Simply the best book I’ve read this year. Marra’s writing is enticingly beautiful while writing about horrific events during the two Chechen wars. Young Hara, recently orphaned, is taken by her neighbor Akhmed to the only safe place he knows—the hospital. There he entrusts the girl to the surgeon Sonja, who is looking for her missing sister, another casualty of the war. Don’t be put off by the brutality of the subject; the beauty of the story comes through on every page of this magnificent debut.

Eric Mozilo presents and signs The Bug Inside
We are all good at something, and instead of investing our time and energy in “outsourcing” for inspiration or motivation, the time would be better spent investigating and exploring our own abilities and talents. Teach our children that it is up to them, and no one else, to achieve greatness.
Eric will be presenting The Bug Inside I, II, and III!

Have fun with Kiara and her classmates as they go on a field trip to learn a very important lesson. Children of all ages will enjoy learning the U Touch I Tell chant.
