'I seem to have banged on this year rather more than usual. I make no apology for that, nor am I nervous that it will it make a jot of difference. I shall still be thought to be kindly, cosy and essentially harmless. I am in the pigeon-hole marked 'no threat' and did I stab Judi Dench with a pitchfork I should still be a teddy bear.' Alan Bennett's third collection of prose Keeping On Keeping On follows in the footsteps of the phenomenally successful Writing Home and Untold Stories, each published ten years apart. This latest collection contains Bennett's peerless diaries 2005 to 2015, reflecting on a decade that saw four premieres at the National Theatre (The Habit of Art, People, Hymn and Cocktail Sticks), a West End double-bill transfer, and the films of The History Boys and The Lady in the Van. There's a provocative sermon on private education given before the University at King's College Chapel, Cambridge, and 'Baffled at a Bookcase' offers a passionate defence of the public library. The book includes Denmark Hill, a darkly comic radio play set in suburban south London, as well as Bennett's reflections on a quarter of a century's collaboration with Nicholas Hytner. This is an engaging, humane, sharp, funny and unforgettable record of life according to the inimitable Alan Bennett.

This is the story of Ron Davis, a charismatic young man who struggled to beat a 12 year addiction to drugs, only to be brutally murdered at the age of 39. The story of his parents, Brooks and Jean Davis, two ordinary people with extraordinary courage, who barely overcome one tragedy, only to be dealt another. A story of faith. Though Ron stumbled many times on the path to overcoming his addiction, he never once gave up the fight, always believing that victory was possible. A story of hope. Just as Ron never lost faith in himself, Brooks and Jean never lost faith in their son. Nor did they stop believing that the man responsible for Ron's murder would eventually be brought to justice-despite a crushing series of blows in a legal battle that lasted nearly eight years.

His legacy serves as a reminder that good can still come from even the worst of circumstances.

The NAACP and the Implementation of Brown v. Board of Education in Virginia

Virginia was a battleground state in the struggle to implement Brown v. Board of Education, with one of the South’s largest and strongest NAACP units fighting against a program of noncompliance crafted by the state’s political leaders. Keep On Keeping On offers a detailed examination of how African Americans and the NAACP in Virginia successfully pursued a legal agenda that provided new educational opportunities for the state’s black population in the face of fierce opposition from segregationists and the Democratic Party of Harry F. Byrd Sr. Keep On Keeping On is the first book to offer a comprehensive view of African Americans’ efforts to obtain racial equality in Virginia in the later twentieth century. Brian J. Daugherity considers the relationship between the various levels of the NAACP, the ideas and actions of other African American organizations, and the stances of Virginia’s political leaders, white liberals and moderates, and segregationists. In doing so, the author provides a better understanding of the connections between the actions of white political leaders and those of black civil rights activists working to bring about school desegregation. Blending social, legal, southern, and African American history, this book sheds new light on the civil rights movement and white resistance to civil rights in Virginia and the South.

Author Gregory Wheeler has assembled a nice assortment of his poetry that revolves around the many emotions we have in life. Titled poems like, "Damn You Fear," "Comfort I Seek," or "Parents Do Care" can touch on the sensitive things we deal with personally or in families, whereas "Heart to Heart," "Fishing in the Boat," or "A Good Teacher" can inspire, and be uplifting in ways. There are so many more, and to think this is just the first book of poetry can be exciting for the future. For Gregory Wheeler poetry was an inspiration from his early years where his sister who had suffered from Multiple Sclerosis, wrote her own poetry even with her later years being totally bedridden. Sort of a family tradition, as his grandmother also wrote from time to time. Poetry has a way of finding the emotions that are stored deep from within. These trigger the words that compel one to begin. For Gregory Wheeler, after raising three children in some of the tougher times during the 80's and 90's many components of life gave him a wealth of things to write about. He started with a book called "A Distant Reality" that covered many trials and tribulations concerning his life and that of his family. A blend of poetry was mixed in and complimented his story. A few of those poems are also included in this book.

They were mostly infants or toddlers, brought out of extreme poverty and classified as "orphans," to St. Mary's Home for Boys in Gravesend, Kent, England. This Catholic Church-run residential school began in 1926 and continued on into the 1950s. For these youngsters, the only upbringing they'd know was the strict and structured discipline laid down by the Sisters of Charity. The boys were given food, clothing and shelter, but never love. In this remarkable book, members of a worldwide network of "old boys" have recorded their personal memories of childhood during the time they were in care at St. Mary's. The group, which adopted the motto of "Keep On Keeping On," was formed in 1988 by (Delvin) John Flynn of North London. Some remembrances are chapter-length accounts, others are poignant anecdotes emailed between KOKO members. For many, tracing their parentage became a decades-long challenge, as the Southwark Catholic Rescue Society steadfastly refused to release personal information. Included in "The Boys of St. Mary's" is a chronological account of KOKO members' recent lobbying to ensure records are appropriately archived when transferred to Diagrama, the latest records keeper. Those records - and the stories in this book - are vitally important to the social history of the era, St. Mary's legacy, "The Boys of St. Mary's" and their descendants.

Mit dem Welterfolg Der Spion, der aus der Kälte kam gab es für John le Carré keinen Weg zurück. Er kündigte seine Stelle im diplomatischen Dienst, reiste zu Recherchezwecken um den halben Erdball — Afrika, Russland, Israel, USA, Deutschland —, traf die Mächtigen aus Politik- und Zeitgeschehen und ihre heimlichen Handlanger. John le Carré ist ein exzellenter und unabhängiger Beobachter, mit untrüglichem Gespür für Macht und Verrat. Aber auch für die komischen Seiten des weltpolitischen Spiels. In seinen Memoiren blickt er zurück auf sein Leben und sein Schreiben. Die Memoiren eines Jahrhundertautors
