AUTHOR OF SEARCHING FOR MY FATHER DURING WORLD WAR 2
Philip Gambone, a gay man, never told his father the reason why he was rejected from the draft during the Vietnam War. In turn, his father never talked about his participation in World War II. Father and son were enigmas to each other. Gambone, an award-winning novelist and non-fiction writer, spent seven years uncovering who the man his quiet, taciturn father had been, by retracing his father's journey through WW II. As Far As I Can Tell not only reconstructs what Gambone’s father endured, it also chronicles his own emotional odyssey as he followed his father’s route from Liverpool to the Elbe River. A journey that challenged the author’s thinking about war, about European history, and about “civilization."

Last Train from Hiroshima offers a "you are there" time capsule, gracefully wrapped in elegant prose. At the narrative's core are accounts, some eyewitness and some to still be substantiated, of those who experienced the atomic explosions firsthand - both Japanese civilians and American fliers in the air. Thirty people are known to have fled Hiroshima for Nagasaki - where they arrived just in time to survive the second bomb. According to Pellegrino, one of them is the only person who experienced the full effects at ground zero both times. Pellegrino weaves spellbinding stories together within a narrative that challenges the "official report", showing what happened - and providing an explanation into the why.

Writer & Filmmaker
Rick DeLano has worked as a producer, executive producer, and financial consultant in the music and film industries for more than 20 years. His fascination with the question of our place in the cosmos began with a $1,000 Internet challenge to provide direct scientific proof of the universally assumed motion of the Earth around the sun. When he found that he (nor anyone else for that matter) couldn’t collect, he was astonished to realize no one had ever made a documentary film examining the Copernican Principle—the foundational idea of modernity itself and how it came to be perhaps the most widely believed metaphysical assumption in the history of the human race. THE PRINCIPLE, which Rick wrote and produced, is the first documentary examination of this cosmological principle. Needless to say, it has generated a bit of controversy, which is fine with Rick.
