The Kinfolk Table from the Author: Nathan Williams. Kinfolk magazine—launched to great acclaim and instant buzz in 2011—is a quarterly journal about understated, unfussy entertaining. The journal has captured the imagination of readers nationwide, with content and an aesthetic that reflect a desire to go back to simpler times; to take a break from our busy lives; to build a community around a shared sensibility; and to foster the endless and energizing magic that results from sharing a meal with good friends. Now there’s The Kinfolk Table, a cookbook from the creators of the magazine, with profiles of 45 tastemakers who are cooking and entertaining in a way that is beautiful, uncomplicated, and inexpensive. Each of these home cooks—artisans, bloggers, chefs, writers, bakers, crafters—has provided one to three of the recipes they most love to share with others, whether they be simple breakfasts for two, one-pot dinners for six, or a perfectly composed sandwich for a solo picnic.

from the Author: Ювал Ной Харарі. Дослідження, що стало світовим бестселером № 1 за версією The New York Times та лідером продажів на Amazon.com, ламає усталені уявлення про земну історію від появи людини й народження мови до сьогодення і примушує задуматися: шлях розвитку наших предків міг бути зовсім іншим. Долучіться до історичної розвідки, і вас приголомшать неочікувані й сміливі припущення. У книжці ви не знайдете нудної хронології та сухих дат, але разом з автором розмірковуватимете про численні «чому?». ▶ Чому Людина Розумна отримала шанс на майбутнє та що винищило її найближчих древніх родичів? ▶ Чому перехід від збиральництва до сільського господарства став пасткою для людини й погіршив її життя? ▶ Чому могутні імперії інків та монголів зазнали краху та були переможені нечисленними групами європейців? ▶ Що таке «теорія пліток» і як розмови про те, чого насправді не існує, підняли людину на вищий щабель цивілізації? ▶ Що спільного між релігією та ідеологією? Чим відрізняються християнство та буддизм? ▶ Як гроші та кредити стали однією з основних рушійних сил цивілізації? ▶ Чому зруйновані імперії досі керують людством?

The Nativity Stories from the Author: B. Michael Fee. For centuries, Jewish and Christian scholars, historians, archeologists, etc., have attempted to flesh out in finer detail the recorded accounts of the four evangelists. They have been constrained by both time and the gospels themselves. We remain, to this day, as unfamiliar as we have ever been of the fuller knowledge regarding the most important figures written of in these testaments. Assuming the mantle of historical fiction writer, I hold these characters up to the light, turning them in unusual ways, catching something that may or may not have been there but rings true to this believer’s ears. My hope is that upon reading these stories, you and yours will set your minds free to wander about in these, the most extraordinary of human times.

Litigating Across The Color Line from the Author: Melissa Milewski. In a largely previously untold story, Melissa Milewski explores how, when the financial futures of their families were on the line, black litigants throughout the South took on white southerners in civil suits. Between 1865 and 1950, in almost a thousand civil cases across eight southern states, former slaves took their former masters to court, black sharecroppers litigated against white landowners, and African Americans with little formal education brought disputes against wealthy white members of their communities. As black southerners negotiated a legal system with almost all white gatekeepers, they displayed pragmatism and a savvy understanding of how to get whites on their side. They found that certain kinds of cases were much easier to gain whites' support for than others. But they also found that, in the kinds of civil cases that they could litigate in the highest courts of eight states, they were surprisingly successful. In a tremendously restricted environment in which they were often shut out of other government institutions, seen as racially inferior, and segregated, African Americans found a way to fight for their rights in one of the only ways they could. This book examines how African Americans adapted and at times made a biased system work for them under enormous constraints. At the same time, it considers the limitations of working within a white-dominated system at a time of great racial discrimination, and the choices black litigants had to make to have their cases heard.
