1 POTATO 2 POTATO

Item Description

CYNTHIA DEFELICE, WILLIAM SMITH CLASS OF 1973

Mr. and Mrs. O’Grady are so poor they have just one of everything to share – one potato a day, one chair, one blanket full of holes, and one gold coin for a rainy day. After digging up the last potato in their patch, Mr. O’Grady comes upon a big black object. It’s a pot – no ordinary pot, for what they soon discover is that whatever goes into it comes out doubled! Suddenly the O’Gradys aren’t destitute anymore. But what they really long for is one friend apiece. Can the magic pot give them that?

Image For ABOUT A MOUNTAIN

ABOUT A MOUNTAIN

Item Description

JOHN D'AGATA, HOBART CLASS OF 1995

From “one of the most significant U.S. writers” (David Foster Wallace), an investigation of Yucca Mountain and human destruction in Las Vegas.

When John D’Agata helps his mother move to Las Vegas one summer, he begins to follow a story about the federal government’s plan to store high-level nuclear waste at a place called Yucca Mountain, a desert range near the city of Las Vegas. Bearing witness to the parade of scientific, cultural, and political facts that give shape to Yucca’s story, D’Agata keeps the six tenets of reporting in mind—Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How—arranging his own investigation around each vital question.

Yet as the contradictions inherent in Yucca’s story are revealed, D’Agata’s investigation turns inevitably personal. He finds himself investigating the death of a teenager who jumps off the tower of the Stratosphere Hotel, a boy whom D’Agata believes he spoke with before his suicide.

Here is the work of a penetrating thinker whose startling portrait of a mountain in the desert compels a reexamination of the future of human life.

ADDING WOOD TO THE FIRE

Item Description

KATHY FORD, WILLIAM SMITH CLASS OF 1980

With candid writing and over sixty pages of rich color illustrations, author Kathy Ford offers an inspiring account of how art and life come together to be seen. Part tale of artist finding voice, of quiltmaking proces, and of awakening, the heart of this book is a story of creative spirit. "Adding Wood to the Fire, A Quiltmaker's Way celebrates the creative spirit and puts into words what quilters know intuitively. Being committed to an artistic practice is a way of life and a metaphor for life. The book perfectly captures the connections between life choices and artistic choices. By artfully stitching together personal history with the making of quilts, the book illustrates how enriching and cathartic the creative process can be. Pushing boundaries, taking risks, letting go - all are themes that surface in both quilts and in life. By piecing together her life experiences and her quilts in this memoir, Kathy has given more meaning to both." - Donna Lamb Executive Director, Schweinfurth Art Center and Quilting by the Lake

AGAINST ALL ODDS

Item Description

DAN CONNELL, HOBART CLASS OF '66

Against All Odds is the firsthand account of Eritrea's epic 30-year struggle for independence and social justice. With almost no outside support, Eritrean nationalist brought successive U.S.- and Soviet-backed Ethiopian governments to their knees. At the same time, they worked to liberate women, workers and peasant farmers from centuries of grinding poverty, chronic hunger and numbing oppression. Connell argues that it was the blending of a social revolution with political objectives that enabled this uniquely self-reliant liberation front to weld Eritrea's fractious society -- half Christian, half Muslim, from nine ethnic groups m into one of the most remarkable fighting forces in modern history. In a new Afterword, he describes their efforts to translate wartime values and experience into sustainable strategies for developing the new country.
