              Nevada; the near future; a family in crisis Biologist and single mother Naomi is worried about the impact her ground-breaking research might have on the world. And of the impact the world might have on her painfully awkward, home-schooled, ever-growing teenage son, Colt. He is so... brilliant he can code virtual realities our world hasn't even thought of yet; and so socially inept that he struggles to order takeaway pizza. When Colt secretly sends his mother's breakthrough research paper to a biotech conference in New York, and the conference is closed down, Naomi's worst fears come true. Colt's father crashes back into their lives, backed by the secretive security organisation he heads. The US government wants Naomi's research ... and Colt. Colt will soon have to leave the comfort of his virtual reality world, and face the challenge of discovering who he really is. And Naomi will have to decide how far she will go to protect her child. Would she kill a man? Would she destroy the world? From one of the most original voices in Irish writing, Connect is a thrillingly smart novel of ideas that explores what connection - both human and otherwise - might be in a digital age. It is a story of mothers and sons, but also about you, your phone, and the future.

              The Art of Is: Improvising as a Way of Life (Audio CD / Audio)

              A critically acclaimed musician and teacher presents a guide to the dynamics of improvisation It's easy to assume that Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous and endlessly influential I Have a Dream speech was pre-scripted, vetted by others, written, and re-written. It was not. Instead ...it was given on the fly, when from the audience singer Mahalia Jackson urged King off his prepared text. The result has inspired millions. The Art of Is contains breath-of-fresh-air thinking about how to cultivate the kind of game-changing creativity everyone seeks. Stephen Nachmanovitch shows exactly how the passion and immediacy of improvisation can be cultivated and how, in fact, we all improvise all the time-whether we are driving or deep in conversation. He explores ideas about being in the moment and reacting to people as they are, finding gold in unexpected distractions and roadblocks, and not only accepting but also celebrating imperfections in everyday practices. This creative mindfulness also makes innovation the province not of solitary geniuses but the result of engagement and interaction-and makes clear that improvising, creating, innovating are only of value when rooted in an ethical and social foundation. The results, Nachmanovitch shows, foster meaningful change and invention-and may just ignite a dream.

              Soldiers of a Different Cloth Lib/E: Notre Dame Chaplains in World War II
                

              Soldiers of a Different Cloth Lib/E: Notre Dame Chaplains in World War II (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Wukovits, John F.; Read by Dean, Robertson; Foreword by Jenkins Csc, Fr John I.; Introduction by Hesburgh Csc, Rev Theodore M.

              In Soldiers of a Different Cloth, New York Times bestselling author and military historian John Wukovits tells the inspiring story of thirty-five chaplains and missionaries who, while garnering little acclaim, performed extraordinary feats of courage and persistence during World ...War II. Ranging in age from twenty-two to fifty-three, these University of Notre Dame priests and nuns were counselor, friend, parent, and older sibling to the young soldiers they served. These chaplains experienced the horrors of the Death March in the Philippines and the filthy holds of the infamous Hell Ships. They dangled from a parachute while descending toward German fire at Normandy and shivered in Belgium's frigid snows during the Battle of the Bulge. They languished in German and Japanese prison camps, and stood speechless at Dachau. Based on a vast collection of letters, papers, records, and photographs in the archives of the University of Notre Dame, as well as other contemporary sources, Wukovits brings to life these nearly forgotten heroes who served wherever duty sent them and wherever the war dictated. Wukovits intertwines their stories on the battlefronts with their memories of Notre Dame. In their letters to their superior in South Bend, Indiana, they often asked about the campus, the Grotto, and the football team. Their love for Notre Dame helped buttress them during their wartime tribulations, and their return to campus was akin to a warm homecoming. Soldiers of a Different Cloth will fascinate and engage all listeners interested in the history of World War II and alumni, friends, and fans of the Fighting Irish.
