A few recent and upcoming additions to our shelves:
The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth
On 12/4 at 9am ET, Sam Quinones describes how we are now in a Synthetic Drug Era with a new generation of kingpins whose product could be made in Magic Bullet blenders. With these more potent substances now available, yesteryear’s myths about illegal drugs are coming true- one hit of `heroin’ or a line of coke has killed many people, meth does turn people mentally ill, and pot sends people to emergency rooms with psychotic episodes.
American Comics: A History
On 11/28 at 9am ET, from the Civil War to modern graphic novels, author Jeremy Dauber presents a case for understanding how America sees itself through whose stories comics tell as it chronicles the last 150 years of American history through the lens of its comic strips, political cartoons, superheroes, graphic novels, and more.
Crusader: John Cobb’s Ill-Fated Quest for Speed on Water
On 11/28 at 8am ET, in Steve Holter’s gripping account, including extensive use of period documentation, "Crusader" tells the tale of a Speed King's tragic destiny, and includes vigorous analysis of the causes of Crusader’s crash at over 200 mph.
Lady Editor: Sarah Josepha Hale and the Making of the Modern American Woman
On 11/21 at 9am ET, author Melanie Kirkpatrick re-creates the life of a major nineteenth-century woman, whose career as a writer, editor, and early feminist encompassed ideas central to American history. Hale’s contributions include- promoting women’s right to an education, to work, and to manage their own money, penning “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” and re-imagining Thanksgiving as the patriotic national holiday that we now know.
