Sara Evans—a Billboard, ACM, and CMA Award–winning country music star who’s been named one of People’s “50 Most Beautiful People” and competed on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars—has been inspiring fans throughout her successful music career.

In this powerful, personal, and often humorous book, Sara opens up and shares stories from her career, describing what it’s like living in the spotlight and how her faith keeps her strong. She writes about overcoming life’s most challenging experiences, from a childhood accident that nearly took her life, to the loss she experienced when her parents divorced, and from her own painful and very public divorce, to finding incredible love when she least expected it with former pro quarterback-turned-sportscaster Jay Barker. Now, after over a decade of marriage, Sara and Jay’s blended family of nine is thriving, filling her life with focus and meaning.

As she weaves the narrative of her life, Sara candidly reveals the things that are most important to her and her family now, her favorite tips about staying true to herself and her faith, knowing when to ask for help, abandoning perfectionism, and the importance of a strong support group of friends and family. Fans old and new will enjoy this inspiring, heartfelt book.

“When I first met Sara many years ago she was candid, funny, smart, and talented. All these years later I still see that girl, but now she’s even more candid, funny, smart and talented! We bonded right off the bat, and our bond all these years later remains centered in a shared experience of being a mother, an artist, a business woman and navigating the sometimes difficult reality of ‘having it all’ in a challenging business. We have so many similarities in our childhood including singing with a family band, being raised in a rural community, and learning the work ethic and values of the Midwest. I am so happy she is telling her story.” —Martina McBride, award-winning singer-songwriter and record producer

“The first moment you hear Sara’s voice, you know it’s unique. Everything she writes about in her music revolves around family, faith, fun, and fearlessness. Her outer beauty is obvious, however she is also beautiful on the inside and gives to so many from her caring spirit. We can all learn from her example of how to be a great artist, writer, mother, wife, and friend. I loved her before, but after reading this book my love has grown for her. She was ‘born to fly’ and you will fly too as you read each page.” —Joe Galante, former president of RCA Records and former chairman of Sony Music Nashville

Sara Evans has sold over seven million albums and has garnered five #1 hits on country radio including “A Little Bit Stronger,” the title track of her chart-topping 2011 album Stronger. The single was number one for two weeks and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Dan Mathews - Like Crazy

Tuesday, August 11, 7pm CST
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

 

 

Left Bank Books welcomes animal rights activist and author Dan Mathews, who will discuss his new memoir, Like Crazy: Life with My Mother and Her Invisible Friends, on Facebook Live at 7pm CST on August 11. Mathews will be in conversation with TV writer and producer Bryan Fuller. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of Like Crazy from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

A hilarious and heartbreaking memoir about an outlandish mother and son on an odyssey of self-discovery, and the rag-tag community that rallied to help them as the mother entered the final phase of her life.

Dan Mathews knew that his witty, bawdy, unhinged mother, Perry, was unable to maintain her fierce independence at seventy-eight—so he flew her across the country to Virginia to live with him in an 1870 townhouse badly in need of repairs. But to Dan, a screwdriver is a cocktail not a tool, and he was soon overwhelmed with two fixer-uppers: the house and his mother.

Unbowed, Dan and Perry built a rollicking life together fueled by costume parties, road trips, after-hours gatherings, and an unshakeable sense of humor as they faced down hurricanes, blizzards, and Perry’s steady decline. They got by with the help of an ever-expanding circle of sidekicks—Dan’s boyfriends (past and present), ex-cons, sailors, strippers, deaf hillbillies, evangelicals, and grumpy cats—while flipping the parent-child relationship on its head.

But it wasn’t until a kicking-and-screaming trip to the emergency room that Dan discovered the cause of his mother’s unpredictable, often caustic behavior: Perry had lived her entire adult life as an undiagnosed schizophrenic.

Irreverent and emotionally powerful, Like Crazy is a darkly comic tale about the perils and rewards of taking in a fragile parent without derailing your life in the process. A rare story about mental illness with an uplifting conclusion, it shows the remarkable growth that takes place when a wild child settles down to care for the wild woman who raised him.

“Exquisite. Full of wry humor, tenderness, and compassion.” —Jeannette Walls, New York Times bestselling author

"Dan Mathews writes with such wit and tenderness about his mother's descent into previously undiagnosed schizophrenia. But that’s not all: this book is also about his journey to self-acceptance and ultimately finding love. I couldn’t recommend it more."  —Alan Cumming

Dan Mathews was born and raised in Orange County, California, by a single mother who encouraged her three boys to bring home stray animals. In high school, he was beaten up for being gay and credits those rough times with helping him develop the thick skin needed to be an animal activist. He spent two years in Italy working as a fashion model and bit-part actor before returning to the US to earn a degree in history from American University in Washington, DC. Shortly afterwards, he began working at PETA as a receptionist and within a year was organizing protests. As PETA’s Director of Campaigns, he helps increase awareness of the rights of animals through high-profile events. He has been arrested for his activities more than twenty times but usually gets released from jail within a day. Through a unique combination of sex, humor, and glamour, he has turned animal rights into one of the hottest causes of the last two decades.

Bryan Fuller is an American television writer and producer who has created a number of television series, including Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies, Hannibal, and American Gods. Fuller worked as writer and executive producer on the Star Trek television series Voyager and Deep Space Nine; he is also the co-creator of Star Trek: Discovery.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Julian E. Zelizer - Burning Down the House

Monday, July 20, 7pm CST
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books welcomes author and CNN Political Analyst Julian E. Zelizer, who will discuss his new book, Burning Down the House: Newt Gingrich, the Fall of a Speaker, and the Rise of the New Republican Party, on Facebook Live at 7pm CST on July 20. Zelizer will be in conversation with Norman Ornstein, author and contributing editor for The AtlanticJoin us on our Facebook Page and order copies of Burning Down the House from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

The story of how Newt Gingrich and his allies tainted American politics, launching an enduring era of brutal partisan warfare.

When Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, President Obama observed that Trump “is not an outlier; he is a culmination, a logical conclusion of the rhetoric and tactics of the Republican Party.” In Burning Down the House, historian Julian Zelizer pinpoints the moment when our country was set on a path toward an era of bitterly partisan and ruthless politics, an era that was ignited by Newt Gingrich and his allies. In 1989, Gingrich brought down Democratic Speaker of the House Jim Wright and catapulted himself into the national spotlight. Perhaps more than any other politician, Gingrich introduced the rhetoric and tactics that have shaped Congress and the Republican Party for the last three decades. Elected to Congress in 1978, Gingrich quickly became one of the most powerful figures in America not through innovative ideas or charisma, but through a calculated campaign of attacks against political opponents, casting himself as a savior in a fight of good versus evil. Taking office in the post-Watergate era, he weaponized the good government reforms newly introduced to fight corruption, wielding the rules in ways that shocked the legislators who had created them. His crusade against Democrats culminated in the plot to destroy the political career of Speaker Wright.

While some of Gingrich’s fellow Republicans were disturbed by the viciousness of his attacks, party leaders enjoyed his successes so much that they did little collectively to stand in his way. Democrats, for their part, were alarmed, but did not want to sink to his level and took no effective actions to stop him. It didn’t seem to matter that Gingrich’s moral conservatism was hypocritical or that his methods were brazen, his accusations of corruption permanently tarnished his opponents. This brand of warfare worked, not as a strategy for governance but as a path to power, and what Gingrich planted, his fellow Republicans reaped. He led them to their first majority in Congress in decades, and his legacy extends far beyond his tenure in office. From the Contract with America to the rise of the Tea Party and the Trump presidential campaign, his fingerprints can be seen throughout some of the most divisive episodes in contemporary American politics. Burning Down the House presents the alarming narrative of how Gingrich and his allies created a new normal in Washington.

“Newt Gingrich was one of the most consequential figures in American politics in the Twentieth Century, with major responsibility for our current political turmoil. A lot has been written about the rise and fall of Newt. It takes a good historian to provide insight, new material and context to what we already know. Julian Zelizer is a first rate historian, and even for those of us present at Gingrich’s emergence into national life, especially through his assault on Democratic Speaker Jim Wright, and throughout his career, Burning Down the House enlightens and enriches our understanding of a pivotal time in American life.” —Norman Ornstein, co-author of It’s Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism

“In this essential history of Newt Gingrich, Zelizer shows that Donald Trump isn't so much an innovator as an imitator.  Zelizer argues that Gingrich wrote the modern Republican Party's destructive playbook, and the Democrats and the media have yet to figure out an effective response.”  —Jane Mayer, author of Dark Money and Chief Washington Correspondent, The New Yorker

Julian E. Zelizer has been among the pioneers in the revival of American political history. He is the Malcolm Stevenson Forbes, Class of 1941 Professor of History and Public Affairs at Princeton University and a CNN Political Analyst and a regular guest on NPR’s "Here and Now." He is the author and editor of 20 books including, The Fierce Urgency of Now: Lyndon Johnson, Congress, and the Battle for the Great Society (2015), the winner of the D.B. Hardeman Prize for the Best Book on Congress. His most recent book, co-authored with Kevin Kruse, is Fault Lines: A History of the United States Since 1974 (Norton)His new book is Burning Down the House: Newt Gingrich, The Fall of a Speaker, and the Rise of the New Republican Party (Penguin Press).  Zelizer, who has published over 1000 op-eds, has received fellowships from the Brookings Institution, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation, the New York Historical Society, and New America. He also co-hosts a popular podcast called Politics & Polls.

Norman Ornstein is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He is a contributing editor and writer for The Atlantic, and has been an election eve analyst for CBS News and BBC news. He is also Chairman of the Board of the Campaign Legal Center. He served as a senior counselor to the Continuity of Government Commission and co-directed the AEI-Brookings Project on alternatives to the Independent Counsel Act. His many books include Intensive Care: How Congress Shapes Health Policy (AEI, 2006); The Broken Branch: How Congress Is Failing America and How to Get It Back on Track, with Thomas E. Mann (Oxford University Press, 2006, named by the Washington Post one of the best books of 2006 and called by the Economist "a classic"); and the New York Times bestseller, It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism, also with Tom Mann, published in May 2012 by Basic Books. His latest book, with EJ Dionne and Tom Mann, “One Nation After Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate and the Not-Yet-Deported” was published by St Martin’s Press in September 2017, and was immediately on the New York Times and Washington Post best seller lists.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Richard J. Lazarus - Rule of Five

Wednesday, July 22, 7pm CST
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books and KDHX Earthworms welcome law professor and author Richard J. Lazarus, who will discuss his new book, The Rule of Five: Making Climate History at the Supreme Court, on Facebook Live at 7pm CST on July 22. Lazarus will be in conversation with KDHX Earthworms' host Jean Ponzi. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of The Rule of Five from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

The gripping inside story of how an unlikely team of lawyers and climate activists overcame conservative opposition--and their own divisions--to win the most important environmental case ever brought before the Supreme Court.

When the Supreme Court announced its ruling in Massachusetts v. EPA, the decision was immediately hailed as a landmark. But this was the farthest thing from anyone's mind when Joe Mendelson, an idealistic lawyer working on a shoestring budget for an environmental organization no one had heard of, decided to press his quixotic case.

In October 1999, Mendelson hand-delivered a petition to the Environmental Protection Agency asking it to restrict greenhouse gas emissions from new cars. The Clean Air Act had authorized the EPA to regulate "any air pollutant" that could reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health. But could something as ordinary as carbon dioxide really be considered a harmful pollutant? And even if the EPA had the authority to regulate emissions, could it be forced to do so?

Environmentalists urged Mendelson to stand down. Thinking of his young daughters and determined to fight climate change, he pressed on--and brought Sierra Club, Greenpeace, NRDC, and twelve state attorneys general led by Massachusetts to his side. This unlikely group--they called themselves the Carbon Dioxide Warriors--challenged the Bush administration and took the EPA to court.

The Rule of Five tells the story of their unexpected triumph. We see how accidents, infighting, luck, superb lawyering, and the arcane practices of the Supreme Court collided to produce a legal miracle. An acclaimed advocate, Richard Lazarus reveals the personal dynamics of the justices and dramatizes the workings of the Court. The final ruling, by a razor-thin 5-4 margin, made possible important environmental safeguards which the Trump administration now seeks to unravel.

"The gripping story of the most important environmental law case ever decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. Richard Lazarus's compelling narrative is enlivened by colorful characters, a canny dissection of courtroom strategy, and a case where the stakes are, literally, as big as the world." --Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent

"There's no better book if you want to understand the past, present, and future of environmental litigation." --Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction

Richard J. Lazarus is the Howard J. and Katherine W. Aibel Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. He has represented the United States, state and local governments, and environmental groups in the United States Supreme Court in more than 40 cases and has presented oral argument in 14 of those cases. Professor Lazarus writes broadly on topics relating to Supreme Court decision-making, focusing on both advocacy before and within the Court, and on environmental law. He previously worked on the law faculty at Washington University in St. Louis and for the Solicitor General's Office (1986-89), where he was Assistant to the Solicitor General. He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1979 and has a B.S. from the University of Illinois in Chemistry and a B.A. in Economics.

Jean Ponzi has been an environmental advocate and resource person for the greater St. Louis community for over 30 years. As her volunteer community service, Jean produces and hosts the enviro-interview show Earthworms for KDHX St. Louis Independent Media. On her job as Green Resources Manager for the EarthWays Center of Missouri Botanical Garden, she coaches sustainable thinking and practice for businesses of all kinds through the St. Louis Green Business Challenge, and connects her fellow humans to nature as a Garden team leader of the regional initiative, BiodiverseCity St. Louis. Her column Earthworms Castings has been a local feature in The Healthy Planet Magazine since 1997.
