Old Questions


Phil Zuckerman

Recent polls show 30% of Americans are living their lives without faith in God. Millions more profess to be "spiritual but not religious." Despite prejudice, secular humanism, the belief that we're capable of living morally upright, fulfilled lives without God and organized religion, is being embraced by growing numbers of men and women from all walks of life. It's America's fastest growing "faith". In his latest book, Pitzer College Sociology Professor Phil Zuckerman, who established the nation's first academic program to study secular culture, proffers a wide-ranging manifesto with stories of those abiding by their own principles in pursuit of a moral life.

A Novel




Vanessa Manko

vanessa manko


In her debut novel, Author Vanessa Manko draws on her Ukrainian grandfather's life to tell the sweeping story of Russian immigrant Austin Voronkov who arrives in Connecticut just before the Bolshevik Revolution erupts in his homeland in 1913. A trained engineer, Austin begins to build a life, finds his true love and starts a family only to face deportation when he's wrongly suspected of being a Soviet sympathizer. While his beloved wife Julia and the children are eventually allowed to return to the U-S, Austin is indefinitely stranded in Mexico, stymied by the taint of his earlier deportation and the unrelenting suspicions of an FBI Agent. Will time and distance destroy his sanity, or will the enduring power of love and family transcend borders, end his exile and pave the way home?

The Nature and Nurture

of Passion


Gregg Levoy

gregg levoy


Passion sparks vitality and it can be cultivated if you're willing to step away from the sidelines and get onto the playing field. But, in "Vital Signs", Journalism Professor and Author Gregg Levoy explains that as human beings, we are constantly influenced by our need for security over our desire of passionate pursuits. To avoid "stuckness", Levoy, whose previous books include "Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life", draws on science, psychology, philosophy and in-depth interviews to show how passion can be developed as a mind-set – a stance – that can be honed through patience, endurance and stamina and reignited to live your best life.
