CLOSE READING: MAKING E-BOOKS BETTER CURRICULUM TOOLS
Our guests is John Williams, Follett Learning's Director of Digital Products.
Reading to learn has never been more important, and writing with skill and focus can open more doors than ever before. As for arithmetic, well we all know that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. But in order to move forward into a brave new world of digital learning, we cannot forget the past, and at its heart are books. Reading and gaining a deep understanding of what is read is not exactly where Facebook posts, Tweets and dramatic headlines are taking us, but the essential skills of reading are the same. And so is learning to read for deeper understanding—close reading is more important than ever to better prepare students for what they will encounter in life.
Curling up with a good book isn’t as simple as it used to be. You can take your text on an e-book, between beautiful hardcovers, or with a little author recorded audio on the side. So much industry activity influences our choices before we even open the Amazon box, enter the neighborhood store or touch the tablet screen. Reading, writing and the book business sparks cutting-edge conversation on The Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson. A push for digital sales has the literary crowd sorting through a maze of blockbuster titles, multi-media content and indie bloggers turned print authors. Industry insiders reveal how all of this impacts the African American market in general and black book sites like aalbc.com. Executive producer of the "Book Look" and I am Barack Obama author Charisse Carney-Nunes joins Marcela Landres, editorial consultant and author of the e-book How Editors Think: The Real Reason They Rejected You to weigh in on how industry changes affect their craft. Find out if the pen or key stroke, is still mightier than the almighty dollar.It’s time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.

Author D.D. Lanz joins me this week to talk about his novel: Going, Going, Gone: A Journey to the Hereafter and more.
About the book:
John Janne has a good life--a thriving law practice, a wonderful family. But when Janne is diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and given six months to live, everything changes. Stunned, John wonders about his course of action, particularly about how to tell his family--they'd been after him for years to quit smoking. Rather than putting his family through the agony of watching him die a painful death, he will take his own life.
But suicide presents problems--how to do it so that his family doesn't wonder what went wrong in his life and blame themselves for his death. No, it will need to seem an accident. He decides on a canoe trip in northern Minnesota's Boundary Waters where he will drown his diseased lungs.
Lanz's Going, Going, Gone is more than a novel about a man's plan to end his life. It is a philosophical walk through discoveries about death--and afterlife. The book would be of interest to atheist, agnostics, and Christians struggling with their faith.
For more information about D.D. Lanz and his book:
The desperate act of a young girl, on the cusp of womanhood, to lose herself in the mean streets and cabarets of 1930s Berlin, and years later, the disappearance of a key American general shortly before D-Day in 1944 are links in an ingenious plot to gain the secrets of the Allied invasion.
Through a series of traumatic events Reichsletter Martin Bormann, the man more than any other that truly ran the German government toward the end of World War II, sets in motion a deadly gambit that ricochets across half the world and gains Bormann possession of the Normandy invasion plans. In the double dealing, back stabbing chaos that was the Nazi inner circle, this climactic information is the currency that will buy Bormann the one thing that he has desired above all others: the right to be the next Fuhrer.
So unfolds the dynamic pages of Secret Betrayal. This novel is a testament to the redemptive power of love, the evolutionary power of kundalini yoga and the war within a war waged by Reichsletter Martin Bormann and Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler for the mind of and influence over Adolf Hitler.

Author Rob Sinclair joins me this week to talk about his novel: Dance WithThe Enemy and more.
Carl Logan was the perfect agent. A loner. No real friends or family. Trained to deal with any situation with cold efficiency, devoid of emotion.
But Logan isn’t the man he used to be, or the asset he once was. Five months ago his life changed forever when he was captured, tortured and left for dead by Youssef Selim, one of the world’s most violent terrorists.
When Selim mysteriously reappears in Paris, linked to the kidnapping of America’s Attorney General, Logan smells his chance for revenge.
Pursuing his man relentlessly, oblivious to the growing trail of destruction that he leaves in his wake, Logan delves increasingly deep into the web of lies and deceit surrounding the kidnapping.
Finally, he comes to learn just what it means to Dance with the Enemy.
