What's On this Summer
Dealing Dreams by Jeffrey Lo
Intelligent go-getters Zoe and Trey are striving to keep their heads afloat in today’s economy. They’ve graduated from elite schools only to face unemployment and chances at low-paying “McJobs”. They’re underqualified for jobs they want, overqualified for jobs they don’t want. Then Trey comes up with a striking new concept for a social networking website … an idea that if developed right, might make them rich and change their lives forever. As they pursue their Silicon Valley dream, Zoe and Trey’s lives do change profoundly … but not in the ways that they imagined.

Letters to a Daughter from Prison by Lavonne Mueller
‘Little one, may you grow up into a brave soldier in India’s service!’
Nehru the statesman is continually separated from his shy, intellectual daughter Indira Priyadarshini by the turmoil of building a country. They forge the bonds of a loving, nurturing and formative relationship through their detailed, prolific letters to each other. “I felt compelled to write this story because I could not find a parallel in the Western world of a statesman father who nurtured his daughter in such a way.” Lavonne Mueller.
