"WRITERS WRITE" Ivan Clayton Goff 1979

Palomino Blackwing Pencils

 

In the recent years, coffee shops have become much more than grab-and-go latte stops. They have transformed to mobile offices, record labels, meeting centers and design studios.

For those reasons, Blackwing pencils are popping up in coffee shops across the country.  Used by some of the most brilliant and successful minds of our time, such as John Steinbeck, Truman Capote and Stephen Sondheim, a new generation of creatives kicking of their careers in coffee shops are clamoring for them. They come in a beautiful box of 3 with a smart sharpener!

BOOKBITES November 2014

Featuring family-friendly recipes and stunning photography, an all-new cookbook from New York Times bestselling author, beloved actor, and respected foodie Stanley Tucci.

Stanley Tucci’s association with wonderful foods began for fans with the movie Big Night and resonated in his role as Julia Child’s husband in Julie & Julia. But well before these films, he was enjoying innovative homemade Italian meals throughout his childhood, when family and food were nearly inseparable and cooking was always a familial venture.

Now, in a completely new, family-focused cookbook, Tucci captivates food lovers’ imaginations with recipes from his traditional Italian roots as well as those of his British wife, Felicity Blunt, tied together with a modern American ribbon. The time-tested recipes include pasta alla bottarga, mushroom-stuffed trout, pork chops with onions and mustard sauce, barbeque chicken wings, and much, much more! Nothing will make you happier to spend time with family than the aroma of a hearty Italian dish sizzling on the stovetop.

Featuring 100 luscious new full-color photographs, The Tucci Table captures the true joys of family cooking. Buon apetito! - See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/The-Tucci-Table/Stanley-Tucci/9781476738567#sthash.fvT2GHuj.dpuf

HITLER, JESUS AND OUR COMMON HUMMANITY

By Bruce W. Longenecker

This book follows the journey of a Jew who fled Nazi Germany but could not exorcise its evils from his theological and literary imagination. Having spent his early years trying to escape from his encounters with Nazism, Rolf Gompertz spent his later years trying to interpret the contours of evil that he had experienced in Hitler's Germany. The spiritual journey of Rolf Gompertz offers intrigue, instruction, and challenge. It is the story of how a small Jewish boy, cowering under the talons of prejudice and protected only by the love of his parents, emerged to craft a life that directly refuted the ideology that propped up the power structures of Nazi Germany. Along the way, Gompertz came to recognize in the folds of the Christian Gospels the story of another Jew who had stood in opposition to a similar configuration of ideology and power. In retelling that story as a committed Jew, Gompertz offered a robust "response to Hitler"--a refutation of the malevolent forces that seek to dismantle "our common humanity"

Amazon Books $20.70

LBN Publisher Note: Rolf Gompertz was my publicity writing Professor at UCLA, a mentor and great friend for many years. He has published five wonderful books that inspire and make people think, as well as many helpful books on publicity and writing. I hope you will take the time to read this story of an amazing American who escaped the Nazi's to become a stellar American.        BC
