Donald Miller is a biographer and historian and is the John Henry MacCracken Professor of History at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania.  He is also a New York Times bestselling author of seven books, and one of the most respected authorities on World War II and U.S history.  His talk will focus on his bestselling book, Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany, which is soon to be an HBO series.  Masters of the Air is the deeply personal story of the American bomber boys in World War II who brought the war to Hitler’s doorstep. With the narrative power of fiction, Miller takes you on a harrowing ride through the fire-filled skies over Berlin, Hanover, and Dresden and describes the terrible cost of bombing for the German people. Masters of the Air will be available for purchase and signing by the author.

The Friends of the Library District host a Comic Book Sale at the Book Store. Today is the second of four days. Approximately 5,000 high-grade condition comic books from the late 1970’s through the last decade will be available to comic book collectors and aficionados. These are bagged and boarded issues of superhero titles from Marvel Comics, DC Comics and independent publishers that were donated to the Friends by a private collector. The comic books are grouped by series title, such as “X-Men,” “Suicide Squad”, etc., and are in sealed bags, with descriptive labels and firm prices. Prices range from $3 to $40-50 or more per pack. Some 300 loose single copies will also be available for $1 each. Higher priced packs contain comics that are more desirable to collectors. The lots are priced well below collector guide values, according to the sale’s guest curator Richard Pini, co-creator with his wife Wendy Pini of the fantasy comic book series “Elfquest.”

The Bookstore is behind the library at 141 Boardman Road in Poughkeepsie.

The Friends of the Library District host a Comic Book Sale at the Book Store. Today is the last of four days; supplies may be limited. Approximately 5,000 high-grade condition comic books from the late 1970’s through the last decade will be available to comic book collectors and aficionados. These are bagged and boarded issues of superhero titles from Marvel Comics, DC Comics and independent publishers that were donated to the Friends by a private collector. The comic books are grouped by series title, such as “X-Men,” “Suicide Squad”, etc., and are in sealed bags, with descriptive labels and firm prices. Prices range from $3 to $40-50 or more per pack. Some 300 loose single copies will also be available for $1 each. Higher priced packs contain comics that are more desirable to collectors. The lots are priced well below collector guide values, according to the sale’s guest curator Richard Pini, co-creator with his wife Wendy Pini of the fantasy comic book series “Elfquest.”

The Bookstore is behind the library at 141 Boardman Road in Poughkeepsie.

Women have been rabbis for over forty years. No longer are women rabbis a unique phenomenon, rather they are part of the fabric of Jewish life. In The Sacred Calling: Four Decades of Women in the Rabbinate, rabbis and scholars from across the Jewish world reflect back on the historic significance of women in the rabbinate and explore issues related to both the professional and personal lives of women rabbis. This collection examines the ways in which the reality of women in the rabbinate has impacted on all aspects of Jewish life, including congregational culture, liturgical development, life cycle ritual, the Jewish healing movement, spirituality, theology, and more. This event will feature a conversation with three women rabbis in our community, each from a different community and a different denomination, led by Rabbi Alysa Mendelson, co-editor of this anthology.

Garry Kasparov has been a vocal critic of Putin for over a decade, even leading the pro-democracy opposition to him in the farcical 2008 presidential election.  As Putin has grown ever more powerful, the threat he poses has grown from local to regional and finally to global. In this urgent book, Kasparov shows that the collapse of the Soviet Union was not an endpoint — only a change of seasons, as the Cold War melted into a new spring.  But now, after years of complacency and poor judgment, winter is once again upon us.
