Author Elaine Ambrose is Today’s Honoree

About the Book:

After World War II, the United States evolved economically through an explosive combination of opportunities, entrepreneurs, and growing industries. By 1954, families began to enjoy the new pastime of evening television and increased the demand for a new product known as frozen TV dinners. A poor father and farmer from Wendell, Idaho had the audacity and vision to start his own trucking company to haul and deliver frozen food across the country and subsequently built an impressive fortune that included several successful businesses. Elaine Ambrose, a bestselling author, departs from her award-winning humor to show life as this man’s daughter. She chronicles the struggles her family experienced under the strain of an absent father and describes the high tensions and familial rivalries that arose after his untimely death. Using actual courtroom transcripts, she tells of the brutal courtroom drama that propelled her mother into dementia. She hopes to offer hope and inspiration to others who endured a contaminated family story to prove that anyone may grow beyond painful memories and find success, happiness, and warmth for themselves.

Pop and Rock Sensation Artists EVARIDE are Today’s Honoree

Dubbed iHeart Radio’s “Emerging Artists of the Week,” and recently featured on prominent industry outlets including Billboard , Tidal, and J-14, pop/rock sensation EVARIDE are gearing up to release the fight song of the summer ” Warrior,” on August 24th. With a unique sound channeling Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, and One Republic, we would love to arrange an interview with you and the duo, Sean Michael Murray and Hayden Maringer, to discuss their soon to be released song “Warrior,” their latest single “What’s It All For?,” Hayden’s upcoming performance as part of Live Nation “4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince” 2018 global tour, and their seasoned careers working and touring alongside larger than life acts including Jennifer LopezDemi Lovato, and Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, to name a few.

With the upcoming release of their newest adrenaline filled anthem “Warrior,” EVARIDE solidifies themselves as the new “it’ band to watch. EVARIDE debuted in August 2017 with their single “Heartless,” and quickly racked up over two million streams on Spotify, unheard of for most emerging artists. Combining Sean’s vocally trained Broadway background and Hayden’s self-taught guitar riffs that have impressed artists and music directors twice his age, the band is truly the best of both worlds. The duo consists of guitarist Hayden Maringer (touring guitarist for Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Bebe Rexha, Cody Simpson, Carrie Underwood, The Band Perry and many more), and singer Sean Michael Murray (Broadway’s “American Idiot”). American guitarist, Hayden, decided to form EVARIDE after meeting singer, Sean, who made his Broadway debut in Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning show, “American Idiot” alongside Billie Joe Armstrong.

With over a decades worth of experience as professional touring musicians, and thousands of live breathtaking performances under their belts to sold-out arenas and stadiums, this musical duo is the real deal. Hayden, who might also be recognized from FOX’s “Glee,” has performed on national television programs including the “American Country Music Awards,” “Billboard Music Awards,” “Ellen,” and “American Idol,” just to name a few. Sean, in addition to a decorated Broadway background, had a previous band, Fancy Reagan, and won VH1’s reality show “Make a Band Famous.” His soaring vocals can also be heard on “Knock Me Out,” the debut single from the band that was the theme song for the NCAA 2015 March Madness and featured during the 2015 ESPY Awards.

Combining their individual talents and achievements as young, serious musicians, Sean and Hayden have devoted their lives to their craft and have poured their heart and souls into their new band. With their newest release just around the corner and their debut album out later this year, we would love to arrange an interview with you and the power duo to discuss everything on the horizon for the band that everyone should be watching!

Author Simona Grossi is Today’s Honoree

As soon as I picked this book up, I quite literally did not put it down until I was finished. The way Grossi slowly reveals the mystery of Susan’s past and Andrew’s love life is enrapturing. Andrew’s story of love and loss is deeply poetic and anyone who reads it will find it touching on so many levels. Everyone has faced love, loss, and confusion; Grossi’s “Frozen Butterflies” reminds us that we aren’t alone.”

– Amazon Reviewer

As summer comes to a close, the days of afternoons at the pool and beach are slowing down. Just in time before the fall chaos begins, spend your last summer read devouring Simona Grossi’s new novel, Frozen Butterflies.

Suffering from insomnia, Susan fights daily to get up in the morning and perform her day job as a psychology professor in Los Angeles. Despite all of the talks with a psychologist, the failed pills, the mental illness labels, and more unsuccessful attempts to better herself, nothing is working to rid her of the emptiness that lives inside of her.

But one night, a mysterious person interrupts the mundane blur that has become Susan’s daily life. She meets a man named Nick—an internet blogger—at a nearby nightclub, who appears to be completely “consumed by something, someone, or himself.” The next day, Nick takes Susan to his apartment, where she browses through his books looking for stories for his next post. When she stumbles upon a “consumed notebook with a light blue cover,” it sparks her interest just as much as Nick had the night before.

It turns out Nick found the lost journal on a bus with no knowledge of who its owner is other than his name: Andrew. It’s clear that the owner was a sort of graphic novelist with a passion for drawing his stories to bring them to life. Seeing the potential that the journal has, Susan convinces Nick to publish a few pages on his blog in hopes that the Internet will draw media attention towards finding the mysterious “Andrew.”

Frozen Butterflies’ adventurous, suspenseful journey connects human relationships with the mystery of search and discovery. As a love affair blooms, Susan—a married woman—must work quickly to figure out what is it from life that she both wants and needs. While remaining true to herself, she has to balance the darkness in her life with those that bring light.

Author David Lawrence, Jr. is Today’s Honoree

What are you going to do for the rest of your life?

For David Lawrence Jr., a brilliant newspaper editor and publisher with a distinguished, three-decade-long journalism career who retired in 1999 at the age of 56, the answer, in his words, was to dedicate his life to a “newly energized purposefulness: that every child have a real chance to succeed.”

Lawrence has been a life-long champion of children, and he was instrumental in founding The Children’s Movement of Florida, a national leader in early childhood development, care and education, with the goal of making Florida the best state in the nation for young children.

The Movement is focused on making Florida’s children, especially in their early years, the No. 1 priority for state investment.

Readers will learn all about Lawrence’s work in the Movement and the rest of his incredible life in this inspirational autobiography, A Dedicated Life.

What are people saying about the Dedicated Life?

This special book is the story of a good man who has lived an impressive, fascinating, full life dedicated to his family, his profession, his faith and his service to others, especially the youngest and most vulnerable among us. How he describes the passion, persistence and skills of civic engagement to accomplish these building blocks to success is worth the price of the book. He has brought life to the truism of Frederick Douglass, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”

Jeb Bush, Florida’s 43rd governor from 1999 to 2007 and 2016 presidential candidate

Reading this book is like listening to an old friend telling engaging stories while encouraging you to join the conversation. Dave’s successful career in journalism is a story of the roller coaster of the American newspaper from the halcyon days of post-World War II to the dramatic changes and decline of today. But the most lasting impression you’ll have will be of a highly principled man applying his talents and values in a transitioning America.

Bob Graham, Florida’s 38th governor from 1979 to 1987, U.S. senator from Florida from 1987 to 2005, and presidential candidate in 2003.

Here is an unfailing champion for all children. In A Dedicated Life David Lawrence Jr. shares his ever-committed life story and how each step along the way shaped him and prepared him for service. What an example he is for all of us.

Marian Wright Edelman, President of the Children’s Defense Fund

Americans United for Life President Catherine Glenn Foster is Today’s Honoree

Catherine Glenn Foster, M.A., J.D., is President and CEO of Americans United for Life, America’s first national pro-life organization and the nation’s premier pro-life legal team. AUL’s legal strategists have been involved in every pro-life case before the U.S. Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade. AUL is the pioneer of the state-based model legislative strategy, which works to save lives today while undermining the so-called “reliance” interest adopted by the Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey: the false idea that women “rely” on abortion to succeed in American society. Under Foster’s leadership, AUL pursues and refines a mother-child strategy that looks at the interests and vulnerabilities of both, protecting them from abortion industry abuses.

Foster’s work with AUL first began while she was still in law school, where she organized legal minds in defense of life as a cofounder of Advocates for Life, the pro-life law student group that later joined with AUL, and served as an AUL Legal Fellow.

Foster has litigated precedent-setting § 1983 and other constitutional questions, abortion and maternal health, health and safety regulations, False Claims Act healthcare and Medicaid fraud, euthanasia and assisted suicide, denial of medical care, First Amendment rights, genetic engineering issues, Freedom of Information Act and open records issues, and healthcare and corporate conscience protections.

Foster has authored and testified on numerous domestic, foreign, and international legislation and initiatives, many based on her litigation, as well as white papers, articles, and op-eds on current litigation, choice of law and other legal issues, science, medicine, international human rights, and finance relating to policy making, media, and cultural debates.

Foster has testified before and advised the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce Select Investigative Panel and other federal and state bodies and representatives. She is an experienced keynote speaker and has spoken throughout North America and Australia on legal and life-related issues, including debates and lectures at legal seminars on philosophy, political theory, history, constitutional jurisprudence, and public policy analysis. She and her work have appeared extensively in national media and have received awards, including one for an article on human rights relating to embryo adoption.

Foster spent seven years with Alliance Defending Freedom at its Washington D.C. office, where she was litigation counsel advocating for the dignity of all human life in federal and state trial and appellate courts, and led ADF efforts in the areas of euthanasia, assisted suicide, excellence in care, and related topics.

Foster then founded and managed a law practice focusing on respect for the sanctity of human life and support for like-minded organizations, and led Euthanasia Prevention Coalition USA as Executive Director.

Foster serves as President of the Board of Directors of Rockville Pregnancy Clinic, as a member of the board of directors for And Then There Were None and Christian Legal Society D.C. Metro Chapter, and as an advisory board member for Stanton Healthcare.

Foster earned her J.D. at Georgetown University Law Center and also holds an M.A. in French from the University of South Florida, with a thesis on the effects of the interwar French mandate in Syria and Lebanon on the modern Middle East, and a B.A. in History and French from Berry College.

Foster is admitted to the bar in Virginia and Washington D.C., as well as the U.S. Supreme Court; the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 1st, 5th, 8th, and 9th Circuits; and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. She is a member of the American Bar Association and the Federal Bar Association, an inaugural member of the Federalist Society Founders Club, Senior Fellow in Legal Policy at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, and a fellow with the James Wilson Institute on Natural Rights and the American Founding.

Foster lives with her husband and children in the Washington D.C. area.
