- Diving Through Darkness by Kyle Maddux-Lawrence
At 26 years old, Matt Jackson lost the majority of his vision, and in turn his connection to his young son. Through the advice of a man known as the Shark Tooth Fairy, Matt uses black river scuba diving to find not only shark’s teeth, but also his sense of self.
- The Life of Bill Baggs by Patrick and Anne Longstreth
With keen intellect and sparkling wit, Bill Baggs seemed to be in the right place at the right time. From bombardier in World War II to reporter, then accidental diplomat, Baggs used his daily column as a bully pulpit for social justice and wielded his pen like a scalpel to reveal the truth. The Miami News earned three Pulitzer Prizes under his watch, and then in 1969, he left this world suddenly. Author Amy Paige Condon retraces his steps in the process of writing the first biography of this influential newspaper editor.
- Storefront: Statesboro Blues by Drew Hunt
Retired ATF Agent Lou Valoze takes you behind the scenes of an undercover operation and the consequences that followed.
