The long season of rain by Helen Kim( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first-person novel is a devastatingly clear-eyed view of societal restrictions & their effects on the young narrator's family in 1960s Seoul. When an orphan boy comes to live with her family, eleven-year-old Junehee begins to realize that the demands placed on Korean women can destroy their lives. Junehee Lee lives in Seoul in a house full of women: three sisters, a busybody grandmother, and, always, everywhere, her mother. Her father spends much of his time in America working for the army--or out drinking with friends. When an orphaned boy comes to stay with the Lees, all the carefully balanced conflicts in the family erupt. Filled with closely observed details of Korean life, The Long Season of Rain is an unforgettable coming-of-age saga of great power
Working across generations : defining the future of nonprofit leadership by Frances Kunreuther( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Working Across Generations offers those working in and affiliated with nonprofit groups the opportunity to think ahead and to proceed thoughtfully during this turbulent period of change. It presents a comprehensive look at the leadership transition and generational shift that the nonprofit sector faces and gives readers practical advice on how they can prepare for this inevitable shift in healthy ways." "The authors provide a range of ideas on how to approach generational shifts in leadership so that the contributions of long-time leaders are valued, new and younger leaders' talent is recognized, and groups are better prepared to work across generational divides. Giving context to these differences, they explore the current assumptions about the upcoming transition between generations in the social sector; introduce new ideas or frames for thinking about generational leadership change; and examine how this change poses individual, organizational, and systemic challenges for those in the social sector. The book concludes with critical advice on how to communicate across generations and key recommendations for future research and action."--BOOK JACKET
