In the best tradition of storytelling, these timeless vignettes kick off a conversation, draw you in, and inspire follow-through on the important stories of today and tomorrow. Come travel through our natural world with a pilgrim from childhood, parenthood, and mellowing years, through landscapes of the mind as familiar to the author as the early city suburbs, mountains, and sea, where he was rooted and grew, to centre in on our place in today's world. As you read these reflections on Dublin and Ireland of the old century, you will also recognise your own place and time and wish to tell your story. Let your nature lead you in the telling, and your listeners carry forward ever more tales. A native of Dublin, Brendan Price is the founder of the Irish Seal Sanctuary. A marine biologist and wildlife advocate, the author was educated at University College Dublin. Brendan received a distinguished recommendation in the 2014 Hemingway Short Story Competition.

In the short period of time since Gloria Naylor published her first novel, The Women of Brewster Place (1982), to wide acclaim, she has established herself as a significant contemporary writer. A self-avowed feminist and black cultural nationalist, Naylor has produced a body of work that resists easy classification. Through the four novels she has published to date, which also include Linden Hills (1985), Mama Day (1988), and Bailey's Cafe (1992), she enters into a dialogue with a wide assortment of earlier writers, from Shakespeare and Dante to Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison. In Gloria Naylor: In Search of Sanctuary, Virginia C. Fowler offers the first full-length study devoted exclusively to Naylor's work. Fowler insightfully analyzes Naylor's four novels, specifically focusing on aspects of the texts that have been largely unexamined to date. She also provides a general examination of important aspects of Naylor's life, including the Jehovah's Witness religion, of which Naylor was a member until she was 25, and the emergence in the late 1960s and early 1970s of a new generation of black women writers and scholars. Fowler reveals the extent to which Naylor's artistic sensibility has been shaped by her experiences as a Jehovah's Witness and her strong identification with feminism. The volume also features a valuable bibliography, a chronology of Naylor's life, and the text of a lengthy interview with Naylor that the author conducted in 1993.

"Kirby's prose is exceptional.... Readers who enjoy spiritual literature will find this novel to their liking. It is also recommended for readers who enjoy human drama, historical fiction, and adventure." - Robin Edmunds, Foreword Clarion Review "In a world of scandalizing reality shows this book is a lyrical and uplifting story of redemption and faith. It is a breath of fresh air that is much needed in the literary world " - Carolyn Bracken Orr, Decatur Daily In the grimy, crime-ridden New York City of the 1890's, three lives are torn apart in a single, savage day. The events that unite them, for better and for worse, come together in a gripping tale of two continents that is ripe with danger and discovery. In Search of Sanctuary, Jamie E. Kirby's epic historical novel, charts the perilous journey of these three young souls, who must lose themselves in order to reinvent themselves. In evocative period detail, In Search of Sanctuary follows the young and earnest Aiden, the fearsome Mac, and the artistic Shamus as each seeks sanctuary from a vicious massacre on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Each one believes he or she is the sole survivor, yet their separate journeys are intertwined in ways that even an ocean cannot sever. Introspection and intriguing new friends and foes catapult these three into worlds they could never have imagined back in New York City. In Search of Sanctuary serves up a riveting parable that transports readers to another time, while mining ageless themes of faith, love, and moral fiber. Engaging, complex characters, a riveting plot, and a haunting similarity to three separate passages to peace provide readers with a message of hope embedded in a story seasoned with every conceivable human trait and behavior.

The accidental shooting of Kathryn Steinle in July of 2015 by an undocumented immigrant ignited a firestorm of controversy around sanctuary cities, which are municipalities where officials are prohibited from inquiring into the immigration status of residents. Some decline immigration detainer requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. While sanctuary cities have been in existence since the 1980s, the Steinle shooting and the presidency of Donald Trump have brought them renewed attention and raised a number of questions. How have these policies evolved since the 1980s and how has the media framed them? Do sanctuary policies "breed crime" as some have argued, or do they help to politically incorporate immigrant populations? What do Americans think about sanctuary cities, and have their attitudes changed in recent years? How are states addressing the conflict between sanctuary cities and the federal government? In one of the first comprehensive examinations of sanctuary cities, Loren Collingwood and Benjamin Gonzalez O'Brien show that sanctuary policies have no discernible effect on crime rates; rather, anti-sanctuary state laws may undercut communities' trust in law enforcement. Indeed, sanctuary policies do have the potential to better incorporate immigrant populations into the larger city, with both Latino police force representation and Latino voter turnout increasing as a result. Despite this, public opinion on sanctuary cities remains sharply divided and has become intensely partisanized. Looking at public opinion data, media coverage, and the evolution of sanctuary policies from the 1980s to 2010s, the authors show that conservatives have increasingly drawn on anecdotal evidence to link violent crime to the larger debate about undocumented immigration. This has, in turn, provided them an electoral advantage among conservative voters who often see undocumented immigrants as a threat and has led to a push for anti-sanctuary policies in conservative states that effectively preempt local initiatives aimed at immigrant incorporation. Ultimately, this book finds that sanctuary cities provide important protection for immigrants, helping them to become part of the social and political fabric of the United States, with no empirical support for the negative consequences conservatives and anti-immigrant activists so often claim.

One hundred years ago, a young doctor from Cleveland by the name of Robert Newcomb, travelled north to a place called Temagami. It was as far north as one could travel by any modern means. Beautiful beyond any simple expletive, the Temagami wilderness was a land rich in timber, clear-water lakes, fast flowing rivers, mystery and adventure. Newcomb befriended the local Aboriginals — the Deep Water People — and quickly discovered the best way to explore was by canoe. Bewitched by the spirit of an interior river named after the elusive brook trout, Majamagosibi, Newcomb had a remote cabin built overlooking one of her precipitous cataracts. The cabin remained unused for decades, save for a few passing canoeists; it changed ownership twice and slowly began to show its age. The author discovered the cabin while on a canoe trip in 1970. Like Newcomb, Hap Wilson was lured to Temagami in pursuit of adventure and personal sanctuary. That search for sanctuary took the author incredible distances by canoe and snowshoe, through near death experiences and Herculean challenges. Secretly building cabins, homesteading and working as a park ranger, Wilson finally became owner of The Cabin in 2000. Artist, author and adventurer, Hap Wilson is perhaps best known for his ecotourism/travel guidebooks. He has led over 300 wilderness expeditions in Canada, and served as actor Pierce Brosnan’s personal outdoor trainer for the feature film Grey Owl. "This is a complex and fascinating story, beautifully told. At first, it draws us in because the author appears to be living the life we all dream of-a simpler life, close to nature, free from the stress and strain of our consumer culture. But the reality, with its myriad challenges, is what holds our attention and gives the book its substance." — Judith Ruan, Muskoka Magazine

'A powerful memoir of love and loss, which are two sides of the same coin' - Julia Samuel, bestselling author of Grief Works and This Too Shall Pass 'A lyrical, deep, funny, eyes-wide-open, ultimately comforting book. I adored it, and - if you are searching for how to live in a broken world - so will you' - Lucy Kalanithi 'A book of rare power and grace... Reading this extraordinarily thoughtful writer and her luminous prose was, for me, sanctuary' - Will Schwalbe, New York Times bestselling author of The End of Your Life Book Club A searing memoir of a mother's love, the meaning of resilience and the possibilities of life after grief from the New York Times bestselling author of The Still Point of the Turning World. 'Congratulations on the resurrection of your life,' a colleague wrote to Emily Rapp Black when she announced the birth of her second child. The line made Emily pause. Her first child, Ronan, had died before he turned three years old from Tay-Sachs disease, an experience she wrote about in her first book, The Still Point of the Turning World. Since that time her life had changed utterly: she had left the marriage that fractured under the terrible weight of her son's illness, remarried the love of her life, had a flourishing career, and given birth to a healthy baby girl. But she rejected the idea that she was leaving her old life behind - that she had, in the manner of the mythical phoenix, risen from the ashes and been reborn into a new story, when she carried so much of her old story with her. More to the point, she wanted to carry it with her. Everyone she met told her she was resilient, strong, courageous in ways they didn't think they could be. But what did these words mean, really? Sanctuary is an attempt to unpack the various notions of resilience that we carry as a culture. Drawing on contemporary psychology, neurology, etymology, literature, art and self-help, Emily Rapp Black shows how we need a more complex understanding of this concept when applied to stories of loss and healing. Interwoven with lyrical, unforgettable personal vignettes from her life as a mother, wife, daughter, friend and teacher, Rapp Black creates a stunning tapestry that is full of wisdom and insight. 'Every once in a while, a book comes along that ushers us to the very center of a profound truth that we don't so much learn, as recognize. Emily Rapp takes us there in SANCTUARY' - Dani Shapiro, New York Times bestselling author of Inheritance 'An absolute marvel. As a writer, a mother, and woman, Black is a profound inspiration-not because she's fearless but because she's courageous. To understand the distinction, read this beautiful book.' -Bret Anthony Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of Remember Me Like This 'Not since When Breath Becomes Air has a memoir conveyed such profound loss, alongside such luminous and life-affirming love.'

Abbot Christopher Jamison, from BBC2's THE MONASTERY and new show THE SILENCE, suggests ways in which the teachings of St Benedict can be helpful in everyday life.

In FINDING SANCTUARY, Father Christopher Jamison offers practical wisdom from the monastic tradition on how to build sanctuary into your life. No matter how hard you work, being too busy is not inevitable. Silence and contemplation are not just for monks and nuns, they are natural parts of life. Yet to keep hold of this truth in the rush of modern living you need the support of other people and sensible advice from wise guides. By learning to listen in new ways, people's lives can change and the abbot offers some monastic steps that help this transition to a more spiritual life. In the face of many easy assumptions about the irrelevance of religion today, Father Christopher makes religion accessible for those in search of life's meaning and offers a vision of the world's religions working together as a unique source of hope for the 21st century.

As in all his books, Heckler draws from personal experience: training his horse, cultivating presence in aikido dojos, consulting with business executives, raising children. A masterful and encompassing book, Holding the Center develops from the fulcrum of the self in the natural world. Many of Heckler’s lessons arise from his life as a householder and father. Community is a larger family—we make alliances to “take care of what matters to us.” But, as Heckler teaches, that takes listening to others with an open heart, and learning what the needs of others are.The world can be a sanctuary, if we find a balance between instinct and choice. Richard Strozzi Heckler sounds an important call about the interplay between power and generosity in these subtle and luminous essays.
