Book Summary: Set in late 1950’s Lancashire, the book follows the lives of children who don’t have mobiles, television, or homework, but they do have freedom after school, when they join their friends in a secret society. They start to look for adventures, but soon the adventures come looking for them. The famous pendle witches of centuries ago live just a few miles away. Could it be that their descendants are now plotting evil deeds right here where they live? Or could the truth turn out to be even more sinister, putting the children in serious danger? Singing in the Sky is a delightful adventure book for children and young adults, but grandparents and other mature readers can enjoy reliving their memories of the school playground with its games, lore and fun. In the book, post-war austerity is tempered with optimism, small treats are treasured and strong friendships forged. The story illustrates how much our lives have changed, yet also shows that our basic values haven’t changed at all. This is an exciting historical adventure story that will capture children's imaginations, and transport them to a time without technology.

Book Summary: In Sing With Me, Carlisle Jacobson begins a teaching career in Washington, D.C., learning as much as he is teaching. Through personal experiences, he learns most youths dont have the advantages he enjoyed in the horse country of northern Virginiaonly a day-trip away from Washington but worlds away from its streets plagued by crime and nearly cut off from hopeas a child of privilege and wealth, with slave owners of the antebellum south in his ancestry. A hunting enthusiast since he was young, Carlisle still is alarmed to learn firearms are used frequently in D.C. for hunting down other people, including one of his student's and a co-worker. His most frequent teacher in learning he has a lot to learn is Lucia Sanspeur, a black woman with ancestry that extends to Colonial era settlers on the Delaware River, including a man who performed a heroic mission during the Revolutionary War despite the white militia leaders disdain for his skills and initiative. Lucias voice captivates Carlisle from their first encounter and her ideas propel him toward understanding that he looks at the world and other people through a sense of white wealth and privilege. When he experiences first-hand the violence and crime that victimize many in the area daily, Carlisles education moves into advanced studies but also comes to nearly a complete stop.

Book Summary: Ramses Suarez's poetry is part of the metaphysical vision of reality, with an attitude of questioning 2​ or questioning.​ Of course, there is a way of understanding poetry and a way of feeling it. Some say that poetry was not written to understand it but to feel it. I differ from that approach, since everything that exists, like all human creation, can be understood and felt at the same time, for which we have not only intelligence and sensitivity, the two great faculties of the human condition,creation and the interpretation of literary texts. When contemplating reality, we see from what is contemplated what dazzles and moves us. Now when I write, at the dawn of a fresh December day, I contemplate the horizon and a trail of light clears the infinite space. Between the flickering light and the resentful shadow, the dew flows with its mirror of unredeemed light. The landscape seen alone in this winter condition, the cold hides its charm. The contour reflects what the heart projects, since the essence underlies its pain while waiting for the breath that redeems or the breath that caresses. Creativity tends to flow when the content is coupled to the shape that embodies it. Of course, without transfiguration there is no experience with an imprint or internalized enjoyment, much less transcendent encouragement.

Book Summary: For over fifty years, Bill C. Malone has researched and written about the history of country music. Today he is celebrated as the foremost authority on this distinctly American genre. This new collection brings together his significant article-length work from a variety of sources, including essays, book chapters, and record liner notes. Sing Me Back Home distills a lifetime of thinking about country and southern roots music. Malone offers the heartfelt story of his own working-class upbringing in rural East Texas, recounting how in 1939 his family’s first radio, a battery-powered Philco, introduced him to hillbilly music and how, years later, he went on to become a scholar in the field before the field formally existed. Drawing on a hundred years of southern roots music history, Malone assesses the contributions of artists such as William S. Hays, Albert Brumley, Joe Thompson, Jimmie Rodgers, Johnny Gimble, and Elvis Presley. He also explores the intricate relationships between black and white music styles, gospel and secular traditions, and pop, folk, and country music. Author of many books, Malone is best known for his pioneering volume County Music, U.S.A., published in 1968. It ranks as the first comprehensive history of American country music and remains a standard reference. This compilation of Malone’s shorter—and more personal—essays is the perfect complement to his earlier writing and a compelling introduction to the life’s work of America’s most respected country music historian.

As one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, Mandarin is poised to become the next addition to lyric languages. Singing in Mandarin: A Guide to Chinese Lyric Diction and Vocal Repertoire is a comprehensive guide to unlocking the mysteries of Chinese contemporary vocal literature. In part one, Chu and Petrus focus on diction and language, providing detailed descriptions and exercises for creating the sounds of the language. They take a uniquely systematic approach, fusing together best practices from international music conservatories for diction study, with those for Chinese language learning. Part two outlines the historical context of Chinese vocal literature, chronicling the development of the language and its repertoire over the last one hundred years. Audio files narrated by native speakers demonstrating the sounds are also included. Singing in Mandarin provides guidance for both novices and those with previous experience singing or speaking Mandarin and is the first book of its kind to help bring the fascinating and previously inaccessible treasure of Chinese vocal music to Western audiences.

Book Summary: “A rollicking good fantasy worthy of both leisure reading and study.”—D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review Blood magic is dark and dangerous. Is it Dasha’s only hope? When Dasha, Tsarinovna of all of Zem’, began a dalliance with her halfblood steppe guard Alik while on a mission of peace to the warlike Rutsi, she never thought it would lead to carrying his spirit in her body. But when he dies saving her from an attack by a magical wolf, Dasha saves his life the only way she can—with forbidden blood magic. Blood magic is dangerous, but that proves to be the least of Dasha’s problems. After her betrothal to a Rutsi prince goes catastrophically awry, Dasha finds herself on the run through a beautiful but hostile landscape, hunted by Rutsi warriors and ravening wolves alike. Her fickle visions, meanwhile, have abandoned her just when she needs them most. Dasha has to fight through her fears and learn to harness the power of blood magic and lovers’ bonds to save herself and those she cares about most. But lost in the woods and with winter coming on, will Dasha be able to survive to the next sunrise, let alone until her visions return? A transcendent high fantasy adventure that combines spiritual exploration and spicy romance against the backdrop of an evocative Finnish landscape, The Singing Shore II: Sky and Stone will appeal to fans of The Bear and the Nightingale, The Wolf and the Woodsman, and anyone who loves smart, subversive, female-centered fantasy.
