The Memory Illusion
The Memory Illusion By Julia Shaw

An exploration of the fallibility of memory and how easily our brains can be misled. Memories make us who we are—yet the truth is they are far from being the accurate record we like to think they are. We can all admit to occasional memory lapses, but what if we have the potential for more profound errors of memory, even verging on outright fabrication and self-deception? Forensic psychologist and memory expert Dr. Julia Shaw uses the latest research to show the astonishing variety of ways in which our brains can be led astray. She shows why we can misappropriate other people's memories, believing them to be our own. She explains how police officers can imprison an innocent man for life on the basis of 300 denials and just one confession. She demonstrates the way radically false memories can be deliberately implanted, leading people to believe that they brutally murdered a loved one, or were abducted by aliens. And she reveals how, in spite of all this, we can improve our memory through awareness of its fallibility.
Eating Eternity
Eating Eternity By John Baxter

"Show me another pleasure like dinner which comes every day and lasts an hour," wrote Talleyrand. That Napoleon's most gifted advisor should speak so highly of eating says much about the importance of food in French culture. From the crumbs of a madeleine dipped in tisane that inspired Marcel Proust to the vast produce market where Emile Zola set one of his finest novels, the French have celebrated the relationship between art and food. Eating Eternity offers a seductive menu of those places in the French capital where art and food have intersected. Appendices guide you to the restaurant where Napoleon proposed to Josephine, the cafés patronized by Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Isadora Duncan and Man Ray, as well as those out-of-the-way sites that bring to life the culinary experience of Paris. Eating Eternity is an invaluable and unique guide to the art and food of Paris. Bon appetit! 
The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook
The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook Edited by Aaron Foley

Detroiters need to get to know their neighbors better. Wait — maybe that should be, Detroiters should get to know their neighborhoods better. It seems like everybody thinks they know the neighborhoods here, but because there are so many, the definitions become too broad, the characteristics become muddled, the stories become lost. Edited by Aaron Foley, The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook contains essays by Zoe Villegas, Drew Philip, Hakeem Weatherspoon, Marsha Music, Ian Thibodeau, and dozens of others.
The Bermuda Privateer
The Bermuda Privateer By William Westbrook

Hailed as groundbreaking by David Donachie, author of the John Pearce Naval Series and the Privateersman Mysteries— "All sea stories should tell you something new, and The Bermuda Privateer meets that criterion in spades. Fast paced and covering an area new to me; I was enthralled by the author's encyclopedic knowledge of the Caribbean. There are battles and conspiracies galore, with engaging characters and thrilling actions." Nicholas Fallon is captain of the schooner Sea Dog, a privateer that is fast, beautiful and deadly. Unbound by Royal Navy tradition, Fallon enjoys total independence in where he goes, how he fights, and whom he takes as crew. A woman—Beauty McFarland—is his first lieutenant. It's 1796, and Sea Dog's owner, Ezra Somers, employs Fallon to protect his Caribbean salt trade from French privateers and pirates. Wicked Jak Clayton is especially ruthless. When the two meet just off the Bahamas, even Fallon's cunning can't overcome their mismatch in firepower and desertion by a cowardly ally. Later, in Bermuda, Fallon is enlisted by the Royal Navy to intercept a Spanish flotilla carrying gold and silver to France. But a massive hurricane halts the British attack on the Spanish transports, driving several ships, including Fallon's, onto the Florida shore. Held by Spanish soldiers, Fallon and the surviving crew escape by turning enemies into friends. Once free, only one mission remains. Wicked Jak Clayton must die! The Bermuda Privateer is an action-filled sea story with layered storylines and a modern storyteller's voice.

Let Them Thrive
Let Them Thrive By Katie Novak

Let Them Thrive provides parents with a practical understanding of how education works--and how it can work better--for their children. Every learner is as unique as his or her fingerprints. But one-size-fits-all schooling doesn't account for those variations. In this highly readable book (with unique cartoon illustrations), bestselling author, educator, and parent Katie Novak introduced the research-based framework Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Parents learn the origins of UDL in the learning sciences and in practice. (UDL is prominent in the federal Every Student Succeed Act). They also learn strategies, tips, and tools to support their children's learning in school and in life. Let Them Thrive is an important new contribution to the growing literature on UDL, the first such book directly aimed at parents.

The Solitary Spy
The Solitary Spy By Douglas Boyd

Author and historian Douglas Boyd reveals his shocking account of life as a Cold War prisoner in 1950s Berlin. Of the 2.3 million National Servicemen conscripted during the Cold War, 5,000 attended the secret Joint Services School for Linguists, tasked with supplying much-needed Russian speakers to the three services. The majority were in RAF uniform, as the Warsaw Pact saw air forces become the greatest danger to the West. After training, they were sent to the front lines in Germany and elsewhere to snoop on Russian aircraft in real time. Posted to RAF Gatow in Berlin, ideally placed for signals interception, Douglas Boyd came to know Hitler's devastated former capital, divided as it was into Soviet, French, US and British sectors. Pulling no punches, he describes the SIGINT work, his subsequent arrest by armed Stasi soldiers one night on the border, and how he became one of the most important political prisoners in Cold War Berlin. The Solitary Spy is a unique account of the terrifying experience of incarceration and interrogation in an East German political prison, from which Boyd eventually escaped one step ahead of the KGB.
The Marvellous Equations of the Dread
The Marvellous Equations of the Dread By Marcia Douglas

Bob Marley is dead. The Emperor Haile Selassie has been brutally murdered. The armed gangs of Kingston are at war and the murder rate soars. The people have lost all trust in self-serving politicians. It is hard to imagine worse times. The Marvellous Equations of the Dread tells the twin stories of Jamaica's nihilistic violence and its wondrously creative humanity and does truthful justice to both. It takes place in the worlds of the living and in the vivid afterlife of the dead, spanning the Kingston ghettoes, the Emperor's palace in Addis Ababa and Zion. There is even a fallen angel. At its heart are the human stories of the deaf Leenah who with her mother and daughter writes a powerful woman version of events; the relationship between Fall-down (the street madman and fallen angel) and Delroy the orphaned street-boy, and the meetings in the clock tower at Half Way Tree between Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey and the island's dead. There is also the enslaved boy who was hung from the silk cotton tree in 1766. The novel sets out to retrieve the word at the tip of his tongue. Not least of the novel's marvellous equations are the dread revenants who encourage the living to take responsibility for the future of the nation.
Seasons in an Unknown Key
Seasons in an Unknown Key By Karen Mulhallen

In her latest collection of poems, Karen Mulhallen takes us on a physical journey through the course of a year and on a spiritual journey through many lives. The beauty of birds, the amour fou of the inconstant lover, the rapture of the past in the history of Toronto Islands and of the city of Pompeii. This is a poet at the height of her art, crafting language and rhythm, to mirror the ebb and flow of the scene. A compelling and devastating group of poems.
