Dr. Graff Remembers: World War II, by Peter Carl Graffagnino, M.D.
In an amazing piece of literature—found among the author’s papers by family members years after his death in 1984—this astute and articulate physician describes his descent into what he calls a “break with reality.” His mental status deteriorated to insanity.
However, on his return to America, Dr. Graff entered a Texas hospital and was eventually cured. His recovery was so complete that his physician colleagues saw him as a revered leader and mentor, never suspecting the toll that war had once placed on his health.

Tobacco Roots: Just This Side of WWII, by Connie W. Vice
A collection of poems, Tobacco Roots portrays rural life in a small Kentucky community in the 1960s. With this backdrop, Vice discusses themes such as the freedom of childhood, the warmth of community and the profound beauty in everyday moments. As she writes in the author’s note, “There is poetry in all things that allow imagination. I don’t mean just poetry of words but the poetry of living each moment.”

One Apple at a Time, by Evan Williams
Dolling out homespun advice peppered with bygone language, Glenn makes indelible impression on a young mind in search of a real-life hero. Acres of gigantic apple trees become the classroom where Glenn imparts the greatest gift he has to offer a grandchild--the fundamental lessons of life.
Set in the tranquil mountains of Western North Carolina and spanning two centuries of local history, One Apple at a Time chronicles the Williams family’s march toward the American Dream.
More than a tribute to one man, this historical narrative captures the essence of all that is good about family. Inseverable bonds--to each other, their community and their land--are the result for this close-knit family in the business of growing apples on the same soil for multiple generations. Come along and share their triumphs, mourn their losses, and laugh aloud as they deal with the challenges of farm life, one apple at a time.
