  • Girl Intrepid: A New York Story of Privilege and Perseverance

    by Leslie Armstrong
    An engrossing memoir about a spirited and independent-minded young woman growing up on the pre-Sixties East Coast. The book is, in part, about how the particular time and place -- and family -- you are born into shapes you, whether you embrace those factors or rebel against them. Like her mother, who was a lawyer, she ultimately powered her way into a profession dominated by men and became a successful architect. As Gail Godwin notes, this is "a masterful work of anthropology, a compelling tale ... more
  • Sauce on Sunday: An Ancestral Journey to Find my Sicilian Roots

    by Janet Sierzant
    While sitting at a restaurant with two of my fellow authors, one asked me about my Sicilian background. I laughed and said, “All I know is, we always have sauce on Sunday.” My friends joined in the laughter, but I realized that I didn’t really know too much about the maternal part of my heritage. Something awoke inside of me and I had the desire to find out exactly from where I came. I began the quest for my roots by taking an ancestry DNA test. Within a few months, I had the surprise of my life... more

    by Mirinda Kossoff
    At the heart of this book is the mystery of Mirinda’s father, Hugo Kossoff, a New York Jew from an intellectual, cultured family who, after his service in WWII, settled in Danville VA, a town that proudly billed itself the “Last Capital of the Confederacy” and was a place as anti-Semitic as it was racist, though not overtly violent towards Jews. Hugo changed his name to Hugh, renounced his Judaism for Baptist fundamentalism, got a nose job and took on the trappings of a “good ol' boy,” affecting... more
