READING: The New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels explores a Southern family’s buried history, which will change the life of the woman who unearths it, secret by shattering secret. Two years after the death of her husband, Merritt Heyward receives unexpected news—Cal’s family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by his reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt. In Beaufort, the secrets of Cal’s unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt’s, will change and define her as she navigates her new life—a life complicated by the arrival of her too young stepmother and ten-year-old half brother. Soon, in this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Lowcountry.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The Sound of All Flesh is a volume of apocalyptic stories full of loud sounds and bright colours. Daily life becomes infused with a hallucinatory brightness and Rabelaisian energy and excess. In Barry Webster's unique stories, earthquakes happen when people go too long without sex, a grand piano becomes a sailboat crossing the ocean and clowns hiding in the Canadian Shield suddenly invade the suburbs of Toronto. We meet a sexually-impotent gay fashionista, a travel writer terrified of being photographed, a suddenly hydrophobic competitive swimmer and an opera singer who finds inspiration by bathing in tubs of margarine. These stories, which meander from Switzerland's imaginary avenues of cash to the streets of Toronto and Berlin, are musical scores, full of unexpected crescendoes and sudden fortissimos. Webster humanizes his bizarre tales with humour and and unexpected moments of pathos. Readers will find unforgettable characters among the sound and fury of Webster's language, characters who struggle to overthow their obsessions. The Sound of All Flesh brings us into another world, at once hilarious, disturbing and poignant. Stories in the collection have been shortlisted for the National Magazine Award and the CBC-Quebec prize.

READING: An extraordinary debut that brings together a hypnotic quest, a thrilling Western, and an unforgettable love story. Set in the 1930s, The Sound of the Trees tells the story of Trude Mason, who, seeking to escape a brutal father and a violent past, sets out with his mother on horseback on a grueling journey through the extreme desert and mountainous terrain of southwestern New Mexico. Their destination is Colorado, a place Trude imagines to be abundantly fertile, wild, and free. But along the way, Trude finds himself in the clutches of a small New Mexican border town, once again a victim of brutality and lawlessness, this time in the form of a pitiless sheriff and his posse. When they arrest and sentence to death a young woman whose life Trude has saved, he must face an explosive collision between conscience and self-preservation. Affecting yet unsentimental, written in piercing, unadorned prose, Robert Gatewood's The Sound of the Trees marks the arrival of a vital new literary voice.

All goes smoothly until two of the newest counselors go missing in the middle of the night. The camp director sends his two most experienced counselors to look for the missing couple. One of the counselors, Lloyd Keller, and his girlfriend soon discover the grim fate of the missing counselors. They return to camp to find it has been taken over by six escapees from a local mental institution. In the ensuing torture and torment, Keller is left for dead but makes a desperate attempt to save his colleagues before the bus full of children arrives.

READING: Philip Glass behoort tot de invloedrijkste componisten en musici van de tweede helft van de twintigste eeuw. Zijn omvangrijke werk reikt van opera's, symfonieën, concerto's, musicals, kamermuziek, vioolkwartetten en solostukken tot aan filmmuziek, popmuziek en op muziek gezette poëzie en proza. Hij is baanbrekend geweest in het slaan van bruggen tussen klassieke muziek en andere vormen van kunst en theater. Hij liet zich inspireren door beeldend kunstenaars, schrijvers en dichters; zijn filmmuziek - onder meer voor The Hours - werd tot drie keer toe genomineerd voor een Academy Award. In dit fascinerende boek laat Glass zien wat de kracht is van muziek in het menselijk bestaan en hoe muziek de wereld kan veranderen. Hij vertelt ook over zijn eigen creatieve proces, over zijn jeugd in Baltimore en zijn studie van Schubert, Bach en Mozart bij de legendarische Nadia Boulanger in Parijs, waar hij kennismaakte met de filmgroten van de nouvelle vague en waar hij voor het eerst het rijke arsenaal van zijn eigen talenten ontdekte. Glass' werk telt vele hoogtepunten. Hij schreef een opera gebaseerd op Coetzees roman Waiting for the Barbarians, hij maakte furore met Einstein on the Beach en Satyagraha. Zijn nieuwste opera over Kafka's Het Proces beleefde onlangs in Londen zijn première. Woorden zonder muziek is ook gewijd aan Glass' bewogen privéleven. Hij werkte bij Bethlehem Steel, reisde vele malen naar India en was in de jaren '70 taxichauffeur in New York. Glass is vier keer getrouwd en heeft vier kinderen. Tot zijn omvangrijke vriendenkring behoren en behoorden onder anderen: Richard Serra, Sol Lewitt, Jerome Robbins, David Byrne, Chuck Close, Linda Ronstadt, Woody Allen en Leonard Cohen. De intense verwevenheid van het persoonlijke en muzikale leven van Philip Glass maken dit boek tot een buitengewone leeservaring. 'Het langverwachte, persoonlijke verhaal van een van de meest geliefde en vooraanstaande hedendaagse componisten.' - The New York Times

READING: Some Comments from Len’s Students... “I want you to know that in my many years of being a student, you easily rank as the best teacher I have ever had. Your skill and patience has made me infinitely more comfortable with my weapons and myself. The next class you teach, I'll be there in a heartbeat. I'm sure you don't have to be reminded of the multitude of people you have touched and the positive impact you have had on firearms training overall.” Bob Patridge “Len has taught me to effectively and safely use a handgun and rifle and for that I will always be grateful. I look forward to the time I spend once or twice a week under his instruction. Len has created a wide range of firearms training programs out of virtually nothing and trained a sizeable and competent cadre of firearms instructors who, like me, greatly respects the man. He is engaged with his students and always approachable. Students who have shot much longer than me comment on his great depth of knowledge and ability to improve their shooting. He clearly loves to teach the material and his enthusiasm is contagious. He has a great sense of humor and makes his classes a lot of fun. But in spite of all of this the safety of his students is always his first concern.” Dr. Noel Pillman, MD “I am a retired police officer and a former police firearms instructor for over 20 years. I have been to numerous firearms training classes over the years but have not had any instructors more professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated to what they do then Len Breure.” Maurice Merabella "Len was my first real 'tactical' instructor a few years ago. He is a thorough, safe, and well versed instructor. His teaching style is unique in a way that clearly conveys lessons and makes them easy to understand for experienced shooters and novices alike. Len brings a wealth of prior "been there, done that" experience to the table that's an asset to his teaching, and is rarely found in many of the new instructors that have come to the arena since most states have enacted concealed carry laws. I continue to train with a variety of tactical instructors, and am always amazed by how much of the information Len taught me is still the foundation upon which I build." Mike VanMeeteren "I have been fortunate enough to receive numerous training courses that were being taught by Len Breure. In my opinion, Len is one of the best in the business! It is very rewarding to be able to learn from someone who has the experience and knowledge to take tactical training to the next level." Jim Bryant I first meet Len while taking my Minnesota Concealed Carry Course in 2005. Since that time I have taken every course that Len teaches. In my opinion Len is the consummate professional, who teaches with passion and an incredible degree of knowledge. I would strongly urge anyone interested in personal protection to take Lens courses.

Once she does, they work together to uncover both the secrets of their own pasts and the breathtaking story of Andrew’s ancestors.
