This story of a doctor's harrowing experiences aboard a whaling vessel is one of the most thrilling and visceral novels I have ever read! Told in prose so sharply crafted it glistens like a chunk of polar ice, guiding the reader into a frozen and foreboding landscape and acquainting them with dark characters that are fully as treacherous. Ranks with the finest of Joseph Conrad. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

Magnificent, profound and delightfully readable. - Karen Frank
Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimed  New York Times  bestseller and international phenomenon Sapiens , returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity's future, and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.

From the #1 New York Times 
bestselling author of the smash bestseller  Orphan Train a stunning and atmospheric novel of friendship, passion, and art, inspired by Andrew Wyeth's mysterious and iconic painting 
Christina's World.

Director Fred Zinnemann's tense western was made during one of the most tumultuous times in Hollywood history. This is a chilling chronicle of the impact that anti-communist witch hunts had on the entertainment business in general and on individuals associated with "High Noon" in particular. Distinguished careers vanished overnight as studio heads bowed to the pressure applied by politicians drunk with their own power. Very few people suffered more unjustly than the film's writer, Carl Foreman. Some of the elements that made this period one of the nation's most perilous seem to be ominously reasserting themselves today. - Alden Graves

A Conjuring of Light

A provocative and important study of the different ideas Easterners and Westerners have about the self and society and what this means for current debates in art, education, geopolitics, and business.

By Peter Heller
This excellent novelist ( The Dog Stars  and  The Painter  are two personal favorites) introduces a wonderful character in the silver-haired, blue-blooded Celine, a private eye whose own fractured childhood fuels her work in reuniting separated families. Her current case involves a young woman whose father, a world-class National Geographic photographer, disappeared decades earlier, presumably dead by bear attack. Heller's story takes the reader from Long Island Sound to southern Vermont, Yellowstone to Argentina. Part rich family saga and part investigative thriller, Celine is both thought-provoking and page turning.

Mahatma Gandhi told a story about a king who wanted to know the meaning of peace. He was sent to a sage who gave him a grain of wheat. He didn't understand, so he locked it in a box. He asked his adviser about the wheat and was told, "It is very simple. As long as you keep this grain of wheat in this box, nothing is going to happen, it will eventually rot and perish and that will be the end of the story. But if you allow this grain of wheat to interact with all the elements, if you plant it in the soil, it will sprout and grow and very soon you will have a whole field of wheat. That is the meaning of peace: If we find peace in our hearts and if we keep it locked up for our own personal gains, it will perish with us, but if we let it interact with all the elements, it will sprout and grow and very soon we will have a world of peacemakers."
Whether you are looking to find peace in yourself, looking to learn from others who have been on this journey, or looking to share your peace with others, we would like to help. There are many books to inform and entertain and educate coming out weekly - the wisdom, optimism and joy of the world is available in books. Come in browse in a peaceful environment.

One of the striking features of the marches, in addition to the absence of violence and the presence of men and women and children of all ages and stages, of all races and ethnicities, were the signs.
