Look! You're Dancing
A memoir of dogs, dance and devotion
In Joyce A. Miller’s memoir, Look! You’re Dancing, she enters two worlds when she adopts a retired racing greyhound and decides to do canine freestyle, or dog dancing. Miller had a less than ideal childhood and felt she was an imposter for most of her life, not fitting in anywhere. When she worked with the greyhound adoption group and helped the sleek racers find their forever homes, she felt fulfilled. And when she started dancing, first with her greyhound and then tap dancing with a group of friends, she felt she finally found true friendship and a safe place that brought out the best in her. Look! You’re Dancing explores the unique bond between a hound and a human and how something as simple as a dance enriches both lives.

Joe Harris, the Moon
A dream to play baseball in the World Series and the determination to get there.
Joe Harris’ journey begins in the coal mines of southwestern Pennsylvania at the beginning of the Twentieth Century. Recruited by professional baseball scouts to play first base in the minor leagues, Joe gets his nickname, “the Moon,” and his big break to play for the Cleveland Indians. Playing in the major leagues is cut short by the First World War, where Joe is severely injured in an ambulance accident. When Joe returns from Europe and leaves the Indians to play in an “outlaw league,” he’s given a second chance to play organized baseball. Determined to realize his dream, Joe bats for the Pittsburgh Pirates against Babe Ruth’s New York Yankees in the 1927 World Series.
Will Joe’s injuries from the war intertwined with the financial problems of the Depression compel him to retire from baseball?
