Genetic Distance: James Crow
Then He Kissed Me is the second audiobook in Laura Trentham´s riveting Cottonbloom series. Can two hearts come together in one divided town? As a boy, Nash Hawthorne spent countless afternoons on the Louisiana side of Cottonbloom with Tally Fournette, wading in the river, peeling oranges, and catching frogs. When illness stole his mother, Nash yearned to take Tally and run away - for good. Instead, he crossed the state line to live with his aunt. It was a short distance as the crow flies, but it swept him into a whole new world.... After Nash left, Tally managed to struggle through her own losses without him. But now that she’s crossed paths with him again - at Cottonbloom College, where the grown-up, gorgeous Nash teaches history - she is reminded of their cherished youthful connection...and an attraction that has only gotten stronger with age. Between Tally’s possessive ex and Nash’s snobbish aunt, no one thinks they belong together. In a town torn apart by old resentments and rivalries, can they find their way back to the life they once shared - and turn their long-lost dreams into a real and lasting love? 1. Language: English.

#1 New York Times Bestseller Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) is an American icon and key figure of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper´s farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington, and from receiving beatings from state troopers to receiving the Medal of Freedom from the first African-American president. Now, to share his remarkable story with new generations, Lewis presents March, a graphic novel trilogy, in collaboration with co-writer Andrew Aydin and New York Times best-selling artist Nate Powell (winner of the Eisner Award and LA Times Book Prize finalist for Swallow Me Whole). March is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis´ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis´ personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement. Book One spans John Lewis´ youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall. Many years ago, John Lewis and other student activists drew inspiration from the 1958 comic book ´´Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story.´´ Now, his own comics bring those days to life for a new audience, testifying to a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.

New York Times best-selling author Jack Campbell takes listeners on an incredible journey through time in this collection of seven stories. The centerpiece of Borrowed Time is ´´Betty Knox and Dictionary Jones in the Mystery of the Missing Teenage Anachronisms´´. When you´ve traveled through time and are stuck in the body of your 15-year-old self, it isn´t the best time to have some other time travelers looking to kill you. Especially when the person who´s supposed to be keeping an eye out for the bad guys is stuck in his own 15-year-old body. In four interlinked short stories, temporal interventionists Tom and Pam meet cute, then work together to solve some of history´s greatest mysteries. And in ´´Joan´´, Kate is a time-traveling researcher who´s gotten a little too close to Joan of Arc both in time and emotionally. With no distance, scientific or otherwise, what will happen when she has a chance to rescue Joan from being burnt at the stake? Our journey through time concludes with ´´Crow´s Feat´´, where a skeptical writer goes back to Elizabethan England to discover the true author of Shakespeare´s plays. 1. Language: English.

In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy set in the world of the New York Times best-selling Others series, an inn owner and her shape-shifting lodger find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets. Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others--vampires, shape-shifters, and even deadlier paranormal beings. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget.... After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns such as Vicki´s don´t have any distance from the Others, the dominant predators who rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what is out there watching you. Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe--one of the shape-shifting Others--discovers a murdered man, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, ancient forces are roused by the disturbance in their domain. They have rules that must not be broken--and all the destructive powers of nature at their command. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alexandra Harris.
