Seven Sisters and a Brother

By

#1 New Release in 1960s History of the U.S. — A Story of Student Activists and Civil Rights

Meet the inspirational students: This narrative tells the story of seven women and one man at the heart of a sit-in protesting decreased enrollment and hiring of African Americans at Swarthmore College and demanding a Black Studies curriculum. The book, written by the former students themselves, also includes autobiographical chapters, providing a unique cross-sectional view into the lives of young people during the Civil Rights era.

Correcting media representation: For years the media and some in the school community portrayed the peaceful protest in a negative light—this collective narrative provides a very necessary and overdue retelling of the revolution that took place at Swarthmore College in 1969. The group of eight student protestors have only recently begun to receive credit for the school’s greater inclusiveness, as well as the influence their actions had on universities around the country.

Stories that inspire change: This book chronicles the historical eight-day sit-in at Swarthmore College, and the authors also include untold stories about their family backgrounds and their experiences as student activists. They share how friendships, out-of-the-box alliances, and a commitment to moral integrity strengthened them to push through and remain resilient in the face of adversity.

The incredible true story featured in Seven Sisters and a Brother will teach you:

  • No matter how old or established, institutions can change and will continue to change
  • How to identify fears and work to overcome them
  • That truth will prevail when we unite with others and refuse to accept surrender

If you’ve read titles such as Warriors Don’t CryBetween the World and Me, and Pulse of Perseverance, then you’ll love Seven Sisters and a Brother.

Black Man on the Titanic

By

#1 New Release in Caribbean & West Indies History — Discover the true story behind one of the black passengers on the Titanic

An Incredible Tragedy: Joseph Laroche was an anomaly among the passengers of the Titanic. He was exceptionally well-educated in a time when few black men had access to an education―and when even fewer were able to travel on a luxurious ship in first or second class.

Who was Joseph Laroche? Where was he going, and what was his story?

Rediscovered History: This biography recounts the life of Joseph Laroche, his part in the history of Haiti, and how he, as a 24-year-old father of two (soon to be three) children, ended up on the last ship of that era of glamourous travel. He was a direct descendant of the father of Haitian independence and related to two Haitian presidents. As an engineer, Laroche contributed to the construction of the Parisian railway and had a promising future ahead of him.

A Brilliant Biography: Ivorian-French writer Serge Bilé is the author of this fresh perspective on the tragedy that still fascinates millions and has inspired dozens of history books. With thorough research in Haiti and France, Bilé unearths the story of the intriguing figure of Joseph Laroche. This is a story of multi-cultural black history and of the political and natural forces that converged on one man.

Readers who were fascinated by the true stories behind Hidden Figures and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks will love this engaging tale.

Young and old, we are encouraged to love ourselves exactly as we are.

Connecting with the Universe and Your Own Deepest Desires

Open a conversation with the world around you: We have the ability to be in open communication with the Universe, the loving energy behind all creation.

Artist-photographer, popular radio host, and blogger Melisa Caprio helps us enter into deep conversation with the Universe through combining creative visualization with the power of intention.

Identify the desires of your heart: Too often we are so caught up in daily life that we don’t stop and ask ourselves what we truly desire. While it is tempting to stay in our comfort zone, our heart longs for more than the mundane. It desires manifestation. Caprio is here to foster that state of mindfulness and spirituality through photography, postcard art, written messages, and affirmations from others who are living their greatest desires.

Harness your own spiritual power: Creators, mystics, artists, and spiritualists will find representation and inspiration in this book. Likewise, those who have been putting their dreams on hold or who are dissatisfied with the status quo will find this book to be a visual guide to attaining the creativity they long for in their lives. Each of us possesses the power to bend the ear of the Universe and share what it is we want most.

The Illusion of Invincibility

By

A Glimpse Behind the Facade of Success

In The Illusion of Invincibility, Paul Williams and Andreas Krebs take a no-punches-held look at the stories we tell ourselves about business success. The rags-to-riches tale is tempting, but we don’t have to search far to see that most organizations rise for a time, only to experience a dramatic fall from grace. Just look at some of the companies that used to be household names: Nokia, AOL, Pan Am, Woolworth and Blockbuster.

Move from good to great. You’ll learn the secrets to clear-eyed, value-driven leadership with stories from top managers from international companies, major family businesses, start-ups, consulting firms, the public sector, and NGOs. They offer lessons on how to be a successful and reflective boss in an age of digitization and disruption. Each chapter includes a “stress test” to help you to take an honest look at your own organization and yourself.

Can leaders today be inspired by the Incas? You may be surprised. When the authors added a few days to a business trip to Peru, instead of relaxing, they found themselves exploring one of the greatest civilizations in human history...with unexpected lessons about successful businesses and great leadership.

The Illusion of Invincibility examines the why of success and failure. It’s a smart, funny, and radical look at how to build and sustain a great organization, inspired by those who have done it well...in today’s world and five hundred years ago.

A Bright Clean Mind

By

#1 New Release in Art Instruction ― Explore the Connection Between Diet and Creativity

If you liked Brain FoodBreaking the Habit of Being Yourself or Grain Brain, you’ll love A Bright Clean Mind.

Vegan Food is Everywhere: When people ask how author and certified vegan lifestyle coach Camille DeAngelis feels satisfied on a vegan diet, she thinks of the moment in James and the Giant Peach when the Grasshopper and the Centipede fret that they have nothing to eat until James points out that they're traveling inside an enormous piece of fruit. There is plenty, Camille reminds us in A Bright Clean Mind, a self-help motivational book for artists and creatives. Everything we could ever want to eat, and more, is all around us.

Imagine a Better Life: Because we live in a culture in which the eating and wearing of animals is taken for granted, we rarely recognize our limiting meat-centric mindset. But if we can employ our imagination to create worlds from scratch, we can surely use our imaginative power to envision a new way of seeing ourselves in relation to the animals we eat. On the other side of this brain transformation is a lifestyle that is ideal for our own health and emotional well-being and is much more environmentally sustainable.

Improve Your Work Flow: Camille believes that creative hobbies and habits reinvigorate one's primary work. But she knits, sews, embroiders, and bakes for the pleasure of it, too. Her productivity and brain power have been remarkable since going vegan seven years ago, and even more importantly, she no longer feels any of the frustration or uncertainty artists tend to accept as part of the creative process.

A Bright Clean Mind is perfect for every creative suffering from brain fog. In this book, you will discover:

  • The effect your diet may be having on your creativity and mood
  • Examples of how going vegan is basically giving yourself brain food
  • Ways to incorporate a vegan diet into your busy life

From the Basement

By

Following in the footsteps of music history/biography texts such as the infamous Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk and Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto, From the Basement details the rise in popularity of rock in the early 2000s. From cult loves like The Early November to giants like My Chemical Romance,From the Basement explores what it was that made indie & emo touch the hearts of so many people. Using first-hand accounts and interviews, the narrative content will be analytical and exploratory. From the Basement starts off by examining the mainstream and then grows into the sub-genres such as street political punk (Anti Flag), screamo, the more aggressive emo offshoot that got popular at around the same time, as well as the labels and the key figures that helped make this era what it was. Lastly, From the Basement will go into the cultural, social and psychological factors surrounding the genre; what ‘emotional’ music really is and the simultaneous admiration and mocking of the sad content therein. You were a black sheep if you listened to those bands, but they also made it onto MTV and now their music is on everyone’s best throwback playlists. The fashion and aesthetic of the time also follows that same storyline. You were a weirdo if you wore black nail polish, but then it became a fashion craze. People thought this type of rock was whiny, and a good part of it was. People thought it was immature, and a good part of it was. People thought those adjectives were negative, but From the Basement will explain why they’re not—the beauty of the gritty, wailing music that evolved into indie, alternative and emo.

Decide what success means for you: Are you trapped in a gilded cage of your own making? Conventionally successful, but not necessarily fulfilled?

A dismal one out of three people report feeling happy with their lives, so what do you do about it?

You Do You: Maki Moussavi knows firsthand how it feels to be stuck in the rut of conventional success. A former corporate career professional, Moussavi's early life was filled with messages of working hard, chasing the dream, getting degrees, and making money. After creating the “success” that she’d been taught to value, she found herself questioning how the hell she ended up feeling stuck, restless and unfulfilled. But through a journey of self-examination, she learned how to raise the bar of self-expectation and thrive. And now, The High Achiever’s Guide shares her best tools and processes to determine what fulfillment means to you, so you can thrive with empowered confidence.

The High Achiever’s Guide pilots you through four major themes of personal development:

Eating Out Can Be Healthy Too

The ultimate guide for dining out guilt-free. The Restaurant Diet, now in its second edition, offers a diet plan that takes pressure off dieters who don’t always have time for healthy cooking. Using his easy-to-follow plan, author Fred Bollaci lost 150 pounds—and kept them off.

The secret to a plan you can maintain. Fred Bollaci grew up in an Italian family. When his parents divorced he developed eating compulsions. He tried every fad diet and every new food recipe book, but failed to find a lasting solution. With the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist, he was able to devise a four-phase diet and exercise plan―that worked! In this book Fred reveals the real secret: it’s about why one overeats in the first place. Fred shares how to tackle emotional issues that lead to compulsive overeating through an integrated spiritual approach.

Why integrating spirituality is so important. After a “near death” experience and “spiritual awakening,” Fred learned to like and eventually love himself enough to get his priorities straight, lose a ton of weight, eat better, exercise, and adopt an attitude of gratitude for his miraculous second chance. He has discovered his life’s purpose, found true happiness and contentment, improved every area of his life, and lives a life he never could have imagined. Fred has helped coach and inspire hundreds of clients to lose thousands of pounds with his compassionate approach. He looks great, feels great, and can enjoy a healthy gourmet lifestyle wherever he is. If he can become his best self, then you can too.

Tips in The Restaurant Diet include how to:

  • Read a menu
  • Ask key questions of the restaurant staff
  • Integrate a spiritual component into your diet and exercise plan

Readers who have tried books like Keto Meal Prep by FlavCityKeto Restaurant Favorites or Eat What You Love will appreciate the tips and advice in The Restaurant Diet, 2nd Edition.

Unsung America

By

Immigration Stories–A Fight for Justice and Freedom

If you liked The Book of Awesome Women by Becca Anderson, Dear America by Jose Antonio Vargas, or American Like Me: Reflections on Life Between Cultures by America Ferrara, you’ll love Unsung America.

Positive and heroic stories. Far too often, immigrants are demonized and scapegoated, when they should be celebrated as heroes and revolutionaries. This book strings together both triumphant and painful tales of immigrants who blazed trails and broke barriers in the fight for fundamental human rights.

Unsung Heroes. These are ordinary people who have used their own stories on the fight for citizenship to illustrate their triumphs and trials as immigrants in a new land. Each uses a different strategy and tactics; what works for one does not work for another. They all have one thing in common, however—a desire for racial and social justice.

Unsung America will change the way you view immigrants and refugees. Prerna Lal, who penned Unsung America, is a naturalized United States citizen, born and raised in the Fiji Islands with roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. A clinical law professor, Lal is a frequent writer on immigration, racial justice, sexual orientation, and how these forces intersect. She is a graduate of The George Washington University Law School, and works as an immigration attorney.

In this celebratory book, you will discover:

  • Powerful theories of social change, and how what seems radical in one era can be normalized in the next
  • How the fight for citizenship is interconnected and interrelated to other struggles such as the civil rights movement and the LGBT movement
  • Stories about ordinary people doing extraordinary things and how you, too, can be a force for good in the world
