You Can't Buy Love Like That: Growing Up Gay in the Sixties (3 Copies)
Carol Anderson
She Writes Press
ISBN: 9781631523144

Carol Anderson grows up in a fundamentalist Christian home in the 60s, a time when being gay was in opposition to all social and religious mores and against the law in most states. Fearing the rejection of her parents, she hides the truth about her love orientation, creating emotional distance from them for years, as she desperately struggles to harness her powerful attractions to women while pursuing false efforts to be with men. 

The watershed point in Carol's journey comes when she returns to graduate school and discovers the feminist movement, which emboldens her sense of personal power and the freedom to love whom she chooses. But this sense of self-possession comes too late for honesty with her father. His unexpected death before she can tell him the truth brings the full cost of Carol's secret crashing in compelling her to come out to her mother before it is too late. Candid and poignant, You Can't Buy Love Like That reveals the complex invisible dynamics that arise for gay people who are forced to hide their true selves in order to survive?and celebrates the hard-won rewards of finding one?s courageous heart and achieving self-acceptance and self-love.

Winners: Emily DeFour, Hailey Joseph, Polly Johnson

Monsters in the Hallway (3 Copies)
Capt. Jim Kosmo
Beaver's Pond Press
ISBN: 9781592987214

In December 1949, life was nearly perfect for Jason Korsen--until voices told his father to kill the family. They escaped death but Jason's father, Peder, was sent to the insane asylum.

Jason struggles with bullies while his family struggles with poverty. Life couldn't get any worse. Or so they thought.

Ten years later, Jason's friend Roy Pettit is found molested and murdered after a Boy Scout meeting. A choir girl disappears that same night. The obvious suspect is Peder Korsen, who escaped from the asylum.

Everyone in town is ready to hang Peder--everyone except Jason and Detective Joe Stroud. One month away from retirement, Stroud is haunted by the case and challenged by extreme political pressure to charge Peder.

Jason knows he must prove his father's innocence, but how? Who would listen to a high school senior, the son of the main suspect?

And who would ever believe him if he named the real killer--a monster who has done more than just kill a Boy Scout?

Tooth is Stranger Than Fiction - 3 Book Set (1 copy)

2018 Final.jpg

I Swear To Tell the Tooth, The Whole Tooth, And Nothing But the Tooth
Dr. Carroll James
Ridge Publishing
ISBN: 978-0996791748    ISBN: 978-0996791700     ISBN: 978-0996791762

Dr. Carroll James’s wickedly funny and touching series spans his forty-plus years of dental practice, offering up a story for everyone.  

Publisher's Weekly's review states, “James’ episodic collection of adventures is wonderfully entertaining and offers delightful insight into one dentist’s irreverent mind. The author’s profession is only one of many sources of the comedy and drama in this rollicking journey through a life that embraces the unexpected.” 

You'll catch a glimpse into the worst hires in employment history, questionable family lineage, a hilarious first ski trip, amateur sheep herding, and a soggy camping trip sure to test any marriage.  Attending decidedly awkward dinner parties or hayseed weddings complete with karaoke and inebriated attendants, or risking life and limb to aid the impoverished world-wide (with near-drastic results of misspoken Spanish), as each story is genuinely original and unexpected. 

I Swear To Tell the Tooth, The Whole Tooth, And Nothing But the Tooth delights the bibliophile who is ready to live vicariously through Dr. James' adventures and antics! So Help Me, God will close the series in 2018. Author, Dr. Carroll James retired from dentistry after forty-one years in private practice.

Winner: John Hubbard
