GenX Book Club
Special announcement - The GenX Book Club is up and running, and we will begin discussing the first selection this October! The Book club can be found as a Facebook Group or can be found on Bookclubs.com for those of you not on Facebook. We will select one book a month (for the time being) that members of Generation X will enjoy. It may be an autobiography/biography of a Gen X celebrity, or books that take place from the 1970s through the 1990s, or books that members of Gen X grew up reading. All generations are welcome here because we're cool like that. There will be discussions throughout the month, and a Zoom meeting at the end of the month, which may be aired on the Return to the '80s podcast. I will also try to get the author of the selected book on the call/podcast.

Episode 65: All the Way Strong with Celeste Joan
On this episode of Journey of the Rhode Runner, Paul is joined by the author of All the Way Strong, Celeste Joan. As Paul heads toward a career in writing, he found Celeste's YouTube/AuthorTube channel, He discovered that Celeste was releasing her debut novel, and it centers around a cross country and track runner. This is a great book to pick up now as we head into cross-country season. Paul cannot recommend this well-written book highly enough! Paul and Celeste have a great conversation about both writing and running. Here is a description of All the Way Strong: I can’t go back. I can’t change things. I can’t let them see my pain. Rain, wind, heat, or snow, high school junior Olivia Bennett is used to running no matter the circumstance. Even when the pain in her knee causes her to slow down, she still competes against herself every cross-country meet. That’s what she trained herself to do. Until one day, the pain is too unbearable to hide from her coach. Forced to stop running until she’s cleared by a doctor, one visit with her primary care physician quickly turns into multiple visits to the hospital. When a devastating diagnosis is reached, the idea of running again slips from her grasp. While deciding whether to fight for her past or embrace an uncertain future, Olivia does her best to focus on normal life, hoping she won’t lose more of herself along the way. And check out this great book trailer: Now enjoy the episode! You can get All the Way Strong on Amazon and you can get a signed copy from Celeste's web site.
