    It's the beginning of trout fishing season, and Josh Greenberg—proprietor of one of the nation's most famous fishing outfitters, on America's most iconic trout-fishing stream, the Au Sable River in Michigan—is standing in the Au Sable at dusk when he gets the call that a dear fishing buddy has died.The solace he takes from fishing—from reading the movement of the river water, studying the play of the light, and relying on his knowledge of insect and fish life—prompts him to reflect on the impact of the natural world on his life in his fisherman's journal.Over the course of a year, the journal transcends fishing notes to include some beautifully lyrical nature writing, entertaining stories of the big one that got away, cheerful introspection about a love that's hard to explain, and yes, a tip or two.Eventually, Josh Greenberg realizes he hasn't been all alone in the woods, not really. Much of his relationship with his family and friends has played out on the river. And as he catches—and releases—trout after trout back into one of the most beautiful rivers in America, Greenberg comes to help us realize, too, that there's more to fishing than catching fish.

    “Being ‘Drunk on Confidence' is not some throw-away phrase for an inspirational Insta caption, it's a lifestyle, a complete shift in perspective that will help you feel empowered and confident every day.”Radio and TV personality, Heidi Anderson was always the girl who wore a cardigan in summer to cover her arms, and board shorts to the beach on the rare occasion she dared to go. She spent years hating herself; silencing her body demons through sex, booze and boys.Heidi knows what it's like to feel alone, to deal with debilitating anxiety daily and to constantly try to please people; pretending to be okay on the outside, while suffering crushing insecurities on the inside.After breaking down on live radio to 300 thousand listeners and making the nerve-racking confession,“I wish I could sit here and tell you that I love myself because that's what people expect me to say, but I can't. I absolutely hate my body”She experienced a life-changing moment.Her gut-wrenching admission forced her to embrace her vulnerabilities, challenge her old beliefs and learn how to say a big fat ‘'Fuck You” to unrealistic beauty standards, and a big ‘'Up Yours' to all diets and society's expectations.Heidi is unapologetically authentic, her memoir is filled with honesty, humour and home-truths. She will show you how she dealt with her inner mean girls that told her she wasn't skinny enough, good enough or simply that other people mattered more than she did. She will inspire you to STOP worrying what other people think and take your power back!‘Heidi Anderson is a straight up legend; she just gets it! She works hard, she's an ideas machine and is a content queen. Heidi is the ultimate hype girl, I know this cause she's been mine since 2013.' TANYA HENNESSY, Comedian, TV amp; Radio Personality

    Moby-Dick

    "Moby-Dick; or, The Whale" is a novel by American writer Herman Melville, published in 1851 during the period of the American Renaissance. Sailor Ishmael tells the story of the obsessive quest of Ahab, captain of the whaler Pequod, for revenge on Moby Dick, the white whale which on an earlier voyage destroyed his ship and severed his leg at the knee. The novel was a commercial failure and out of print at the time of the author's death in 1891, but during the 20th century its reputation as a Great American Novel was established.
     
    William Faulkner confessed he wished he had written it himself, and D. H. Lawrence called it "one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world," and "the greatest book of the sea ever written." "Call me Ishmael" is among world literature's most famous opening sentences. The product of a year and a half of writing, the book draws on Melville's experience at sea, on his reading in whaling literature, and on literary inspirations such as Shakespeare and the Bible.
     
    The detailed and realistic descriptions of whale hunting and of extracting whale oil, as well as life aboard ship among a culturally diverse crew, are mixed with exploration of class and social status, good and evil, and the existence of God. In addition to narrative prose, Melville uses styles and literary devices ranging from songs, poetry, and catalogs to Shakespearean stage directions, soliloquies, and asides.
