Together with the Olympics, world's fairs are one of the few regular international events of sufficient scale to showcase a spectrum of sights, wonders, learning opportunities, technological advances, and new (or renewed) urban districts, and to present them all to a mass audience. Meet Me at the Fair: A World's Fair Reader breaks new ground in scholarship on world's fairs by incorporating a number of short new texts that investigate world's fairs in their multiple aspects: political, urban/architectural, anthropological/ sociological, technological, commercial, popular, and representational. Contributors come from eight different countries and represent affiliations in academia, museums and libraries, professional and architectural firms, non-profit organizations, and government regulatory agencies. In taking the measure of both the material artifacts and the larger cultural production of world's fairs, the volume presents its own phantasmagoria of disciplinary perspectives, historical periods, geographical locales, media, and messages, mirroring the microcosmic form of the world's fair itself.

Fifteen year old Aggie has a special bond with her father, an English professor, who shares with her the wonders of Shakespeare's plays. Her world changes suddenly when her father dies of a heart attack. Her mother remarries--too quickly--and takes Aggie to live in her new husband's home. Bitter and confused, Aggie tries to find friends in her new school. She feels lucky to be accepted by the most popular group but soon discovers that to be part of the group means playing cruel jokes on people, and worse. She feels guilty but cannot give up her popularity. When she is alone, she buries herself in her father's copy of Shakespeare's plays, hoping to find her father's voice in Shakespeare's words. On a school trip to England, her father's favorite haunt, Aggie is transported to Shakespeare's time and meets Catherine, the daughter of a Stratford glove maker. Together the girls face the dangers and wonders of England in the year 1605. The dangers include being accused of witchcraft and complicity in the Gunpowder Plot; the wonders take them to Shakespeare's theatre and a discovery that helps Aggie start a new life.
Scott Freeman is a man of reason–a college professor grounded in the rational and practical. But he becomes uneasy after finding an anonymous love letter hidden in his daughter’s room: “No one could ever love you like I do. No one ever will. We will be together forever. One way or another.” But the reality of Ashley’s plight far exceeds Scott’s worst suspicions. One drink too many had led Ashley, a beautiful, bright art student, into what she thought was just a fling with a blue-collar bad boy. But now, no amount of pleading or reasoning can discourage his phone calls, ardent e-mails, and constant, watchful gaze. Michael O’Connell is but a malignant shadow of a man. His brash, handsome features conceal a black and empty soul. Control is his religion. Cunning and criminal skill are his stock-in-trade. Rage is his language. The harder Ashley tries to break free, the deeper Michael burrows into every aspect of her life, so she turns in desperation to her divorced parents and her mother’s new partner–three people still locked in a coldly civilized triangle of resentment. But their fierce devotion to Ashley is the common bond that will draw them together to face down a predator. For Ashley’s family, it is a test of primal love that will drive them to the extreme edge–and beyond–in a battle of wills that escalates into a life-or-death war to protect their own. From the bestselling master of suspense, John Katzenbach, The Wrong Man is an elegantly crafted and breathtakingly intense read that asks the question, “How far would you go to save the child you love?”
