              BENITA: prey for him is the true story of bright, vivacious Benita Kane and the Catholic priest who lured her from childhood into a disastrous, twenty-year entanglement that changed the course of her life. What happened to this fatherless girl in the hierarchical, patriarchal wor...ld of Dubuque, Iowa during the 40's, 50's and 60's is not simply one more tale of clerical sexual abuse, but rather an astounding, maddening, compelling account of what it was like to grow up in a family, community and culture so dominated by the Catholic church that no one could recognize the ominous events developing around them. As Benita's friend and classmate from second-grade through college, Virginia Tranel writes from the unique stance of both participant and observer.

              Appleton, don't look quite yet, but there's a woman just behind you whom I want you to see. I never before saw such a face and figure! They are simply perfection! The above remarks were made by a young man, perhaps thirty years of age, to his companion, who, evidently, was somewh...at his senior. The two gentlemen were seated at a private table in the dining-room of a large hotel in Chicago, Illinois, and were themselves both handsome and distinguished in appearance. There! the speaker continued, as a slight commotion near them indicated that some one was rising from a table; she is about to leave the room, and now is your chance. The gentleman addressed turned to look as the lady passed; but the moment she was beyond the possibility of hearing he broke into a laugh of amusement.

              The Benson brothers have put together not only a fine book of poems well worth keeping close but also a strong testament of faith in those subtleties of blood that can elevate the ordinary into song. -Gary Gildner, winner of the Iowa Poetry Prize, Pushcart Prize, etc.; author of ...two novels, a collection of short stories, two memoirs, and nine books of poetry, including Cleaning a Rainbow, his most recent. This is what poetry was meant to be, neither overly-sentimental nor veiled in obscure imagery. The poems read like music you have discovered as you search across the radio dial. Once found you stay tuned, turning the pages for more. This is adult poetry with risky passion, psychological pain, sensual thirst and the ache of longing. There are no forced inventions or over-clever literary devices. In fact, you are rarely aware of the writer, only the emotional landscape that unfolds with each line. The writing has a quality found in Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past - an old picket fence, the ruts in a lane. The sun doesn't merely shine on a meadow, but rather is This July-fireball afternoon in a pasture . . . When an alcoholic, frail father irritatedly boots an empty paint can towards his sons it becomes the tumbling, end-over-end kick-off of an imagined football game, the boys waiting underneath it to return the shiny offering. I find the value of any poem is increased or diminished in the sharing. The sharing of these poems, I can attest, stokes the delight and interest of another. SCHOOLED LIVES: Poems by Two Brothers is a gift Barry and Steve Benson have placed in our hands. -John Gaps III, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, author of God Left Us Alone Here: A Book of War (poems and combat photographs). Who says a book of poems need be the domain of a singular poet and aesthetic? With Schooled Lives by accomplished poets and brothers Steve and Barry Benson, you get double the perspectives, imagery and deft language about life in the unruly, rural Midwest a

              We are now 10 years into the 21st century. Many global challenges are ahead of us. There is a need for citizens who are competent, engaged and responsible. What if our schools stopped manufacturing learners and started developing reflective thinkers capable of making wise, inform...ed decisions? What if our educators started teaching students using the new understanding of the way learning is acquired? What if we gave students the confidence to monitor their own learning and the opportunity to learn in ways that met their specific needs? What if we could instil in every learner the mindset that anything is possible through hard work? What if we created citizens who were creative problem solvers, capable of deep critical thinking, respectful of diverse opinions and secure in their relations with others? What if we could develop learners who were capable of working together to find solutions to future problems and who could provide alternatives to avoid such catastrophes? It is time for our students to join the 21st century. I am excited at the possibilities of What if? I am terrified if we don't!
