David Mark presents and signs Dog whistles, walk-backs, and washington handshakes Decoding the Jargon, Slang, and Bluster of American Political Speech In Dog Whistle, two seasoned political journalists define, in a funny-yet-informative way, what politicians really mean when they use odd-sounding, insider-ish phrases. Jeff Greenfield, the Emmy Award-winning television journalist and acclaimed author, wrote the forward to Dog Whistles. It will make for useful reading during the heat of election season.
Chanel Brenner presents and signs Vanilla Milk, A Memoir Told in Poems Vanilla Milk, a memoir told in poems, focuses on a mother’s and family response to the sudden death of the author's six-year-old son. These elegies might be read as written snapshots forming an elegiac album, depicting how a traumatic loss alters relationships, love, and parenting, and perceptions of danger, time, and life. Characterized by unsparing honesty, clarity, and restraint, the poems explore the limits inherent in “recovering” from the grief of losing a child, and the need to continue experiencing joy. Includes a 20-page album of family photographs.
“The poems inside of this book were torn from the heart of a woman whose suffering is so immense that it could swallow her whole. Instead of letting the staggering pain consume her, Chanel Brenner crafted these undeniably gorgeous meditations on the death of her son. I read Vanilla Milk four times before putting it down, because I was afraid to let it go. Chanel Brenner has crafted a resplendent work of art that is unrivaled in its ability to make sense of the ebbs and flows of grief.” MATTHEW LOGELIN, New York Times bestselling author of Two Kisses for Maddy
