The Orphan Keeper Hardcover Edition – September 6, 2016 by Camron Wright


Seven-year-old Chellamuthu’s life is forever changed when he is kidnapped from his village in India, sold to a Christian orphanage, and then adopted by an unsuspecting couple in the United States. It takes months before the boy can speak enough English to tell his parents that he already has a family back in India. Horrified, they try their best to track down his Indian family, but all avenues lead to dead ends. Meanwhile, they simply love him, change his name to Taj, enroll him in school, make him part of their family-and his story might have ended there had it not been for the pestering questions in his head: Who am I? Why was I taken? How do I get home? More than a decade later, Taj meets Priya, a girl from southern India with surprising ties to his past. Is she the key to unveil the secrets of his childhood or is it too late? And if he does make it back to India, how will he find his family with so few clues? From the best-selling author of The Rent Collector, this is a deeply moving and gripping journey of discovering one’s self and the unbreakable family bonds that connect us forever. About the Author: Camron Wright holds a master’s degree in writing and public relations. He says he began writing to get out of attending MBA school, and it proved the better decision. His first book, Letters for Emily, was a Readers’ Choice award winner, as well as a selection of the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild. Camron’s next book, The Rent Collector, was a nominee for the prestigious International DUBLIN Literary Award, Book of the Year Gold Award from Foreword Reviews, and Whitney Awards Best Novel of the Year.

Project Lives


For a generation, tabloids, television, and Hollywood have defined the public image of New Yorkers who live in the city?s 334 housing projects. Focusing on crime, disrepair, and other ills that afflict these islands of red brick, such portrayals ironically have made it all too easy for government to reduce the support these projects have relied on since their birth some eighty years ago. And so conditions worsen further yet, as the buildings try to soldier on past their useful life, at times crumbling around the 400,000+ tenants. What if these New Yorkers had the tools and training to document their own lives? And the opportunity to share the result?Project Lives takes you on a remarkable journey into a world turned inside out, where the camera?s subject becomes the storyteller. Participatory photography?of which this collection marks one of the largest efforts anywhere?approaches a new visual medium, a universal language speaking across borders and cultures. By using their single-use film cameras as a window into the heart of the projects and a creative instrument of hope, the courageous souls who set out on a daunting mission’to change how their neighbors, friends, relations, and very lives are viewed by America?may accomplish more than helping preserve their homes. George Carrano, Chelsea Davis, and Jonathan Fisher bring you a unique experience of a city within a city. All royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to resident programs at the New York City Housing Authority.
