What Katy Did

release date: May 09, 2017
What Katy Did
John Branston chronicles the short, incandescent life of his extraordinary daughter, Katy: a life of achievement, dramatic successes, lives touched, and ultimate defeat in her battle with depression. From a father's perspective, using messages from her friends and Katy's own words, he shows a brilliant life unfolding and closing abruptly at age 29. The warmth of friends' devotion and a father's pride give way to a desolation that chills the heart with a parent's worst fear. Branston narrates Katy's life and begins the rest of his own. --Dr. James Megar, Family Therapist.

Bath Then and Now

release date: Mar 01, 2013
Bath Then and Now
Bath is one of the most beautiful cities in England. Sleepy Georgian squares, flanked by long colonnades and dotted with green spaces, give the visitor or resident the feeling that nothing much has changed since Jane Austen herself walked the streets. This book, packed with full-color photography by professional photographer Dan Brown and containing rare archive views from the enormous Bath in Time collection, seeks to discover how much has really changed in the heart of the city. Some of these scenes will be familiar, but many more will surprise and delight the reader.

Rowdy Memphis

release date: Aug 01, 2004
Rowdy Memphis
On October 16, 1954, E. H. Crump, the political boss of Memphis and a force in Southern politics for nearly half a century, died at his home in Memphis. He left a place known as America's Cleanest City, America's Quietest City, the capital of Mississippi, and the safest city in the South. To Crump's critics, Memphis was also known as America's least democratic city. Crump's brand of order was already breaking down at the time of his death. That year the U.S. Supreme Court desegregated public schools in Brown v. Board of Education and Elvis Presley cut his first record at Sun Studio in Memphis. The next 50 years in Memphis would belong to the children and lawyers who fulfilled the promise of desegregation, rebels and gamblers, brawlers and killers, hard-nosed politicians and prosecutors, suburban and downtown developers, business visionaries, and the activists who stopped an interstate highway. This is their story.
