Salmon Croquettes
Glodean Champion
Release Date: September 2, 2022

In 1965, The Circle, in Watts, Los Angeles, was a close-knit Black community, filled with its own particular joys and troubles. Set against the backdrop of racism and everyday police brutality, this vibrant neighborhood comes alive in Salmon Croquettes, as 12-year-old Zayla Lucille McKinney grapples with the confusion of feeling like a boy trapped in a girl's body. Is she what the other girls call her, a "bulldagger"? And what does that even mean?

In the midst of her transformation from tomboy to young woman, the community she loves explodes in a racial uprising. The Watts Riots teach Zayla the fragility of life and the importance of friendship. As the embers die down and the smoke clears, Zayla also learns something else - a family secret. Salmon Croquettes is a sensitive exploration of Zayla's transition from childhood incomprehension - why do adults expect children to magically understand what is acceptable and what isn't - to an acceptance of who she is and the truth of who her parents really are.

Emergencies of the Heart
Leslie McGraw
e Date: September 2, 2022

These poems, written between September 11, 2001 and Autumn 2013, are a collection of thoughts and dreams that rise out of the ashes of defeat and disappointment. This is not a book about 9-11 and death. This is a book about life, love, purpose, hope, and the valuation of time –all of which Leslie assessed differently since the events that occurred on 9-11. As the new towers have gone through the stages of the best and the brightest, to the lowest…to Ground Zero, and now back to an inspiring tower of freedom, Leslie is encouraged to move forward in love and stand tall in power with new hopes and expectations
