Some of us understand place in terms of family and community, landscape, or even the weather. For others, the idea of place becomes more distinct and particular: the sound of someone humming while washing dishes, the musical cadence of a mountain accent, the smell of a tobacco field under the hot Piedmont sun. Some of North Carolina's finest writers ruminate on the meaning of place in this collection of twenty-one original essays, untangling North Carolina's influence on their work, exploring how the idea of place resonates with North Carolinians, and illuminating why the state itself plays such a significant role in its own literature. Authors from every region of North Carolina are represented, from the Appalachians and the Piedmont to the Outer Banks and places in between. Amazing Place showcases a mix of familiar favorites and newer voices, expressing in their own words how North Carolina shapes the literature of its people. Contributors include Rosecrans Baldwin, Will Blythe, Belle Boggs, Fred Chappell, Jan DeBlieu, Pamela Duncan, Clyde Edgerton, Ben Fountain, Marianne Gingher, Judy Goldman, Stephanie Elizondo Griest, Randall Kenan, Jill McCorkle, Michael McFee, Lydia Millet, Robert Morgan, Jenny Offill, Michael Parker, Bland Simpson, Lee Smith, Wells Tower, and Monique Truong.

Chances are you or someone you know have a friend or family member diagnosed with dementia. More than five million Americans diagnosed with some form of dementia translates to over fifteen million caregivers and loved ones affected by the disease. The emotional, physical and financial toll for caregivers and families can be overwhelming. Twenty years ago, when the words \"dementia\" and \"Alzheimer's\" were rarely uttered, support services were not widely available for families who were struggling, often in silence. These men and women needed a safe place for social, physical and mental stimulation; and the caregiving families needed emotional support and well-deserved time off. When The Seniors Place Adult Day Center was founded to meet these needs, it had three participants. Today, that same organization, now called Amazing Place, serves over 3,000 individuals each year through its dementia day program, caregiver support programs and community education. The mission of enriching lives by providing fellowship, memory care and wellness to those with mild to moderate dementia and to support their families continues today. Although, it may seem a diagnosis of dementia is \"the end, \" every day at Amazing Place, we witness how those with dementia still have much to contribute. Our participants show us that in spite of the losses they face, their souls remain intact. Their lives can still have meaning. They can still teach us. When labels are stripped away, as they inevitably are with dementia, we are able to see these people for who they really are. In this very special place-Amazing Place- the lessons of grace and inspiration remind us we are all amazing in our own way. We trust these stories will help you, whether your life has been touched by dementia or not, to remember what truly matters

Centuries ago, when travelers from the north crossed the Alps and arrived at Lake Garda, surrounded by castles, vineyards and olive and lemon groves, they saw Italy as an enchanted place. Their wonder grew as they journeyed further south, toward the città d'arte on the plain, or in the direction of incomparable Venice. They were astounded by Liguria's craggy coastline and the art of Florence, Pisa and Siena. Immersed in thousands of years of history and set in a diverse landscape were the great ruins of ancient civilizations, the forerunners of the glory of Imperial, Renaissance and Baroque Rome. In sunny southern Italy they discovered beautiful gulfs and islands floating in a sparkling sea. Vesuvius and Naples, the cities and temples of Magna Grecia, Sicily's vibrant colors and the intriguing and mysterious beauty of Sardinia were all there to greet them. These unending and ever-changing visions can still be seen every day by those who live in and visit Italy. Italy's unique geography, stretching as it does from the highest and most beautiful mountains in Europe to the center of the Mediterranean Sea, allows the county to offer a variety of landscapes, natural environments, history, art and monuments that know no equal. This volume collects images of both Italy's well-known sites and its hidden secrets as it traces a path through all of Italy's regions, exploring an area that became a unified country only 150 years ago, yet has been renowned as a place of incredible beauty and pleasure for millennia.
