“Makes you want to spend a week—immediately—in New Orleans.” —Jeffrey A. Trachtenberg, Wall Street Journal A cocktail is more than a segue to dinner when it’s a Sazerac, an anise-laced drink of rye whiskey and bitters indigenous to New Orleans. For Wisconsin native Sara Roahen, a Sazerac is also a fine accompaniment to raw oysters, a looking glass into the cocktail culture of her own family—and one more way to gain a foothold in her beloved adopted city. Roahen’s stories of personal discovery introduce readers to New Orleans’ well-known signatures—gumbo, po-boys, red beans and rice—and its lesser-known gems: the pho of its Vietnamese immigrants, the braciolone of its Sicilians, and the ya-ka-mein of its street culture. By eating and cooking her way through a place as unique and unexpected as its infamous turducken, Roahen finds a home. And then Katrina. With humor, poignancy, and hope, she conjures up a city that reveled in its food traditions before the storm—and in many ways has been saved by them since.

A lot of people have made up their minds about Rachel Doležal. But none of them know her real story. In June 2015, the media “outed” Rachel Doležal as a white woman who had knowingly been “passing” as Black. When asked if she were African American during an interview about the hate crimes directed at her and her family, she hesitated before ending the interview and walking away. Some interpreted her reluctance to respond and hasty departure as dishonesty, while others assumed she lacked a reasonable explanation for the almost unprecedented way she identified herself. What determines your race? Is it your DNA? The community in which you were raised? The way others see you or the way you see yourself? With In Full Color, Rachel Doležal describes the path that led her from being a child of white evangelical parents to an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identifies as Black. Along the way, she recounts the deep emotional bond she formed with her four adopted Black siblings, the sense of belonging she felt while living in Black communities in Jackson, Mississippi, and Washington, DC, and the experiences that have shaped her along the way. Her story is nuanced and complex, and in the process of telling it, she forces us to consider race in an entirely new light—not as a biological imperative, but as a function of the experiences we have, the culture we embrace, and, ultimately, the identity we choose.

Lose yourself in a collection of poetry written by e. l. hannah. This collection has been compiled over e. l. hannah's high school and college career, highlighting the hardships and happiness that life brings. It is broken up into three sections; a section for sad poems, a section for happy poems, and a section for poems that are somewhere in between. Hannah shows that at any age, some days are bad, but things do get better. Even in all those bad days, there is hope for a brighter future and the reassurance that you are not alone. Section One titled "pluto" roughly 50 poems that revolve around the cold feelings life brings, similar to the feeling of being forgotten behind, growing smaller and smaller as you fade from someone's mind; a planet long forgotten. Poem topics include heartbreak, unrequited love, feeling lost in the great big world, worrying over insecurities, and depression.Section Two titled "floating" roughly 20 poems that are not quite cold, yet not quite warm, similar to the feeling of floating somewhere between happy and sad, where you can't quite place your finger on the feeling that fills you, but you know you're feeling something. You're merely existing, floating through space and time.Section Three titled "a shooting star" roughly 50 poems that embrace the warm, happy, and celebratory feelings in life. This section is full of poems that remind the reader of the awe and peacefulness of watching a star shoot across the sky, with the hope that whatever you wish upon the star will come true. Poem topics include friendship, love, laughter, beautiful memories, and hope.May you find peace in the words of these poems and let them gently guide you home.

Finding My Place Dyslexic Edition

In 2016, Anne Aly was the first Australian Muslim woman, the first Egyptian-born woman and the first counter-terrorism expert to be elected to Federal Parliament. She was also most probably the first parliamentarian to have seen Zoolander 23 times. 'What am I doing here?' she asked herself as she was sworn in with her hand on her father's copy of the Quran. It's a question the former professor has raised more than once since she arrived in Australia aged two bearing the name Azza Mahmoud Fawzy El Housseini Ali Al Serougi. The answer is a fascinating and moving story of a Muslim girl growing up in suburban Australia in the seventies, when the Brady Bunch appeared to epitomise Western family life and girls like Anne danced the divide between the expectations and values of their parents' culture and that of their adopted land. Told with warmth, humour and insight, Anne's book is an irresistible story by an irrepressible Australian woman who has already made her mark internationally and in public life.
