How notoriously private poet Mary Oliver once saved a depressed high school student’s life.

On this day in 1935, the highly acclaimed poet Mary Oliver was born in Maple Heights, Ohio. Oliver, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and later the National Book Award for Poetry in 1992, was by all accounts a private person who sought solace in the natural world. Throughout the course of her illustrious career, she rarely gave interviews and preferred that her work speak for itself. In a 2011 interview with Maria Shriver on behalf of O Magazine, Oliver reflected on her childhood and early-known ambition to become a poet. “It wasn’t that I wished I could be like everybody else,” she said. “I very much wished not to be noticed, and to be left alone, and I sort of succeeded.”

Video Premiere: Michael Compitello Performs Nina C. Young’s Heart.throb

Of all the things one might expect to find at a post apocalyptic dance club, a lonely snare drum probably isn’t the first thing to come to mind. And yet, in the Four/Ten Media video for Nina C. Young’s Heart.throb, Michael Compitello stands in a dark, barren room, awash in a faint yellow glow, coaxing deep industrial vibrations, reverberant scrapes, and hollow bursts of rat-a-tats from a single drum.

THE DEMISE OF OUR REPUBLIC

Please, in a time of peace, read and absorb the history behind the demolition of our once preeminent and beautiful land. You must read and think and reread to obtain the depth and significance of this beautiful piece. If your intentions are to scan—forget it.

Available In Store Now (while supplies last) A bold new novel about searching for order in a world that frames madness as truth from the widely acclaimed author of White Tears.

The Failed Promise: Reconstruction, Frederick Douglass, and the Impeachment of Andrew Johnson

Robert S. Levine (Author) When Andrew Johnson assumed the presidency after Abraham Lincoln's assassination, the country was on the precipice of radical change. Johnson, seemingly more progressive than Lincoln, looked like the ideal person to lead the country. He had already cast himself as a "Moses" for the Black community, and African Americans were optimistic that he would pursue aggressive federal policies for Black equality.

The man who lost Afghanistan

If there was one family in Afghanistan who incarnated the hopes, illusions and failures of the last two decades there, it was the Ghanis. Ashraf, the father, was the country’s last president. A trained anthropologist, he believed in books, and the power of the ideas within them to move the world. His wife, Rula, a student in Paris in 1968, said she believed in women. Mariam, their daughter, became a filmmaker — she believed in Art. Their son, Tarek, believed in his father. His two-decade career in American academia and philanthropy is an echo of Ashraf’s own cloudless trajectory through blue-chip universities, the World Bank and think tanks. It was a tribute.
