This book is about how happy it made a little girl when her mom bought her a pair of tap dancing shoes while on a shopping trip at the mall. It tells about some fun filled exciting experiences both boys and girls may have with a pair of tap dancing shoes. The illustrator used Chesley's original artwork ideas as well as his/her own in the illustrations. The last two illustrations in her book are of dancewear used in her first dance recital.

As Chesley's mother, I like this book because it allows children to see what they can do too by putting forth the effort to do their best whatever the task, and not take shortcuts or take the easy way out all the time, especially in their reading and writing at school. I hope it will give students the confidence to persevere in their goals/dreams no matter what others do or say or how difficult it may get at times. This is also a fun and exciting book.

Chesley wrote this story in class one day about something she enjoyed doing, taking tap dancing lessons.

"It's been a long time since I read a novel with such charm, generosity, humor, daring, and brilliance. It is just splendid." -- Bobbie Ann Mason

Thirty years after her stepbrother's unsolved murder, a reluctant Mary Byrd Thornton is forced by a detective's call to return to her family and again confront the crime's irremovable stain.

This stunning debut--from the cofounder of the legendary Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi--is a work of fiction, but the murder is based on the still-unsolved case of Lisa Howorth's stepbrother, a front page story in the Washington Post. And yet this is not a crime novel; it is an honest and luminous story of a particular time and place in the South, where even calamitous weather can be a character, everyone has a story, and all are inextricably entwined.

With a flamboyant cast, splendid dark humor, a potent sense of history, and a shocking true story at its heart, Flying Shoes is a rich and candid novel from a fresh new voice about family and memory and one woman's flight from a wounded past.

She received the Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts in 1996 and a MacDowell Colony Fellowship in 2007. Her writing has appeared in Garden & Gun and the Oxford American.

Street Children In Kenya

As kinship relationships and support networks across family lines weaken with modernization, economic stressors take a great toll on children. Kenya, like some other nations in Africa and around the globe, has witnessed a rapid rise in street children. The street children in Nairobi come from single parent families which are mostly headed by women. Another group are AIDS orphans. This study documents how street children in Nairobi follow survival strategies including (for boys) collecting garbage, and (for girls), prostitution. Gender is emphasized throughout the book.

Although impoverished families are the most likely to produce street children, not all poor families have their children on the streets. The problem of street children is a complex one that calls for a comprehensive and coordinated policy and program for intervention at all levels and in all sectors of society. Alleviating poverty and rebuilding the family institution should be among the first steps in addressing the problem.
