Okay Fine Whatever The Year I Went from Being Afraid of Everything to Only Being Afraid of Most Things

Okay Fine Whatever The Year I Went from Being Afraid of Everything to Only Being Afraid of Most Things

Author: Courtenay Hameister Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/01/2020

During the nine years Courtenay Hameister hosted NPR's Live Wire, she lived in a state of near-constant dread and anxiety and she didn't just fret about and fear her next radio show; she fretted about and feared everything. Until about a year ago, when she decided to take arms against a sea of anxieties and by opposing... maybe not end them but at least become a little more adventurous, spontaneous and comfortable in her own skin. OKAY FINE WHATEVER tells the story of Courtenay's year-long fight against her own nature, which took the form of pushing herself to try new things, things that scared her or made her uncomfortable, things that the average person might consider doing for half-a-second before deciding: nope. Things like: attending a fellatio class. She did that. She also spent an afternoon in a flotation tank, visited a sex club, got high (legally) in the middle of a workday and (perhaps scariest of all) had a session with a professional cuddler. And she came away with a lot of amusing and occasionally poignant stories about her adventures on the front lines of Mere Human Woman v. Fear. Refreshing, relateable and pee-your-pants funny, OKAY FINE WHATEVER reminds us that the tiniest amount of bravery is still bravery, and that no matter who your are, it's possible to fight complacency and grow bolder a little at a time.

For Better or For Worse The Complete Library, Vol. 4

For Better or For Worse The Complete Library, Vol. 4

Author: Lynn Johnston, Lynn Johnston Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/01/2020

This volume includes the story that earned Lynn Johnston a Pulitzer Prize nomination. The '90s start with a bang for the Pattersons when Elly finds out she is pregnant! Follow April Patterson as she grows from a toddler to a three-year-old, all in this single volume-but that isn't all the excitement in the house, especially when there is a teenager around. Michael gets his first summer job, a steady girlfriend, and a driver's license-if he passes the test. Adolescence is just as challenging for Elizabeth, who navigates middle school, learns to cope with the stigma of wearing glasses, and is peer-pressured into smoking a cigarette! Meanwhile, John succumbs to his (first) mid-life crisis when he buys his first model train. The highlight of this collection, however, is Lawrence's coming out story, a tender and compassionate tale of gender identity and acceptance for which Lynn was deservedly nominated for the newspaper industry's top honor. Includes every comic strip from December 10, 1989 to April 24, 1993. Available in January 2020.

The Little Book of Big Feelings An Illustrated Exploration of Life's Many Emotions

Author: Maureen Marzi Wilson Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/12/2019

From the author of the popular Introvert Doodles and Kind of Coping, Maureen Marzi Wilson is tackling all kinds of big feelings with over 175 relatable, supportive, and light-hearted comics in her signature style. We've been conditioned to think that the most acceptable response to How are you? is, I'm fine. But our emotions are much more complicated than that! Sometimes we feel a little annoyed, or elated, or afraid. And you know, that's okay! In The Little Book of Big Feelings, Maureen Marzi Wilson takes us on a journey of self-acceptance and validation. After all, our emotions are only reactions to experiences that we can learn from; there's no such thing as a bad emotion. It's okay to be scared, it's alright to feel hopeful, and it's perfectly fine to feel both at the same time. There is a wide range of human emotions, and it's time we start embracing each one!

The World According to Star Wars

The World According to Star Wars

Author: Cass R. Sunstein Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/12/2019

Delightful. -The Economist There's Santa Claus, Shakespeare, Mickey Mouse, the Bible, and then there's Star Wars. Nothing quite compares to sitting down with a young child and hearing the sound of John Williams's score as those beloved golden letters fill the screen. In this fun, erudite, and often moving book, Cass R. Sunstein explores the lessons of Star Wars as they relate to childhood, fathers, the Dark Side, rebellion, and redemption. As it turns out, Star Wars also has a lot to teach us about constitutional law, economics, and political uprisings. In rich detail, Sunstein tells the story of the films' wildly unanticipated success and explores why some things succeed while others fail. Ultimately, Sunstein argues, Star Wars is about freedom of choice and our never-ending ability to make the right decision when the chips are down. Written with buoyant prose and considerable heart, The World According to Star Wars shines a bright new light on the most beloved story of our time.
