To those whose lives have been touched by cancer, The Courage to Die with the Spirit to Live tells of one man’s journey, from his diagnosis to his final 30 days. In June 2011, my late husband, Craig Sanders, was diagnosed with non-small cell squamous lung cancer. Writing this book keeps the promise I made to Craig when he learned his battle with lung cancer was coming to an end and he was transitioning to his next phase of life. During this time, he lived his life to the fullest, in spite of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. He went on two cruises, flew a plane, went fishing, crabbing, and was able to keep his sense of humor. He gave us strength, and left an indelible impact in our hearts and minds. The book depicts the various phases of Craig’s year-and-a-half battle with cancer. He loved helping people, and knew that as I penned his journey with this disease, he would be helping others, as well as myself. We don’t always know what paths our life will take. Often when something catastrophic does occur, we’re caught off-guard. Had it not been for our support system of family, friends, and our faith, the journey would have been impossible. We honor and salute you, and I know that Craig will always be just a prayer away from us all.

Whether celebrating bodies deemed transgressive or simply daring to acknowledge that such bodies exist, these diverse literary representations of fatness render the excessive body brilliantly, unapologetically visible.

Compiling more than 100 family recipes, founder of the Akron Recipe Project Judy Orr James serves up a history of home cooking in the Rubber City. From the city's founding in 1825 through the years following World War II, numerous ethnic and cultural groups made Akron home. With each new arrival, the city's food changed and deepened to delicious effect. Polish immigrants brought pierogi to the area, and Jews introduced Old World favorites like kugel and hamantaschen. African Americans seeking a better life in the North enriched the Akron palate with the unique and southern-inspired dishes of their ancestors. Last but not least, there is the sauerkraut ball, Akron's official food and favorite snack served at local restaurants, cocktail parties, holiday celebrations, and game day gatherings.

As African American women left the plantation economy behind, many entered domestic service in southern cities and towns. Cooking was one of the primary jobs they performed, feeding generations of white families and, in the process, profoundly shaping southern foodways and culture. In Cooking in Other Women's Kitchens: Domestic Workers in the South, 1865-1960, Rebecca Sharpless argues that, in the face of discrimination, long workdays, and low wages, African American cooks worked to assert measures of control over their own lives. As employment opportunities expanded in the twentieth century, most African American women chose to leave cooking for more lucrative and less oppressive manufacturing, clerical, or professional positions. Through letters, autobiography, and oral history, Sharpless evokes African American women's voices from slavery to the open economy, examining their lives at work and at home. The enhanced electronic version of the book includes twenty letters, photographs, first-person narratives, and other documents, each embedded in the text where it will be most meaningful. Featuring nearly 100 pages of new material, the enhanced e-book offers readers an intimate view into the lives of domestic workers, while also illuminating the journey a historian takes in uncovering these stories.

I would like for the reader to know where the idea came from to write this novel. I have been writing and painting all my life. It is and has always been a passion. My experience over the years has been this. When people found out that I was an artist, they would say, “Oh, my sister is an artist.” Or when they found out I was an author, they would say something similar. I am just a little selfish about the words writer and artist. I viewed those comments as insulting. Not long ago, I had this experience happen again, and I had an epiphany. I was wrong! What I failed to understand is that, yes, people do have a story to tell. Maybe not a novel, or even a short story, perhaps a very private experience, or a secret, that is special to them, and it should be. What bothers me is most die with their books. I decided to write a romance/mystery novel and encourage people to share their books and not die with them. So here it is, The Dead Club. Enjoy and start your own dead book club. This novel was done with love.

An "extraordinary" work of spiritual journalism that grapples with the themes of drugs, prisons, politics, and spirituality through Shaw’s personal story (Chicago Tribune), originally published as a series on Reality Sandwich and The Huffington Post. In 2005, Shaw was arrested in Chicago for possession of MDMA and was sent to prison for one year. Shaw not only looks at the current prison system and its many destructive flaws, but also at how American culture regards criminals and those who live outside of society. He begins his story at Chicago’s Cook County Jail, and uses its sprawling, highly corrupt infrastructure to build upon his overarching argument. This is an insider’s look at the forgotten or excluded segments of our society, the disenfranchised lifestyles and subcultures existing in what Shaw calls the “exile nation.” They are those who lost some or all of their ability to participate in the full opportunities of society because of an arrest or conviction for a non-violent, drug-related, or “moral offense,” those who cannot participate in the credit economy, and those with lifestyle choices that involve radical politics and sexuality, cognitive liberty, and unorthodox spiritual and healing practices. Together they make up the new “evolutionary counterculture” of the most significant epoch in human history.
