Gilleland Poetry - Storoems and Poems - Review


"Retired professor of Microbiology, Harry Gilleland certainly has a variety of experiences and thought-provoking insights to share in his latest poetry book, Gilleland Poetry - Storoems and Poems. Harry's poetry has appeared at numerous establishments over the years and he has authored three books to date. His dedication to and love of poetry is evident in the way that he writes his work.

Evocative and mentally stimulating throughout it's 205 pages this book is sure to strike a cord within any reader. War experiences and trials of man are mingled with true-life experiences, fantasy, love and nature.

Harry explores the wonders of nature in a beautiful way and returns to the theme that seemingly runs throughout the entire book - what it could mean for man. Fun, playful - sometimes sad. He has us riding the rapids with him one moment and learning shocking news about American history in the next breath.

Bluebird Rescue and You Snake in the Grass were two of my favorites because they invoke awe of nature. But I also got a real kick out of The Power of Splinters and One Leaf's Journey, which are clearly parallels to life experiences.

I really cried over A Journey Home and Alfred Must Die. The author's deep endearing love for his wife is both moving and inspiring.

Though this might sound a little corny - I felt I lived a little more because of reading this book."

Peter Mayle, author of A Year in Provence and other books including a series of crime novels, died on Thursday at a hospital near his home in Southern France.

Henry Holt's efforts to rush more copies of Fire and Fury to stores appears to have partly met demand for the book. According to NPD BookScan, which tracks 80% to 85% of print sales, Michael Wolff's tell-all book about the Trump White House sold 191,838 copies in its first full week on sale - the week ended January 14. This made it the biggest selling title of the week by a wide margin.

Despite this, Holt still has a long way to go to meet demand for the book which received 1.4 million orders last week.

Margaret Atwood, Junot Díaz, Lauren Graham John Irving, Bill T. Jones, Devon Kennard, Gayle King, Diane Lane, George R. R. Martin, Lesley Stahl and Many more will lend their voices to PBS' "The Great American Read."

The Great American Read, a new eight-part television competition and nationwide campaign created in partnership with the production company Nutopia, aims to explore the power of books and the joy of reading through the lens of America's 100 best-loved novels, as voted on by the public. PBS will also partner with top literary organizations and its nearly 350 member stations nationwide to extend the reach of The Great American Read to every community.

The Show will launch with a two-hour special event on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at 8 p.m. on PBS stations.

PEN America is honoring Stephen King with its Literary Service Award at its annual literary gala in New York City on May 22. The award is given to "a critically-acclaimed writer whose body of work helps us understand and interpret the human condition, engendering empathy and imagination in even the darkest hours."

PEN America has also named as its annual Publisher Honoree Carolyn Reidy, president and CEO of Simon & Schuster. The organization said that "under her leadership, Simon & Schuster has published many acclaimed and award-winning works of lasting cultural significance, has greatly expanded its publishing activities in international territories, and has been an industry leader in finding new audiences through digital capabilities.

Canadian author Margaret Atwood is facing a social media backlash after voicing concerns about the #MeToo movement and calling for due process in the case of a former university professor accused of sexual misconduct.

J.D. Vance, who gained national recognition for his 2016 book, "Hillbilly Elegy," is seriously considering running in Ohio's key senate race, an adviser to Vance told CNN on Wednesday. This comes after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke with Vance about his run, according to sources with knowledge of the call, offering the author advice on what he could expect from a potential bid.

While many have lamented the lost art of reading in our social media-driven world, few have actually tried to do anything about it. Short Édition is the exception. In 2011, the Grenoble, France-based startup began installing short story-dispensing vending machines in some of the country's most popular public spaces, beginning with Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport. And now they've made their way to America.

The New York Times offers inspiration to many authors, with a short article pointing out that crime novelist Sue Grafton (who died in late December) did not break into the bestseller lists until her sixth book, "F is For Fugitive" cracked the paperback bestseller list in 1990. After that she went from strength to strength with 10 of the books, starting with "L is For Lawless" debuting at No. 1.

Intense demand for Fire & Fury has caught its publisher, Henry Holt, off guard as the Macmillan imprint scrambles to get copies into the marketplace.

Gauging a book's traction in the marketplace and setting its print run is, arguably, one of the trickiest aspects of the publishing process. And Holt, in this instance, underestimated demand significantly.

Although Holt is reordering as fast as it can the worry is that it may lose sales because of the current unavailability of the book. Competition is also coming. Two other books are due to publish next week--David Cay Johnston's It's Even Worse Than You Think (Simon & Schuster) and David Frum's Trumpocracy (HarperCollins)--are set to hit stores on January 16.

The new year has already proven unpleasant for President Trump, who has been shaken by a forthcoming tell-all about his White House. Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the White House", which is slated to be released by Holt next week, has shot up the charts on Amazon and driven the President to take to Twitter with angry pronouncements about former members of his inner circle.
