Featured Book - Timeless Travels: Tales of Mystery, Intrigue, Humor and Enchantment by Joseph Rotenberg
Who is today’s American Jew? Joseph Rotenberg styles himself as a modern-day maggid (traditional Jewish storyteller), weaving tales from the everyday to the fantastic, each one bringing the reader a slice of the American Jewish experience. Just as Sholem Aleichem did more than a hundred years ago in his famous stories describing Russian Jewish life, these tales inform and entertain by uncovering little-known events and personalities that have impacted the American Jewish world. In the 1950s, the late Harry Golden, in his popular collections Only in America and For Two Cents Plain, introduced Jewish culture to many non-Jewish Americans. Joseph Rotenberg’s work updates that vision to depict the contemporary, modern American Jew who is today increasingly as much at home in the halls of the Ivy League, the corridors of power in Washington, the corporate boardroom, and the theater as he is in the beit midrash and the synagogue. You'll laugh, cry, and wonder as you travel through Joseph Rotenberg’s incisive and at times laugh-outloud funny collection of tales.
“Timeless Travels is a fascinating and thought-provoking account of the experiences and travels of Jewish people throughout history, by the talented author, Joseph Rotenberg. Timeless Travels will appeal to readers of all ages. I highly recommend this page-turning collection of short stories.”

Featured Book - Blood Memory Society by D.A. Field
What if you could inherit your ancestors’ memories? What implications would such an inheritance have on society?
In Blood Memory Society, Field’s story is a fast-paced, action thriller, science adventure with a little sci-fi and conspiracy thrown in. In this first book in the Blood Memory Society series, the protagonist, Dr. Will Dunbar, is a doctor of reproductive medicine and just as he is about to embark on his dream job as the head of the Reproductive Medicine Department at the Mayo Clinic, he receives an emergency call from a former classmate at West Point, on a matter of national security. Dunbar’s expertise in the fertility world and a desire to do what is best for his country compels him to respond to his former classmate's urgent plea to hustle to Washington, D.C. Dunbar's patriotism, curiosity, and knowledge of the ocean, take him on a wild ride straight into a head-on collision with a never-before revealed government program, international conspirators, family secrets, and hidden agendas.
Your heart will pound as Dunbar fights for his life and love, and you will feel the kick in your gut as he confronts betrayal. A race to the finish, you will be both surprised and bewildered by its ending.

SEE OUR REVIEW
The book, Corn, Cotton and Chocolate: How the Maya Changed the World, reveals how the plant and fiber cultivars created by the ancient world's greatest agronomists have had a large effect on the world and its population.
The Maya were the longest-lived civilization in history. Their civilization began in 2500 BC on a timeline with the ancient Sumerians and terminated in 900 AD during the reign of Charlemagne. Their histories did not converge because the Maya and other world civilizations did not know of each other’s existence. The Maya were the phantoms of history.
They were the greatest agronomists in world history. Their cultivars nourished the Maya culture and enabled their rapid growth into a society of profound thinkers. After European contact, the inventive products of Maya agronomy were disseminated around the world. The integration of Maya cultivars into world cultures has changed the course of world history.
Maya Cultivars now feed and clothe most of the world’s population. They have increased the global population, started wars, overthrown monarchies, ignited the industrial revolution, initiated educational systems, started sports empires, changed the lifestyles of world cultures and have killed more people than all the wars in history. The book reveals how history was changed by a civilization that collapsed over a thousand years ago. Maya cultivars are living inventions that have become a part of the world's heritage and continue to make history.
