When Allan Johnson asked his dying father where he wanted his ashes to be placed, his father replied—without hesitation—that it made no difference to him at all. In his poignant, powerful memoir, Not from Here, Johnson embarks on an extraordinary, 2,000-mile journey across the Upper Midwest and Northern Plains to find the place where his father’s ashes belonged. As a white man with Norwegian and English lineage, Johnson explores both America and the question of belonging to a place whose history holds the continuing legacy of the displacement, dispossession, and genocide of Native peoples. More than a personal narrative, Not from Here illuminates the national silence around unresolved questions of accountability, race, and identity politics, and the dilemma of how to take responsibility for “a past we did not create.” Johnson’s story—about the past living in the present; of redemption, fate, family, tribe, and nation; of love and grief—raises profound questions about belonging, identity, and place.

Juan, Lupe, Pablo, Sara, and their children are two families with Mexican heritage happily living as citizens in the United States of America. But in 1929, President Herbert Hoover, hoping to ease the 25 percent unemployment rate caused by the Great Depression, orders them back to Mexico-along with more than one million other Mexicans and American citizens of Mexican descent in a sweeping act known as Mexican Repatriation. Not from Here, Not from There: The Forced Migration of American Citizens vividly paints a picture of the harsh realities these families are forced to face as a result of their mandatory deportation. Suffering deplorable conditions back in Mexico that include extreme poverty and harsh discrimination, these two families endure years of unspeakable hardships in the hopes of one day returning to their real homeland- the United States of America. Author Maria Teresa H. de Holcomb presents a thought-provoking dramatic play based on actual events. Filled with pain yet infused with hope, it takes an honest and unapologetic look at this shameful period of American history.

With I'm Not from Here, popular writer Will Willimon returns to fiction with a story of spiritual discovery set in a Southern town. Will takes us on a Don Quixote-like journey during which young Felix Goforth Luckie learns a great deal about the world, about other people, and about a God who shows up in the oddest places, in the strangest times, and among the unlikeliest people. On a quest to discover himself, Felix is discovered by the grace of God. In homage to Dostoevsky, Cervantes, and the Bible, Willimon creates a world that is thoroughly believable, realistic, and ordinary, yet at the same time fantastic, strange, and funny. In Galilee, Georgia, young Felix finds that things are not as they first appear, people are wonderfully mysterious, and God is unavoidable. At times odd, frequently very funny, both satirical and poignant, I'm Not from Here is a rollicking tale, a light-hearted parable with serious intent. Willimon's first novel, Incorporation, was widely acclaimed for its satire, honesty, and theological depth. While this his second novel differs considerably, I'm Not from Here is equally surprising and entertaining, showing Willimon's gifts as a masterful storyteller. Even as the parables of Jesus reveal things to us that could not be seen except through fiction, so this novel is not only engaging but also revealing.

This is a funny, moving story about life in a small town, from the point of view of a pregnant lesbian. Louise A. Blum, author of the critically acclaimed novel Amnesty, now tells the story of her own life and her decision to be out, loud, and pregnant. Mixing humor with memorable prose, Blum recounts how a quiet, conservative town in an impoverished stretch of Appalachia reacts as she and a local woman, Connie, fall in love, move in together, and determine to live their life together openly and truthfully. The town responds in radically different ways to the couple’s presence, from prayer vigils on the village green to a feature article in the family section of the local newspaper. This is a cautionary, wise, and celebratory tale about what it’s like to be different in America—both the good and the bad. A depiction of small town life with all its comforts and its terrors, this memoir speaks to anyone who has ever felt like an outsider in America. Blum tells her story with a razor wit and deft precision, a story about two "girls with grit," and the child they decide to raise, right where they are, in small town America.

Imagine being forced to move to a new planet where YOU are the alien! From the creator of the Tapper Twins, New York Times bestselling author Geoff Rodkey delivers a topical, sci-fi middle-grade novel that proves friendship and laughter can transcend even a galaxy of differences. The first time I heard about Planet Choom, we'd been on Mars for almost a year. But life on the Mars station was grim, and since Earth was no longer an option (we may have blown it up), it was time to find a new home. That's how we ended up on Choom with the Zhuri. They're very smart. They also look like giant mosquitos. But that's not why it's so hard to live here. There's a lot that the Zhuri don't like: singing (just ask my sister, Ila), comedy (one joke got me sent to the principal's office), or any kind of emotion. The biggest problem, though? The Zhuri don't like us. And if humankind is going to survive, it's up to my family to change their minds. No pressure.

Roger Welsch did what many Americans only dream of doing. While still in his professional prime, the folklorist and humorist quit a tenured professorship and headed toward the hinterland. Resettled in the open heart of Nebraska with his wife, Welsch proceeded to learn how to live. It?s Not the End of the Earth, but You Can See It from Here is, in his own words, "a celebration" of his "rural education." ø These twenty-eight tales of the Great Plains convey in familiar Welschian style "the importance, charm, beauty, and value of the typical." They describe the wisdom that Welsch?s new-found teachers share with him. From everyday country people, he learns the fine arts of relaxing, using his noggin, trusting his instincts, and laughing a lot more, while Omaha Indian friends teach him the most profound lessons of all.

Welcome to Volume Three of "Not from Here: Selected UFO Articles" by Preston Dennett. As with the previous volumes, Dennett explores the strange and unusual aspects of the UFO phenomenon, presenting the outlying cases that defy the standard model of UFO contact. Inside this volume, you will find: - CAUGHT IN THE ACT Although abduction reports number in the thousands or more, almost nobody ever sees an abduction happen. Or do they? The answer is yes, as these cases prove. - SEE A UFO - LOSE YOUR JOB While seeing a UFO can be an exciting event, it sometimes comes with hidden dangers. Many witnesses find themselves victims of ridicule and disbelief. Sometimes, seeing a UFO can even cost a person their job. - ALIEN GIFTS In very rare cases, aliens give people gifts, actual physical proof of their encounter. It almost never happens, but when it does, the results are astounding. - TO ERR IS ALIEN With their remarkable abilities to dart around silently in the sky, and abduct people at will, the ETs are clearly more advanced than humans. But they are not perfect. Sometimes they make stupid mistakes. - CAN WE CONTACT UFOS WITH A OUIJA BOARD? While most people use a Ouija board to communicate with spirits, there are now a growing number of cases in which the board is used to contact ETs. These cases provide some startling insights into the nature of the UFO phenomenon. - UFOS OVER PRISONS UFOs are known to be attracted to highly specific areas: nuclear power plants, dams, military installations, airports, and other technological areas. What is little known is that they are also attracted to prisons. The question is, why? - IS JESUS AN ALIEN? It's a question that's been asked many times, with much speculation but little supporting evidence. The truth is, there are a number of cases from across the world in which people claim to have met Jesus aboard a UFO. - IS BIGFOOT AN ALIEN? Most UFO cases do not involve Bigfoot, and most Bigfoot cases do not involve UFOs. But in a tiny percentage of cases, these two phenomena perfectly intersect, revealing a mysterious and powerful connection that has yet to be fully explained. - THE TRUTH BEHIND ALIEN ANAL PROBES It's a subject that's received much ridicule and media attention, but little serious analysis. Are people actually being anally probed by ETs? And if so, why? What exactly are the ETs looking for? - IF YOU BUILD IT The aliens seem to be on a mission. In case after case, abductees are taken into the engine room of a UFO and told how it works. In a few of these cases the abductees have used their knowledge to actually build an engine based on what they learned from the ETs. Ten chapters, each exploring a unique area of the UFO phenomenon. Supported by cases from early history to the current day, coming from across the United States and the world, "NOT FROM HERE: VOLUME THREE" makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of these strange visitors to our planet.

A satellite lands on Earth in the USA. The US Government is convinced this strange satellite came from somewhere that is undetectable from Earth. They conclude that the only place that would fit that description is the other side of the sun. Two astronauts, Larry Bets and Lewis Pearson, are enticed to check this probability out. They find another world the same size of Earth that is inhabited by a race of Gods who have a plan for the future of Earth, with a replacement race they nurtured, and do not want to be detected at this time. The Gods sabotage their spaceship to prevent Lewis and Larry's return to Earth. There is also a person already there, of Nazi parents from 1945, that is an additional challenge of their return to Earth, because he wants to go with them. They are joined by Terri and Bobby Bauer, two astronauts from Earth, who have a life threatening problem in their trip to the planet to rescue Lewis and Larry, and then have to convince the Gods for their return to Earth.

This brand-new series by a popular screenwriter is a pitch-perfect, contemporary comedy featuring twelve-year-old fraternal twins, Claudia and Reese, who couldn't be more different...except in their determination to come out on top in a vicious prank war! But when the competition escalates into an all-out battle that's fought from the cafeteria of their New York City private school all the way to the fictional universe of an online video game, the twins have to decide if their efforts to destroy each other are worth the price. Told as a colorful "oral history" by the twins and their friends, and including photos, screenshots, chat logs, online gaming digital art, and text messages between their clueless parents, The Tapper Twins is a hilariously authentic showcase of what it's like to be in middle school in our digitally-saturated world.

Sometimes life is stranger than reality TV. When Johnny Koester is laid off from his TV production job in New York, he moves west, landing in Los Angeles just as the ashes from the riots are settling. The only job he can find is in the burgeoning new field of "reality television," and suddenly Johnny's working like a dog on Shocking Hollywood Secrets and, better still, Psychic CrimeBusters. Unfortunately for Johnny, life at his new home in Hollywood Court View is even more bizarre than his work. Plagued from day one by his mysterious neighbor, Benny, Johnny soon finds himself following clues having to do with old baseball scorecards and Tony Bennett songs -- and inadvertently setting into motion a series of events that will reveal Benny's deep, dark East Coast past. The only thing going right in Johnny's life is Joan -- the director of a shelter for runaway teens -- who has a heart of gold and a body that makes him weak. He interviewed her for one of his shows, and sparks definitely flew. But will she still love him when Shocking Hollywood Secrets hits the air? Putting his own quirky spin on the classic tale of a New York transplant in L.A., Steven Schindler has penned a hilarious tale of underworld intrigue, whirlwind love, and the somewhat difficult birth of a TV phenomenon.

Raised in the squalor of a New York tenement until he was 10 years old, Nelson Díaz saw his life change when his family moved to a brand-new high-rise project in West Harlem in the 1950s. That experience, along with lessons learned as the only Latino law student at Temple University, would drive him throughout his life as a lawyer and activist, fighting for the expansion of rights for all Americans. "No soy de aquí ni de allá" is a mantra for Puerto Ricans who feel like foreigners wherever they are and who seek a place for themselves. In his inspiring autobiography, Not from Here, Not from There, Díaz tells the story of his struggles and triumphs as his perspective widened from the New York streets and law school classrooms to the halls of power in Philadelphia and Washington, DC. Whether as a leader in economic development, a pioneer in court reform, or a champion of fair housing, Díaz has never stopped advocating for others. Díaz was happy to be the first Latino to "do something," but he never wanted to be the last. This story of an outsider who worked his way to the inside offers powerful lessons on finding a place in the world by creating spaces where everyone is welcome.
