    Slaves In The Family with Edward Ball

    in History

    Slaves in the Family with Edward Ball
    If you knew that you were a descendant of a slave- owner, would you tell anyone?
    If you had an opportunity to apologize to descendants of those enslaved by your family, would you?
     
    Edward Ball is a writer of narrative nonfiction and the author of five books, including The Inventor and the Tycoon (Doubleday, 2013), about the birth of moving pictures. The book tells the story of Edward Muybridge, the pioneering 19-century photographer (and admitted murderer), and Leland Stanford, the Western railroad baron, whose partnership, in California during the 1870s, gave rise to the visual media.
    Edward Ball’s first book, Slaves in the Family (1998), told the story of his family’s history as slave-owners in South Carolina, and of the families they once enslaved. Slaves in the Family won the National Book Award for nonfiction, was a New York Times bestseller, was translated into five languages, and was featured on Oprah.
    Edward Ball was born in Savannah, raised in Louisiana and South Carolina, and graduated from Brown University in 1982. He worked for ten years as freelance journalist in New York, writing about art and film, and becoming a columnist for The Village Voice.
    His other books, all nonfiction, include The Sweet Hell Inside (2001), the story of an African-American family that rose from the ashes of the Civil War to build lives in music and in art during the Jazz Age; Peninsula of Lies (2004), the story of English writer Gordon Hall, who underwent one of the first sex reassignments—in the South during the 1960s—creating an outrage; and The Genetic Strand, about the process of using DNA to investigate family history.
    Edward Ball lives in Connecticut and teaches at Yale University.

    WebbWeaver Books Proudly Presents: Author Edward Freeland

    in Books

    ADAPT:


      Ours is an age of unprecedented digital focus. None are safe from the invasive criminals hard at work in twisting innovation for their own predatory nature—not even Daniel O’Neal, a rural bus driver with easy dreams of living his life for old-fashioned love and purpose.


      Adapt is the engrossing debut novel from Edward Freeland which tackles the subject of the media’s overwhelming influence on the individual and on modern day society. Through his unnerving narrative, Freeland asserts the belief that one of mankind;’s primal instincts is collectivization; in this case, that of a group coming together to target one, weaker, individual and essentially evolving into a mob mentality. Adapt explores the real horror of ‘anonymous’ bullying which has become so prevalent in our digital society, especially that through social media. Freeland highlights the fragility of our personal security online, revealing just how simple it is to hack into a strangers private information through any of their personal electronic devices. Chilling and thought-provoking, Adapt will entertain and enlighten, leaving readers guessing at the truth until the very last page

    Edward Snowden is a hero?

    in Politics

    J. Neil Schulman suggests that Edward Snowden is a patriot in the tradition of the original American revolutionaries. Those who call him a traitor have no understanding or love for human rights or liberty.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 


    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
