SORT BY Relevancy
Only a family knows the unvarnished truth about someone. Everyday, face-to-face interactions can reveal character more effectively than anything else. Al Capone's brother, Ralph Capone, knew this – and that's why he begged his granddaughter Deirdre Marie Capone not to publish the Capone family secrets until she was the last living member of the family. Uncle Al Capone, The Untold Story from Inside His Family is the result, revealing for the first time many startling facts about one of the most famous gangsters of the twentieth century. In one hard-hitting chapter after another, Capone examines her great-uncle's involvement in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, the real reason he went to Alcatraz, ethnic prejudice in the early twentieth century, and much more. She offers compelling evidence that Al Capone was specifically targeted for prosecution by law enforcement agencies with the collaboration of the media, which made gross exaggerations of her uncle's exploits and fueled a phenomenon of half-truths and utter falsehoods. From the family's roots in Angri, Italy to the author's ongoing investigations today, this debut offers a comprehensive and moving portrait of an iconic American family and one woman's efforts to make peace with the past. http://www.unclealcapone.com
The Total Tutor will interview Deirdre Capone. “I am a Capone.” So begins Deirdre Marie Capone’s recently published account of her life, family, and relationship with one of America’s most notorious gangsters. In the past, this admission of identity did not come easy to Deirdre, who was discriminated against simply because of her last name. Now she writes to share little-known stories about the family who raised her and kept Chicago stocked with liquor during the Prohibition. Over time, the Capone family has become ensconced by myth and legend, but Deirdre alone knows truly intimate details. As the only surviving Capone member who has first-hand accounts of interactions with her notorious family members, she seeks to clear up rumors and allegations that have accumulated over the past eighty years. The world knows Al Capone as a criminal that flaunted his lawbreaking, but only Deirdre knows how compassionate and loving her “Uncle Al” could be. Next, The Total Tutor will interview Mia Toschi: Award -Winning TV Reporter, Contributing Writer and Photographer for “Surviving Sandy“ WHAT: Hurricane Sandy was a devastating and deadly hurricane that left tens of thousands of people homeless. 15 months later, and many uninsured and under insured survivors have still not been able to rebuild. TV Reporter Mia Toschi is a Contributing Writer and Photographer of “Surviving Sandy” – a 300-page book detailing the historic storm while also highlighting the heroes and rebuilding. 100% of the proceeds are being donated to charities. So far – five charities have been received significant donations. Mia Toschi is now reaching out to corporations so libraries and schools can each receive this piece of history and to empower them that they are survivors. To learn more about her efforts and how you can get involved, check out her amazing book, Surviving Sandy.
Amp Capone came up out a very rough part of houston called (Sunnyside 4000 Blk) where it's everything but sunny. He came fresh out the gutter ,the projects some would say. He was expected to be dead or in jail for life before even reaching his 20's. Just another product of his environment to some, but to others he's the voice of the streets with a interesting story to share with the world. He over came many obstacles,trials and tribulations at such an early age. He was shot five times and is currently in a wheelchair and still grinding it out and sharpening his craft. His unique style an sense of humor with words makes him stand out amongst the rarest rappers. Hes one of H Town's best kept secrets. A rare diamond in the dirt that will get Its Time 2 Shine ..(My Voice Not In A Wheelchair He Says.. So Why Stop Rapping Cause I'm In One Now!!

Wednesday, November 19, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds is taking a provocative, IMPROPER look at the fight for women’s rights with the award-winning author of THE SCARLET SISTERS Myra MacPherson and with journalist Jonathan Eig author of THE BIRTH OF THE PILL.
In this, her fifth book THE SCARLET SISTERS: SEX SUFFRAGE AND SCANDAL IN THE GILDED AGE, award-winning and bestselling author Myra MacPherson returns to the compelling issues of women’s rights addressed in her first book THE POWER LOVERS: THE EFFECT OF POLITICS ON POLITICAL FAMILIES. From history and intrigue to sex and money, MacPherson takes the reader on a jaunty, fun, informative ride through the real-life saga of the sisters Victoria Woodhull and Tennie Claflin, whose radical views threatened the white male power structure of the nineteenth century and shocked the world.
Jonathan Eig is a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, Chicago magazine, The Dallas Morning News, and the New Orleans Times-Picayune. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, Esquire, and The Washington Post. He has appeared on NBC’s Today Show, NPR, and in the Prohibition documentary made by Ken Burns for PBS. He is the bestselling author of LUCKIEST MAN, OPENING DAY, and GET CAPONE. In his latest book, THE BIRTH OF THE PILL, HOW FOUR CRUSADERS REINVENTED SEX AND LAUNCHED A REVOLUTION, he takes a, yes, sexy look at one of the most important inventions of the twentieth century and how it changed everyone’s lives forever.
My guests will be joining me at the Miami Book Fair International November 16-23 at Miami Dade College in downtown Miami.

A Note From the author Elizabeth Clare Prophet:
Approaching the Garden
"Everyone yearns for deep and lasting joy. If you look around, though, you see that while some people emanate joy, others wear sullen faces and still others make merry and laugh but seem to lack real joy.
The key to joy is simple. There is ony one source of real joy, and it is within you. True joy comes from your inner reality".....
Join Harmonious Vibrations for the next six weeks as we share more thoughts about joy from the pocket handbook, from the series Gardens of the Heart, entitled JOY by Elizabeth Clare Prophet.
