only two people

at our moon viewing party

and one at a time

—Sander Zulauf < p>

In Bashō in America, 17th century haiku master Matsuo Bashō leaves his Lake Biwa “abode of illusion” to visit an “abode of illusion” on Lake George.

“In this stunning collection Sander Zulauf makes a convincing bid to become our American Bashō. Poem after brief poem struck me right between the eyes, with shocks of recognized truth.”

—X.J. Kennedy

By Judith Somborac

In 1942, in the midst of World War II, three factions struggle for power and control over Serbia: the Royalists, the Partisans, and the Nazis. For those living there, life was put on hold indefinitely while they coped daily with the terrorization of war—an especially disheartening situation for the country’s young people.

Fifteen-year-old Miriana, an only child, lives in a small, two-bedroom house in Bela Palanka, Serbia, with her parents, who farm and run a saw and gristmill. Their tiny home now accommodates her mother’s sister and nephew, who have been forced to evacuate from German-occupied Belgrade. Miriana’s aunt is frequently called upon by the Germans to translate for them—a task made more stressful by the fact that the family is also hiding a Partisan soldier in the cellar of the house. Being caught means certain death. Meanwhile, Miriana’s best friend, Stefan, supports his widowed mother and aging grandparents on a nearby farm; he resents having to abandon his aspirations for an education and his passion for the violin to run the farm.

Their existence is fraught with the angst of evening curfews, blackout curtains at night, unforeseen air raids, and conflict with the Nazis, but family, friends, and small pleasures propel them through a war that threatens their happiness and their lives on a daily basis.

Caution, your dreams may be closer than they appear.

Maurice Summerlin is a frustrated writer who plans a short vacation in Spain to escape his routine life and ponder his stalled career. Soon after arriving, a sudden rainstorm causes a chance meeting with Claire, an aging American traveler, who convinces him to join her on a journey to a remote fishing village on Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Maurice soon discovers that the best adventures are never planned.

After Claire leads him to an enchanting inn called Asilomar, he learns he is one of many wistful travelers who are on daring pursuits to fulfill their dreams. Maurice’s unintended arrival is accompanied by fear and self-doubt, but it is not long before he transforms from observer to participant. His new friend, Claire, proves she’s not afraid of mortality but dares to race it to the finish line.

Julian, Asilomar’s host, is determined to inspire his guests to risk comfort and security in exchange for exhilaration and fulfillment. But for all of his efforts he may just make the ultimate sacrifice. Euphrates, Julian’s best friend and assistant, lives in a silent world. Yet while he quietly helps to inspire those around him he yearns for the love which has eluded him.

The Guestbook at Asilomar is the engaging tale of one man’s adventurous quest during which he, along with other guests at this unconventional Spanish retreat, discovers the power of dreams and how life may best be spent in pursuit of fulfilling them.

By Anne E. Beall, Ph.D.
It all started when a rat ran over author Dr. Anne E. Beall’s husband’s foot outside their Chicago home. The Bealls had experienced rat problems for a long time. Then, a neighbor told them about a program called Cats at Work where one could get feral cats that would take care of the rat problem.

In Community Cats, she tells how she and her husband entered the world of feral cats when they signed up for the Chicago Cats at Work program with Tree House Humane Society. Tree House practices TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), and they trapped, neutered, and relocated a feral cat colony to Beall’s home. She narrates what she learned about the unique world of feral cats and about the people who are involved with feral cats and who advocate for them.

Community Cats shares the story of what initially began as a creative solution to a rat problem and became a journey that led her to reach out to others in the feral-cat world. Beall interviewed other colony caretakers and leaders in the TNR movement and learned about how feral cats live, how they relate to one another, and how they relate to their caretakers. She also conducted survey research on American’s attitudes toward stray cats, TNR programs, and spaying/neutering.

Beall learned that feral cat programs have a huge impact on the caretakers of the colonies, on the neighbors, on the community, and on the cats themselves and details those findings in Community Cats.

By Susan Farr Gabriele, PhD

After teaching more than twenty years in Los Angeles public schools, author Dr. Susan Farr Gabriele became disheartened with the state of schools. Too many influences took her away from the actual teaching of children. Gabriele turned to graduate school to seek answers to the problems in public education.

In New Hope for Schools, she shares the results of her studies and the creation of a system that works for education. Gabriele discusses her experiences as a teacher and teacher turned detective looking for answers in her teaching experience and postcareer graduate school. She then reveals a breakthrough theory to demystify the behavior of people in schools, gleaned out of Boulding’s Typology of System Complexity. As a result, she created the RoundTable, a practice designed to be an effective new tool for schools and classrooms, as well as a seed for systemic renewal. She also provides a three-pronged solution for unshackling and revitalizing schools and workplaces.

New Hope for Schools presents new theory, new practice, and a user-friendly solution for systemic school renewal. It offers compelling new insights and solutions for all school decision makers—from educators, to parents, students, educational scholars, researchers, and policy makers.

“A powerful way to learn!...the RoundTable provides a kind of learning experience that makes a real contribution to the community as a whole...”

—SUSAN McCORMICK, Polson School District Superintendent, Polson, Montana; School Improvement Consultant, Montana Office of Public Instruction, Helena, Montana
