May 20, 2016
Bones, Bobby, 1980- author.
New York : Dey Street Books, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers, [2016]
xvii, 198 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 23 cm

Growing up poor in Mountain Pine, Arkansas, with a young, addicted mom, Bobby Estell fell in love with country music. Abandoned by his father at the age of five, Bobby saw the radio as his way out--a dream that came true in college when he went on air at the Henderson State University campus station broadcasting as Bobby Bones, while simultaneously starting The Bobby Bones Show at 105.9 KLAZ. Bobby's passions were pop, country music, and comedy, and he blended the three to become a tastemaker in the country music industry, heard by millions daily. Bobby broke the format of standard country radio, mixing country and pop with entertainment news and information, and has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Aldean. Yet despite the glamour, fame, and money, Bobby has never forgotten his roots, the mom and grandmother who raised him, the work ethic he embraced which saved him and encouraged him to explore the world, and the good values that shaped him. In this funny, poignant memoir told in Bobby's distinctive patter, he takes fans on a tour of his road to radio. Bobby doesn't shy away from the curves he continues to navigate, including his obsessive-compulsive disorder, on his journey to find the happiness of a healthy family.

Moran, Martin, 1959-
Boston, Massachusetts : Beacon Press, [2016]
221 pages ; 23 cm
"A moving and surprisingly funny memoir about finding the right balance between anger and compassion "Why aren't you angry?" people often asked Martin Moran after he told his story of how he came to forgive the man who sexually abused him as a boy. At first, the question annoyed him. Then, it began to haunt him. Why didn't he have more anger? Why had he never sought redress for the crime committed against him? Was he just plain frightened of his own hidden fury? Was he not man enough? And what exactly is rage anyway? What purpose does it serve in our lives? Moran did the only thing he could do to try to reconcile these seemingly irreconcilable questions: he began to set it all down. "--Provided by publisher.

"Diane Guerrero, the television actress from the megahit Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin, was just fourteen years old on the day her parents and brother were arrested and deported to Colombia while she was at school. Born in the U.S., Guerrero was able to remain in the country and continue her education, depending on the kindness of family friends who took her in and helped her build a life and a successful acting career for herself, without the support system of her family. In the Country We Love is a moving, heartbreaking story of one woman's extraordinary resilience in the face of the nightmarish struggles of undocumented residents in this country. There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US, many of whom have citizen children, whose lives here are just as precarious, and whose stories haven't been told. Written with Michelle Burford, this memoir is a tale of personal triumph that also casts a much-needed light on the fears that haunt the daily existence of families likes the author's and on a system that fails them over and over"-- Provided by publisher.
