"The Boogie Trapp" - A Novel By Kerry Copeland Smith

Description: The Boogie Trapp is the story of two young boys—Charles Edward “Trapper” Trapp and the aptly-nicknamed, born-under-a-bad-sign Boogie Smith, the novel’s narrator—and that day, decades ago, when time almost stopped for the boys. When the novel opens, it’s over a half century later and time finally has stopped—at least for one. Protagonist and narrator Smith, now 72, recounts the day he receives word that his old friend Trapper has passed away. But there is more—far more—than simply grieving the loss of his friend. Weeks later, just as he knew he would, Smith receives a letter from Trapper reminding him to complete what Trapper calls “the last and most important mission” of his life. Completing that mission means rewinding to April 1949 in Black Creek, Alabama, a small coal mining town just north of Birmingham. Like most of the mining towns of its day, Black Creek has long since vanished, but a dark memory remains. And what follows is the story of that day, April 9, 1949. The day when everything changed. A mesmerizing and chilling debut, The Boogie Trapp will grab readers on the first page and not let go.

GRITTY MEMOIR BURSTS THE GLAMORIZED BUBBLE OF HOLLYWOOD’S “WISEGUYS”

Rumble in Brooklyn is one of those all-too-rare books that combine history and art with intelligence, heart, and wit. If you want to know the way it really was, “Rumble” will show you. Outstanding. — Warren Murphy, screenwriter, The Eiger Sanction,

Description: A fat, four-eyed kid somehow finds himself growing up in the toughest and most Mafia-filled slum in the country. From surviving protection rackets at the age of five, violent anti-Semitism, and brutal gang wars, Rumble in Brooklyn goes straight into East New York to depict the street-fighting childhood of New York Times acclaimed crime writer Joseph Trigoboff. During the 1950’s and 60’s, he not only knew, but exchanged blows with members of street gangs that were headed by future “Goodfellas.” Rumble in Brooklyn tells the story of Trigoboff’s poignant, violent coming of age amidst the brutal bigotry of East New York – the most violent neighborhood in the toughest town in America – and the favorite dumping ground for any self-respecting Mafioso. Challenged daily to fights with bigger and stronger opponents in an environment that was always threatening and always changing, Rumble describes the enduring power of friendship as Jewish street kids fought together against anti-Semitic neighborhood gangs such as the New Lots Boys, Fountain & Pitkin the El Tones and the Roman Lords. But Rumble is also a tale about a father-son relationship that was not based on a love of sports, but his father’s love of literature. Lee Trigoboff, nicknamed Samson and Popeye for his immense strength, not only taught young Joe how to fight and survive on the streets, but also encouraged his son’s love of reading and writing.

Lori Duron's Poignant, Heartbreaking, And Laugh-out-loud Funny Memoir Raising My Rainbow

Raising My Rainbow chronicles the daily joys, struggles, and sometimes embarrassments of raising a gender-creative child.

Description: Lori Duron’s Raising My Rainbow: Adventures in Raising a Fabulous, Gender Creative Son (Broadway Books; September 3, 2013), based on her incredibly popular blog of the same name and featuring a foreword by Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, is the first memoir written by a mother that chronicles the daily joys, struggles, and sometimes embarrassments of raising a gender-creative child. Once it became clear that her little boy was happier shopping in the pink aisles of the toy store and preferred Snow White to Superman for his Halloween costume, Lori decided she and her husband needed to shift their parenting perspective—and also needed help figuring out how to encourage their little boy who liked girl things to stay true to himself, all while protecting him from a world that isn’t comfortable challenging gender norms. In Raising My Rainbow, Lori offers a heartfelt and beautifully rendered memoir as well as an important look into the more serious issues that come with parenting a gender-creative child, including understanding the differences between sex, gender, and sexuality, and how society’s interpretation of gender norms (from the toys we give our children to the colors we think they should be attracted to) affected her and her husband’s parenting decisions.

An interesting note - Castro has chosen to add the credits as Audio Files, the first to do such a thing. The listener can get the scoop on each song as well as who is on the cut. It is also noted he plays many of the instruments on the CD himself. From the upbeat melody of 'Willie Blue’, written for his late wife-to the infectious hook of the title cut 'Just Beginning' (prompted by a conversation with his friend, and music legend Richie Havens,) every song offers a unique sound for the listener. Castro says "music is a gift that has never let him down and has the power to call upon every human emotion" - this solo album is a perfect example of that. A founding member of legendary rock group," The Blues Magoos,” Castro went on to form rock band Balance, star in HAIR on Broadway, currently plays with Long Island Hall of Famers - Barnaby Bye and serves as associate producer for new off Broadway show "The Gong Show Live.” His songs have been recorded by the likes of Kiss, Cher, Diana Ross and others.

Is it Possible to Find Humanity in One’s Enemy?

Description: No one thought that the Second Street boarding house would be destroyed by arsonists. No one wanted to believe that Nate Johnson would be beaten simply because of his race. But things have gotten ugly in Blaineton, New Jersey. It is in the middle of the Civil War and the abolitionist sympathies of the people in Maggie Blaine Smith’s boarding house have made them a target for racist and Copperhead forces. When the violence threatens to get worse, the sheriff suggests that they move until things calm down. Maggie’s husband Eli has a proposal for them: his two sisters need help aiding fugitive slaves evading the Confederate Army and find freedom in the north. However, first they must relocate to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Maggie and her family risk the move, hoping that they will find some badly-needed peace there. But can that happen when newspaperman Eli and reporter/photographer Chester Carson are off covering the war? How can Maggie and the remaining members of her family start anew in a strange place? And how will all of them hold on to their courage, strength, and faith as the war rages and Confederate and Union forces march into Pennsylvania?

The God Within

New Book

Description: Luke 17:21, “The Kingdom of God is within you.” Martine Racine, a Jungian psychoanalyst, takes this passage literally and explores it in her new book, “The God Within.” “God is not some external force, rather he is a part of all of us,” Racine said. In the book, Racine stresses that morality and creativity do not come from extrinsic sources, but rather, they reside within us. Each chapter describes a different lens from which god within can be viewed. For example, she discusses nature, children, and love as different ways that our inner divinity can be expressed and seen. “Our inner God is intertwined with all of our experiences as well as the collective consciences of the world,” Racine said. “It’s important to embrace our divine nature and make sense of our multidimensional reality in an intuitive way.”
