*Fade to Black & White WAS $15.00

"Fade to Black & White" by Kris Abel-Helwig.

And a ghost I was. A pale version of my mother figuratively and literally, with none of her out-going personality or comfort in her own easy-to-tan skin. In high school she had embraced all aspects of the academic, athletic, and social scenes. Later her natural exuberance for life was intensified by battles waged for over a decade against the cancer than ultimately won their private war. And then she was gone. And all of the colors went with her. Making my high school experience more like watching a black and white movie of someone else's life. Feeling none of the happiness, fulfillment or really any emotional involvement at all... until that is, the day the son fell out of the sky... Contrary to Greek mythology, when Icarus flew too close to the sun, thereby melting the waxwings Daedalus had made for him, he did not plummet into the sea and drown. Rather, like the true, mythical hero he was, he performed a perfect landing, gracefully and beautifully to become on that eventful day, my next-door neighbor; Jason.

Along Iowa's Historic Highway 20 (Postcard History)

US Highway 20 was designated a federal highway in 1926. For the first half of the 20th century, it was the most important east-west road across northern Iowa, extending from the Mississippi to the Missouri River. The road connected 13 counties, four major metropolitan areas, and many smaller communities along its route. Fortunately, the historic two-lane road remains almost completely intact and can be driven much as travelers did in years gone by. Along Iowas Historic Highway 20 celebrates such a trip, illustrated by more than 200 antique postcards that show the personality of the road: town and city scenes, rural vistas, rivers, bridges, and historic sites. Not to be forgotten are the tourist courts, hotels, diners, and gas stations that made travel possible.

Ames: A Ride Through Town on the "Dinkey"

Images of America. Ames: A Ride Through Town on the "Dinkey" by Farwell T. Brown.

Ames had been referred to as a railroad town; more correctly the railroad established itself at the same moment that Iowa Agricultural College, now Iowa State University, was taking form. While the railroad helped to develop Ames, it was the college that drew people with names like Welch, Beardshear, "Tama Jim" Wilson, Charles F. Curtiss, and their successors. The flourishing academic community also drew families like the Loughrans and the Tildens, who were attracted by the positive town-gown relationship. In Ames: A Ride Through Town on the "Dinkey," readers will meet some of these people and tour historic Ames, as the narrow-gauge train nicknamed the "Dinkey" weaves its way through the city's history in over 220 vintage photographs. The images in this book, featuring people and landmarks both past and present, include Ames native J. Herman Banning, the first African-American aviator to be licensed in the U.S.; the dramatic 1922 burning and destruction of the Iowa State College Armory; a rare image of the 1895 Iowa State Football team, the first to be called the Cyclones; and finally, a downtown Ames' growth from dirt streets with wooden sidewalks to a modern college town. Author Farwell T. Brown is a lifelong resident of Ames. He was born in 1910, and is the grandson of two pioneer families. He inherited their stories while living many of his own.

Campustown by Anthony Capps

For more than one hundred years, Campustown has served the students and community of Iowa State University. The originally residential neighborhood west of Ames was born in the early 1900s, when the school compelled students to seek residence off campus. However, local government overlooked the neighborhood, and it fell behind the achievements of Big Ames. After the boom of the previous decade, community leaders organized a secession movement in 1916. It took nearly a quarter century, but the neighborhood finally connected to the grid of public utilities. Author Anthony Capps takes readers on a journey from Campustown’s roots, through its vibrant years in the 1960s to current projects breathing new life into the district.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts 1 & 2

(Special Rehearsal Edition Script): The Official Script Book of the Original West End Production

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
