It was the first Saturday in April 1968. I stood alongside family members and looked out the windows from our home. No ordinary fire was burning in East Baltimore. It was the first night of the rioting that broke out two days after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. The flames seemed out of control and shot far into the air. The next day, Palm Sunday, plumes of smoke crossed the skies. A few days ago, I received an advance copy of what promises to be the definitive history of that incident.

At first, Michele Norris didn't think her revelatory, heart-piercing book, "The Grace of Silence," would get so personal. The co-host of "All Things Considered" presumed that writing about race would extend the work she had done in 2008 for a multipart National Public Radio series that asked residents of York, Pa., straightforward questions. "Do white Americans underestimate discrimination? Do black people make too much of it? How would the country be different if led by a black man?"

About a year ago, Stephanie Barber looked up Bob Seger's 1976 classic "Night Moves" on YouTube, trying to figure out the lyrics. "I started reading the comments, and I just spent hours reading, and I cried, and I was like, 'Oh my god, this is so moving, this forum," Barber said. Barber, a Baltimore artist and writer, turned those unedited YouTube comments into a book called "Night Moves. " It's her way of exploring human nature, especially through relatively new public forums like YouTube.

It's one of those scenarios that would be hard to believe in a movie.  As John Waters embarked on the cross-country hitchhiking trip that is memorialized in his recently published book, "Carsick," a 20-year-old Tea Party-affiliated legislator from Frederick County offered him a ride.  And, to make it all the more cinematic, the Bible-thumping college student and the "Pope of Trash" hit it off.  " We don't see eye to eye on a lot of...

This week I started a new book and before I'd made it past the introduction, I was already in tears. The book was about coping with the grief of losing a pet. I can barely handle it on paper. I can't even imagine what it will feel like in real life. But that's what Jon Katz's new book is all about -- helping people like me, those who love their furry ones dearly -- find peace when they go. Katz wrote the book, called "Going Home: Finding Peace When Pets Die," after he lost his beloved border collie Orson, the dog he credits with changing his life, and helping him realize he wanted to write about animals.

Perryville's rich history is the focus of a new "Images of America" book, thanks to town commissioner Alan Fox. The book filled with historical photos and the stories behind them was released Jan. 16 after nearly a year of planning and work. Fox, a longtime Perryville resident, was interested in pursuing the project when Arcadia Publishing, the company responsible for the book series, contacted the town to find a prospective writer. "[I] wanted to give it a try," he said, especially given his interest in local history.

Apparently Fieri really had a good time at the Sip & Bite .  "I'm not allowed to watch the rerun of Sip & Bite because I fall off my chair laughing," Fieri writes in the new book. "These guys are some of the funniest people I've met in my Triple D travels.

In 1997, Madeleine Albright couldn't have been more certain that she knew everything important about herself and was in possession of every relevant fact about her life. And then, at age 59, just days after being confirmed as U.S. secretary of state, Albright became aware that her parents had kept a big secret from her, her sister, Kathy, and their brother, John. "I had no idea that my family heritage was Jewish," said Albright, a native of Czechoslovakia. "I had no idea that more than two dozen of my relatives died in the Holocaust.
