    About Our Guest:
    Catherine W. Rouhana, a Baltimore native and second of 10 children, embarked on a unique life journey. Meeting her husband Nagib in college, they closed their Polish interest bookstore when his role at the World Bank led to a position in Saudi Arabia. Living in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon during the late ’70s and early ’80s, the couple faced the perils of political involvement and the challenges of war.
    In 1986, Catherine moved back to the U.S. with her children, while Nagib remained in the Middle East. Over 18 years, she chronicled her experiences, learning about writing, publishing, and herself. Despite the international separation, family unity remained crucial.
    Catherine’s upcoming memoir reflects a life shaped by love, international adventures, and the enduring strength of family bonds amidst geopolitical complexities.

    Fake It Till You Make It (The Calvary Brothers Book 1) https://a.co/d/3h6jpmb
    Debbie Mason meets Lizzie Shane in this small-town romance where a burned-by-love veterinarian arranges a fake partnership with a down-on-her-luck city girl in order to save his family business.
    When Amarie Walker goes for something, she goes big—including starting over. Leaving her cheating ex and entire D.C. life in the rearview, she crash lands in a small town with no plan, no money, and no job. An opening at the animal clinic is the only gig for miles, no surprise considering the vet is a certified grump. If Eli Calvary ever cracked a smile, Amarie might faint on sight from shock. At least his adorable golden retriever appreciates her fabulousness…and shares her love of daily treats!
    When Eli took over his late father’s practice, he quickly discovered the clinic was facing foreclosure. So there’s no time for social niceties, especially not flirting, even with someone as gorgeous, bubbly, and business-savvy as Amarie. Yet when Eli needs to invent an investor on the fly, it’s her name that comes to his lips. Now, for the sake of their furry clients, Eli and Amarie hustle to save the clinic, trying to ignore the nonstop sparks between them. Because while their partnership may be fake, their connection already feels way too real.
    . .
    Cousins: All We Got Is Us https://a.co/d/5XcC7YW
    In this coming-of-age story, the Walker cousins face their own individual challenges while growing up in Washington, DC, during the 80s and 90s. In a world where it's easy to feel alone and lost, they lean on each other and vow to stick together. But one day, a tragic event tests the bonds of their unity, as family secrets begin to unravel. Soon they discover that their enemies were never those on the outside but the ones within their midst.

    Break Self: Feed with Gabrielle Myers

    in Poetry

    Break Self: Feed with Gabrielle Myers
    Break Self: Feed meditates on eroticism and relationships with searing language play. The poems sing of our ecosystems, their human threats, and possible cures based on nourishment and barrier fracture. In eco-poetic lyrics, borderlands and boundaries evolve in reference to a deep connection with the natural world that surrounds us with its seasonal shifts and the impacts of climate change. We never know when abundance and satiation will come. We spend so much time preparing for devastation and desiccation, so much energy we waste planning our ruin. Break Self: Feed repurposes that drive, energy, and time towards preparing for our proliferation, our unfurling, our living into our potential. Dig into the soil, feel fine-webbed roots working out their networks of nutrient pull and harvest. Let’s mimic the roots’ motion to gather, see what we can get out of the perfect soil, set ourselves on expansion, lengthening, growth. 
    Gabrielle is a writer, professor, and chef. Her memoir, Hive-Mind, published in 2015, details her time of love, awakening, and tragic loss on an organic farm. Her first poetry book, Too Many Seeds, was published in 2021. Her third poetry book, Points in the Network, is forthcoming from Finishing Line Press.
