Featured Book - Sea of Crises by Marty Steere

seaofcrisis1.jpgFor decades, America’s last manned lunar mission, Apollo 18, has been shrouded in mystery. Conducted in eerie silence (following an inexplicable loss of all communication with the astronauts during the first moonwalk - just after Commander Bob Cartwright’s enigmatic statement, “That shouldn’t be here”), it ended in tragedy when the heat shield on the command capsule failed during re-entry, leaving three dead bodies inside burned beyond recognition and forever burying the answer to the question, What exactly happened in the Mare Crisium, or Sea of Crises? Thirty-six years later, however, Cartwright’s sons make a shocking discovery: The capsule that came down in the Pacific Ocean with three charred remains was not their father’s capsule. And the body they buried all those years before was not their father.

Featured Book - The Grasshopper King by David Stanley

thegrasshopperking.jpgA precocious young boy of five, Cosmas Sarvey is sent to a Catholic orphanage near Pittsburgh because his mother has left her abusive husband. His father now lives with two bums in a battered houseboat, plays his haunting violin at Sandman's Bar and Grill, and is tormented by a recurring nightmare in which the cry of the violin becomes the screams of his beaten wife. At nine years of age, Cosmas travels alone by streetcar and train through heavy snow, his first visit "home" for Christmas vacation. What begins as a simple trip home, becomes, by dint of his sensitivity and imagination, a transformative odyssey. This book explores Cosmas's growing feelings of independence and solitude as the tenuous relationships with his remaining family deteriorate, and he is further isolated from the few acquaintances who might have been lasting friends. Cosmas Sarvey illustrates the resilience of a youth transcending daunting circumstances, overcoming his sadness and insecurity with creative optimism as he faces an uncertain future. The Grasshopper King is Book I of a larger work titled A Land More Kind Than Home.
