La extraordinaria historia de Reyna Grande—que comenzó en su exitosa autobiografía La distancia entre nosotros—continúa con su inspiradora travesía de buscar su lugar en los Estados Unidos como universitaria latina de primera generación y valientemente decidida a construir una nueva vida como escritora, una palabra a la vez. A los nueve años, Reyna Grande cruzó la frontera entre México y los Estados Unidos en busca de un hogar y de reunirse a toda costa con los padres que la dejaron atrás mientras perseguían una mejor vida en Los Ángeles. Pero lo que encontró al cruzar fue a una madre indiferente, un padre alcohólico y abusador, y un sistema escolar que menospreciaba sus raíces. Con muy pocos recursos a su disposición, Reyna se refugió en las palabras. Su amor por la lectura y la escritura la impulsó a salir adelante para lograr lo que parecía imposible: ser aceptada en la Universidad de California, recinto de Santa Cruz. Pero la experiencia universitaria real fue intimidante y desconocida para alguien como Reyna, quien tuvo que separarse nuevamente de su familia y de su círculo de apoyo. Se aferró a su deseo de ser escritora, pero pronto descubrió que desconocía de lo que se requiere para construir una carrera a partir de un sueño. A pesar de todo, Reyna pasa de ser una inmigrante indocumentada de escasos recursos a “una escritora valiente, inteligente y brillante” (Cheryl Strayed, autora de Wild) y finalista del premio National Book Critics Circle Award, que “habla por millones de inmigrantes cuyas voces no han sido escuchadas” (Sandra Cisneros, autora de La casa en Mango Street). Narrada con la prosa conmovedora y sincera que caracteriza a la autora, En búsqueda de un sueño muestra cómo, al atreverse a perseguir sus sueños, Reyna pudo construir lo que siempre había anhelado: un hogar duradero.

Dancing with Butterflies uses the alternating voices of four very different women whose lives interconnect through a common passion for their Mexican heritage and a dance company called Alegría. Yesenia, who founded Alegría with her husband, Eduardo, sabotages her own efforts to remain a vital, vibrant woman when she travels back and forth across the Mexican border for cheap plastic surgery. Elena, grief stricken by the death of her only child and the end of her marriage, finds herself falling dangerously in love with one of her underage students. Elena's sister, Adriana, wears the wounds of abandonment by a dys-functional family and becomes unable to discern love from abuse. Soledad, the sweet-tempered illegal immigrant who designs costumes for Alegría, finds herself stuck back in Mexico, where she returns to see her dying grandmother. Reyna Grande has brought these fictional characters so convincingly to life that readers will imagine they know them.

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful. At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

Read the definitive edition of Bilbo Baggins’ adventures in middle-earth in this classic bestseller behind this year’s biggest movie. The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar. Encounters with trolls, goblins, dwarves, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of Five Armies are just some of the adventures that befall Bilbo. Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children’s fiction. Written by Professor Tolkien for his own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when published.
