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.

What would you do if you were imbued with superpowers?
This is the question posed to a group of high school students who are struck with the powers of telekinesis. This narrative interweaves the destiny of multiple teenagers and unravels the mystery of the object that granted them immortality. Clark, and his girlfriend, Sarah, naturally take to fighting crime when they form a group of superheroes. Other characters are more ambiguously motivated as they use their powers, not for the good of others, but solely to benefit themselves. They live comfortable lives until a mysterious stranger comes a’knocking. He knows their secret and will tell the world unless they pay up. And then there is the tragic fall of John, a young man with a heartbreaking back story whose lust for power and vengeance leads him on a downward spiral into madness.
“Ascension” is part one in an exciting and compelling new YA series that takes the superhero genre to new heights by asking how people truly respond to gaining unimaginable power. "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."

A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can.
Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.
But, those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire draining the blood from her fiancé Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs--not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.
As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning around to face them, Elle discovers that Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart.
