Of the roughly 6.97 billion people on Earth today, approximately 2 billion of them are under 20 years old. Millennials have a lot of reputations these days, but powerful, smart, and affective are not usually the adjectives used to describe them. Jared Kleinert and Stacey Ferreira want to change that and empower these young people to follow their dreams, set goals, and achieve success. Both young successful entrepreneurs themselves, they believe in breaking down age barriers to make a difference. Jared, best-known as the Founder and CEO of Synergist, and Stacey, best-known as the Co-Founder of MySocialCloud.com met in 2012 at the Under 20 Thiel Fellowship Summit. After speaking with their equally impressive peers, they realized that these 2 billion young voices have inspiring stories to share with the world and they wanted to bring them to life through 2 Billion Under 20. Jared and Stacey also decided to start an online community, www.2BillionUnder20.com where young people could help each other grow and develop their dreams into reality. They've curated an anthology of amazing stories from their peers. Contributors like Paige McKenzie who started her own YouTube channel at the age of 16 that now has more than 55 million views and Jack Andraka who created an early detection Pancreatic cancer test at age 14 have joined forces to show the world that age is just a number.

Winner of the Northeast Popular Culture Association’s Peter C. Rollins Book Award (2012) Winner of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award (2012) Listening and Longing explores the emergence of music listening in the United States, from its early stages in the antebellum era, when entrepreneurs first packaged and sold the experience of hearing musical performance, to the Gilded Age, when genteel critics began to successfully redefine the cultural value of listening to music. In a series of interconnected stories, American studies scholar Daniel Cavicchi focuses on the impact of industrialization, urbanization, and commercialization in shaping practices of music audiences in America. Grounding our contemporary culture of listening in its seminal historical moment—before the iPod, stereo system, or phonograph—Cavicchi offers a fresh understanding of the role of listening in the history of music.

Das eigene Leben offen, schonungslos und radikal zum Gegenstand des Schreibens zu machen – dies ist das Konzept, zu dem sich Karl Ove Knausgård in einem furiosen Mammutprojekt entschlossen hat. Radikal ehrlich und mit unglaublicher sprachlicher Kraft nähert er sich in »Sterben«, dem ersten Roman einer sechsbändigen Serie, seinem schwierigen Verhältnis zum Vater, das ihn grundlegend geprägt hat. Als dieser stirbt und er sich mit seinem Bruder daran macht, den Nachlass zu ordnen, bietet sich beiden ein Bild des Grauens. Während sie das Haus reinigen und die Beerdigung vorbereiten, kommen Erinnerungen hoch. Nach und nach entsteht so das Porträt eines Mannes, über den sich in der Kindheit das Gleichgewicht der Familie definierte und den die beiden Söhne unsäglich zu hassen lernten. So sehr hat dieser Vater einen Schatten auf das Leben der Brüder geworfen, dass sie den Bestatter bitten, die Leiche sehen zu dürfen. Erst dann, so sind sich beide einig, werden sie glauben können, dass er wirklich tot ist. Der Sog, der von Knausgårds direkter Art des Erzählens schon mit den ersten Sätzen ausgeht, macht seinen Roman zu einer faszinierenden und erschütternden Lektüre. Gerade weil er so radikal persönlich schreibt, gewinnt sein Text eine schmerzliche Allgemeingültigkeit. Selten ist in einem Stück Literatur so greif- und fühlbar geworden, was jeder Mensch ist: ein einmaliger und unerschöpflicher innerer Kosmos.
