♥ Book Title : #MeToo
☯ Full Synopsis : "#MeToo: Essays About How and Why This Happened, What It Means and How To Make Sure It Never Happens Again More than 16 million people had posted their #MeToo story and support against sexual harassment by mid-October as a reaction to Rose McGowan’s brave admission that she had allegedly been raped by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. A groundswell of reaction to and exposure of this sexual predation was unleashed that has spread throughout Europe and beyond. New revelations of unacceptable behavior in every industry break every day as people come forward in response to the viral #MeToo posts. Protests are scheduled such as the “Take back the Workplace” Hollywood march in November of 2017, and legislation is being drafted in New York and California to finally change the way things have been for far too long. This is the turning point. Things are going to change. This is a historic moment and it needs to be memorialized, passed around and passed on. Although social media is a fantastic means of igniting a fire, it needs to keep burning, like a torch. So Riverdale Avenue Books, a woman-owned leading hybrid publisher, is putting its money, words and power, behind this and publishing this collection of 26 essays from people who understand want to make this change, and we, as a society, have got to figure out a way to drive that change forward. So pass this book around. Share it with your sons, brothers, fathers, your daughters, sisters and mothers, your co-workers and friends. Read passages to them, if they won’t read it for themselves. Leave it on the desk of someone who should know better. Help us make this movement more than a hashtag."Article| Lori Perkins| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Little #metoo Book for Men
☯ Full Synopsis : "In just seventy-five brief pages, Good Men Project Senior Editor Mark Greene exposes the brutal price that man box culture extracts from men and women world wide. The Little #MeToo Book for Men is a concise, no holds barred call to action, inviting men to step out of silence and isolation and into the battle for a better future. From the introduction: For millions of men, manhood can seem like a foregone conclusion, mapped out for us by universally understood rules for being a 'real man.' These rules determine how we walk, how we talk, what we think and do, what we view as our responsibilities and most importantly, how we pursue or fail to pursue our deepest needs, wants and desires. These rules of manhood become so central to what we believe as to render the distinction between ourselves and our culture of manhood invisible to us. When millions of men live our lives subject to the rules of a culture we are not fully conscious of, it can be damaging for our families, our communities, our collective quality of life, and even our longevity. The Little #MeToo Book for Men seeks to encourage a conversation about how boys and men arrive at what we believe." If this conversation can reveal even the slightest glimmer of daylight between our dominant culture of masculinity and our own daily choices as men, my hope is we will find, in that space, a more vibrant and authentic connection to our agency, our power and our humanity. Mark Greene's articles on fatherhood, men and emotional expression have received over half a million social media shares and twenty million page views. Greene writes and speaks on men's issues for the Good Men Project, the Shriver Report, the New York Times, Salon, the BBC and the Huffington Post. Follow him on Twitter @RemakingManhood "This isn't just a book, it's a thunderbolt! A powerful call to end men's silence on sexual assault."-Lisa Hickey, CEO, The Good Men Project "With deep compassion for men, Greene calls out to our better selves."-Michael Kasdan "Mark Greene has written a timely, compelling book that connects two seemingly disparate issues, the widespread silence about & cultural acceptance of sexual assault against women, and the emotional assault against men that begins when they are boys. We cannot cure one without treating the other." - Lisa Duggan"Article| Mark Greene| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff
☯ Full Synopsis : "“It seems wrong to say that so dystopian a novel is great fun to read, but it’s true. I suspect that Thomas Pynchon and Hunter S. Thompson would love this book.” —Salman Rushdie From legendary actor and activist Sean Penn comes a scorching, darkly funny novel about Bob Honey—a modern American man, entrepreneur, and part-time assassin. Bob Honey has a hard time connecting with other people, especially since his divorce. He’s tired of being marketed to every moment, sick of a world where even an orgasm isn’t real until it is turned into a tweet. A paragon of old-fashioned American entrepreneurship, Bob sells septic tanks to Jehovah’s Witnesses and arranges pyrotechnic displays for foreign dictators. He’s also a contract killer for an off-the-books program run by a branch of US intelligence that targets the elderly, the infirm, and others who drain this consumption-driven society of its resources. When a nosy journalist starts asking questions, Bob can’t decide if it’s a chance to form some sort of new friendship or the beginning of the end for him. With treason on everyone’s lips, terrorism in everyone’s sights, and American political life sinking to ever-lower standards, Bob decides it’s time to make a change—if he doesn’t get killed by his mysterious controllers or exposed in the rapacious media first. A thunderbolt of provocative words and startling images, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff marks the fiction debut of one of America’s most acclaimed artists."Article| Sean Penn| Statement ..."

His teen-aged son, Peter, has fallen in love with Silvia, who is visiting from the big city. While Saul is overburdened by demands of his medical practice, Germany quickly defeats Yugoslavia in April, 1941, creates a fascist puppet state of Croatia, and brings escalating havoc to the local Jewish population. A county clerk whose wife Saul had treated warns Saul about impending deportation and under false pretext issues travel permits for Saul's family to go to Zagreb. There, Saul pays dearly for his family to be smuggled into Italy, where they are sent into confinement in a northern province. There they also meet other refugees: The beautiful Stella despairs about her fiance; an old man tries to console his wife with incredible salvation stories about their deported son; and Olga, a married woman, moves in with her lover. Meanwhile, Saul's wife Clara struggles with food shortages and Peter is conflicted about his feelings for Marisa, who reminds him of Silvia. Then in 1943 the Allies land in southern Italy.

♥ Book Title : Love, Me Too
☯ Full Synopsis : "Recently the #MeToo movement has spurred a great cultural shift in the conversation about sexual abuse; however, Leta Greene believes there is still a missing piece in this topic, one that shows how to move from only surviving to thriving. Once a scared little girl, victimized by years of abuse, secrets, and lies that took a toll on her mentally, physically, and spiritually, Leta found a way to leave the darkness and has created a life of freedom, light and happiness. She breaks her healing into three phases: 1) The Victim, 2) The Survivor, and 3) The Advocate. It is only in this final phase that survivors of abuse, and society as a whole, can move from the pulsating anger into protectors and defenders of those in need. Leta found the path of healing, and after years of self-work, she shares her tools to happiness for the victim, for those impacted, and for society."Article| Leta Greene| Statement ..."
