An inspirational rallying call about education, race, and the true nature of equality—the Harvard Graduate School of Education convocation speech praised as “powerful” by Hillary Rodham Clinton in Teen Vogue and “inspired” by Justin Timberlake In emotionally charged spoken-word poetry, Livingston shares a message of hope and hard truths, declaring that education can become an equalizer only if we first acknowledge the inequality and racial divides holding back America’s future. Livingston is dedicated to helping young people reach their celestial potential, and in his galvanizing commencement address, now adapted for the first time to the page, he calls on us to raise our voices on behalf of all children, as their brighter futures can light up our own. Together, we can lift off! Praise for Donovan Livingston “Donovan Livingston gave a powerful speech at the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s convocation. In a spoken-word poem, he shared his struggles in life and urged his fellow graduates to fight inequality and inspire students. . . . Donovan’s message hit home. . . . [He is] part of a rising generation that’s . . . standing up to some of the biggest challenges in the world today.”—Hillary Rodham Clinton, Teen Vogue “These are the words, and Donovan Livingston’s voice and spirit are the music, but in any form, this rare graduation speech tells us that learning is full of bias yet can lead us to the stars.”—Gloria Steinem “Donovan Livingston’s Lift Off is our youth’s gift to us. In this joyous young man’s voice is the promise of tomorrow.”—James McBride

The author's parents come from respectable stock, God-honoring, community-centered and self-made. When her father Arthur Corey goes off the deep end of religion to become an itinerate preacher, his relatives don't understand. Nor does Margaret his wife, nor does her extended family--at least for a time. The story is told in three parts: Chronicle One begins in 1937 with Arthur's purchase of an abandoned grange hall that becomes the Grange House into which babies, including the author, are born...one after another, after another. The children grow up within the shadow of a father's strong character and unpredictable style, and under the tutelage of their faithful mother, all the while living without electricity next to an outhouse where catalogs are used instead of toilet paper. This clan becomes skilled in facing challenges with grit, in adapting throwaways into tools, and in building experiences into strengths. Chronicle Two is the author's first-person story beginning with her earliest memory. The memory of taking apart the Grange House, while living in it, and carrying it down the highway piece by piece to build a barn-like temporary shack that becomes the Farmhouse. During the next twelve years, the family grows by two more babies, some in-laws, and multiple foster children. All the while working toward the day that: We finally have a real house. Chronicle Three brings the entire clan together for the first time in 27 years at a family reunion--a time of re-acquaintance, restoration, and renewal.

Starstream! A great interstellar migration has begun, down the grand, ethereal highway known as the starstream—from the remnant of the Betelgeuse supernova to the center of the Milky Way. Who could have predicted the wonders of the starstream, or the perils it would unleash—including the Throgs, shadowy beings of n-space that seem to understand only death and destruction? But life goes on, dangers or no, and colonists pour down the starstream seeking new worlds. Aboard starship Charity are many such colonists, including one Claudi Melnik, a child of uncommon talents—and an AI named Jeaves, with purposes of his own. When the unthinkable occurs, Claudi must face alone the challenge of the Throgs. And no one, not even Jeaves, could have predicted the final confrontation—or imagined where unexpected allies would be found. Triumphant sequel to the bestselling From a Changeling Star, Down the Stream of Stars is a daring journey across the gulf between human and alien, to the heart of consciousness itself. Named one of the best science fiction novels of the year by Science Fiction Chronicle. DRM-free ebook edition. Original print publication by Bantam Spectra. REVIEWS AND QUOTES: Named one of the best SF novels of 1990 by Science Fiction Chronicle. “It was no surprise that...Jeffrey Carver’s Down the Stream of Stars would have heavy emphasis on science as well as good writing....” —Don D’Ammassa, in Science Fiction Chronicle “Carver’s ingenuity is everywhere apparent.” —Locus “I enjoyed it immensely. Carver provides another wild ride through a deranged cosmos. His imagination is matched only by his compassion. Marvelous effort!” —Jack McDevitt, author of Seeker and Chindi. . . . and other works of Jeffrey A. Carver “Masterfully captures the joy of exploration.” —Publishers Weekly “One of the few hard SF writers whose characters are as interesting as the deep science.” —Melissa Scott, author of Dreamships and Trouble and Her Friends “Jeff Carver is a hard sf writer who gets it right—his science and his people are equally convincing. “ —Gregory Benford, author of the Galactic Center novels
