Finding a great book beyond the in-crowd mainstream

A new way to find great new booksby Rob Neufeld            I keep searching for ways to be as open as possible to great books as they come out.  It’s not easy because: 1) our guides—publishers and reviewers—follow certain channels, comparable to radio playlists, to stay smart; and 2) a random approach is impractical.            Readers’ online reviews help, but there’s too much; I need a filter, based partly on authority.  I could ask people in person—and that’s pretty interesting.  Rarely do…See More

"Us versus Them" does not help fight against racism; worsens sectionalism

“Us versus them” is not good historyby Rob Neufeld             Writing about history and the complex lives that play out within it does not sell as well as team spirit, especially in this age of clicks and likes.            I recently confronted this truth when I wrote my article last week about the minds of our leaders in 1851. The word “slavery” was added to the headline to alert people to its relevance.  Seeing that term connected people to a cause they felt strongly about, particularly in…See More

Fred and Susan Chappell, are not only an attractive couple, and a very smart couple, but they are also super nice!  As I get older, the quality of "nice" rises higher and higher in my esteem.

I was thinking of the thousand or so would-be writers that I come into contact each year, and always think that many could benefit greatly from events like Fred Chappell's talk and reading tonight.  You could pay $500 for a writer's workshop, and still not get the quality, talent, and high caliber instruction that I was exposed to tonight.

These last few months we've had several inspiring authors talk about their research and writing and career, and more (see our website www.fountainheadbookstore.com).  I am grateful, and humbled and awed to get to learn from these authors, as well as enjoy the fruits of their labors.
