The Olive Route (Non-fiction)
Books by Carol Drinkwater
Like the Silk Road and the Spice Route, the Olive Route stretching 2,200 miles from Gibraltar to northern Syria encompasses not just a journey, but an epic adventure involving the age-old transportation of a precious commodity. Carol Drinkwater travelled along this beautiful and sometimes dangerous route, uncovering ancient stories, meeting striking and courageous people and tracing its venerable olive culture.

Tracking the Cretans, Phoenicians, Greeks and the Romans, amongst others, she eventually finds her way back to her olive farm in the sun-baked hills of southern France. The Olive Route recounts a thrilling, heroic, sensual and entertaining journey by the bestselling author of the much loved Olive series.


Red River (Fiction)
Books by Lalita Tademy
Lalita Tademy weaves together history and the story of her own family to bring us an epic work of fiction, the dramatic, intertwining story of two families struggling to make a place for themselves in an America deeply divided after the Civil War.

For the newly freed black residents of Colfax, Louisiana, the beginning of Reconstruction promised them the right to vote, own property, and at last, control their own lives. But in the space of a day, angry whites would take back Colfax in one of the deadliest incidents of racial violence in Southern history, In the bitter aftermath, the Tademys and the Smiths will have to deal with the wreckage, push on, and build a better life for their sons and daughters over the next seventy years.

Night Falls On Damascus (Mystery)
Books by Frederick Highland
Night Falls on Damascus holds up a mirror to the continuing puzzle of the Middle East as it weaves a rich and engrossing tale of murder, revenge, and the corruption of power. With the introduction of Inspector Nikolai Faroun, a new type of hero enters the mystery scene, a man with a hidden past, a Levantine working for a hated Western regime, a man caught between two worlds who can trust no one and call no one friend.

Exile (Mystery)
Books by Richard North Patterson
International bestselling author Richard North Patterson takes his political and legal thrillers one step further by focusing his latest novel, EXILE, on the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

A SIMPLE CURVE
A belated rite of passage finds tensions rising between an idealistic father and his increasingly independent son in this family drama that proves it's never too late for a little teenage rebellion. Twenty-seven-year-old Caleb (Kris Lemche) and his father, Jim (Michael Hogan), have always seemed more like old friends than father and son.

An easy-going father who dodged the American draft to forge his own future by founding a carpentry shop in British Columbia's Kootenays, Jim and Caleb spend the days crafting a variety of fine products, but lately the bills have been stacking up and tensions between father and son rising. Now faced with the very real possibility of their business failing as a result of direct competition with mass produced particle board products and Jim's misguided perfectionism, the family business teeters on the verge of bankruptcy until the arrival of Jim's old friend Matthew (Matt Craven) instills Caleb with a much needed dose of pragmatism.

Though Jim has long voiced disapproval of Caleb's proposal to open a luxury fishing lodge that may bring in more money and keep the family business afloat, Caleb decides to take his fate into his own hands and finally strike out on his own. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR
In 1996, electric cars began to appear on roads all over California. They were quiet and fast, produced no exhaust and ran without gasoline. Ten years later, these cars were destroyed. It was among the fastest, most efficient production car ever built. It ran on electricity, produced no emissions and catapulted American technology to the forefront of the automotive industry.

The lucky few who drove it never wanted to give it up. So why did General Motors crush its fleet of EV-1 electric vehicles in the Arizona desert? Who killed the electric car? chronicles the life and mysterious death of the EV-1; examining the cultural and economic ripple effects caused by its conception and how they reverberated through the halls of government and big business.

A documentary that investigates the birth and death of the electric car, as well as the role of renewable energy and sustainable living in the future. Buy the DVD > WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR
