Havana is Cuba's soul: a mix of Third World, First World, and Other World. After over a decade of visits as a teacher, researcher, and friend, Karen Dubinsky looks past political slogans and tourist postcards to the streets, neighborhoods, and personalities of a complicated and contradictory city. Her affectionate, humorous vignettes illustrate how Havana's residents - old communist ladies, their skeptical offspring, musicians, underground vendors, entrepreneurial landlords, and poverty-stricken professors - go about their daily lives. As Cuba undergoes dramatic change, there is much to appreciate and learn from in the unlikely world Cubans have collectively built for themselves. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Queen's University Student Overseas Travel Fund - The Sonia Enjamio Fund, which funds Cuban/Canadian student exchange. 1.

The three girls have been inseparable best friends since third grade: Josie, the athletic one; Perri, the brilliant, acerbic drama queen; and Kat, the beauty, who also had brains, grace, and a heart open to all around her. But their last day of high school becomes their final day together after one of them brings a gun to school to resolve a mysterious feud. When the police arrive, they discover two wounded girls. The third girl is dead, killed instantly by a shot to the heart. For the shell-shocked parents, teachers, administrators, and students, healing must begin with answers to the usual questions, but only if the answers are safe ones, answers that will lead back to one girl and one family and absolve everyone else. For Homicide Sgt. Harold Lenhardt, this case is a mystery with more twists than these grief-stricken suburbanites are willing to acknowledge, and the sole lucid survivor, a girl with a teenager's uncanny knack for stonewalling, strikes him as being less than honest. What is she concealing? Is she trying to protect herself or someone else? Even the simplest secrets can kill...and kill again if no one is willing to confront them. 1. Language: English.

In Greek and Roman mythology, there are three goddesses who control human destiny and life: The first (Clotho) spins the thread of life, the second (Lachesis) determines its length, and the third (Atropos) cuts it off. Our lives are a mystery. How did we come to be? Could the ancient Greeks in their mythological way of thinking be right by creating goddesses such as Clotho, who spins the thread of life, or Lachesis who determines our length and Atropos who determines when our life is over? Could these goddesses possibly be angels assigned by God to control our destiny? In this next story, Alice Hill, who is happily married, bears three daughters and is stricken with Alzheimer's in her later years. Was this her destiny chosen by the goddess Lachesis, or was her destiny just meant to be? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anita Alberta Johnson.
