Atlantis Rises Book
Chapter one: Baby on the doorstep.
It was one of those cold and dark winter nights of England when someone knocks on Dr. Peterson's door. He and his wife were deep asleep in their warm bed when he hears the knock. He wakes up and heads for the door. His wife wakes up as she felt him leave the bed.
Kate: "What is it, Honey?"
Daniel: "I heard someone knocking on the door; I'm going to see who it is."
Kate: "It's half past midnight, I wonder who that can be."
Daniel: "I'll go see."
Daniel goes, opens the door and freezes in his tracks out of terror. His wife follows him a couple of minutes later and freezes in her tracks also. What they saw was a very bright light in front of their house this light moved upwards to the skies and launched swiftly with the speed of light to somewhere very far. Kate and Daniel were so stupefied and they stood there in front of their house gazing at the empty cold night sky until they were snapped back to reality by a little baby's cry.
They looked down at the doorstep where they found a little baby wrapped in a blue blanket. Daniel picked him up and found some sort of plastic thing underneath the baby. He handed the baby to his wife and picked it up. It was a triangular shaped thing. He examined it carefully but found nothing. He, his wife, and the baby entered to the house and didn't say a word until half an hour later.
Daniel: "Am I dreaming?"
Kate: "I don't think so."
Daniel: "I am so confused."
Kate: "Me too."
Daniel: "I wonder what that thing is."
Kate: "Let me see it."
She puts the baby between them on the couch and Daniel stretched his hand to give her that thing. As soon as it got over the baby it floated in midair and shone brightly. Then, some sort of hologram appeared over it. In the hologram, a man and a woman who looked human were standing side by side. The woman spoke first and the man followed her later.
Woman: "Hello. We are Atlanteans and we are from Atlantis. We had a long journey to come here. We need your help as much as you need ours."
Man: "We hope that you could take care of our baby and you will be greatly rewarded later but tell no one about this or about us. This baby is a boy of light and he is in grave danger. We will explain later."
Woman: "We will be back to take him when the time comes but we left you the liberty to give him an Earth name. Thank you in advance and take care of our son. End transmission."
Kate: "We have no children yet. What a great time for a child."
Daniel: "What shall we call him?"
Kate: "I always liked the name Shawn. How about it?"
Daniel: "Then Shawn it is."
Daniel and Kate loved Shawn from the first look but they were still confused about what had happened that night. They decided not to tell Shawn anything about it until the right time. Since then, Daniel switched his interest from physics (he was a doctor in physics) to the study of UFOs, aliens, and the lost continent of Atlantis.
As soon as Daniel started his new study, he stumbled across some information about the Bermuda triangle and it's relation with Atlantis since they both had a common geographical area. Also, he noticed that many UFO appearances have occurred over this area. He also found some information concerning a psychic called Edgar Cayce who talked about Atlantis and it's relation with the Bermuda triangle. He said that machines from Atlantis are causing the disappearances. Cayce blamed the destruction of Atlantis on some sort of death ray misused by the Atlanteans. Daniel also noticed that it's been a long time since any disappearances have occurred.

The term "thought provoking" is over-used but that does describe eighth grader Melissa Shang's opinion piece in the New York Times in which she asks why "there are very few stories about kids in wheelchairs, and there are even fewer with a disabled person who is cheerful and happy." Her powerful article questions why "disability is always seen as a misfortune, and disabled characters are simply opportunities to demonstrate the kindness of the able-bodied protagonists."

For many years, the publishing industry's major annual event, BookExpo, was aimed at publishing insiders only. A few years ago, organizers ReedPOP, started experimenting with allowing in more readers, which morphed into a separate one-day event in 2014 called BookCon which immediately followed BookExpo. In 2015, BookCon moved to two days; then in 2016 back to one day.
This year, BookExpo's show floor was reduced from three days to two and BookCon's expanded back to two days. While engaging with fans is seen as positive by many in the publishing industry, the shows' continuing evolution is causing headaches for some, particularly the smaller, specialized publishers who wished to exhibit at BookExpo but not BookCon and thus found themselves relegated to a separate exhibit area at the Javits Center in New York.

Helen Dunmore has died aged 64 of cancer. She authored 12 novels, three books of short stories, numerous books for young adults and children and 11 collections of poetry.
She was also Chair of the Society of Authors until shortly before her death, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. She lived in Cliftonwood, Bristol the setting for her poignant last novel, Birdcage Walk (published in the UK earlier this year and due to publish in the US on August 1). Although she knew she was dying only at the editing stage she suggests, in an afterword, that she must have known subliminally because the novel was "full of a sharper light, rather as a landscape becomes brilliantly distinct in the last sunlight before a storm".
On Monday, the Nobel Foundation released Bob Dylan's lecture (which he gave just shy of the 6 month deadline in order to receive the award and cash prize of US$900,000. In his 27 minute speech, Dylan explored the topic that was on many people's minds when he was announced as the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, can song lyrics be literature?
"The speech is extraordinary and, as one might expect, eloquent," Sara Danius, the Swedish Academy's permanent secretary, wrote in a blog post. "Now that the Lecture has been delivered, the Dylan adventure is coming to a close."

America's libraries got a major boost this week on Capitol Hill as a group of leading publishing, information, software, and other businesses unveiled an organized effort to advocate for federal library funding. The move comes in response to the Trump administration's proposal to eliminate virtually all federal library funding, and the agency that distributes those funds to all 50 states.
