Get fit and stay fit for life with a daily routine that takes less than 5 minutes. Seem impossible? Artie Lynnworth, will share highlights from his book, “Get Fit and Stay Fit for Life,” in a one-hour workshop that includes demonstrations that all can do. His theme is “anything is better than nothing,” and he will share exercises that take 5 minutes or less to accomplish. The exercise program's motivational strategy is linked to self-created positive reinforcement.

In The Mountains Sing, Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai has created a luminous, complex family narrative that spans nearly a century of Vietnamese history, from the French colonial period through the communist Viet Minh's rise to power, the separation between North and South Vietnam, the Vietnam War, all the way to the present day.
