Kirkus Reviews)

READING: Saturday, October 12, 2002 was the day Australia changed forever.477.It was our 'September 11'. It was the bombing of Bali. Peter Hughes was the man whose blistered and swollen face we saw on television during the shocking first hours of the news coverage from Bali. He literally took our breath away when we heard him quietly tell rescuers he was okay and to help those worse off than him. Looking at him, we could see that he was badly injured himself. And indeed he was. Later, he lapsed into a month-long coma during which he died three times and had to be revived.477. BACK FROM THE DEAD is a gripping and personal account of the day terrorism cast its deadly shadow on Australia as told by the man who became the human face of the victims, a reluctant and accidental hero who did what he knew best: never give up hope. This is the unforgettable story of the unimaginable - the day we lost our innocence. It seemed in the aftermath of the tragedy that almost everyone knew one of the victims or knew someone who did. We are all connected somehow.477.It is also a testament to courage, mateship, and the remarkable resilience of the human spirit to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.

READING: What if...this morning, when you opened your newspaper, went online, turned on the TV, the headline startled your memories back to childhood fears: MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN CREATURE FOUND... ALIVE! What if Mary Shelley's, FRANKENSTEIN, was really a true story? BACK FROM THE DEAD: the true sequel to Frankenstein is an assemblage of psychological drama, horror, romance, and science-fiction. The story follows the account by Sergio Carerra, the scientist who revives the thought-to-be mythical creature from a two-hundred year arctic freeze and, with help from his psychologist wife, Sophia, brings him into the family of man. The fantastical story the creature tells is at odds with his gothic sojourns to the 1790's through dreams and reveries; they reveal a unique perspective on Shelley' original story, why he survived, and what happened to his mate. Present-day society takes to this formidable beast, so different than his movie counterpart, in a wholly modern way. And his feelings and reactions to his unwanted resurrection give him hope where none existed before. But now that he's back, there are others interested in him for reasons not so apparent, and they will do anything to get what they want. Finally, after 200 years, we are about to learn the truth.
