Kindness Is In Me: Poems in Praise of Men (Print NW, 2011), a book of poetry and photos by Bill Kelly ’68, portrays generally overlooked acts of kindness and compassion by men who are “quietly assisting all of us in building more convivial communities.” The event that inspired this project was profoundly tragic: the murder of four police officers at a coffee shop in Tacoma, Wash., in 2009. Kelly’s work highlights the ordinary fathers, brothers, husbands, sons, and friends whose extraordinary qualities of compassion, wisdom, and kindness “are trying to heal the eons of damage they inherited from men who wielded masculine power.” Liz Carney '11

The 7 Keys to Unlocking the Secrets of Your City’s Budget (CreateSpace, 2011) begins with a simple but important premise: City budgets, much like cities themselves, are all unique— financed, formatted, and even arranged differently. Mary Jo Zenk ’80 educates citizens of all backgrounds to the fundamentals of understanding city budgets. With 25 years’ experience as a budget analyst, Zenk guides readers through understanding the basic elements of any budget document, then she builds to help people make moredetailed decisions on how to allocate city spending.
