READING: PEOPLE'S BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR! ONE OF NEW YORK TIMES' NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2016!INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER! YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT hilariously, and candidly, explores the journey of the twenty-first century woman. As both a tomboy and a late bloomer, comedian Jessi Klein grew up feeling more like an outsider than a participant in the rites of modern femininity. In YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT, Klein offers-through an incisive collection of real-life stories-a relentlessly funny yet poignant take on a variety of topics she has experienced along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her "transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man," attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called "ma'am" and "miss" ("Miss sounds like you weigh ninety-nine pounds"). Raw, relatable, and consistently hilarious, YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT is a one-of-a-kind book by a singular and irresistible comic voice.

READING: 'De regels gelden niet' is het verhaal van Ariel Levy, een vrouw die dacht dat ze de wereld aankon, en tegelijk een onvergetelijk portret van een generatie die worstelt met vrijheid als 'gift' van het feminisme. Op achtendertigjarige leeftijd ging Levy voor het tijdschrift 'The New Yorker' op reportage naar Mongolië. Ze was zwanger, getrouwd, financieel gezond - ze had, kortom, alles. Een maand later was daar niets meer van over. Ariel Levy slingert je door het verhaal van het onconventionele leven dat ze voor zichzelf smeedde - dat ze vervolgens te pletter zag slaan in een razendsnel tempo, en waarvan ze de scherven langzaam weer bij elkaar heeft geraapt.

READING: When he fell from a darkened stage in November 1996, Kirk Franklin could easily have been killed. That ten-foot plunge might have ended the career of one of America's most exciting young prodigies. But thanks to his dramatic recovery, the fall added not only a new dimension to his story but it brought Kirk Franklin to the attention of millions who otherwise might never have heard the name. Today Kirk Franklin is bigger than ever. His recordings have topped the charts, selling more copies in less time than any gospel musician in history. He has won every award gospel music has to offer but his own success is the last thing on his mind. This is the story of a young man from the poor side of town. He was taunted and teased as a child, but his faith and his remarkable musical talent helped him overcome the odds. In these pages Kirk Franklin reveals the real source of his strength. "What motivates me," he says, "is the knowledge that God has redeemed me from the pain and the hurts and the sin of my past and given me a new joy I can't even explain. It's not just for show," he says. "It's the truth, and that's what I want to express."

READING: "Before the Monkeys Came" is a 2001 winner in the Writers Digest Self-published Book Awards, Literary/Mainstream category. Frank watches as his friends are drafted to fight a war no one believes in, or he helps them escape to Canada when their student deferments expire to avoid serving in the rock and roll war. Never having to chose, being forever 4-F (unfit for military service) has robbed him of the chance to make his own political statement. Frank was born with hemophilia, a hereditary disease passed from mother to son. His blood doesnt clot normally, so even a minor bump to a knee or elbow joint often becomes a serious bleed, ultimately causing crippling, muscle atrophy and extreme episodes of intense pain. As a child frequent hospital stays were the norm, and missed school routine. The needles, transfusions and traction are the only therapies being preformed in the fifties and early sixties when the average life expectancy of a boy with hemophilia was fifteen. With the first significant advances in cryo-precipitate (clotting factor removed from whole blood, spun in a centrifuge and frozen for later IV injection.) the first real help arrives by the mid-sixties. Later came Factor VIII, manufactured from whole blood from blood banks like the Red Cross, and the technology for quick intravenous treatment that worked significantly better than anything that came before, promises a more normal life for those born later than Frank and the other men already significantly impaired. But Franks crippling is stabilized by Factor VIII and he finally sees hope. The comes 1976, the bicentennial year and the year of AIDS. Drug companies poor quality control and the FDAs lack of oversight allows millions of contaminated blood to be processed into Factor VIII and other blood products and distributed to the hemophilia community without regard to the possible infections it could cause. Not warned until 1985, eighty to ninety percent of hemophiliacs who infused Factor VIII during those years becomes HIV positive. A third of them would die of full blown AIDS within a year, hundreds of spouses will be infected, and their children before the spread is controlled. Franks story is only one of thousands of people caught in this terrible web. The treatment that once held such hope and promise for a healthier life, becomes worse than the disease it tried to help. Frank faces heartbreak, loss, new injuries and further crippling as he tries to face down his demons and find a way just to

READING: NATIONAL BESTSELLER Being a teenager has never been easy, but in recent years, with the rise of the Internet and social media, it has become exponentially more challenging. Bullying, once thought of as the province of queen bees and goons, has taken on new, complex, and insidious forms, as parents and educators know all too well. No writer is better poised to explore this territory than Emily Bazelon, who has established herself as a leading voice on the social and legal aspects of teenage drama. In Sticks and Stones, she brings readers on a deeply researched, clear-eyed journey into the ever-shifting landscape of teenage meanness and its sometimes devastating consequences. The result is an indispensable book that takes us from school cafeterias to courtrooms to the offices of Facebook, the website where so much teenage life, good and bad, now unfolds. Along the way, Bazelon defines what bullying is and, just as important, what it is not. She explores when intervention is essential and when kids should be given the freedom to fend for themselves. She also dispels persistent myths: that girls bully more than boys, that online and in-person bullying are entirely distinct, that bullying is a common cause of suicide, and that harsh criminal penalties are an effective deterrent. Above all, she believes that to deal with the problem, we must first understand it. Blending keen journalistic and narrative skills, Bazelon explores different facets of bullying through the stories of three young people who found themselves caught in the thick of it. Thirteen-year-old Monique endured months of harassment and exclusion before her mother finally pulled her out of school. Jacob was threatened and physically attacked over his sexuality in eighth grade—and then sued to protect himself and change the culture of his school. Flannery was one of six teens who faced criminal charges after a fellow student’s suicide was blamed on bullying and made international headlines. With grace and authority, Bazelon chronicles how these kids’ predicaments escalated, to no one’s benefit, into community-wide wars. Cutting through the noise, misinformation, and sensationalism, she takes us into schools that have succeeded in reducing bullying and examines their successful strategies. The result is a groundbreaking book that will help parents, educators, and teens themselves better understand what kids are going through today and what can be done to help them through it. Contains a new discussion guide for classroom use and book groups.

READING: When she fell pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent at Roscrea in Co. Tipperary to be looked after as a fallen woman. She cared for her baby for three years until the Church took him from her and sold him, like countless others, to America for adoption. Coerced into signing a document promising never to attempt to see her child again, she nonetheless spent the next fifty years secretly searching for him, unaware that he was searching for her from across the Atlantic. Philomena's son, renamed Michael Hess, grew up to be a top Washington lawyer and a leading Republican official in the Reagan and Bush administrations. But he was a gay man in a homophobic party where he had to conceal not only his sexuality but, eventually, the fact that he had AIDs. With little time left, he returned to Ireland and the convent where he was born: his desperate quest to find his mother before he died left a legacy that was to unfold with unexpected consequences for all involved. The Lost Child of Philomena Lee is the tale of a mother and a son whose lives were scarred by the forces of hypocrisy on both sides of the Atlantic and of the secrets they were forced to keep. A compelling narrative of human love and loss, Martin Sixsmith's moving account is both heartbreaking yet ultimately redemptive.

To advance her political career, she takes in an elderly black man named Lester Bray. Lester arrives with a vintage Cadillac and an old man's personality. It takes only a week for Alex's mother to ask Lester to leave. That makes Alex angry. On the morning of his eviction, Lester and Alex set out on a road trip ostensibly to find the boy's father in Ft. Lauderdale. But the two don't just head south. They also cross through un-navigated political, racial, and personal territory.

He continued his education at Indiana State, where he received a doctorate in clinical psychology; he has worked as a psychologist ever since. His memoir Hammerhead 84 covers his journey through the mental health industry. Cadillac Chronicles is his debut novel. He lives in Albany, New York, with his wife and their two sons.
