Allan Ament, author, Learning to Float, led a discussion about his book and the new normal after his wife's stroke on Sept. 4 at Village Books and Paper Games in Bellingham, Wash. A preview story about the event appeared in the Bellingham Herald on Sept. 3.
Allan and Deloris Ament’s lives took a dramatic turn when Deloris suffered a debilitating stroke. No longer equal partners in marriage, Allan became Deloris’s primary caregiver, responsible for maintaining their household and her well-being. Learning to Float describes Allan’s transformation from a criminal defense attorney to a compassionate, emotionally vulnerable caregiver.
The book draws on contemporaneously written emails and private journal entries, Ament unflinchingly exposes his emotional, mental, and physical ups and downs, consistently focusing on the love, humor, and opportunities for personal and spiritual growth he experiences on this journey.

Hockey season is still more than a month away, but there has been reason for kids throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin to celebrate the sport this summer. Jayne Jones, the author of Drop the Puck, It's Hockey Season just wrapped up her summer book tour.
On Aug. 27, she signed books at the Barnes & Noble bookstores in St. Cloud and Edina.
Drop the Puck, It's Hockey Season is an early reader chapter book that is scoring hat tricks for its ability to help young readers score goals. The book tells the story of two brothers, Blaine and Cullen. On and off the ice, they have a deep love for the game and also each other! Cullen is the all-star team captain, but his brother, team manager Blaine, who has Down syndrome, is clearly the unsung hero of the team.
A number of hockey professionals have endorsed the book, including former NHL player and General Manager Lou Nanne, who said, "Drop the Puck, It's Hockey Season will make kids laugh, think and appreciate little victories." Joe Pavelski, alternate captain for the San Josw Sharks said, "Drop the Puck, It's Hockey Season is bound to make young readers laugh, think and find a new love for the game and reading!"
Jones' Midwest Book tour made stops at the following stores in Minnesota: Village Books in Grand Rapids, the USA Hockey Hall of Fame in Eveleth, Book World in Detroit Lakes, Sister Wolf Bookstore in Park Rapids, Book World in Bemidji, Book World in Baxter, Breezy Point Resort in Breezy Point, and the Barnes and Noble stores in Rochester, Eden Prairie, St Cloud and Edina .
