Who Do You Think You Are?: A Memoir Audiobook

Who Do You Think You Are?: A Memoir

Author: Alyse Myers Narrator: Lorna Raver Release Date: May 2008

Growing up in Queens in the 1960s, Alyse Myers always yearned for more in life, as she watched her mother settle for an unhappy marriage, an unsatisfying job, and a joyless existence. Alyse rejects everything about her mother's life, but after her death she inherits a small wooden box with contents that reveal a poignant and deeply moving truth. The dysfunctional relationship between Myers and her mother is poignant and heartbreaking at times. This is an honest look at how two very different and conflicting personalities inhabit the mother-daughter relationship and how Myers reconciles her relationship with her mother after her death. "The greatest gift Myers' mother gave her daughter was the determination to create a different sort of life for herself."-Publishers Weekly

What Would You Do If You Had No Fear: Living Your Dreams While Quakin' in Your Boots Audiobook

What Would You Do If You Had No Fear: Living Your Dreams While Quakin' in Your Boots

Author: Diane Conway Narrator: Lorna Raver Release Date: October 2009

For this book, author Diane Conway approached a police officer, a waitress, a politician, a lawyer, a cab driver, and many others, and asked them each the same question: "What would you do if you had no fear?" The results, chronicled in this book, were both surprising and enlightening. Her respondents told her their secrets, their long-hidden dreams, and their fears. Their dreams included quitting mind-numbing jobs, applying to medical school, buying tickets to South America, finding true love, quitting drinking, or having an affair. The distance between dreaming and doing, according to Conway, is surprisingly short. In What Would You Do If You Had No Fear? her fresh voice and "Studs Terkel in drag persona" challenge readers to stop, open their hearts, and truly live. Included are self-tests, quizzes, growth exercises, and inspiring quotes for realizing one's fear-free potential. "These are stories of women and men who have moved beyond their fears in order to change, to soar, even to fail, whose adventures and humanity can't help but inspire the rest of us."-Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird and Traveling Mercies

What Maisie Knew Audiobook

What Maisie Knew

Author: Henry James Narrator: Lorna Raver Release Date: January 2012

In this classic tale of the death of childhood, there is a savage comedy that owes much to Dickens. But for his portrayal of the child's capacity for intelligent wonder, James summons all the subtlety he devotes elsewhere to his most celebrated adult protagonists. In the aftermath of an acrimonious divorce, young Maisie Farange finds herself shuttled back and forth between her father and mother and their new spouses, all of whom are monstrously self-involved. Neglected and exploited by everyone around her, Maisie herself becomes a pretext for sexual intrigue when her stepparents become attracted to each other. As Maisie opens her young eyes on this distinctly modern world, the death of her childhood provides Henry James with a vehicle for scathing social satire. "Reading Henry James is like putting a new faculty to the test. This is the true morality."-Anita Brookner, Booker Prize-winning novelist

This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War Audiobook

This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War

Author: Drew Gilpin Faust Narrator: Lorna Raver Release Date: March 2008

During the Civil War 620,000 soldiers lost their lives. The equivalent proportion of today's population would be six million. This Republic of Suffering explores the impact of the enormous death toll from every angle: material, political, intellectual, and spiritual. Drew Gilpin Faust delineates the ways death changed not only individual lives but the life of the nation. She describes how survivors mourned and how a deeply religious culture reconciled the slaughter with its belief in a benevolent God. Throughout, the voices of soldiers and their families, of statesmen, generals, preachers, poets, surgeons, and nurses, of Northerners and Southerners, slaveholders and freed people, of the most exalted and the most humble are brought together to give us a vivid understanding of the Civil War's most fundamental and widely shared reality. "Beautifully written, honest, and penetrating, Faust's book about 'the work of death' in fact brings death to life. Anyone wanting to understand the 'real war' and its transcendent meaning must face the facts Faust arrays before us....Essential."-Library Journal

These Schools Belong to You and Me: Why We Can't Afford to Abandon Our Public Schools Audiobook

These Schools Belong to You and Me: Why We Can't Afford to Abandon Our Public Schools

Author: Deborah Meier, Emily Gasoi Narrator: Emily Zeller, Lorna Raver Release Date: September 2017

A challenge to narrow, profit-driven conceptions of school success and an argument for protecting public education to ensure that all students become competent citizens in a vibrant democracy In These Schools Belong to You and Me, MacArthur award-winning educator, reformer, and author Deborah Meier draws on her fifty-plus years of experience to argue that the purpose of universal education is to provide young people with an "apprenticeship for citizenship in a democracy." Through an intergenerational exchange with her former colleague and fellow educator Emily Gasoi, the coauthors analyze the last several decades of education reform, challenging narrow profit-driven conceptions of school success. Reflecting on the trajectory of education and social policies that are leading our country further from rule "of, for, and by the people," the authors apply their extensive knowledge and years of research to address the question of how public education must change in order to counter the erosion of democratic spirit and practice in schools and in the nation as a whole. Meier and Gasoi candidly reflect on the successes, missteps, and challenges they experienced working in democratically governed schools, demonstrating that it is possible to provide an enriched education to all students, not just the privileged few. Arguing that public education and democracy are inextricably bound, and pushing against the tide of privatization, These Schools Belong to You and Me is a rousing call to both save and improve public schools to ensure that all students are empowered to help shape our future democracy.

THE PLANETS is Dava Sobel's sweeping look at our heavenly galaxy. In the spirit of Longitude and Galileo's Daughter, Sobel once again brings science and history deftly to life as she explores the origins of the planets and reveals the exotic environments that exist in each of these fascinating alien worlds.

THE PLANETS tells the story of each member of our solar family, from their discovery, both mythic and historic, to the latest data from the modern era's robotic space probes and images from the Hubble Space Telescope. Whether revealing what hides behind Venus' cocoon of acid clouds, describing Jupiter's 'Technicolor lightning bolts and shimmering sheets of auroras,' or capturing first-hand the excitement at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory when the first pictures from Voyager were beamed to earth, Dava Sobel's unique tour of the solar family is filled with fascination and poetry. In lyrical prose THE PLANETS gives a breathtaking, close-up perspective on those heavenly bodies that have captured the imagination of humanity since that first glimpse at the glittering night skies. This is an extraordinary book of science, history, biography and storytelling. Timely and timeless, THE PLANETS will engage and delight as it unravels the mysteries of the cosmos.
