Where Do You Stay

Where Do You Stay

Jerome is staying with his Aunt Geneva and her family, now that his mother has passed away. Aunt Geneva does her best to make Jerome feel welcome, but it just doesn't feel like home. He misses his mother, he misses his piano, and his cousins make it clear they're not happy about the new living arrangements. Then Jerome meets Mr. Willie, who lives in a ramshackle carriage house nearby. Mr. Willie isn't like other people in Jerome's life: he doesn't ask a lot of questions; he just listens. He played the piano as a boy, just like Jerome. Maybe Jerome can find a home again with Mr. Willie. But when the carriage house is slated for demolition, Mr. Willie disappears. Jerome wonders where his friend will stay, and whether he will ever find a place to call home in this Society of School Librarians International Honor Book.

When Home Won T Let You Stay

When Home Won T Let You Stay

Insightful and interdisciplinary, this book considers the movement of people around the world and how contemporary artists contribute to our understanding of it In this timely volume, artists and thinkers join in conversation around the topic of global migration, examining both its cultural impact and the culture of migration itself. Individual voices shed light on the societal transformations related to migration and its representation in 21st-century art, offering diverse points of entry into this massive phenomenon and its many manifestations. The featured artworks range from painting, sculpture, and photography to installation, video, and sound art, and their makers--including Isaac Julien, Richard Mosse, Reena Saini Kallat, Yinka Shonibare MBE, and Do Ho Suh, among many others--hail from around the world. Texts by experts in political science, Latin American studies, and human rights, as well as contemporary art, expand upon the political, economic, and social contexts of migration and its representation. The book also includes three conversations in which artists discuss the complexity of making work about migration. Amid worldwide tensions surrounding refugee crises and border security, this publication provides a nuanced interpretation of the current cultural moment. Intertwining themes of memory, home, activism, and more, When Home Won't Let You Stay meditates on how art both shapes and is shaped by the public discourse on migration.

Should You Stay Or Should You Go

Should You Stay Or Should You Go

Are you struggling in a difficult marriage and trying to decide what steps to take next? Be honest with yourself about your situation and choose to either repair or leave the marriage—and ensure that God is involved in your decision-making process. Written with the hope of helping others, Should You Stay or Should You Go shares the inspirational personal story of Kirk and Deborah Taylor, who know that God has blessed their marriage together as they walk in His guidance of what He has designed marriage to be. They talk about their childhood experiences and how these experiences shaped them to be who they are as adults. Both were in difficult long-term marriages. They describe their struggles with being Christians and thinking God’s displeasure would certainly be upon them if they divorced. They stayed in their marriages and tried to repair their relationships. But eventually both decided to divorce after realizing their marriages weren’t refining them but damaging them. This personal narrative and faith-inspired guide tells the story of two people who dealt with long-term marriages that ended in divorce—and who later found each other with God’s help, and now have a fulfilling and loving second marriage.
