A memoir of one young man's coming of age on a journey across America--told through the stories of the people of all ages, races, and inclinations he meets along the way. Life is fast, and I've found it's easy to confuse the miraculous for the mundane, so I'm slowing down, way down, in order to give my full presence to the extraordinary that infuses each moment and resides in every one of us. At 23, Andrew Forsthoefel headed out the back door of his home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, with a backpack, an audio recorder, his copies of Whitman and Rilke, and a sign that read "Walking to Listen." He had just graduated from Middlebury College and was ready to begin his adult life, but he didn't know how. So he decided to take a cross-country quest for guidance, one where everyone he met would be his guide. In the year that followed, he faced an Appalachian winter and a Mojave summer. He met beasts inside: fear, loneliness, doubt. But he also encountered incredible kindness from strangers. Thousands shared their stories with him, sometimes confiding their prejudices, too. Often he didn't know how to respond. How to find unity in diversity? How to stay connected, even as fear works to tear us apart? He listened for answers to these questions, and to the existential questions every human must face, and began to find that the answer might be in listening itself. Ultimately, it's the stories of others living all along the roads of America that carry this journey and sing out in a hopeful, heartfelt book about how a life is made, and how our nation defines itself on the most human level.

The New Christmas Tree inspires readers to turn a holiday standby into a stunning design statement—whether they're looking to add something new to their traditional Christmas decor or create a unique holiday tradition all their own. A closer look at each one-of-a-kind tree reveals the real heart of these designs—beautifully handcrafted ornaments, garlands, and more, from felted bumblebees to delicate paper flowers. Some use traditional Christmas materials in novel ways, while others employ flea-market finds, household objects—even foodstuffs!—to create something entirely unexpected. Each chapter takes readers through the process of constructing a well-balanced tree that is rich in texture and dimension from topper to tree stand—selecting the appropriate lights, making and assembling the decorations, and adding the finishing touches that pull the look together. Also included are information on the fundamentals of tree selection, installation, and design; basic crafting techniques; sources for products, tools, and equipment; and care guidelines.

A state dinner at the White House, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, once-in-a-lifetime birthday celebrations--every lucky guest knows that there is no party like a David Monn party. Using scent, sound, sight, touch, and taste, Monn designs events to be "shared, lived, and felt" by everyone there. Monn's three favorite words--authenticity, scale, and detail--inform every chapter of his book, following him from classic New York nights to events around the world and back again to the most private rites of passage, including entertaining at home. How to do this yourself? It means considering your home as not just rooms, but instead as "a living environment," and not thinking of a birthday as a party, but rather "a milestone of accomplishment and growth." With text by novelist Susan Fales-Hill and a rare foreword by venerable fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, in this volume Monn draws from his personal archive of 20,000 event photographs to reveal the unique beauty of each event.
