More > “The Shipping News,” E. Annie Proulx states: “What don't happen is also news.” Marcella Grenga candidly lays down vignettes from rural life and scenes from a one-room schoolhouse. The tone spans from the undercurrent of love in the Woolf family to the quiet but often brutal realities of farm life. The toil on the farm and antics in the one-room school serve as backdrops for this warm, wise-cracking, poignant memoir of a time lost to chronology but not to memory. By grit and wit, the Woolf family survived the 1930s largely through their own down-home ingenuity. In the 1930s, 4,000,000 Americans were forced into despair and from their homes, including 250,000 children. That the Woolf family stayed intact by growing their own food is: “the news that didn’t happen.” W/illustrations by the authors.< Less

More > South not long after the end of slavery. It takes us through the trenches of World War I. Then crisscrosses the United States during the heyday of passenger train travel, with glimpses of Hollywood stars like Theda Bera and Gloria Swanson. As an African-American, Mr. Cook wrestled with the legacy of slavery, lynching and racism, even in his own family. His grandmothers were born into slavery. His father, the son of a white slave owner, disowned Raymond Cook because he “came black.” But the Black American culture of his youth offered Raymond Cook the love, spiritual strength and sense of worth that sustained him. One of its gifts, “that old time religion,” became the cornerstone of his life. Don’t miss this chance to get to know Raymond Cook. He led an ordinary life of extraordinary love, faith, and integrity.< Less

“Dad, the biopsy came back . . . it’s malignant!” The silence between them felt like a vacuum, an instantaneous void created in the long-distance phone space that separated them.... More > The shock of her words threatened to implode Terry’s mind; his brain seemed to shrink to a crushing, single point upon the word malignant. When he finally spoke, his usual articulate speech came out as fumbled mush that even he couldn’t understand. Thus begins the life-numbing three-year journey shared by Marti, an energized, independent mid-twenties daughter, and Terry, her fumbling, beleaguered father. Through a parent’s eyes, we experience Marti’s intense struggles throughout the tortured scourge of her chemotherapies, radiation, and two bone marrow transplant therapies. As his precious daughter fights to survive, Terry’s anguished, helpless depression finds him recalling his sometimes-traumatic youthful experiences during his upbringing on a post-war Minnesota family subsistence farm.< Less
