By Harry Lee

As a young man, author Harry Lee was idealistic; he felt he wanted to impact the lives of children by becoming a teacher. In Going thru Life with a “Kick Me” Sign, he shares the realities of his career as an urban educator.

In this memoir, he narrates his story from the beginning of his life, details of his youth, adult life, and his career from beginning to retirement. Offering a surprising roller coaster ride of humor, violence, advice, faith, corruption, and life-changing events, Lee shares a shocking view of urban education along with a host of his challenging life experiences.

Praise for Going thru Life with a “Kick Me” Sign

“Gripping … An eye-opening look behind the walls of urban education. A true story of a broken system and the desolation that lies in its wake … challenges, triumphs, heartaches, politics, betrayal, and a lost generation of urban children.”

Michael Williams, Bachelor of Arts, Masters of Education, Former Public School Superintendent

“This book provides an honest and open look at the world of education in urban America today revealing the rewards, challenges, and struggles from the classroom to the principal’s office. Within its pages, author Harry Lee creatively shares his experience as a teacher in an urban setting by weaving humorous and heartwarming chalkboard stories of the life of a teacher, student life, poverty, security in the classroom, as well as exposing the shifting values and politics in education …”

Rev. Dr. Gene Burgess, Bachelor of Science, Masters of Professional Studies, Doctor of Divinity

By Ambrose Okosun

While author Ambrose Okosun was just beginning his life in March of 1973 in Lekki, Nigeria, his parents’ marriage was ending. Left with his grandparents to eke out a living in a small village, Okosun was separated from his mother and was not allowed to see his birth father. From a young age, he was dealt a hard life.

In A Boy and His Dream, Okosun shares the struggles he endured and how he strived to overcome those early challenges. From hunger to being ostracized by a polygamist family, he experienced severe poverty while growing up. At the same time, his elders imparted important lessons that Okosun took to heart, including the message that he was in charge of his own destiny.

Learning by trial and error and with guidance from God, Okosun tells how he became educated, earned several degrees, and immigrated to the United States. A Boy and His Dream narrates the story of a man who has come a long way from being an abused little boy in Nigeria.

By Janice Mock

Thousands of people have cancer. Thousands of people are fighting it. Thousands more are living with it. Author Janice Mock is just one of those thousands. But in Not All Bad Comes to Harm You, Mock shares her story to help others find new insight, strength, inspiration, and self-awareness.

It all started in February 2011 when fifty-one-year-old Mock discovered a small lump in her neck. She was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer, and treatment began. In this memoir, Mock narrates her journey, experiences, and thoughts beginning with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis to recovery and beyond. She discusses details of how she changed her focus from victim to survivor, to pursuing life rather than succumbing to death, and why she thought it was a good idea to freeze her head to forty degrees below zero.

Grown from the tiny beginnings of a blog intended to communicate medical updates with family and friends, Not All Bad Comes to Harm You tells Mock’s story—from the joys and travails of the bumpy cancer road to evolving thoughts about living beyond her illness.

By Marion Schuler

Imagine growing up in a country where one in every four girls will be raped before they turn eighteen.

Now realize that you already live there.

For one family, that statistic became an impossible reality when their teenage daughter was assaulted by A friend when she was just fifteen. The rape of teenage girls by boys they know, and often trust, is a silent epidemic in North America. Bravely, Athena stepped up to become one of only an estimated 1 to 2 percent of acquaintance-rape victims who report the crime to police. What could keep a rape victim from coming forward to demand justice?

It was a question that haunted the family—and one that inspired Athena’s mother, Marion Schuler, to action.

Written from a mother’s point of view, Persecuting Athena tells the heartbreaking story of one teen survivor’s fight for justice in Canada’s legal system only to be treated as a criminal herself.

Marion believed that her daughter’s rape was the worst thing that could have happened to her—but she could not have been more wrong. At times, the family feared for Athena’s survival. The young woman endured victim blaming by all levels of the legal system, and the experience almost destroyed what had been a stellar young woman.

The events in Persecuting Athena are shocking but painfully true. It is past the time when concerned citizens must demand the social changes needed to save our daughters.

By Duane Acker

A former university president tells about his later encounters in the federal bureaucracy, including an agency with more people than work to be done and how “special projects” get included in appropriation bills.

He also relates global encounters, including a four-acre Philippine farm that financed two children through college, Guatemalans being paid with food aid for digging the trenches for their sewer system, a Bolivian farmer proudly showing his harvest of drying coca leaves, and Eastern Europeans’ difficult transition to free enterprise.

Back in Washington, he describes political pressure to finance a cigarette manufacturing line in Turkey and a pork research center in his home state, and how membership in his home town country club risked his nomination to be assistant secretary of agriculture.

Returning to operate his home farm yielded more anecdotes, including a near collision in the cornfield with a somersaulting Plymouth, potential embarrassment of dragging an implement’s tongue mid-field, and the obstacles in building an egg layer facility that now employs twenty eight local people.

By Hermann Strasser

Hermann Strasser—born in Germany in 1919—was determined to live from the start, bearing a stubborn streak that would serve him well his entire life. He survived the attempt of his mother to abort him and then moved from foster home to foster home until he was four, when he found the family who would raise him to adulthood.

In this memoir, divided into three sections, Strasser recalls the story of his life, beginning with his birth, childhood, and youth in the period between the two wars. He then narrates his experiences in the military during World War II, serving in the German army, including tales from the frontlines and of being badly wounded. Finally, he shares tales of his postwar life, starting from nothing, working hard to build a career in the textile industry, and eventually purchasing and establishing his own knitted goods factory. He built his business for several decades—only to see it fall about in the hands of his son. Even so, his stubborn nature supported him, and he and his wife established a new life together.

One Man’s Time shares the life story and personal experiences of a man who faced many trials and came out the stronger for these difficulties.
