'Welcome to Leith' is a feature documentary chronicling the attempted takeover of a small town in North Dakota by notorious white supremacist Craig Cobb. Filmed in the days leading up to Cobb's arrest for terrorizing the townspeople on an armed patrol and his subsequent release from jail six months later, the film is an eerie document of American DIY ideals.

New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance's path to publication has been a lifetime endeavor. Disinterested editors, a husband who declared he was the only writer in the family, and even a creative writing professor who refused to allow women into his program all stood in J. A. Jance's way. But none of it stopped her from going on to publish 24 books, and she continues writing today. Of writing, she says: "One of the wonderful things about being a writer is that everything–even the bad stuff–is usable. The eighteen years I spent while married to an alcoholic have helped shape the experience and character of Detective J. P. Beaumont. My experiences as a single parent have gone into the background for Joanna Brady–including her first tentative steps toward a new life after the devastation of losing her husband in Desert Heat. ? And then there’s the evil creative writing professor in Hour of the Hunter and Kiss of the Bees, but that’s another story."
