Jelline Smith lives with her husband in Decatur, Illinois. The couple has one son and seven grandchildren. She loves the Midwest but longs for her home state of Mississippi. She always said that some day she would return to Mississippi to live, but there was always something to stop her such as a better paying job or a better way of living. The main reason for staying is her family, parents and siblings, living in Decatur. She simply couldn¿t bear the thought of leaving them. The author believes in and loves her family, but her love for God is greater. She gives God the glory for the writing of this book. Although she knows God has brought her a long way, she tries to refrain from the phrase and points to personal motivation. Jelline always knew she wanted to be a writer ever since she was a little girl. She was always making up songs and poems, but nothing ever came of them. Some day, she told herself, she would see her name in print. ¿I will see my dream come true, and people enjoying it as much as I enjoyed writing it,¿ Jelline said. A friend once told her if she ever wrote a book to make sure it was about something she knew because it takes more to write about something you don¿t know about than it takes to write about what you know. Jelline said her childhood was what she knew best.

In a world molded by commonality, the Bartleby brothers have always found themselves lost, but when a man from The Agency tests their analytical skills it becomes obvious what their function is. Gibson “Gib” Bartleby is a fourteen-year-old kid with a genius intellect, and he’s smart enough to acknowledge that he might as well be a single-celled organism next to his autistic brother, Jack, who is literally addicted to reading. Struggling to find the place where he and his brother can thrive, or even function for that matter, Gib has become so cynical that he can barely stand himself. When a government agent walks into his brother’s classroom posing questions and riddles that no one should be able to answer, Gib takes the opportunity to show off what he and his brother can do. Whether a twist of fate or something planned from the beginning, Gib and Jack Bartleby become important liaisons to the mysterious government agency trying to stop a serial killer. This 84,000 word novel follows the first person perspective of Gib as he tries to hold the family he has left together for long enough to stop a killer who wants to challenge his brother’s abilities.

“A rare triumph” (The New York Times Book Review), this powerful memoir about the divergent paths taken by two brothers is a classic work from one of the greatest figures in American literature: a reflection on John Edgar Wideman’s family and his brother’s incarceration—a classic that is as relevant now as when originally published in 1984. A “brave and brilliant” (The Philadelphia Inquirer) portrait of lives arriving at different destinies, the classic John Edgar Wideman memoir, Brothers and Keepers, is a haunting portrait of two brothers—one an award-winning writer, the other a fugitive wanted for a robbery that resulted in a murder. Wideman recalls the capture of his younger brother, Robby, details the subsequent trials that resulted in a sentence of life in prison, and provides vivid views of the American prison system. A gripping, unsettling account, Brothers and Keepers weighs the bonds of blood, affection, and guilt that connect Wideman and his brother and measures the distance that lies between them. “If you care at all about brotherhood and dignity…this is a must-read book” (The Denver Post). With a new afterword by his brother Robert Wideman, recently released after more than fifty years in prison.

To be sure, some brothers and sisters have relationships that are easy. But oh, some relationships can be fraught. Confusing, too: How can two people share the same parents and turn out to be entirely different? Marie Brenner's brother, Carl—yin to her yang, red state to her blue state—lived in Texas and in the apple country of Washington state, cultivating his orchards, polishing his guns, and (no doubt causing their grandfather Isidor to turn in his grave) attending church, while Marie, a world-class journalist and bestselling author, led a sophisticated life among the "New York libs" her brother loathed. From their earliest days there was a gulf between them, well documented in testy letters and telling photos: "I am a textbook younger child . . . training as bête noir to my brother," Brenner writes. "He's barely six years old and has already developed the Carl Look. It's the expression that the rabbit gets in Watership Down when it goes tharn, freezes in the light." After many years apart, a medical crisis pushed them back into each other's lives. Marie temporarily abandoned her job at Vanity Fair magazine, her friends, and her husband to try to help her brother. Except that Carl fought her every step of the way. "I told you to stay away from the apple country," he barked when she showed up. And, "Don't tell anyone out here you're from New York City. They'll get the wrong idea." As usual, Marie—a reporter who has exposed big Tobacco scandals and Enron—irritated her brother and ignored his orders. She trained her formidable investigative skills on finding treatments to help her brother medically. And she dug into the past of the brilliant and contentious Brenner family, seeking in that complicated story a cure, too, for what ailed her relationship with Carl. If only they could find common ground, she reasoned, all would be well. Brothers and sisters, Apples and Oranges. Marie Brenner has written an extraordinary memoir—one that is heartbreakingly honest, funny and true. It's a book that even her brother could love.

This book is about a woman who died and was given a task from God. She was allowed to come back from death to deliver God’s directive to all. I’m writing this book for two reasons. The first is to tell all believers in the church of Jesus Christ to do your works while it is day, for when night comes, no man will be able to work. Only what we do for Christ will last. When we die, we can only take our work for Jesus with us. Naked we came into the world, and naked we will leave this world. Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” The second reason is to honor my parents. I leave this book to the next generation. We have a great inheritance through Jesus our Lord and Savior. As the angel was escorting me back to earth; I heard Jesus call my name while I was in mid air, and when I looked back Jesus was standing on the clouds. His hair was long and white as the clouds, His hair was blowing in the wind. And He spoke these words to me, “Sonia, tell all your Sisters and Brothers I said to do their Work.

Unprecedented in scope and detail, Brothers and Strangers is a vivid history of how the mythic Africa of the black American imagination ran into the realities of Africa the place. In the 1920s, Marcus Garvey—convinced that freedom from oppression was not possible for blacks in the Americas—led the last great African American emigrationist movement. His U.S.-based Universal Negro Improvement Association worked with the Liberian government to create a homeland for African Americans. Ibrahim Sundiata explores the paradox at the core of this project: Liberia, the chosen destination, was itself racked by class and ethnic divisions and—like other nations in colonial Africa—marred by labor abuse. In an account based on extensive archival research, including work in the Liberian National Archives, Sundiata explains how Garvey’s plan collapsed when faced with opposition from the Liberian elite, opposition that belied his vision of a unified Black World. In 1930 the League of Nations investigated labor conditions and, damningly, the United States, land of lynching and Jim Crow, accused Liberia of promoting “conditions analogous to slavery.” Subsequently various plans were put forward for a League Mandate or an American administration to put down slavery and “modernize” the country. Threatened with a loss of its independence, the Liberian government turned to its “brothers beyond the sea” for support. A varied group of white and black anti-imperialists, among them W. E. B. Du Bois, took up the country’s cause. In revealing the struggle of conscience that bedeviled many in the black world in the past, Sundiata casts light on a human rights predicament which, he points out, continues in twenty-first-century African nations as disparate as Sudan, Mauritania, and the Ivory Coast.
