‘ŌPE‘A: spar

You have to understand the importance of Mau’s decision. The nature of his knowledge—it’s sacred. For him to go off the island to teach a group of people entirely unrelated to him—everybody on Satawal was kind of gasping, like, “Really?” He caught a lot of grief, but he told them: “You guys are blind. Don’t you see our knowledge base is dying on the vine? Nobody is learning navigation anymore, and these Hawaiians are hungry to learn. They’re going to sail.” So Mau came back to Hawaii to help with the navigation apprenticeships. We’d ask questions, of course, but until you sail that first day, you really know nothing. Mau’s awareness was so keen on every little thing that was going on. The wind, the swells, the squalls coming from miles away, the texture of the ocean’s surface. Then his response—”Okay, close the sails, change course.” It’s a sixth sense. In 1992, I was serving as an apprentice on a voyage that took us to Rarotonga. I had studied for two years with Nainoa, but on that voyage, I remember going to sleep under the stars one night and waking up an hour later with a feeling of déjà vu. The sky was as I had seen it in a dream. It was on that journey that I finally looked at the sea and sky and saw the pathway home.

RENAISSANCE OF POLYNESIAN CULTURE When we sailed Hōkūle’a to New Zealand and back in 1985, the native Maori just couldn’t believe it. They have an ancient voyaging history—and still know the name of the canoes, the navigators, the chiefs who first reached New Zealand. We made such a cultural connection, and today, they have their own canoes and a tremendous traditional voyaging community. We sailed to Rapa Nui—Easter Island—in 1999 and planted seeds. In two weeks, we have four people coming from Easter Island to Hawaii to train and learn. Nainoa has this vision of navigational schools all across the Pacific Islands. When I sailed to Satawal in 2007, five of us were honored by Mau and other islanders and pronounced pwo, navigators. Mau was set free to teach us. Today, Mau’s youngest son, Sesario, is a captain and teaches navigation with the university on Palau. We’ve been in this wonderful renaissance of Pacific Island and Hawaiian culture since the 1970s, and we’re only scratching the surface. The idea with Hōkūle’a is to learn our culture by practicing it, then to get out of the realm of practice and into the realm of living it. If we hadn’t found Mau, all those generations of wisdom would have been MANU IHU: lost. Had our crew only sailed to Tahiti and back, had Mau not agreed to teach bow endpiece us, how much would we really have learned? None of this would be taught in schools today. How can you measure Mau’s gift? You can’t. ĀKEA: star-

(Order Podicipediformes)

(Order Gaviiformes)

(Order Anseriformes: includes mallards, mergansers)

(Order Falconiformes: includes, bald eagles, osprey, kites)

Small, duck-like birds with lobed toes and long necks. Very strong divers. Have elaborate courtship rituals and often carry hatchlings on their backs.

Long necks, large bills. Graceful in flight, but awkward on land, these skilled divers spend much of their lives at sea.

In addition to freshwater species, some waterfowl are purely saltwater species. Mallards frequent coastal saltmarshes.

Marine birds of prey like osprey and bald eagles are wickedly capable airborne hunters. Spying fish beneath the water’s surface, they rely on keen eyesight, blinding speed, and sharp talons to pluck fish.

6. PELICANS

(Order Gruiformes: includes limpkin, rails, crakes)

(Order Pelecaniformes: includes herons, egrets, ibis) Members of this diverse order have long beaks and excellent hunting ability. Pelicans dive from great heights and catch fish in a massive throat pouch. Herons, egrets, and ibis stalk fish, crabs, and lizards in wetland areas.

The stately whooping crane can exceed 5 feet tall, and secretive clapper rails can drink seawater. The limpkin’s beak is specifically adapted to feed on only one species of Florida snail.

‘I think there’s a hunger for all the different lives,’ muses Katherine Bradford, who moved from Maine to New York in the late 1970s to work as an artist; ‘especially for the ones that were left out of the picture.’ Katherine’s work started as a study of the sky and horizons, of water and the sea, but she counts her inclusion of the figure as a powerful shift in her practice. Reflecting on the rise of figuration in art, she notes, ‘What’s

interesting is when I started putting people in my work, my audience got much much bigger. I think they saw an element of humanity in my work.’ There was an anxiety, as a self-taught artist, to take responsibility for the figure. ‘I didn’t dare put human beings in my work, because I’d never been to art school; I’d never done life drawing, all those foundation courses.’ But after working out her figurative style, she gave her work power. ‘The [established] art world was almost completely white males. What’s exciting is that all the other characters are beginning to parade into it, so there’s an increased interest in identity. I think people want to hear some personal stories, other voices, and I think if you put figures in your paintings, you’re able to tell these stories, maybe even more than if you did geometric abstraction.’

MANGO AND PEPPERCORNS A Memoir of Food, an Unlikely Family, and the American Dream • By Tung Nguyen, Katherine Manning, and Lyn Nguyen with Elisa Ung

Here is a powerful, recipe-filled memoir of resilience, friendship, family, and food—and the good that comes from embracing our differences—from the acclaimed chefs behind Hy Vong, an awardwinning Vietnamese restaurant in Miami. In 1975, after narrowly escaping the fall of Saigon, pregnant refugee and gifted cook Tung Nguyen ended up in the Miami home of Kathy Manning, a graduate student and waitress who was taking in displaced Vietnamese refugees. This serendipitous meeting evolved into a decades-long partnership that eventually turned strangers into family and a tiny, no-frills eatery into one of the most lauded restaurants in the country. Weaving between their alternating perspectives, Mango and Peppercorns tells Tung and Kathy’s improbable, quintessentially American story as they raise Tung’s daughter, Lyn, and open Hy Vong (“hope” in Vietnamese), SELECTED RECIPES:

Pumpkin Soup (Bí Đỏ) with Fried Shallots Curried Chicken and Sweet Potatoes Hearty Beef Noodle Soup (Bún Bò Huế) Fish with Mango Sauce

TUNG NGUYEN and KATHERINE MANNING cofounded Hy Vong, the award-winning restaurant in Miami, working as head chef and manager of front-of-house operations, respectively. They currently live in Miami. LYN NGUYEN is Tung Nguyen’s daughter. As a teenager, she helped wait tables at Hy Vong. She lives in Miami. ELISA UNG is an award-winning writer, book collaborator, and editor.

CASE STUDY HOUSE #22

The Stahl Family’s Modernist Dream Home By Kim Cross, Bruce Stahl, and Shari Stahl Gronwald

Case Study House #22, also known as the Stahl House after the family who built it, is considered one of the most iconic and recognizable examples of mid-century modern architecture in the world. Designed by architect Pierre Koenig and immortalized by photographer Julius Shulman, this glass-and-steel home built in 1960 in the Hollywood Hills has come to embody the idealism of a generation in search of the American dream and is revered internationally. Rarely told and lesser known is the inside story, here recounted from the Stahl family themselves, of the creation of this modernist gem. KIM CROSS is a writer and the author of the award-winning book What Stands in a Storm. BRUCE STAHL AND SHARI STAHL GRONWALD are siblings who grew up in Case Study House #22 and still own and care for the home to this day.

A RELATABLE QUEST FOR WELL-BEING REVEALS A DIVERSE ARRAY OF PHILOSOPHIES, LIFESTYLES, AND PRACTICES FOR BETTER LIVING.

DESTINATION WELLNESS Global Secrets for Better Living Wherever You Are By Annie Daly

True well-being isn’t hard to find. You just have to know where to look. Fed up with the commercialization of the wellness industry after working in it for years, journalist Annie Daly embarked on an inspiring adventure through some of the happiest and healthiest cities and villages to find out what we can learn from them. Annie combines on-the-ground reporting with personal narrative to share global lessons, philosophies, and customs from Jamaica, Norway, Hawaii, Japan, India, and Brazil. With candid photography, lesser-known history sidebars, and guidance on how to incorporate these self-care practices into your own lifestyle, this culturally-immersive read invites you to view the world through a different lens and decide what being well means to you.

TURN YOUR SENSITIVITY INTO A SUPERPOWER REGAIN CONFIDENCE AT WORK AND REACH YOUR FULL POTENTIAL WITH PROVEN STRATEGIES

“Trust Yourself is an exquisite roadmap written just for Sensitive Strivers looking to thrive in the workplace.” —Dr. Elaine Aron, bestselling author of The Highly Sensitive Person

Are you a Sensitive Striver? ✓Often feel “not good enough”? ✓ Take things too personally? ✓Judge yourself harshly? ✓Struggle with burnout and setting boundaries?

TRUST YOURSELF While being highly attuned to your emotions, environment, and the behavior of others can be the key to success, it can also lead to overthinking and burnout. Human behavior professor and executive coach Melody Wilding identifies this problem and gives this nuanced reader profile a name: “Sensitive Strivers.” Drawing on the latest research and her work with clients, she examines the intersection of sensitivity and achievement and the challenges that come along with it in the workplace, Trust Yourself offers neuroscience-based strategies readers can use to reclaim control of their lives and reach their full potential.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR AND VANITY FAIR CONTRIBUTOR JOHN CORNWELL’S RIVETING ACCOUNT OF THE HOPEFUL—AND CONTROVERSIAL—EFFORTS UNDERTAKEN BY POPE FRANCIS TO REBUILD THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

Francis altered what it means to be a pope; the papacy can never be the same again. He offered a renewed, more hopeful vision of what it means to be a Catholic Christian; the Church can never be the same again. That he has restored hope in the Church and in the world is the theme of this book. —from Church, Interrupted

PRAISE FOR CHURCH, INTERRUPTED

“The eminent Vaticanologist has traced the up-and-down fortunes of all our recent popes. Which means that he knows how many and how massive are the obstacles against Pope Francis. . . . But he is betting on him nonetheless.” — GARRY WILLS, New York Times bestselling author of What Jesus Meant

CHURCH, INTERRUPTED Havoc & Hope: The Tender Revolt of Pope Francis By John Cornwell

From respected scholar and New York Times bestselling author John Cornwell comes this rich examination of the life and legacy of Pope Francis, including his many efforts to disrupt the traditional Catholic Church so that it may rise again as a source of hope, guidance, and support. With exceptional insight, prescient analysis, and original reporting, Cornwell traces the ways in which the Church has fallen from esteem in recent years, facing near-irrevocable dissatisfaction. Cornwell argues that even though traditionalist powers and conservative media work against him at every turn, the Pope is instigating fresh ideas for stirring entrenched Catholic mindsets and is committed to creating a friendlier and more progressive, empathetic, and inviting place of sanctuary. Church, Interrupted is a seminal biography of the lasting influence of Pope Francis for a modern era of believers—and for generations to come.

THE END OF THE GOLDEN GATE Writers on Loving and (Sometimes) Leaving San Francisco • Introduction by Gary Kamiya

Each of the writers in this beautifully written collection of essays takes on every San Francisco resident’s eternal conflict: Should I stay or should I go? They chronicle the impact of the tech-industry invasion and the evolution, gentrification, and astronomical cost of living that have transformed San Francisco’s most beloved neighborhoods. They share stories of the lasting imprint of the 1960s counterculture movement, as well as the fight to preserve the art, music, and other creative endeavors that make this forever the city of love. This book will speak to anyone who is considering moving to or visiting San Francisco, wishing to relive the magic of the city, or experiencing the sadness of leaving the City by the Bay—and ultimately, to anyone who needs a reminder of why we stay.

It’s time for bed, but one little mouse just can’t get to sleep. It’s TOO QUIET!

As the symphony of nighttime sounds builds and builds in this rollicking cumulative read-aloud, the mouse starts to wonder whether he wouldn’t like a little MORE quiet. This silly, noisy bedtime book from the bestselling author of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site will have parents and children squealing, croaking, and laughing along—before settling themselves down for a quiet night’s sleep. SHERRI DUSKEY RINKER is the author of #1 New York Times bestsellers Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Steam Train, Dream Train. She loves cooking, gardening, and old oil paintings.

On the other side of a window, there is a neighbor. On the other side of a sadness, there is a hug. And on the other side of a storm, there is a rainbow.

THERE IS A RAINBOW By Theresa Trinder • Illustrated by Grant Snider

This hopeful, timely picture book shows that even when we’re far apart, “here” and “there” can still be connected by a rainbow. Sometimes we are separated by distance, sometimes by the way we feel. Even though the world is full of barriers that can make us feel unconnected, we are all just on one end of a rainbow. Connected by all that color and light, there is always something, or someone, waiting for us on the other side. Poetically told with an uplifting message for some of life’s most difficult moments, this book encourages us to look past our immediate surroundings and find comfort, community, and inner courage—all are closer than we might think. Inspired by the multitude of rainbows found in the windows of homes around the world following the COVID-19 lockdown, this uplifting picture book shares a message of hope and resilience that is truly timeless.

THERESA TRINDER spent a decade at Hallmark Cards, where she wrote and edited children’s books. She has also developed literacy curricula and holds an MFA in poetry. She was inspired to write this book by the rainbows her family made while sheltering in place in Greenlawn, New York, during the COVID-19 pandemic. GRANT SNIDER is an orthodontist by day, finding hidden hours to write, draw, and create cartoons and picture books, including What Color Is Night? and What Sound Is Morning? He hunts for rainbows in Wichita, Kansas, with his family.

PRAISE FOR WHAT CAN A CITIZEN DO?:

“Obligatory reading for future informed citizens.” —The New York Times

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A FLOWER? By Shawn Harris

In this deceptively simple, deeply profound story, one child experiences a flower with all five senses: from its color to its fragrance to the entire universe it evokes. With bold pops of fluorescent neon and the deeply luminous colors of the natural world, Have You Ever Seen a Flower? takes readers on a journey of new perspectives by redefining what it means to be a flower, what it means to be a human—what it means to be alive. Looking at a flower teaches us to look at everything around us, to expand our perspective, and to question how we see and are seen. A beautiful exploration of perception, the environment, and our humanity, this future classic is destined to be cherished for many generations to come. SHAWN HARRIS is an artist and musician who lives and works in Half Moon Bay, California. His first picture book, Her Right Foot, by Dave Eggers, was the recipient of seven starred reviews.

WE BECAME JAGUARS By Dave Eggers • Illustrated by Woodrow White

Revel in the breathtaking beauty of this transformative new book from the mind of bestselling author Dave Eggers. When Grandma comes to visit, the rules of the house (and the world) change as grandson and grandmother transform into jaguars together.

After a day of playing, running, and climbing through sumptuous landscapes, the ending will leave you wondering what’s real and what’s makebelieve. This depiction of unique family bonds will enchant anyone looking for something truly special to give to their loved one across generations. Children, parents, and grandparents alike will fall prey to this vivid celebration of imagination and the power of love to leave you forever altered.

CAVE DADA PICKY EATER By Brandon Reese

What is Cave Dada to do with his picky eater? It’s a peaceful prehistoric morning for Cave Dada and his Baba. But wait! Baba wants breakfast. And not just any breakfast. Baba wants an egg. Dada does not have an egg. Does Baba want something else? NO! Baba wants an egg! What’s a tired Dada to do? In this laugh-out-loud testament to Cave Dada’s mammoth-sized love for his picky eater, author-illustrator Brandon Reese returns to the prehistoric world of Cave Dada with a lovable tale of picky Babas, devoted Dadas, and accidental inventions that might change the course of history—or at least the course of breakfast. Packed with relatable Dada-approved humor, this playful Stone Age story is ideal for picky eaters and their parents. BRANDON REESE is the illustrator for numerous children’s books and, as a father, has ample experience in cooking breakfast for picky eaters.

Aesthetics is a branch of scholarship that explores what is beautiful, the sensory exploration of the world, and the nature of beauty.

Contemplation of beauty makes a strong impact on us. Beautiful things attract our gaze; we hold our breath, and are lost for words. We can even get teary-eyed because of beauty.

“What do you see?”

There is a Japanese belief that contemplating nature brings a person closer to grasping the principles of life and beauty. This is why in some Japanese buildings a window that has a nice view is often framed as a picture, and the landscape is perceived as an exquisite work of art in and of itself.

“In the painting there are four figures in multicolored clothes and shoes. They stand up straight against the background of an endless field behind which there is a narrow strip of water. To me it looks like the sea.”

I look for beauty

and find it even in the simplest things around me.

THE ELEPHANTS COME HOME A True Story of Seven Elephants, Two People, and One Extraordinary Friendship By Kim Tomsic • Illustrated by Hadley Hooper

One day in 1999, Lawrence Anthony and Françoise Malby hear that a herd of wild African elephants needs a new home. They welcome the herd to their wildlife sanctuary, Thula Thula, with open arms. But the elephants are much less sure they want to stay. How will Lawrence prove to them that they are safe and loved? What follows is a gorgeously illustrated real-life story of a friendship . . . and the miraculous way that love given freely will return—greater and more wonderful than it began. KIM TOMSIC is also the author of the nonfiction picture book Guitar Genius. Kim is the mother of two children and divides her time between Boulder, Colorado, and Scottsdale, Arizona. HADLEY HOOPER is an illustrator and painter. Her previous books include the award-winning The Iridescence of Birds: A Book About Henri Matisse and Mabel and Sam at Home. This is her eighth picture book. She lives in Denver, and elephants are her favorite animals.

NIA AND THE NEW FREE LIBRARY By Ian Lendler • Illustrated by Mark Pett

When the town’s old library is destroyed by a tornado, the people are left wondering what they should do with the space where the library used to be. The builder wants a new skyscraper. The grocer wants a new parking lot. Nia just wants a new library . . . but how can one person build a whole library? Ian Lendler and Mark Pett bring humor and heart to this clever twist on the classic “Stone Soup” folktale, in which one girl reminds an entire town of the joy of books, the power of community, and the way even the biggest things can start with almost nothing at all. IAN LENDLER is the author of several books for children. He lives near San Francisco, California. MARK PETT is the author and illustrator of several books for children in addition to being a cartoonist. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.

How do you share parents with a stranger? Maggie’s accustomed to leading her perfect life according to her own well-designed plans. But when Maggie learns she has a half brother her own age, any semblance of a plan is shattered. Tony’s mom struggles with addiction, and now she’s called upon Maggie’s dad—who’s also Tony’s dad—to take him in.

When you’re the middle kid, you’re never the first nor the last to do anything. Stuck between a bossy older brother and a naive younger sister, Middle Kid feels left out of two worlds. But even if—and maybe especially because—it’s always overlooked, this kid’s own world is just as big and important as that of his siblings. Gently funny and richly detailed, with hilarious, delightfully busy, highly emotional illustrations that capture all the highs and lows of tricky family feelings—and give readers lots to look at!—this graphic novel chapter book takes readers through a day in the life of a middle kid, and all the challenges and advantages of a life in-between.

Babysaurus can’t find his mother, so he and his prehistoric friends set off to look for her. Is his Mamasaurus the fastest in the jungle? No. Is she the best flyer? No! But when Babysaurus needs a little help, she is ready with a big hug. Stephan Lomp has created a fresh twist on a parental theme that will win the hearts of little ones and their mamas alike. Perfect for baby showers, Mother’s Day, or just because!

Babysaurus loves playing hide-and-seek with his Papasaurus. But one day, no matter where he looks, he can’t find him, so he and his prehistoric friends set off to look for him. Is his Papasaurus the strongest in the jungle? No. Does he have spikes on his back? No! Where can his Papasaurus be? Of course, Papasaurus has been right there all along, and when Babysaurus needs a little help, Papasaurus is ready with a big kiss and more games. Because for Babysaurus, his Papasaurus is the best in the world!

Babysaurus roamed through the leafy jungle until he met Tritopa.

“Does she have a long horn like my mama?” asked Tritopa.

“Have you seen my mama?” Babysaurus asked.
