Bark’s Best Books: The Who and Why of Dogs

The Bark’s Best Books: In What the Dog Knows, Cat Warren explores the science and wonder of working dogs, guided by Solo, her German Shepherd.

This book offers new ways to learn about the cognitive and emotional lives of one’s own dogs, and is highly recommended.

Our team climbed Everest to try to solve its greatest mystery

Mark Synnott's gripping account of climbing Everest to try to find the lost body of Sandy Irvine, purportedly the first westerner to summit the mountain -- and wonderful teaser to next year's book, THE THIRD POLE, as well as the recent National Geographic film about the climb, directed by Renan Ozturk.

Were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay really the first to summit the world’s highest peak? We searched for a camera that could rewrite history.

The equal value of a human life is a not debatable fact, and fighting for the right to live, and the right to live equally, is not a debatable action. Period. We stand with #BlackLivesMatter and those seeking justice for the victims of outrageous police brutality—George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Botham Jean, Tamir Rice, Bettie Jones, Eric Gardner, Philando Castile, Miriam Carey, to name just a few of the many people who would be alive today if not for over-militarized policing, systemic injustice, and the plague of racism that has infected and festered this country since its inception.

We've been turning to the following to direct our resources to help support meaningful social justice reform and to continue to educate ourselves:

12 Great Summer Reads for 2019

AARP picks Sarah Valentine's WHEN I WAS WHITE as a top book for the summer! "Escape with 12 of the season's hottest page-turners: When I Was White: A Memoir. Valentine grew up in Pittsburgh in the 1960s and ‘70s, unaware that her father was African American. She writes frankly about how learning this fact as an adult turned her entire perception of herself upside down, as well as her view of race in America. She questions why her family and others felt the need to hide the truth and wrestles with her insecurities about whether she can ever be “authentically black.”

Nora Roberts and Anthony Horowitz are just a few of the authors with new books you should add to your summer reading list.

MJ for Texas

I had a great time speaking on NBC's Megyn Kelly TODAY about my experiences overcoming obstacles to achieve my dream of becoming a pilot, serving as a Medevac helicopter pilot in Afghanistan, and my role fighting to end the ban on women serving in ground combat roles in the military.

I have a proven track record of fighting for others, which is why I'm determined to continue serving my country and our community, this time, by running to represent my home district in Congress.

Another brilliant review for Elizabeth Tan's RUBIK!

Another brilliant review for Elizabeth Tan's RUBIK!

"Tan's debut novel is both a love letter to fandom and a sustained meditation on alienation, artificiality, and the sinister nature of capitalism. In this novel of interconnected narratives that mimics the shifting planes of a Rubik's Cube, characters appear and reappear in stories that pastiche various genres, from anime and video games to sci-fi thrillers and fan fiction."

Now that is a review! Thank you, Kirkus Reviews. Support exciting international literature and order Rubik by Australian author Elizabeth Tan at your local bookstore.

YES! The first review for 'Rubik' by Elizabeth Tan is in and it's a rave from Publishers Weekly!

"The disorienting effect of accreting, repeating details and unanswered questions makes the final cohesion of Tan’s only slightly fantastical Perth even more delicious. Tan’s careful layering and nuanced craft will gain a strong following among fans of experimental narratives." MacKenzie Wolf Publishers Group West
