The Teacher’s Book of Days is a motivational and inspirational book for all individuals who work with young people, whether in public or private schools, youth organizations, sports, tutoring, or for parents. The book is authored by Susan Clark Studer, Ph.D., a professor of education, who has taught all ages; worked with children in clubs, scouts, and sports; currently teaches teachers enrolled in education programs ; and who is the parent of two grown children. This book is for all adults who are entrusted with young lives. Written in a readable format, The Teacher’s Book of Days is a combination of informative and thoughtprovoking daily readings designed to encourage the reader and help educators through their busy and oftentimes stressful days. Placing the Book of Days in perspective, it is a combination of short, uplifting, motivational and informative thoughts, gleaning from the writings of educators past and present and personal experience. The daily passages are not written for any particular year, and dates are generic, therefore it will be salable year after year. Teachers are a very valuable resource, members of society who often do not receive the encouragement they need. This is even truer today in a school atmosphere of test scores, shrinking budgets, and children growing up in less than ideal educative circumstances. This book is designed to not only encourage, but to empower educators to become strong teachers of society’s children. Teachers can buy this book for themselves or give it as gifts to colleagues and friends. Parents may buy this book as teacher gifts or as tokens of appreciation for their child‘s teacher. School districts may give it to teachers during teacher appreciation week or have it available in on site libraries for staff members to read or to quote from for daily announcements. Universities may give it to graduating future teachers. The potential is great for this book’s success.

From one of our most admired writers: a collection of stories set mainly in the fertile imaginative landscape of the American West, written with the terse lyricism, cinematic detail, and wry humor that have become Sam Shepard’s trademarks. A man traveling down Highway 90 West gets trapped alone overnight inside a Cracker Barrel restaurant, where he is tormented by an endless loop of Shania Twain songs on the overhead sound system. A wandering actor returns to his hometown against his better instincts and runs into an old friend, who recounts their teenage days of stealing cars, scoring Benzedrine, and sleeping with whores in Tijuana. A Minnesota family travels south for a winter vacation but, caught up in the ordinary tyrannies of family life, remains oblivious to the beauty of the Yucatán Peninsula. A solitary horse rancher muses on Sitting Bull and Beckett amid the jumble of stuff in his big country kitchen—from rusted spurs and Lakota dream-catchers to yellowing pictures of hawks and galloping horses to “snapshots of different sons in different shirts doing different things like fishing, riding mules and tractors; leaning up against their different mothers at radical angles.” Made up of short narratives, lyrics, and dialogues, Day out of Days sets conversation against tale, song against memory, in a cubistic counterpoint that finally links each piece together. The result is a stunning work of vision and clarity imbued with the vivid reverberations of myth—Shepard at his flinty-eyed, unwavering best. From the Hardcover edition.

Following his acclaimed debut novel, The Last Cowboys of San Geronimo, the eleven stories of Ian Stansel's Glossary for the End of Days explore today's cultural and political climate with a disarming blend of speculation and realism. Whether faced with tragedy, approaching disaster, or an all-too-familiar uncertainty, Stansel's protagonists--siblings, lovers, executives, drifters--reveal complex and often startling turns of mind, surprising themselves as well as the reader. In Boulder, a man calls into a radio program with an altered tale of his brother's murder--and faces the consequences when the story goes viral. In Tampa, a woman attends a convention of people believing themselves to be targets of clandestine government agencies. In Houston, a family with many secrets attempts to escape an oncoming tropical storm. In an East Coast college town, a professor has a charged run-in with a young woman from the radical right. And in Iowa, a cult suicide spurs the lone survivor to create a "glossary" in an effort to come to terms with his experience. ​ Simultaneously gritty and lyrical, grounded and visionary, Glossary for the End of Days gives us characters grappling with how to push on through dark days and dark times. This arresting, relevant collection tunes into and seeks to illuminate shared anxieties about the present--and future--of our world.

On the eve of her sixtieth birthday, Nina Shengold embarks on a challenge: to walk the path surrounding the Catskills’ glorious Ashokan Reservoir every day for a year, at all times of day and in all kinds of weather, trying to find something new every time. Armed with lively curiosity, infectious enthusiasm, and renewed stubbornness, she hits the path every day with all five senses wide open, searching for details that glint. As Shengold explores the secrets of this spectacular place, she rediscovers the glories of solitude and an expanded community, both human and animal. Step by step, her reservoir walks rekindle connections with family, strangers, and friends, with a landscape she grows to revere, and with a new sense of self. Like the writings of John Burroughs, Annie Dillard, and Barry Lopez, Shengold’s reflections on her personal journey will resonate with outdoor enthusiasts and armchair hikers alike. Quietly transformative, Reservoir Year encourages readers to find their own ways to unplug and slow down, reconnecting with nature, reviving old passions and sparking some new ones along the path.
