Rosa's animals : the story of Rosa Bonheur and her painting menagerie / Maryann Macdonald.

  • 14 November 2018
cover imagePainter and sculptor Rosa Bonheur (1822-1899) led a highly nontraditional life, especially for a woman in the nineteenth century. She kept lions as pets, was awarded the Legion of Honor by Empress Eugénie, and befriended "Buffalo Bill" Cody. She became a painter at a time when women were often only reluctantly educated as artists. Her unconventional artistic work habits, including visiting slaughterhouses to sketch animal anatomy and wearing mens clothing to gain access to places like a horse fair, where women were not allowed, helped her become one of the most beloved female painters of her time. Among the artworks discussed are The Horse Fair and Ploughing in the Nivernais.

A dream called home : a memoir / Reyna Grande.

  • 11 November 2018
cover imageFrom bestselling author Reyna Grandewhose remarkable memoir The Distance Between Us has become required reading in schools across the country comes an inspiring account of one woman's quest to find her place in America as a first-generation Latina university student and aspiring writer determined to build a new life for her family one fearless word at a time. When Reyna Grande was nine years old, she walked across the US-Mexico border in search of a home, desperate to be reunited with the parents who had left her behind years before for a better life in the City of Angels. What she found instead was an indifferent mother, an abusive, alcoholic father, and a school system that belittled her heritage. With so few resources at her disposal, Reyna finds refuge in words, and it is her love of reading and writing that propels her to rise above until she achieves the impossible and is accepted to the University of California, Santa Cruz. Although her acceptance is a triumph, the actual experience of American college life is intimidating and unfamiliar for someone like Reyna, who is now once again estranged from her family and support system. Again, she finds solace in words, holding fast to her vision of becoming a writer, only to discover she knows nothing about what it takes to make a career out of a dream. Through it all, Reyna is determined to make the impossible possible, going from undocumented immigrant of little means to "a fierce, smart, shimmering light of a writer" (Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild ); a National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist "speak[ing] for millions of immigrants whose voices have gone unheard" (Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street ); and a proud mother of two beautiful children who will never have to know the pain of poverty and neglect. Told in Reyna's exquisite, heartfelt prose, A Dream Called Home demonstrates how, by daring to pursue her dreams, Reyna was able to build the one thing she had always longed for: a home that would endure.

D-Day : the World War II invasion that changed history / by Deborah Hopkinson.

  • 8 November 2018
cover image"The WWII invasion of Allied troops into German-occupied Europe, known as D-Day, was the largest military endeavor in history. By the time it occurred on June 6, 1944, Hitler and the Axis powers had a chokehold grip on the European continent, which the Allies called "Fortress Europe." Behind enemy lines, Nazi Germany was engaged in the mass extermination of the Jewish people and the oppression of civilians across Europe. The goal of D-Day was no less than the total defeat of Hitler's regime--and the defense of free democracies everywhere. Knowing they had to breach the coast, the United States, Great Britain, and Canada planned the impossible. D-Day was an invasion not for conquest, but for liberation. The vast operation would take years to plan and required complete secrecy in order to maintain the advantage of surprise. Once deployed, Operation Overlord involved soldiers, sailors, paratroopers, and specialists, and a heart-breaking number of casualties on both sides. The major players of D-Day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and countless others, have gone down in history. Acclaimed author Deborah Hopkinson details not just their accomplishments, but the courageous contributions of commanders, service members, African-Americans, women, journalists, and others to this critical battle. Her incredible research and masterful weaving of official documents, personal and eye-witness accounts, and archival photos into a clear and compelling narrative thread brings the European arena of WWII to vivid, thrilling life."-- Provided by publisher.

Something rotten : a fresh look at roadkill / by Heather L. Montgomery ; illustrated by Kevin O'Malley.

  • 8 November 2018
cover imageWhen Heather L. Montgomery sees a rattlesnake flattened on the side of the road, her first instinct is to pick it up and dissect it--she's always wanted to see how a snake's fangs retract when they close their mouths, and it's not exactly safe to poke around in a live reptile's mouth. A wildlife researcher with a special penchant for the animals that litter the roadways, Heather isn't satisfied with dissecting just one snake. Her fascination with roadkill sets her off on a journey from her own backyard and the roadways of the American South to scientists and kids in labs and homes across the globe. From biologists who use the corpses of Tasmanian devils to investigate cures for a contagious cancer, to a scientist who discovered a whole new species of bird from a single wing left behind, to a boy rebuilding animal bodies from the bones up, to a restaurant that serves up animal remnants, Heather discovers that death is just the beginning for these creatures. This engaging narrative nonfiction is an eye-opening and irreverent look at the dead and dying animals that we pass by without a second thought--as well as a fascinating insight to the scientific research process. -- Publisher's description.

  • 6 November 2018

Mary Losure's riveting narrative nonfiction account of Isaac's early life traces his development as a thinker from his childhood, in friendly prose that will capture the attention of today's budding scientists--as if by magic.-- Source other than Library of Congress.

Fault lines in the Constitution : the framers, their fights, and the flaws that affect us today / written by Cynthia Levinson and Sanford Levinson.

  • 6 November 2018
cover imageGridlock! Gerrymandering! The Electoral college! How did our government get so complicated? As it turns out, many of the issues we struggle with today have their roots in the creation of the United States Constitution. Husband-and-wife team Cynthis Levinson and Sanford Levinson take us back to the beginnings of this document and show how these fault lines were first introduced - and how their unintended consequences continue to affect us today. The Framers of the Constitution, they remind us, faced many of the same challenges and disputes that we do in the twenty-first century. Sometimes there was conflict, sometimes compromise - and the Framers met most of the challenges with great skill and foresight. Some issues, however, were just too complex or controversial to settle in such a brief time. Today we are still suffering from the consequences of disputes and decisions made in an overheated room in 1787, as a new form of government for our country was being created. -- from dust jacket.

Alice Paul and the fight for women's rights : from the vote to the Equal Rights Amendment / Deborah Kops.

  • 5 November 2018
cover imageHere is the story of leader Alice Paul, from the women's suffrage movement -- the long struggle for votes for women -- to the "second wave," when women demanded full equality with men. Paul made a significant impact on both. She reignited the sleepy suffrage moment with dramatic demonstrations and provocative banners. After women won the right to vote in 1920, Paul wrote the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), which would make all the laws that discriminated against women unconstitutional. Passage of the ERA became the rallying cry of a new movement of young women in the 1960s and '70s. Paul saw another chance to advance women's rights when the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 began moving through Congress. She set in motion the "sex amendment," which remains a crucial legal tool for helping women fight discrimination in the workplace. Includes archival images, author's note, bibliography, and source notes.
