Thriving Life: How to Live Your Best Life No Matter the Cards You're Dealt

Author: Laura Berg Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: October 2021

We have all struggled to take control of our futures or build the life of our dreams at some point. Thriving Life will show you how to take charge of your own life and transform the way you view yourself, your relationships, and your experiences. Professor and therapist Laura Berg is a trauma survivor who understands struggle and knows how to overcome it. She created the methods in this book to help people everywhere when they need a boost, no matter what is going on in their lives. Thriving Life serves as a reference, with each chapter discussing a specific issue that many people struggle with, such as defining your own happiness, dealing with rejection, and setting limits in relationships. With practical tips and a step-by-step approach to help you find what makes you happy, Laura will teach you how to stop victimizing yourself and find strength in asking for help. Unlike other books that either give guidance or strictly tell the author's own story, Thriving Life will help you navigate life's various problems while also discussing the author's own traumas and how she overcame them. By revealing her past obstacles and pain, Laura will show you that everyone has their share of struggles, but with the right tools and attitude, it is possible to overcome and thrive.

Loving Frank: A Novel Audiobook

Loving Frank: A Novel

Author: Nancy Horan Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: February 2021

I have been standing on the side of life, watching it float by. I want to swim in the river. I want to feel the current. So writes Mamah Borthwick Cheney in her diary as she struggles to justify her clandestine love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright. Four years earlier, in 1903, Mamah and her husband, Edwin, had commissioned the renowned architect to design a new home for them. During the construction of the house, a powerful attraction developed between Mamah and Frank, and in time the lovers, each married with children, embarked on a course that would shock Chicago society and forever change their lives. In this ambitious debut novel, fact and fiction blend together brilliantly. While scholars have largely relegated Mamah to a footnote in the life of America’s greatest architect, author Nancy Horan gives full weight to their dramatic love story and illuminates Cheney’s profound influence on Wright. Drawing on years of research, Horan weaves little-known facts into a compelling narrative, vividly portraying the conflicts and struggles of a woman forced to choose between the roles of mother, wife, lover, and intellectual. Horan’s Mamah is a woman seeking to find her own place, her own creative calling in the world. Mamah’s is an unforgettable journey marked by choices that reshape her notions of love and responsibility, leading inexorably ultimately lead to this novel’s stunning conclusion. Elegantly written and remarkably rich in detail, Loving Frank is a fitting tribute to a courageous woman, a national icon, and their timeless love story. Praise for Loving Frank: “Loving Frank is one of those novels that takes over your life. It’s mesmerizing and fascinating–filled with complex characters, deep passions, tactile descriptions of astonishing architecture, and the colorful immediacy of daily life a hundred years ago–all gathered into a story that unfolds with riveting urgency.” —Lauren Belfer, author of City of Light “This graceful, assured first novel tells the remarkable story of the long-lived affair between Frank Lloyd Wright, a passionate and impossible figure, and Mamah Cheney, a married woman whom Wright beguiled and led beyond the restraint of convention. It is engrossing, provocative reading.” —Scott Turow “It takes great courage to write a novel about historical people, and in particular to give voice to someone as mythic as Frank Lloyd Wright. This beautifully written novel about Mamah Cheney and Frank Lloyd Wright’s love affair is vivid and intelligent, unsentimental and compassionate.” —Jane Hamilton “I admire this novel, adore this novel, for so many reasons: The intelligence and lyricism of the prose. The attention to period detail. The epic proportions of this most fascinating love story. Mamah Cheney has been in my head and heart and soul since reading this book; I doubt she’ ll ever leave.” —Elizabeth Berg

The Body in Pain: The Making and Unmaking of the World Audiobook

The Body in Pain: The Making and Unmaking of the World

Author: Elaine Scarry Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: January 2021

Elaine Scarry bases her study on a wide range of sources: literature and art, medical case histories, documents on torture compiled by Amnesty International, legal transcripts of personal injury trials, and military and strategic writings by such figures as Clausewitz, Churchill, Liddell Hart, and Kissinger, She weaves these into her discussion with an eloquence, humanity, and insight that recall the writings of Hannah Arendt and Jean-Paul Sartre. Scarry begins with the fact of pain's inexpressibility. Not only is physical pain enormously difficult to describe in words-confronted with it, Virginia Woolf once noted, 'language runs dry'-it also actively destroys language, reducing sufferers in the most extreme instances to an inarticulate state of cries and moans. Scarry analyzes the political ramifications of deliberately inflicted pain, specifically in the cases of torture and warfare, and shows how to be fictive. From these actions of 'unmaking' Scarry turns finally to the actions of 'making'-the examples of artistic and cultural creation that work against pain and the debased uses that are made of it. Challenging and inventive, The Body in Pain is landmark work that promises to spark widespread debate.

For the first time in centuries, life seemed to be going her way. But now, an incident with a dangerous magical device has left her two natures separated into duplicate bodies, both fighting to survive while they search for the truth about their past, and the key to their future.

The Networked Nonprofit: Connecting with Social Media to Drive Change Audiobook

The Networked Nonprofit: Connecting with Social Media to Drive Change

Author: Allison Fine, Beth Kanter, Randi Zuckerberg Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: July 2020

The array of social media can be very complex looking from the outside -- a beeping, flashing, chattering din. But upon closer inspection, social media and social networks respond to the same needs that drive human beings; the need to connect with one another in meaningful ways through conversation. Social change happens through conversations, and the job of nonprofits is to organize themselves in such ways as to catalyze and manage those conversations and networks.  Network management includes, but isnt limited to, such important tenets as providing multiple access points for supporters to get into and out of organization, participating in conversations about your cause rather than presenting strategic plans and organizational charts, sharing rather than grabbing credit, and leveraging social capital rather than owning and operating all of the heavy organization machinery yourself. Organizations work from the inside out; networks work from the outside in. The Networked Nonprofit makes sense of the existing mishmash of data, blogs and books about social media in a connected world and social change and applies this knowldege specifically to social change organizations. It offers a set of guiding principles to help leaders navigate the transition from top-down organizations to a networked approach. Each chapter provides specific strategies for implementation and 'secrets to success' according to activists who have learned how to use new social media effectively themselves.

The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit: My Family's Exodus from Old Cairo to the New World

Author: Lucette Lagnado Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: May 2020

“Poignant . . . deeply personal . . . an indelible history of the largely forgotten Jews of Egypt . . . ”—Miami Herald In vivid and graceful prose, Lucette Lagnado re-creates the majesty and cosmopolitan glamour of Cairo in the years before Gamal Abdel Nasser’s rise to power. With Nasser’s nationalization of Egyptian industry, her father, Leon, a boulevardier who conducted business in his white sharkskin suit, loses everything, and departs with the family for any land that will take them. The poverty and hardships they encounter in their flight from Cairo to Paris to New York are strikingly juxtaposed against the beauty and comforts of the lives they left behind.  An inversion of the American dream set against the stunning portraits of three world cities, Lucette Lagnado’s memoir offers a grand and sweeping story of faith, tradition, tragedy, and triumph.

Kidnapped by a Client: The Incredible True Story of an Attorney's Fight for Justice Audiobook

Kidnapped by a Client: The Incredible True Story of an Attorney's Fight for Justice

Author: Sharon R. Muse Jd Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: January 2020

“He promised to kill me when he got out. I believed him. If I wanted justice, I had to fight both him and the courts...maybe kill him first. If I didn’t do something, I was going to die.” This is not a manufactured dialogue from a thriller but the words of attorney Sharon Muse. They came after she survived an attempted kidnapping, rape, and murder at the hands of Hank Morrison, a former client. On April 7, 2006, Muse miraculously escaped from the sociopathic Morrison, only to find that the threat to her life was just beginning. Ineptitude in the justice system threatened to release Morrison and allow him the opportunity to finish the job, which he adamantly pledged to do. Muse would have to fight at every step to ensure her safety. Muse would act as her own advocate, investigator, legal counsel, and bodyguard in the years following the event. Kidnapped by a Client covers the brutal kidnapping, two trials, two appeals, procedural errors galore, one Supreme Court reversal, and even Muse’s intricate plan to murder Morrison before he could get to her. Muse would not ultimately execute that plan, and she would emerge victorious in the legal battle thanks to her faith and her own determination and legal acumen. But her safety is not ensured: Morrison is up for parole in 2026. Muse regularly monitors his status. Muse recounts her stranger-than-fiction story in Kidnapped by a Client. Muse analyzes the failures of the legal system, the mistakes she made, the steps she took to protect herself, and how she has coped with trauma. Readers will find not only a compelling narrative, but also insight into how to protect oneself and ensure one’s own safety and well-being.
