Twenty year old Benny Scott returned from World War II to enter college in Arkansas, where he found love and fame by running 125 yards for the 1949 Run of the Year. This book covers Benny’s life experiences from growing up in Smackover, Arkansas to serving in the Navy during World War II, to working for Standard Oil Company and moving to Independence, Missouri. The book explores family life in the late 1920s and 1930s as well as a little of the history of Smackover and Paragould, Arkansas. Growing up on a farm in southern Arkansas, Benny and his siblings had many interesting experiences that often help them later in life especially Benny and his brother who was in the NFL. Football was an integral part of Benny’s younger life opening up many opportunities for him to explore. After his Run of the Year in the Junior Rose Bowl, one of those opportunities was meeting several movie actors. In 2020 Benny is still alive and living with his youngest daughter, Susie. He is still very active with golfing and socializing with his friends at the local VFW. Readers interested in football history, WWII history or just a fun read about an interesting fellow, will like this book.

No matter how hard it is to get out the door, it's on the road that we meet our strengths and weaknesses, have the space to contemplate our hopes and dreams and ultimately find what makes us happy. Not every workout is an epiphany. Instead, each time out on the road—no matter how much of a battle it was to get there—is an exercise in getting to know ourselves a little bit better. It’s on that road that we learn our strengths and weaknesses, ponder our hopes and dreams, and ultimately discover what makes us happy. For women who draw even a portion of their strength from being active, Run Like a Girl 365 Days a Year serves as a Book of Days. It's practical, inspirational, and personal, with a dash of the existential and neurotic, it’s a fresh take on the popular thought-a-day books, geared toward women athletes. Containing 365 entries for a full year of running inspiration, Run like a Girl 365 Days a Year revels in the joys we discover as we greet our athletic selves each new day, and confront the obstacles thrown in our way by the world, by our bodies and, most importantly, by our minds. Some of the topics include balance, body image, the battle of the sexes, sisterhood, and aging. Light-hearted, honest, and authentic, Run Like a Girl 365 Days a Year is an inspiring daily reminder of every woman’s strength and potential.

Mirela Roznoveanus Life on the Run is both a haunting novel and an essential historical and human document. As a novel, it captures the visceral experience of immigration and exile like no other book, fiction or nonfiction. It is fascinating to read that to lose ones mother tongue is to suffer the amputation of a vital organ and that adapting to a strange culture changes the entire body. Using a light touch of magical realism, Roznoveanu vividly evokes the ancient Romanian culture she comes fromrich with magic, portent, and enigmaand its poisoning by Communism. She also gives us a fresh view of the dynamic, jarring culture of America, which both attracts and punishes the protagonist, infusing her body with a strange energy. As a document, this novel incorporates the authors journals from the period immediately following Romanias 1989 revolutionbetter termed an internecine coup dtat. By preserving and publishing this record, Roznoveanu has saved from oblivion the struggle of democratic activists, artists, and journalists whose hopes for a free Romania surged with Ceausescus fall but were brutally crushed. Life on the Run was suppressed in Romania, and little is known in the West of this critical period in which ruling communists changed their skin without ever releasing their grip on power. Scholarly studies might reach few, but this novel/memoir brings that human tragedy to life. Roznoveanu lived it and still lives its consequencesas, unknowingly, do we all. Annie Gottlieb Annie Gottlieb is a New Yorkbased author, critic, and blogger whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Nation, O, the Oprah Magazine, and other national publications. She is the author or coauthor of several books, including Do You Believe in Magic? Bringing the Sixties Back Home, Wishcraft: How to Get What You Really Want, and The Cube: Keep the Secret.
