|Author||: Gene Mingo,Carol Strickland,Glen Strickland|
Gene Mingo grew up as a mischievous kid in Akron, Ohio, with a challenging childhood and love for high school football. After a stint in the US Navy, he found his way back to football. In 1960, he joined the American Football League as a placekicker, halfback, and return specialist for the Denver Broncos-but that was just the beginning. Gene has been inducted into the America Football League Hall of Fame, reflecting an illustrious career that included the first punt return for a touchdown in the AFL and two years spent leading the AFL in scoring. History considers him to have been the first African American placekicker in the AFL. Life isn't lived only on the football field, however; outside the game, number twenty-one had troubles. Perhaps due to finding success too quickly, Gene developed a tendency to fall in with a bad crowd. His poor choices led to near tragedy, but he always found a home on the football field. Gene Mingo's story isn't simple. It wasn't easy being a black man in a white man's world, and Gene had some internal demons of his own as well. Still, his story is that of legend, and the trials and tribulations of this spectacular athlete deserve to be remembered forever.

|Author||: Arlene Kim|
|Editor||: Milkweed Editions|
In her stunning debut poetry collection, What have you done to our ears to make us hear echoes?, Arlene Kim confronts the ways in which language mythologizes memory and, thus, exiles us from our own true histories. Juxtaposing formal choices and dreamlike details, Kim explores the entangled myths that accompany the experience of immigration—the abandoned country known only through stories, the new country into which the immigrant family must wander ever deeper, and the numerous points where these narratives intertwine. Sharing ground with Randall Jarrell’s later poems, and drawing on a dizzying array of sources—including Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Korean folklore, Turkish proverbs, Paul Celan, Anna Akhmatova, Antonin Dvorak’s letters, and the numerous fictions we script across the inscrutabilities of the natural world—Kim reveals how a homesickness for the self is universal. It is this persistent and incurable longing that drives us as we make our way through the dark woods of our lives, following what might or might not be a trail of breadcrumbs, discovering, finally, that “we are the only path.”
I Am a Damn Savage What Have You Done to My Country Eukuan nin matshi manitu innushkueu Tanite nene etutamin nitassi

|Editor||: Wilfrid Laurier Univ. Press|
Quebec author An Antane Kapesh's two books, Je suis une maudite sauvagesse (1976) and Qu'as-tu fait de mon pays? (1979), are among the foregrounding works by Indigenous women in Canada. This English translation of these works, each page presented facing the revised Innu text, makes them available for the first time to a broader readership. In I Am a Damn Savage, Antane Kapesh wrote to preserve and share her culture, experience, and knowledge, all of which, she felt, were disappearing at an alarming rate because many Elders – like herself – were aged or dying. She wanted to publicly denounce the conditions in which she and the Innu were made to live, and to address the changes she was witnessing due to land dispossession and loss of hunting territory, police brutality, and the effects of the residential school system. What Have You Done to My Country? is a fictional account by a young boy of the arrival of les Polichinelles (referring to White settlers) and their subsequent assault on the land and on native language and culture. Through these stories Antane Kapesh asserts that settler society will eventually have to take responsibility and recognize its faults, and accept that the Innu – as well as all the other nations – are not going anywhere, that they are not a problem settlers can make disappear.

"When a mutilated body is found hanging in a seedy motel in Philadelphia, forensics specialist Liam Dwyer assumes the crime scene will be business as usual. Instead, the victim turns out to be a woman he'd had an affair with before breaking it off to save his marriage. But there's a bigger problem: Liam has no memory of where he was or what he did on the night of the murder. Panicked, Liam turns to his brother, Sean, a homicide detective. Sean has his back, but incriminating evidence keeps piling up. From fingerprints to DNA, everything points to Liam, who must race against time and his department to uncover the truth--even if that truth is his own guilt. Yet as he digs deeper, dark secrets come to light, and Liam begins to suspect the killer might actually be Sean..."--Publisher's description.

One day, at age eleven, Leonardo had an awesome idea that he wanted to write a book. He didn't know if he wanted to make it about aliens or rappers; he thought for a couple of nanoseconds and decided he wanted to write a book about a girl named Kiki who fell off a cliff and entered a world that's, well, just like our world, but more real. You'll know what he means if you read the book. He finished the book at the age of twelve. "This is the end of my life. I look down thousands of feet at the Grand Canyon. Isee the sky, the sun, the beautiful clouds forming a picture in the sky. I take a step forward and look down at the vastness of the Grand Canyon. My heart races as I realize how high up I am from the ground. Suddenly, I lose my footing. My eyes open wide and I feel my body go numb . . ."

*Winner of the 2017 Dayton Literary Peace Prize* From Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Wood, a battlefield view of moral injury, the signature wound of America's 21st century wars. Most Americans are now familiar with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its prevalence among troops. In this groundbreaking new book, David Wood examines the far more pervasive yet less understood experience of those we send to war: moral injury, the violation of our fundamental values of right and wrong that so often occurs in the impossible moral dilemmas of modern conflict. Featuring portraits of combat veterans and leading mental health researchers, along with Wood's personal observations of war and the young Americans deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, What Have We Done offers an unflinching look at war and those who volunteer for it: the thrill and pride of service and, too often, the scars of moral injury. Impeccably researched and deeply personal, What Have We Done is a compassionate, finely drawn study of modern war and those caught up in it. It is a call to acknowledge our newest generation of veterans by listening intently to them and absorbing their stories; and, as new wars approach, to ponder the inevitable human costs of putting American "boots on the ground."

When it comes to your health, you know what you should weigh. You may know your cholesterol levels. You probably know your blood pressure. Maybe, just maybe, you even know your vitamin and mineral status. But do you know how healthy your brain is? The question is: "what have you done for your brain today?" Lifespan, that's simply the number of years you'll spend on this planet. Healthspan, however, is the number of years you will live in good health. Brainspan on the other hand is the number of years you will live in good health with excellent cognitive faculty. When you eat an optimal diet, practice your best lifestyle, and use nutrients that optimize brainspan, you are brainspanning! Why become a Brainspanner? The desire to become a brainspanner is a little different for everyone. Most of us want to live longer, in optimal health, and with full mental faculty. For Bryce Wylde, the author of Brainspanners, adopting this way of life was to prevent ending up like his mother - with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. With contributions from leading medical and health experts including: Dr. Andrew Weil Dr. Julian Bailes Dr. Mehmet Oz Dr. Dale Bredesen Dr. Rollin McCraty Ph.D. Dr. Daniel Amen Dr. Mark Gordon JJ Virgin Dr. Bill Sears Dr. Guy Chamberland Chris Kilham Dr. David Jenkins James Aspey Robb Wolf Nelson Dellis Yanjaa Wintersoul Dr. Mansoor Mohammed Ph.D.
