OA: Teetering Toward the Tipping Point
by Barbara Quint
How many times have you seen tipping points? Many times, no doubt. How many times—and tell the truth—have you seen a tipping point coming or even recognized its occurrence clearly? Lots of us have just known in our heart of hearts that something would triumph some day, but usually, when it actually does, we seemed to have been looking out the window at something else. This could explain why we're all not as rich as our insights should have made us. Well, we all know that open access (OA) will achieve its tipping point and—dare I say it?—replace print publications and, more importantly, traditional print publishers. But it will happen in due time. That's always the ringer—timing.

The Carousel Carver The Carousel Carver
by Perdita Buchan

This evocative historical novel tells the story of Giacinto, who emigrates from Italy in 1912 and becomes a carousel carver during the golden age of the craft in America, and Rosa, the eight-year-old orphan girl thrust into his care.

The Carousel Carver vividly recreates the world of the immigrant carvers—from the inspiration found in fiery horses, big cats, and children's laughter to the clatter, sawdust, and politics of Philadelphia's bustling multicultural workshops. This is an engaging and insightful tale of tolerance, second chances, and what it means for those once adrift to call America home.
