Lauren Melink - IT'LL BE FINE. RIGHT? Everyday stories from an elderly millennial
We live in a world with a continuously decreasing attention span and this book caters to that somewhat embarrassing personality trait of society. This book is a collection of blog posts written over the course of a year by author Lauren Melink. The stories are varied and don't flow together at all, but they're real. They are raw moments plucked from her personal experiences that usually have a moral to them. (Usually). A voice that defines a generation in a silly, laugh out loud kind of way.
Robert Vancil - APRIL AND MY CLASSMATES: Growing up in Small Towns of Northeast Oregon
“April and My Classmates” is a collection of stories, events and happenings that were part of my experiences growing up in the 1940’s and 50’s living in small towns in northeast Oregon. Forty personal stories tell of my family life in the communities in which we lived. There are stories of youthful adventure, family love and loss, friendship, the beauty of nature and the thrill of young romance. They resonate in the life of the reader.
Cheryl Krkoc - LOVE POEMS AND OBSESSION
Shortly after the death of her parents, Cheryl discovered what she though was one of the many photo albums in her brother's safekeeping. She was looking for photos for her memoir, Sentiment. To her delight and surprise, among these photo albums, was one which contained fifty years worth of poems her dad had written to her mother.
