The First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival

(as of Aug 22,2019 22:41:47 UTC – Details)



Welcome to Grand Prairie, Louisiana—land of confounding accents, hard-drinking senior citizens, and charming sinners—brought to hilarious life in a bracing, heartfelt debut novel simmering with Cajun spice. . .

Father Steve Sibille has come home to the bayou to take charge of St. Pete’s church. Among his challenges are teenybopper altar girls, insomnia-curing confessions, and alarmingly alluring congregant Vicky Carrier. Then there’s Miss Rita, an irrepressible centenarian with a taste for whiskey, cracklins, and sticking her nose in other people’s business.

When an outsider threatens to poach Father Steve’s flock, Miss Rita suggests he fight back by staging an event that will keep St. Pete’s parishioners loyal forever. As The First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival draws near, help comes from the strangest places. And while the road to the festival may be paved with good intentions—not to mention bake sales, an elephant, and the most bizarre cook-out ever—where it will lead is anyone’s guess. . .

“A sparkling debut.”

–Luis Alberto Urrea, author of Queen of America

“Delightful. . ..Wheaton writes with an infectious energy, and his affection for the characters and culture is authentic.”

Text Me When You Get Home: The Evolution and Triumph of Modern Female Friendship

$16.00 - $12.53

(as of Aug 22,2019 22:40:48 UTC – Details)



Text Me has the thrills and laughs of a romantic comedy, but with an inverted message: ‘There just isn’t only one love story in our lives,’ Schaefer writes. If you’re lucky, friends will be the protagonists in these multiple love stories. It’s high time that we start seeing it that way.”—NPR.org

A personal and sociological examination—and ultimately a celebration—of the evolution of female friendship in pop culture and modern society

For too long, women have been told that we are terrible at being friends, that we can’t help being cruel or competitive, or that we inevitably abandon each other for romantic partners. But we are rejecting those stereotypes and reclaiming the power of female friendship.
 
In Text Me When You Get Home, journalist Kayleen Schaefer interviews more than one hundred women about their BFFs, soulmates, girl gangs, and queens while tracing this cultural shift through the lens of pop culture. Our love for each other is reflected in Abbi and Ilana, Issa and Molly, #squadgoals, the acclaim of Girls Trip and Big Little Lies, and Galentine’s Day.
 
Schaefer also includes her own history of grappling with a world that told her to rely on men before she realized that her true source of support came from a strong tribe of women. Her personal narrative and celebration of her own relationships weaves throughout the evolution of female friendship on-screen, a serious look at how women have come to value one another and our relationships.
 
Text Me When You Get Home is a validation that has never existed before. A thoughtful, heart-soaring, deeply reported look at how women are taking a stand for their friendships and not letting go.

Radio Flyer

By Richard Donner

Lorraine Bracco, John Heard and Oscar winner Ben Johnson (Best Supporting Actor, The Last PictureShow) star in this moving story of a family torn apart by violence – and healed by imagination. Elijah Wood and Joseph Mazzello co-star as Bracco’s two young sons, devoted brothers who escape their chaotic family life with dreams of flying. Inspired by a local legend, they attempt to build a working airplane. And in the process of transforming their ordinary red wagon into a fantastical flying machine, they transform their own lives into an extraordinary adventure. A beautifully-made movie filled with all the heartache and joy of childhood, Radio Flyer is “daring, amazing, and wonderful.A deeply moving film.” (Dennis Cunningham, WCBS-TV)
