WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When Williamstown author Ali Benjamin started thinking about a follow-up to her 2015 middle-grade novel "The Thing About Jellyfish," she struggled to find the right topic and the right tone. 

"Jellyfish," while a beautiful story about a young girl's journey of self-discovery, is, after all, a story about the death of a child. Benjamin had planned her next book around the issue of gun violence, but in the years following the release of "Jellyfish," real life seemed too dark in many ways to pick another tough topic.

"I finally said to my editor, 'I don't think I can do the book we have been talking about,'

@theMarket: Earnings Season Cause Markets to Surge
By Bill Schmick,
04:48PM / Friday, April 12, 2019
After a week of low volume consolidation, all three averages broke higher on Friday. The bulls are still in charge and seem determined to push stocks back to their all-time highs.   A trigger could be this year's first quarter earnings season, which is upon us, some of the multi-center banks reported today.

That won't be too difficult to do given that earnings estimates have been down-graded not once, but twice, over the last three months.   Overall, the Street is expecting companies that comprise the S&P 500 Index to report a decline in
