Title:  The History of Bagels in America

Author:    Marc Fintz

Genre: NonFiction/ History

Format: Paperback

Pages:   40 pages

Publication Date: December 1, 2019

Synopsis:

The Artisan Bagel is the most iconic food ever made in the City of New York. It has become identified and synonomous with NYC itself. While people love them, most know little about their origins, the features that make them distinct from other bread, and their ties to the history of the Jewish people. Marc Fintz sheds a light on those issues and on the movement to make the Bagel a distinctly American food, rather than a Jewish, or NYC Food. This work is transcribed from a lecture series on the history of Jewish Foods, hosted by the Davidovich Bakery, on the Lower East Side of New York City in the Summer of 2019. The work is a transcription of the July 2019 lecture on the “The History of Bagels in America” by Marc Fintz, which took place at the historic Blue Moon Hotel before a sold out crowd.

Audio Release-Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly

41BTr1C-KdL._SX342_

 

Title:  Lovely Little Things

Author:    Maureen Joyce Connolly

Narrated:           Elisabeth Rodgers

Genre: Fiction/ LGBT Fiction/Humorous Fiction

Format: Audio Plus kindle/paperback/

Publisher: Recorded Books

Time:   10 hours 14 minutes

Publication Date: April 2, 2019

Synopsis:

“A shattering adventure.” ― Jacquelyn Mitchard, bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean

Prepare to be riveted.
It’s 1993, the first Saturday in September—impossibly hot—and Claire Rawlings is driving her two girls to the daycare at the University of Chicago Hospital where, as a resident, she is scheduled for rounds. Ignoring the troublesome signs of a sudden allergic reaction, Claire exits off the freeway to safety, only to pass out cold. When she wakes up, her daughters are gone.

Vanished.

Called a “A Shattering Adventure” by best-selling author, Jaquelyn Mitchard,
LITTLE LOVELY THINGS is a haunting exploration of how tragedy transforms lives. With page-turning momentum, Connolly ties together the threads of lives shattered, hope lost, and—finally—joy restored.

Perfect for readers of Watch Me Disappear and After Anna!

Additional Praise for Little Lovely Things:
“Little Lovely Things is an insightful and moving read that is well worth the journey.” ― Vivian Schilling, bestselling author of Quietus

“Combining the suspense and razor-sharp outlook of a Gillian Flynn novel, Maureen Connolly’s debut sizzles. I finished Little Lovely Things in one heartbreaking, tear-batting gulp. Connolly takes risks that make the reader’s heart start anew. Finding shards of hope amidst the chaos of tragedy is a testament to both the writer, and the characters she creates.” ― Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of Wicked River
