Leadership, loyalty, and change are at the heart of author Stephen Davenport's upcoming novel, Saving Miss Oliver's, which takes place in an all-girls school. Emotionally charged, and politically fraught, the novel also contains valuable content for aspiring leaders who want to overcome resistance to change. We asked Stephen to share his perspective and inspiration on this aspect of the book.

Are you caught up in The Great American Read fever yet? It seems that no matter where I look, everyone has an opinion on the 100 books that made the list, let alone what book should be the top pick for America’s favorite fiction title. (Sorry, nonfiction fans: they weren’t considered for this list.) Kicking off on May 22, the eight-part PBS series will include interviews with authors, celebrities, notable Americans, and regular book lovers across the country, all advocating for their favorite book. Themed episodes explore the concepts behind the books, how readers are affected by these stories, and what their status in the American psyche says about us as a diverse nation with a shared human experience. Voting will take place throughout the summer and fall, leading up to the final episode to reveal the results of nationwide voting and crown America’s best-loved novel.
Season 4 is here with a unique look at lessons from #TheLibraryLife ! Two Librarians and a Microphone: What I Didn’t Learn in Library School.
There’s an online audience for every book. That’s a nice thought, right? If only connecting those booklovers with your content, the content they want and may not yet be aware of, was as simple as knowing they exist.
