Michigan's Governor, Educating Immigrant Teenagers, Tuscan Women Cook and the Diplomatic Mystery

Jennifer Granholm, Michigan's first female governor, was in office during tumultuous years. When she took office in 2003, massive deficits, a failing auto industry, and crumbling infrastructure burdened the state. In "A Governor's Story: The fight for Jobs and America's Economic Future," Jennifer Granholm recounts the challenges she faced during her eight years as governor. She is the host of Current TV's upcoming show "The War Room with Jennifer Granholm."

"The New Kids: Big Dreams and Brave Journeys at a High School for Immigrant Teens" is an intimate portrayal of teenagers attending International High School at Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, New York. The students, newly arrived in the US, have fled war-torn countries, walked across deserts, and may have had their education interrupted by years in refugee camps, or never went to school at all. Brook Hauser, the author of "The New Kids" chronicles these kids and the special school created just for them.

Bill and Patty Sutherland fell in love with Tuscany, and founded the Tuscan Women Cook program. Word spread like a good aioli and they've been featured on The Food Network, Jane Pauley's "My Generation" and recommended by Travel and Leisure Magazine and AA airlines, just to name a few.

William Shepard was a career diplomat in the American Foreign Service serving in Washington, DC and embassies in Singapore, Saigon, Budapest, Athens, and retiring as Consul General in Bordeaux. As a retired foreign service officer to reinvent himself after all the glitz, glamour, and a career of interesting diplomatic negotiations, he became an author.
He is the creator of a new genre, the diplomatic mystery, whose plots are set in American Embassies overseas. His books explore the rich, insider background into the world of high stakes diplomacy and government.
