Atlanta’s prize-winning author Melissa Fay Greene has written a new book, No Biking in the House without a Helmet, a joyous account of a great, loving, complicated and ever-expanding family — her own! The story behind the book is as simple one: when Melissa and her husband Atlanta attorney Don Samuel found their four kids growing up and leaving the house, they decided to “backfill,” meaning, “whenever one leaves, we’ll get another.” Over eight years, five children have joined the family from orphanages in Bulgaria and Ethopia. Melissa’s account of their laughter and tears will charm and delight you. Greene is the author of The Temple Bombing, Praying for Sheetrock, and There is No Me Without You; One Woman’s Odyssey to Rescue Africa’s Children.
Carmen Deedy joins us to showcase her exciting, colorful new book, 14 Cows for America. Wonderfully illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez—who like Deedy is a native Cuban now living near Atlanta—it is an inspiring, delightful story produced in collaboration with Wilson Kimeli Naiyomah. It begins in 2002 in a far-flung village in western Kenya where hundreds of the Masai people have gathered to make a most unusual, heartfelt gift to the American people in the tragic wake of the September 11 attacks.
The renowned author of many bestselling books including Traveling Mercies and Grace: Thoughts on Faith, visits us with a tough and touching new novel, Imperfect Birds. “Heartbreaking and delightful, moving and hopeful, the novel reminds us how our children are connected to and independent of us, and that no matter how difficult our struggle is with them, love underlies it all and saves us. This novel captures the deepest, purest, most terrifying experience of parents fearing for their children. With great insight and humor, Anne Lamott shows us what it means these dangerous days to be a parent, what it means to be a child, and what it means to be a family.” She visited us at the First Baptist Church Decatur on April 9, 2010.
