Clare Hanrahan’s most recent book: A bravely honest and richly detailed account of growing up in Jim Crow Memphis on the white side of the color line in the midst of a large Irish-Catholic family in the Baptist Bible Belt. Glimpses of Ida B. Wells, Mother Jones, Boss Crump, Dorothy Day Martin Luther King, Jr., and Elvis Presley give historical context to one woman’s dogma-defying 1950s childhood and 1960s coming-of-age in the turmoil of the Civil Rights Movement, the Sanitation Workers’ Strike, and the Viet Nam War. Beginning with an overview of her ancestral past, from survivors of The Great Hunger, the Civil War, and laboring on the railroads, this is a story of tragedy and triumph, diligence and determination, grace and gratitude, Providence and prescience, punctuated with lucid dreams. Follow the writer beyond Memphis to a life of off-the-grid adventures in the mountains of Appalachia, down the Mississippi River, across the ocean to Ireland, sailing in Puget Sound, taking to the streets advocating for justice and peace, engaging in radical civil resistance, enduring a stint in Federal Prison and living to tell the tale.

This book is available at Amazon.com and  at Malaprop’s on Haywood.

Julie Parker‘s book: After having her world turned upside-down in unexpectedly heartbreaking ways, Julie Savage Parker is diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2013. Her life takes on new meaning as she finds the power to meet the challenges and opportunities for growth head-on.

The Vocabulary of Joy is a witty and irreverent portrayal of her journey healing cancer naturally, having said NO to conventional slash-burn-poison treatment.

At times poignant, at times playful, her story shows a woman brought not to her knees, but to her feet, in the face of her diagnosis. The gift of cancer in her life brings with it healing in body, mind, and spirit as she faces her diagnosis (and her own demons) with humor, compassion, and a healthy dose of you’re-not-the-boss-of-me!

This book is available at Amazon.com and across the street at Mountain Made in the Grove Arcade.
