34 Summer 2019 | Wake Forest 27587 Magazine Said one reviewer : "Elizabeth's book reminds us that happiness IS a choice! We all have the inner power to choose the very words and stories that we tell ourselves and how we respond to anything in our lives. We can choose to love or choose to fear at any moment, and what we choose affects what we experience!" Many Fields By John Choquette (North Raleigh) Pumpernickel Art, 2016 330 pages I n this third installment of The Burlwood Forest Trilogy, it's been two years since Michael Pumpernickel was taken from prison, and he has been suffering every day since. Locked in his room by his overbearing parents, he has been cut off from the world he tried so desperately to save. Now 13 years old and separated from loved ones, Michael is confronted with the fact that the world might be better off without him. But Michael knows something big is coming. With the help of an old friend, he reunites with the Nervous Sleeve and uncovers a sinister plot to destroy Some Town forever. To defeat evil once and for all, Michael must return to where it all began and confront his most formidable foe yet — forgiveness. Can't he just worry about growing up? Memories from the Meadowbrook By Philip M. Read (Wake Forest) Fonthill, 2014 96 pages I t became a home- away-from-home for America's "greatest generation." "Coming to you live from Frank Dailey's Meadowbrook, Route 23, the Newark- Pompton Turnpike in Cedar Grove, New Jersey," said an announcer in those all-so-familiar radio broadcasts beamed at home and abroad. This is where Frank Sinatra sang with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in the age of swing and the big bands. Glenn Miller. Harry James. Chapel Hill's own Kay Kyser. All played here, and more. Its time came and — oh, so quickly — went. In the 1960s, it made history again as a premiere HMRRIVXLIEXIVERH½REPP] it became a rock 'n' roll venue, until one late evening its last DJ spun Glenn Miller's "In the Mood," not knowing it marked an eerie farewell to arguably America's greatest music venue of its time. Said one reviewer : "For people who have memories of the Meadowbrook, this is a great little book. Since I had been to almost every '80's show pictured, this book has a special place for me. Amazing to see Billy Idol at a local club before he became famous in the states." Howie Snuffelbean and The Fire Hydrant By Edward Scott Anthony (Wake Forest) West Bow Press, 2014 116 pages I n this children's book, the author — who has been working with young people for nearly a generation as a coach and mentor — encourages young people to be the best they can be by understanding their God-given talents and then using them to better serve others. Working with young people has always been his passion, something he attributes to the structure and nurturing he received as a child. His Dad was a WXVSRKMR¾YIRGISR what it meant to work hard and his mother taught him how to bring the best out of people by encouraging them. Mud and Dreams By Sean Doyle (Raleigh) Rainstick Press, 2018 187 pages T hrough essays and stories on the poetry and science of living, "Mud and Dreams" is an argument for the goodness of people, the beauty all around us, and our reasons for hope. It calls us to embrace all the noise and confusion of SYVPMZIWERHXS½RHXLI meaning, gratefulness, and cause for celebration. Intimate and sublime, "Mud and Dreams" is about falling more deeply in love with life. A work of "literary self-help" or "motivational poetics," "Mud and Dreams" is informed by the science of positive psychology but suckled on poetry. It is an invitation to embrace. "In his writing, and through his work," writes a reviewer, "John Sean Doyle is undoing the Enlightenment's overemphasis on reason and returning us to the truths of the heart." Everything Will be Alright: An Alzheimer's Memoir By Glory Read (Durham) iUniverse, 2007 108 pages T his is a sentimental journey through a marriage that began on the campus of Duke University and moves through the suburbs in New Jersey and the communications center in Manhattan. "We all know someone dealing with the heartbreak of a life-threatening disease," writes one reviewer. "Glory Read's story of her rich life with her true love and soulmate, Bill, his descent into Alzheimer's, the toll it takes on their lives, and her resiliency, touches us as we rapidly turn the pages of her memoir." The Magic of Menopause By Lorraine Miano (Wake Forest) Promoting Natural Health LLC, 2016 160 pages U pon discovering she was about to be a grandmother, just as menopause and a hysterectomy were at her doorstep, Lorraine Miano decided to turn her healthy lifestyle habits up a notch.
