This Time Together by Carol Burnett

Original Title: This Time Together

This touching and hilarious memoir is 100 percent Carol Burnett -- funny, irreverent, and irresistible. Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won twenty-five Emmys in its remarkable eleven-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another. In engaging anecdotes, Carol discusses her remarkable friendships with stars such at Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, and Julie Andrews; the background behind famous scenes, like the moment she swept down the stairs in her curtain-rod dress in the legendary “Went With the Wind” skit; and things that would happen only to Carol--the prank with Julie Andrews that went wrong in front of the First Lady; the famous Tarzan Yell that saved her during a mugging; and the time she faked a wooden leg to get served in a famous ice cream emporium. This poignant look back allows us to cry with the actress during her sorrows, rejoice in her successes, and finally, always, to laugh.

Time Together Time Well Spent by Casey Rislov

Original Title: Time Together Time Well Spent

Spending time with family and friends is important. Sometimes our schedules become so hectic we forget to slow down and really interact with one another. Time Together, Time Well Spent reminds us how much fun families can have playing games, building forts, riding bikes, and reading books together. Sharing these simple joys lets us get to know each other and ourselves more deeply, and often leads to many more fun adventures. Time together really is time well spent! “A wonderful antidote to the presence of increasingly isolation-heavy media and technology.” —Midwest Book Review “At its core, this book does what good books do—has you start from page one again upon its conclusion.” —Zachary Pullen, acclaimed author and illustrator Los Angeles Book Festival Winner 2012 Children’s Book Category, Honorable Mention

Doing Time Together by Megan Comfort

Original Title: Doing Time Together

By quadrupling the number of people behind bars in two decades, the United States has become the world leader in incarceration. Much has been written on the men who make up the vast majority of the nation’s two million inmates. But what of the women they leave behind? Doing Time Together vividly details the ways that prisons shape and infiltrate the lives of women with husbands, fiancés, and boyfriends on the inside. Megan Comfort spent years getting to know women visiting men at San Quentin State Prison, observing how their romantic relationships drew them into contact with the penitentiary. Tangling with the prison’s intrusive scrutiny and rigid rules turns these women into “quasi-inmates,” eroding the boundary between home and prison and altering their sense of intimacy, love, and justice. Yet Comfort also finds that with social welfare weakened, prisons are the most powerful public institutions available to women struggling to overcome untreated social ills and sustain relationships with marginalized men. As a result, they express great ambivalence about the prison and the control it exerts over their daily lives. An illuminating analysis of women caught in the shadow of America’s massive prison system, Comfort’s book will be essential for anyone concerned with the consequences of our punitive culture.
