Hope: A School, A Team, A Dream

$8.99
More Info

Hope High School in Providence, Rhode Island was once a model city school, graduating a wide range of students from different backgrounds. But the tumult of the 1960s and the drug wars of the 70s changed both Providence and Hope. Today, the aging school is primarily Hispanic and African-American, with kids traveling for miles by bus and foot each day.
Hope was known for its state championship basketball teams in the 1960s, but its 2012 team is much different. Disobedient, distracted, and overwhelmed by family troubles, with mismatched sneakers and a penchant for profanity and anger, these boys represent Coach Dave Nyblom's dream of a championship, however unlikely that might seem. Nyblom's mostly black players, including several who emigrated to Providence from war-torn Liberia, face gang violence, domestic uncertainty, drug problems, and a host of other issues. But with the unfailing support and guidance of Nyblom and other Hope coaches, their ragtag team gradually pulls together, overcoming every obstacle to find the faith and trust in themselves that Nyblom never stops teaching.
A look at a hidden world that just a few hundred yards from Brown University, Bill Reynolds' Hope is the inspiring true story of young men and their mentors pursuing one goal--a championship--but achieving so much more.

In Ty Cobb's Shadow: The Story of Napoleon LaJoie

$18.00
More Info
Napoleon who? Often called the Emperor of the Diamond, he was baseball's first superstar. Cy Young called him "the Babe Ruth of our time." When he endorsed a popular cigar, it was said that half of the nation's youth were sick the next day. Three cities claimed him as their hero, even as thousands upon thousands nationwide streamed through the turnstiles to see his mesmerizing talents on display. And yet, the Emperor's reign was too short, usurped by a brilliant streaking meteor named Ty Cobb. But Napoleon Lajoie had risen from the street and the mills. He would not go down without a battle. Many years later, Ty Cobb came to visit. Each man was but a few years away from death, but under the swaying palms of a warm Florida afternoon, the two gladiators of the game needed to talk. In the Shadow of Ty Cobb is the story of America's fanatical love affair with baseball. It is the story of baseball heroes who played the game as it will never be played again. From his impoverished French-Canadian childhood in the mills of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, to his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, he remains one of baseball's greatest Horatio Alger figures, a man who kept true to his roots and found light even in the shadows.

Does a day at the office leave you exhausted? It's because you're fighting off predators from one minute to the next. If you hope to survive, you had better be able to recognize them, and fast! 

The most deadly is the CEO. He or she chooses the hunting ground and the rules of engagement. The CEO may be the flamboyant big-spending-big-living Jim Fizz, the uninspiring bureaucrat, Chief Dumpling or the sneaky Spector. 

As their prey, you are ambushed, at least once a day, by your All Star Boss - the charming lazy Handicap, martinet Dwight Debit, workaholic Treadmill, stifling Den Mother, terrified Chicken Little, hired gun Wyatt Earp or the deeply venomous Dick Dujour. 

Just about every hour, attacks come at you from every direction, launched by your All Pro Colleagues. Watch out for teacher's pet Deputy Tool, malicious mis-informer Jerry Malaria, bionic blob Chuck Yeast, territory-grabbing Max Pilfer, and the man who would be chairman, E. Bunsen Burner III. 

You would think that your subordinates would help you defend your position against all this villainy. Nope! Ever heard the term "ankle-biter?" Just when you've defused the latest crisis from your boss and blunted the latest charge from your colleagues, who steps up the attack from behind? The insatiably needy Tar-Pit, or the party animal Boom-Boom, the sabotage expert-Termite, the WTF? UFO, and the perpetually aggrieved and noisy Affidavit. 

Yes, in order to survive each day, you need to know who they are. You need to know what they say, what they do and how they do it. And you need to see what they look like. This astonishing field guide to the corporate office includes their pictures. Perfect to use as dartboards in your home rec room.

Melodies of the Heart

$20.00
More Info
In this collection of poetry crafted by writer, author and poet Ana Arelys Cruz Cabrera, the reader will first be struck by her profound sense of place. In fact, throughout this work, it is often impossible to distinguish the profound love of her native Dominican Republic from the love of her adopted country, the United States. Perhaps it is a needless undertaking to even attempt to define this distinction. In a tangible sense, her work reflects the raw patriotism she demonstrates in her daily life - a life faithful to active community involvement, volunteerism and leadership in every community she serves. Throughout this work, the heart and soul of Ana Arelys's voice and ear shine through plainly, planted firmly in the traditional and shared American and Dominican values of family, legacy and spirit. These themes weave all through this work, binding it together, offering the reader a richness of message that only her unique voice could intend. Ana Arelys selects each word with great care, much like a composer might choose each note of a sonata, and whether consumed in silence or spoken aloud in either English or Spanish, her poems speak to a spectrum of human conditions. Friendship, justice, love, sorrow and even death, appear and perform as lively supporting actors on a stage, built from more universal messages. It has been said that the aim of poetry is to teach and delight. If so, then in Melodies of the Heart, we propose that Ana Arelys has achieved both.

Mine After Dark

$15.99
More Info

He barely knew her, and he can't forget her...

It's the dead of winter on Gansett Island, and Riley McCarthy's mood matches the lousy weather as he and his family work to bring their new business, McCarthy's Wayfarer, back to life. He can't deny that he's been in a funk since Nikki Stokes and her twin sister, Jordan, left the island last fall without saying goodbye. Riley, who'd been hired to fix the leaking roof at their grandmother's home, had liked talking to Nikki and had been looking forward to getting to know her better when she disappeared. Months later, he still thinks of her every day, even if he wishes he didn't. She's hard to forget.

As the manager for Jordan's reality TV career, Nikki finds herself square in the middle of the kind of drama she's had more than enough of, especially since her sister plans to go back to the husband who released a sex tape that devastated Jordan last fall. Enough is enough for Nikki, who quits her job and heads for her happy place--her grandmother's oceanfront home on Gansett Island, hoping she might run into the sweet, sexy guy who fixed the roof last fall. She liked talking to him and wonders if he stayed on the island for the winter. She really hopes he's still there.

The minute Riley hears that Nikki has come back to Gansett Island, he has to see her. He has to know if the spark of attraction he'd felt for her is still there, and more than anything, he'd love to know why he's thought more about a woman he met exactly twice than he ever has about anyone else. Come back to Gansett Island for Riley and Nikki's sweet, sexy story and catch up with many of your favorites, including Mac and Maddie, Adam and Abby, Shane and Katie and Kevin and Chelsea!

Moonlight Helmsman: Robert Smalls' Amazing Escape

$14.99
More Info

MOONLIGHT HELMSMAN Robert Smalls' Amazing Escape by Richard Maule

2017 recipient of 7 national awards for Historical Fiction, African American Literature, and Best First Novel.

He was alone in dreaming it could be done, but on a moonlit night in 1862, the slave Robert Smalls stole the Confederate flagship and sailed off to freedom. Richard Maule's novel, Moonlight Helmsman, brings to life one of the most amazing stories in our nation's history.

Born into bondage, Smalls longs for the sailor's life, and by the time the Civil War begins, he is assigned to pilot a Rebel ship in Charleston Harbor. Through a dramatic chain of events, Robert conspires to steal the boat, taking his friends and family along. His diverse crew includes his strong-minded wife Hannah, his preacher-turned-engineer Deke, and a fascinating madman named Spider Jefferson. Their intricate plot requires imagination, stealth, and the brazenness to defy certain death.

Taking the reader through treacherous channels, explosive mines, and enemy forts, the author leads us to a nail-biter of a climax. Faithful to the facts of history, Moonlight Helmsman is a gripping and inspiring testimony to the power of the human will. Kirkus Reviews says, "Maule skillfully renders Smalls' life through fictional embellishment, powerfully portraying his indomitable longing for liberty... a riveting story, and a sadly neglected sliver of American history... a seamless weave of historical investigation and fictional drama starring an African-American hero."
