BETWEEN THE PAGES: Kevin Downswell’s The Search Continues gets summer release date

Earlier this year Kevin Downswell revealed to TALLAWAH readers that he was in the process of completing a motivational tome that would provide fresh insight into his evolution as a musician and Christian minister, while sharing some hard-earned wisdom he hopes will empower and inspire those who pick up a copy. True to his word, Downswell is now gearing up for the summer release of The Search Continues (KD Ministries), which will be launched on Saturday, July 25, at Alternative Music Limited (5 Keesing Avenue), the home of Keesing Live. But that’s not all. As it happens, the book launch represents only half of the festivities Kevin has planned for patrons who come out to support. A live concert in celebration of the book’s release will rock the venue immediately after, with performances by Omari, D-Murphy and the On the Shout Band, among other friends of KD Ministries. Part proceeds from the event will benefit the I Fed One Foundation. For more information and to book tickets, contact Source of Light, the Music Mart or Sam Wisdom Music.

>> TALLAWAH PICKS: Two more summer reads to consider:

CHAPTER TWO: Few classics explore Big Themes of race, class and humanity with the verve and universal resonance of To Kill a Mockingbird. That’s one of the reasons author Harper Lee’s long-gestating follow-up Go Set a Watchman (Harper Publishers) is such an avidly awaited release. Featuring many of the characters from Mockingbird who are now leading new lives 20 years later, Watchman revolves around the very likeable Scout, who returns to her deep South roots to reconnect with dear ol’ dad Atticus – a reunion that touches off issues both personal and political. [288 pages; Slated for release July 14]

HEAT WAVE: If you thought February’s big-screen rendering of Fifty Shades of Grey was the last time the world would hear from Christian Grey, think again. Back by popular demand, the obsessed-about billionaire with the questionable ‘tastes’ narrates Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as told by Christian (Vintage), in which author E.L. James shed new light on the “love story” that enthralled millions of readers, giving us a window into Christian’s psyche – his deepest thoughts, reflections and dreams. Fire extinguisher not included. [576 pages; In store now]
