Many years ago, strong hands planted a tiny tree into the ground. Throughout the years, the tree grew and grew and became a wondrous sight. Its many branches offered shade in the summer and provided a home to birds and shelter to animals. It became known as the family tree with its branches representing each person in the family. One night a strong wind tore a branch from the family tree. The loving hands that planted the tree helped ease the feeling of loss by coming up with a creative plan for the broken branch. A picture book for all ages, The Family Tree shares an inspiring promise of hope in the aftermath of a storm.

An award-winning journalist’s voyage into her family history and her quest to face the storms she encounters there. In August Gale, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Barbara Walsh—who has interviewed killers, bad cops, and crooked politicians in the course of her career—faces the most challenging story of her lifetime: asking her father about his childhood pain. In the process, she takes us on two heartrending odysseys: one into a deadly Newfoundland hurricane and the lives of schooner fishermen who relied on God and the wind to carry them home; the other, into a squall stirred by a man with many secrets: a grandfather who remained a mystery until long after his death. Sixty-eight years after the hurricane that claimed several of her ancestors, Walsh searches for memories of the August gale and the grandfather who abandoned her dad as a young boy. Together, she and her father journey to Newfoundland to learn about the 1935 storm, and along the way her dad begins to talk about the man he cannot forgive. As she recreates the scenes of the violent hurricane and a small boy's tender past, she holds onto a hidden desire: to heal her father and redeem the grandfather she has never met.

Family Tree is the new collection of poems from award winning poet, Joaquin Zihuatanejo. This collection is a testimony of life and love that follows the journey of one barrio boy from street kid to street poet. These poems and stories vividly capture the essence of what it is to grow from a boy with dirty face who found refuge in a world of stories and poems to an award winning teacher and poet. Both open and closed forms collide in this tour de force that grabs the reader pulling him into the speaker's existence. You may find yourself reading and rereading these poems out loud as these poems were meant to have life breathed into them. The collection includes "Reinventing the Enemy's Language," "HOPE 5 MILES," "Final Exam for My Father," all poems that Joaquin has performed in his one-man spoken word show and at poetry slams all over the country, but the bulk of the collection is made up of new poems that are vivid in their honesty and rich in their beauty. The collection concludes with a short story and an excerpt from the forthcoming novel, Guerro.

Humans seemingly spring into existence out of nowhere with no explanations, no operations manuals, no "help menus", and no instructions or advice on what we are expected to do. The human species has had to start from scratch in trying to figure out what is going on, who we are, and what is the meaning of everything. Whereas the sciences try to understand how the world operates, and how we can effectively interact with it, philosophy is preoccupied with questions about the significance (meaning) of it all. This book is an introduction to philosophy.
