A collection of enlightening nonfiction titles that will appeal to today’s life-long learners. Titles will include a range of topics from how-to, financial advice, health issues, personal growth, and other high-interest topics focused on the lifestyle of today’s large print reader.



After a breakup and a string of professional setbacks, Megan Feldman Bettencourt was embittered. Then she met a man named Azim, who had forgiven the man who killed his only son. She was perplexed. Was there something wrong with him, or with her? She wondered about our ability to forgive — why we have it, why we do it, and if it can help us. Here is the story of Megan’s quest to understand this complex concept.
