Until one night, when walking alone through the brambles barefoot and in her nightgown, she encounters Abel Brown, a mysterious drifteR. Brown has been wandering around town, looking for houses to fix and, rumor has it, widows to talk to. Brown is nothing but a drifter, but despite their obvious differences, Eleanor and Abel find themselves drawn to each other. This beautiful new romance shows that connection can be found in the unlikeliest of places and in the unlikeliest of ways.

Pre-Columbian flutes, multilingual vocalists, powerful drummers and a wide range of bass and guitar styles tell stories reflected in dance.

Paintings come to life mysteriously hovering in the air. These mystic images by visionary painters MARTINA HOFFMANN, ROBERT VENOSA, STEVON LUCERO and ADAM FU twist and bend under the movement of dance, a very enchanting and psychedelic visual effect.

William Cannon Releases 'Running to Duncan's Field'
by BWW News Desk - Apr 4, 2017

High school English teacher Frank Boxer never imagined how his life might change when he chose Duncan Cannon - a dachshund - from the rescue where he was days away from being put down. The faithful dog, now 16, and Frank have a connection that can't be broken, and Frank is equally passionate about his teaching career and students. A new book released by Dog Ear Publishing shares their heartwarming story. Frank, who teaches at Pines Environmental High School, and his closest colleagues find themselves battling the administration and oppressive education system every year. But the annual trip he takes with 22 students makes it all worthwhile: students experiencing wonder at thousands of Fireflies in Nebraska, enjoying the world's largest truck stop in Iowa, taking in circus shows at Las Vegas, hiking to Mooney Falls in the Grand Canyon and learning how to ride horseback and get a living history lesson on a Native American reservation in Pine Ridge, S.D. 'Running to Duncan's Field' features a cast of unforgettable characters, such as Alex White Plume, a Lakota elder whose gift of friendship gives Frank a sense of connection to history and the universe at large. A sister who valiantly fights cancer. Students who are inspired by Frank's unusual teaching methods and who, in return, enlighten Frank's career. Treasured colleagues who challenge the tyrannical administration and question the meaning of high stakes educational testing. Musings and observations from Duncan provide a unique perspective on the relationship between man and dog in this intriguing novel, which explores the bond between one man and the lives that intersect with his, whether they have two legs or four. Seeking balance in life is an inevitable rite of passage, one that Frank experiences on the road and in the classroom. Life with Duncan - whose tail 'was the string to Frank Boxer's kite of a heart' may be the most meaningful lesson of all.
