A Testimony of an Overcomer There are few things more devastating to a child´s fragile self-esteem than being humiliated before classmates and called a ´´dummy´´ by friends, teachers, and even family members. But millions of bright, sensitive, learning disabled children live this nightmare everyday - clinging to the hope that one day, they might achieve their life goals. Everyone has a turning point in their life. For me, it came through a newly discovered faith in God and one special teacher who helped me to realize that I had strength to overcome incredible odds including: A dysfunctional family environment A paralyzing learning disability Severe stuttering Once encouraged and made to feel important, my natural abilities blossomed, and I progressed from being unable to read aloud, to becoming an honor student and winning speech tournaments. ´´Our students were impressed with your sincerity and got a sense that you care about them as people. As a speaker, you are one of the best of the 450 we have had. You made them aware of the plight experienced by the underdog in our classroom. Hopefully, they will extend a helping hand rather than a taunt to the kid who doesn´t fit into the mainstream.... We all learned a most powerful lesson in the resiliency of the human spirit.´´ - Larry Crawford, High School Principal Lordstown, Ohio. Today, Lonnie J. Clinkscale, MBA, is an accomplished speaker, author, and licensed minister. His life story has been written about in the American Academy of Pediatric Medicine. He has been a guest on the 700 Club, Trinity Broadcasting Network, National Empowerment TV, KET Public Broadcasting, World, a national publication for learning disabilities, and CBS sharing his testimony message of hope. He and his wife, Dawn, live in Louisville, Kentucky. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marcel Williams. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/054906/bk_acx0_054906_sample.mp3.

Boldly combining the highly personal with the brilliantly scholarly, In the Dark Room explores the question of how memory works emotionally and culturally. It is narrated through the prism of the author?s experience of losing both his parents, his mother when he was sixteen, his father when he was on the cusp of adulthood and of trying, after a breakdown some years later, to piece things together. Drawing on the lessons of centuries of literature, philosophy and visual art, Dillon interprets the relics of his parents and of his childhood in a singularly original and arresting piece of writing reissued for the first time since its original publication in 2005, and including a new foreword from prize-winning biographer Frances Wilson. ?In the Dark Room is a wonderfully controlled yet passionate meditation on memory and the things of the past, those that are lost and those, fewer, that remain: on what, in a late work, Beckett beautifully reduced to ?time and grief and self, so-called?. Retracing his steps through his own life and the lives of the family in the midst of which he grew up, Brian Dillon takes for guides some of the great connoisseurs of melancholy, from St Augustine to W. G. Sebald, by way of Sir Thomas Browne and Marcel Proust and Walter Benjamin. The result is a deeply moving testament, free of sentimentality and evasion, to life´s intricacies and the pleasures and the inevitable pains they entail. In defiance of so much that is ephemeral, this is a book that will live.? ? John Banville, winner of the Booker Prize for The Sea in 2005.
It´s been nearly a century since Marcel Duchamp exhibited a urinal and called it art. Since then painting has been declared dead several times over, and contemporary art has now expanded to include just about any object, action, or event: dance routines, slideshows, functional hair salons, seemingly random accretions of waste. In the meantime being an artist has gone from a join-the-circus fantasy to a plausible vocation for scores of young people in America. But why - and how and by whom - does all this art get made? How is it evaluated? And for what, if anything, will today´s artists be remembered? In The Contemporaries, Roger White, himself a young painter, serves as our spirited, skeptical guide through this diffuse, creative world. White takes us into the halls of the RISD graduate program, where students learn critical lessons that go far beyond how to apply paint to canvases. In New York we meet the neophytes who assist established artists - and who walk the fine line between ´´assistance´´ and ´´making the art´´. In Milwaukee White trails a group of friends trying to create a viable scene where rent is cheap but where the spotlight rarely shines. And he gives us an intimate perspective on three wildly different careers: that of Dana Schutz, an emerging star who is revitalizing painting; that of Mary Walling Blackburn, whose challenging art defies market forces; and that of Stephen Kaltenbach, a ´70s wunderkind who is back on the critical radar, perhaps in spite of his own willful obscurity. From young artists trying to elbow their way in to those working hard at dropping out, White´s essential audiobook offers a once-in-a-generation glimpse of the inner workings of the American art world at a moment of unparalleled ambition, uncertainty, and creative exuberance. 1.
