Oprah's Book Club Selection - The Water Dancer



The Water Dancer 

(Oprah's Book Club): A Novel


OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • From the National Book Award–winning author of Between the World and Me, a boldly conjured debut novel about a magical gift, a devastating loss, and an underground war for freedom.


“This potent book about America’s most disgraceful sin establishes [Ta-Nehisi Coates] as a first-rate novelist.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Nearly every paragraph is laced through with dense, gorgeously evocative descriptions of a vanished world and steeped in its own vivid vocabulary.”—Entertainment Weekly



Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her—but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he’s ever known.


So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia’s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the Deep South to dangerously idealistic movements in the North. Even as he’s enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram’s resolve to rescue the family he left behind endures.


This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children—the violent and capricious separation of families—and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved. Written by one of today’s most exciting thinkers and writers, The Water Dancer is a propulsive, transcendent work that restores the humanity of those from whom everything was stolen.

Courtesy of Estelle’s pledge to save herself for marriage, her life is an endless loop of working, cooking for one, and sleeping alone. That’s it.

Undercover Bag Lady



Undercover Bag Lady: 

An Exposé of Christian Attitudes Toward the Homeless 


Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me.



After leading a small nondenominational church and helping to serve the homeless community for 30 years, former pastor Kimberly Bowman set out on a social experiment that was decades in the making. A lifelong curiosity in human interaction and a passion to enact social change distilled themselves in the Undercover Bag Lady project.

Carefully disguised in tattered layers of dirty rags, Kimberly Bowman assumed the life of Jean, the homeless bag lady, and approached 10 different churches from the heart of the Bible Belt. Over the course of eight weeks, Jean attended Sunday morning services and took note of the reception her indigent character received.

From outright hostility to overwhelming generosity, the undercover bag lady encountered the full spectrum of humanity’s potential for acceptance. “Undercover Bag Lady: An Exposé of Christian Attitudes Toward the Homeless” examines the silent hypocrisy and the humbling benevolence that exist beyond the closed doors of the Christian church. In beautifully poignant prose, this unyielding exposé of a silent, fringe community’s experiences turns the mirror on the Christian Church and compels it to examine if it is truly following Christ’s message of unconditional love.

Words of Wisdom: Nursing



The field of nursing has been built and shaped by outstanding and innovative nurses like those who share their words of nursing wisdom here. Many of these participating nurses devote their time and talents to research, many have written journal articles and textbooks that are used on a daily basis, many train other nurses, and each and every one of them have devoted themselves to caring for patients and have helped evolve the medical specialty of nursing into the vibrant, diverse, and challenging field that it is today. It would be amazing to have the opportunity to sit down with each of these nurses in person and absorb as much of their knowledge as possible, to hear their stories and their words of wisdom. But we all know that this is impossible because we are all in different locations around the country. Let this book be a way for you to have a brief meeting with these amazing nurses. I think you will find, as I have in my own medical education and practice, and in compiling this book, that they have much wisdom to share.

Magic Lessons


Celebratory and Cautionary Tales about Life as a

(Single, Gay, Transracially Adoptive) Dad 


Every family has a story--but very few have a story like Joseph Sadusky and his sons, Daveon and Mark. 

In Magic Lessons, Joe shares a look back as he, a single gay man, decided to build his family through transracial adoption. In a lighthearted collection of stories and lessons learned, Joe humorously but honestly describes the process as he set out to adopt two older children, and what happened after they came together under one roof and became "us."

Along the way, Joe details how often he was, in his own words, "amazed, aggravated, mind-blown, jaw-dropped, befuddled, exasperated, and awed-both in good ways and bad, both by my kids and by the many players who have had a part in our family story overall." 

By revealing lessons learned about being "other," as well as Joe's own parenting mistakes, Magic Lessons provides a guide for anyone who is part of, or considering, an alternative family structure.

LIghtwarriors



Charlene “Charlie” MacLeod, was born with the very rare and dangerous ability to light fires by the sheer power of her will. This power makes her both an object of fear and a target for exploitation. At only six years of age Charlie returns from a day trip with her father, Jack MacLeod to find that her mother murdered by government agents bent on capturing her to exploit her powers. 
For the next two years Charlie and Jack go on the run, barely managing to stay ahead of the federal government. During this time Charlie finds herself facing a number of moral dilemmas as she is repeatedly forced to use her power to survive and protect herself and her father from capture. 
Eventually, Charlie and Jack are captured by the NSA and taken to their Fallow Point Compound in South Carolina.  Charlie is convinced to submit to experimentation on her powers by Robin Striker, an old friend of her father’s, who poses as an ally. Charlie ultimately learns that Robin is manipulating her and attempts to escape. During the course of this escape Robin fatally shoots Jack, and Charlie proceeds to incinerate him along with the entire Fallow Point compound.
Two weeks later, David and Catherine McAuliffe, a young couple gifted with similar powers to Charlie, discover Charlie in Central Park New York. David and Catherine adopt Charlie as their own daughter but quickly find themselves the target of the NSA which now seeks to kill Charlie and anyone who knows of her existence. 
Once again on the run, Charlie is attacked in the night by a government Asset and fatally poisoned. After a near death experience it becomes clear that Charlie is more than just a pyrokinetic, though neither she nor her adoptive parents yet realize her true importance.
Without any other options, David takes Catherine and Charlie to his father’s home in northern Scotland where he learns that Charlie is gifted with the power to unlock a pair of legendary weapons capable of channeling incredible power.
David’s father, James Lenox, encourages David to have Charlie unlock one of the weapons and to train her to use her power for good. Having previously rejected their powers in favor of trying to live a normal life both David and Catherine are resistant to James’ advice but in the end to encourage Charlie to unlock one of the weapons and begin her training.
Not long after Charlie begins her training, a new threat emerges in the form of the Black Empire, a malevolent nation led by men and women who have chosen to use their powers for selfish gain. Charlie, David and Catherine are taken by the Black Empire and separated. Charlie is first subjected to torment. Then she is offered both the promise of power and revenge for the deaths of her father and mother.
Since the death of her parents, Charlie has carried around a tremendous amount of anger and a powerful desire for revenge. Charlie knows that this desire is wrong and has been taught from an early age to fear her power and to believe that using her power is dangerous and wrong. Still she cannot let go of her anger and desire for her revenge and is tempted by the promise of revenge and the freedom to use her power at will.
Charlie struggles internally with her own anger and desire for revenge and nearly gives in when she is brought face to face with Robin Striker, whom she had previously believed she had killed. 
After narrowly rejecting revenge, Charlie escapes with David and Catherine only to be confronted by Robin who challenges her to face him one on one. Charlie accepts, knowing that she will easily kill him and quickly finishes Robin off with a decapitating sword stroke.
After killing Robin, Charlie along with David and Catherine are recaptured by Black Imperial troops and Charlie is forced to face her own inner darkness. With some difficulty Charlie rejects temptation and learns to control her anger and desire for revenge. Though she still hates the people she views as responsible for the deaths of her mother and father and her own suffering Charlie learns that she can control these feelings and reaffirms her desire not to misuse her power.
