We are proud to announce that Churchill: Navigating bugs, belugas and polar
bears by Lori Henry is now available in e-bookstores.
After taking a 45-hour train ride from the southern Canadian city of Winnipeg
to the arctic town of Churchill, Manitoba, author Lori Henry was transported
from summer comfort to northern shock. She spent her first night getting
acclimatized at the local Legion Hall, where she met a group of characters who
would guide her through the next week and a half.
One of them, Lorne, offered to take her out the next day on the unofficial tour of the town, and it was here that she learned about the Polar Bear Jail, the domes where Japanese tourists go to try to get pregnant, and the beluga whales that "chirp" under the water as they gather nearby in the thousands. And
that was just the first day…

We’ve been dying to pop open the champagne in anticipation of our newest
e-book release, and we’re finally able to blast the cork off today: author Steve Bergsman’s newest book, Growing Up Levittown: In a Time of Conformity, Controversy and Cultural Crisis, has just been released on Amazon’s Kindle.
This is Steve’s fifth book (his first with us), coming off of four real estate books published by Wiley, and his most personal. Growing up in 50s and 60s Levittown, New York – one of the most successful and daring real estate developments in U.S. history – was supposed to be boring, spirit-crushing, and dull. In fact, the intellectuals of the day reviled the suburb and thought it would produce people who all looked and behaved the same.
Not so, as Steve writes about in Growing Up Levittown. In fact, he had quite the time during his adolescent years. :-) His hometown also produced songwriter Ellie Greenwich, singers Eddie Money and Billy Joel, Zippie The Pinhead cartoonist Bill Griffith, children’s book illustrator Jon Buller, radio host John Gambling, TV political commentator Bill O’Reilly, and Maureen Tucker and Sterling Morrison of the Velvet Underground (the house band for Andy Warhol’s factory).
Join Steve as he recounts his childhood growing up in what had to be one of the most looked-down-on places in America. And he turned out just fine, really…
