“UNDENIABLE”

Evolution and the Science of Creation


By

Bill Nye

(Creator ff Host of Emmy-winning

PBS/Discovery Series

"Bill Nye The Science Guy"

1993-1998)

bill nye

 
 
 
 
 
 

Evolution, as first revealed in Charles Darwin's 1859 "Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life" is, according to Scientist, Engineer, Comedian and Inventor Bill Nye "one of the most powerful and important ideas ever developed in the history of science." In "UNDENIABLE", Nye, a visiting Professor at Cornell University, explains evolution using scientific facts from a variety of disciplines to refute creationism. Nye presents an engaging yet comprehensive argument that insisting creationism has a place in Science Class is not only harmful; it's an impediment to America's ability to innovate and compete in the global economy.

“THE FINAL

RECOLLECTIONS

OF CHARLES

DICKENS”

A Novel

 

 

By

Thomas Hauser

Two-time Pulitzer Prize

and National Book Award Nominee

thomas hauser

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

In 1870, a few months before iconic British Author Charles Dickens passes away at his estate outside London, he senses its time to write down a story he's never told. In his 48th book, two-time Pulitzer Prize nominated Author Thomas Hauser seamlessly weaves fact with fiction to present a coming of age story about Dickens who, at 24, marries Catherine Hogarth. It's not a good match and the young newspaper reporter, whose "Pickwick Papers" are about to be published, realizes this when he meets and is captivated by the beautiful Amanda Wingate. But Amanda is the wife of scheming, murderous financial swindler, Geoffrey Wingate. Wingate wants Dickens to write about him. In his "Final Recollections", Dickens reveals the consequences.
