Earphones Award Winner

by Jennifer L. Armentrout | Read by Stina Nielsen

Fantasy • 19.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Stina Nielsen enthralls with this sumptuous romance, which highlights her ability to thoroughly immerse listeners in its fantasy world. Used to living in near-isolation, Poppy finds little ways to rebel against the fate she has accepted. When a new guard gets closer to learning her secrets, stoking her desire, and empowering her decisions, Poppy realizes she has a choice–to fight the danger threatening her life or run. Nielsen employs a wide range of inflections, from the warm, breathless tone of the heroine to the appealing accent of Hawke, the love interest, combining them in the sensual scenes they share. The dramatic impact of her performance is framed perfectly in the audiobook’s world and will be a fan favorite. A.L.

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

Publisher’s Summary

Sarah J. Maas’ sexy, richly imagined series continues with the journey of Feyre’s fiery sister, Nesta.

Nesta Archeron has always been prickly-proud, swift to anger, and slow to forgive. And ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, she’s struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. Worse, she can’t seem to move past the horrors of the war with Hybern and all she lost in it.

The one person who ignites her temper more than any other is Cassian, the battle-scarred warrior whose position in Rhysand and Feyre’s Night Court keeps him constantly in Nesta’s orbit. But her temper isn’t the only thing Cassian ignites. The fire between them is undeniable and only burns hotter as they are forced into close quarters with each other.

Meanwhile, the treacherous human queens who returned to the Continent during the last war have forged a dangerous new alliance, threatening the fragile peace that has settled over the realms. And the key to halting them might very well rely on Cassian and Nesta facing their haunting pasts.

Against the sweeping backdrop of a world seared by war and plagued with uncertainty, Nesta and Cassian battle monsters from within and without as they search for acceptance – and healing – in each other’s arms.

From Blood & Ash….

 

Captivating and action-packed, From Blood and Ash is a sexy, addictive, and unexpected fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa.

A Maiden…

Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers.

A Duty…

The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden.

A Kingdom…

Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.

Review & Earphone Award

Parenting Beyond Pink & Blue by Christia Spears Brown PhD

Though the author’s message may be controversial to some, the charm and authentic positivity in Stina Nielsen’s performance neutralize this audiobook’s polemical aspects, making it a delight to hear. Her youthful timbre and phrasing are part of the appeal, but she also has a remarkable ear for tone and substance. When the subject matter is grave or cautionary, she can shift into serious mode while staying connected to the optimism that gives her performance and this audio its continuity. Some of the author’s strategies are indeed revolutionary–avoidance of gender pronouns and gender-based toy allocation–but that’s what makes this audio compelling. In an age of fluid gender roles, it’s a wake-up call to reject cultural stereotypes about who boys and girls want to be and how they want to live their lives. T.W.

The Timepiece by Beverly Lewis…

The Timepiece, the sequel to The Tinderbox is out now.

As the only daughter, Sylvia Miller of The Tinderbox has always held a special place in her Old Order family, one Adeline Pelham jeopardizes when she shows up at the Millers’ Hickory Hollow farm. It isn’t that Adeline means to be a threat, but her very existence is a reminder of the painful secret that has so recently upended the Miller household. And with Sylvia and her mother still struggling to come to terms with that news, this is a challenging time to welcome an Englisher – especially this Englisher – into their midst.

Despite the Millers’ unexpected hospitality, Adeline is well aware that she’s treading on Sylvia’s turf, and she feels guilty about doing so when Sylvia is grappling with issues of her own. Not only is Sylvia trying to rebuild her trust in her father, but she’s uncertain what to make of her once-promising engagement to Titus Kauffman, who hasn’t pursued her since she confronted him. Adeline wishes she could help Sylvia, but she’s not sure that either she or Sylvia is ready for that level of closeness in their relationship.

Can God make something good come out of the mistakes of the past? Or does Adeline’s arrival mark one too many surprises for the Millers and their Amish community?

Performance 2/20 @ 7 &9pm:

Haunted Files

Produced by American Slavery Project & The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 @ 7PM & 9PM

The Sheen Center in collaboration with The American Slavery Project presents Haunted Files, an immersive evening of theatre, recreating through audience interaction, performance, and talkback the history of scientific racism and eugenics in America. Eugenics is the Progressive Era movement of white Protestant “experts” that sought to eliminate a range of marginalized peoples and elevate Northern Europeans as the norm. The movement pushed these goals through immigration restriction, sterilization, institutionalization, and controlled breeding. It’s legacies continue to have a lasting impact on our country today, even with its dark ties to the atrocities of the Nazi regime.

This evening will draw on the “human trait” files of America’s Eugenics Records Office, specifically the eugenics lecture notes, handed-down pedigree charts, and endless “human trait” files, along with the actual notes of a white eugenics field researcher and an African-Chinese American patient who was deemed automatically “unfit,”institutionalized, and eventually sterilized.

The Eugenics Records Office was the Long Island epicenter of the American eugenics movement. In spring 2015, the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU creatively reimagined the Eugenics Records Office in the exhibit “Haunted Files: The Eugenics Record Office.” American Slavery Project (ASP) was invited to examine the records and created a piece as part of the exhibit programing. ASP writers have imagined the lives of the field worker and the patient and woven the stories of these two women together in a duologue, shedding light on the history of scientific racism in America.

Featuring a post show panel with Adam Cohen, author of Imbeciles: The Supreme Court, American Eugenics, and the Sterilization of Carrie Buck; Noa Fuller and Jack Tchen, co-curators of the original “Haunted Files” exhibition; and Judy Tate, co-founder of The American Slavery Project.

The A/P/A Institute’s “Haunted Files” online can be found here.

The theatrical event will be in the Loreto Theater at 7PM & 9PM.

The Haunted Files Exhibition will be in Studio A&B from 9AM-5PM.

Tickets: $25

*Student rush tickets will be available an hour before any performance for $20 with a valid current student ID

‘Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging’ Review

"Stina Nielsen is a perfect choice for this narration. She gets 14-year-old Georgia just right, capturing her wry humor and moving easily between the panic, misery, and exultation that make up a teenager's day. Nielsen does a stellar narration using a bubbly cadence that has you laughing and cringing throughout."
