Hanging and Redemption of John Gordon

$19.99
More Info
On a frigid day in 1843, Amasa Sprague, a wealthy Yankee mill owner, left his mansion to check on his cattle. On the way, he was accosted and beaten beyond recognition, and his body was left facedown in the snow. What followed was a trial marked by judicial bias, witness perjury and societal bigotry that resulted in the conviction of twenty-nine-year-old Irish-Catholic John Gordon. He was sentenced to hang. Despite overwhelming evidence that the trial was flawed and newly discovered evidence that clearly exonerated him, an anti-Irish Catholic establishment refused him a new trial. On February 14, 1845, John Gordon became the last victim of capital punishment in Rhode Island. Local historian Paul F. Caranci brings this case to life, graphically describing the murder and exposing a corrupt judicial system, a biased newspaper and a bigoted society responsible for the unjust death of an innocent man.

Hitler's Assassin

$17.95
More Info
When Michael Cohen, a German-American Jew who spent the Second World War trapped in Germany, takes a New York magazine assignment to cover a war crimes trial in South America in 1952, he has no idea what he's getting into. In spite of his resistance, his life will become inextricably intertwined with the fate of defendant Johann Richter, a former German army officer whose father served on Hitler's General Staff and was involved in the plots to kill him. While Cohen and Richter both try to come to terms with pasts that have more in common than either would ever have imagined, the city of La Negra, high in the Andes where the trial is taking place, becomes a battleground, with both sides in the Cold War believing Richter knows who's helping Stalin steal nuclear secrets from the West.

"David Bergengren's Hitler's Assassin is a sophisticated, subtle story of intrigue and the psychological costs associated with the trials of memory. Written in a passionate, descriptive manner, the novel evokes tales told by some of the great espionage thriller authors of the post-war era. It is a rich, compelling book." - John Katzenbach, author of Hart's War.

"A court proceeding in 1952 in South America deals with the long shadow of World War II... The densely packed story, mixing the fictional with the historical, features effective pacing - the author takes his time - and solid prose... Ironies abound... The denouement ties things up nicely. A satisfying tale about a German (war crimes) defendant and an American journalist; an impressive first novel." - Kirkus Reviews

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.

I Am the Immaculate Conception

$20.00
More Info
Two thousand years ago, Jesus told the parable of the suffering beggar Lazarus and the rich man. Each had died, with Lazarus joining God in heaven for all eternity while the rich man was condemned to the flames of hell. "Send someone to warn my brothers," the rich man pleaded, "so they won't end up in this place of torment." But God said, "They have the prophets to warn them, your brothers can listen to them." To which the rich man responded, "Then let Lazarus return from the dead that they may believe." But God said, "They will not believe even if a man should rise from the dead."Over the last five hundred years we have witnessed a great many Apparitions of the Virgin Mary in places such as Guadalupe, Mexico; Lourdes, France; Fatima, Portugal. Each Apparition has carried a distinct, albeit similar, message. Pray the Rosary every day, sacrifice for the conversion of sinners and stop offending God. To do these things will mean the defeat of Satan and his Godless ways; an end to Communism and its worldly tendencies; and peace and harmony on earth. Regardless of the associated miracles witnessed by thousands, millions of people continue to deny the reality of the Apparitions and decry the message as a joke.This book recounts the historical life of Bernadette Soubirous of Lourdes, France. A rather ordinary nineteenth century life turned upside down at the tender age of fourteen by the miraculous events that occurred in a rock Grotto near the dumping grounds of Massabielle; the many Apparitions of a Woman who identified Herself as The Immaculate Conception; the miraculous cures that were attributed to a spring of common water, the Virgin's message to mankind; and the extraordinary relevance today for all that care to listen.But as Jesus said, "Even if someone should rise from the dead there would still be unbelievers." Isn't it a pity?

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.

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.

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.

Joe Calico (USED)

$5.99
More Info
A surprising and moving novel of fathers and sons, forgiveness and redemption, set in the world of Major League Baseball...


Whatever happened to Calico Joe?

It began quietly enough with a pulled hamstring. The first baseman for the Cubs AAA affiliate in Wichita went down as he rounded third and headed for home. The next day, Jim Hickman, the first baseman for the Cubs, injured his back. The team suddenly needed someone to play first, so they reached down to their AA club in Midland, Texas, and called up a twenty-one-year-old named Joe Castle. He was the hottest player in AA and creating a buzz.

In the summer of 1973 Joe Castle was the boy wonder of baseball, the greatest rookie anyone had ever seen. The kid from Calico Rock, Arkansas dazzled Cub fans as he hit home run after home run, politely tipping his hat to the crowd as he shattered all rookie records.

Calico Joe quickly became the idol of every baseball fan in America, including Paul Tracey, the young son of a hard-partying and hard-throwing Mets pitcher. On the day that Warren Tracey finally faced Calico Joe, Paul was in the stands, rooting for his idol but also for his Dad. Then Warren threw a fastball that would change their lives forever...

In John Grisham's new novel the baseball is thrilling, but it's what happens off the field that makes CALICO JOE a classic.

Kid Number One: Alan Hassenfeld and Hasbro

$35.00
More Info

PRE-ORDER "KID NUMBER ONE" TODAY! -- All books will ship prior to release date of 9/28/19.

Having escaped religious persecution in Eastern Europe in 1903, Alan Hassenfeld’s grandfather and great-uncle arrived in America as penniless teenage immigrants – refugees who went from hawking rags on the streets of New York City to building what became the world’s largest toy company, Hasbro. Alan’s father, Merrill, brought Mr. Potato Head and G.I. Joe to consumers and his only brother, Stephen, made Hasbro a Fortune 500 company and Hollywood player. Alan was the free spirit who wanted to write novels, date beautiful women and travel the world. He never wanted to run Hasbro, and no one ever believed he would – or could.

And then Stephen died, tragically of AIDS. “Kid Number One,” as Alan liked to call himself, was suddenly chairman and CEO. Silencing the skeptics, he took the company to greater heights – and then almost killed it with a series of bad decisions including Hasbro’s acquisition of rights to POKéMON. Putting ego aside, Hassenfeld gave his long-time lieutenant Al Verrecchia command and set in motion a plan whereby he would leave the corner office. Verrecchia saved the company, and after renewed success, he himself retired, leaving Hasbro in the hands of current CEO and chairman Brian Goldner, so highly regarded that he was brought onto the board of CBS.

With his fortune, Hassenfeld could have sailed into the sunset on a yacht, but instead, he went to work expanding the long family tradition of Tikkun Olam – “repairing the world” – begun by his grandfather and great-uncle, who, grateful to have survived, tirelessly helped immigrants and needy citizens of their new country. Alan Hassenfeld’s philanthropy has helped build two children’s hospitals, establish numerous educational and health programs, train young doctors and scientists, resettle refugees, promote peace in the Mideast and more. For decades, he also has been a highly visible advocate for national political and ethics reform, despite personal threats and the scorn of crooked politicians.

Kid Number One: A story of heart, soul and business, featuring Alan Hassenfeld and Hasbro, weaves these stories into a seamless, dramatic narrative that begins with the slaughter of Jews in 1903 Poland and continues to today -- when in an era of unchecked narcissism and greed, Hassenfeld, like Bill Gates, serves as a model for what people of great wealth can do when they put self aside. Kid Number One also chronicles the history of American toys -- and not just such Hasbro classics as Monopoly, Transformers and Star Wars, but also Mattel’s timeless brands including Barbie and many lesser-known toys by companies large and small, many no longer in existence.

Granted exclusive and unprecedented access inside a $5-billion toy and family-entertainment company and one of America’s leading if largely unknown philanthropies, G. Wayne Miller, author of the best-selling Toy Wars: The epic struggle between G.I. Joe, Barbie and the companies that make them, is uniquely qualified to tell this tale.

 

About the Author:

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.
