This is a story about that special someone: the one you trust, the one you can't live without.  For Ted Flask, that someone special is his aging companion Lily, who happens to be a dog.  Lily and the Octopus reminds us how it feels to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go, and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all.

   10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Thursday Morning Book DiscussionThe Plot Against America by Philip Roth (Rm 4/5)  
    Contact: Reference Staff   732-431-7220 Ext 722   
   

"What if" scenarios are often suspect. They are sometimes thinly veiled tales of the gospel according to the author, taking on the claustrophobic air of a personal fantasia that can't be shared. Such is not the case with Philip Roth's tour de force, The Plot Against America. It is a credible, fully-realized picture of what could happen anywhere, at any time, if the right people and circumstances come together.

The Plot Against America explores a wholly imagined thesis and sees it through to the end: Charles A. Lindbergh defeats FDR for the Presidency in 1940. Lindbergh, the "Lone Eagle," captured the country's imagination by his solo Atlantic crossing in 1927 in the monoplane, Spirit of St. Louis, then had the country's sympathy upon the kidnapping and murder of his young son. He was a true American hero: brave, modest, handsome, a patriot. According to some reliable sources, he was also a rabid isolationist, Nazi sympathizer, and a crypto-fascist. It is these latter attributes of Lindbergh that inform the novel.

One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus

One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. The covert and controversial "Brides for Indians" program, launched by the administration of Ulysses S. Grant, is intended to help assimilate the Indians into the white man's world.  Toward that end May and her friends embark upon the adventure of their lifetime.  Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time.

As England becomes enmeshed in the early days of World War II and the men are away fighting, the women of Chilbury village forge an uncommon bond.

We come to know the home-front struggles of five unforgettable choir members: a timid widow devastated when her only son goes to fight; the older daughter of a local scion drawn to a mysterious artist; her younger sister pining over an impossible crush; a Jewish refugee from Czechoslovakia hiding a family secret; and a conniving midwife plotting to outrun her seedy past.

   10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Thursday Morning Book Discussion History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund  
    Contact:    732-431-7220 Ext 722   
   

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund is exactly the kind of book you want to curl up with in the winter. It’s propulsive, vividly written, laced with a razor’s chill and filled with imagery that’s impossible to forget. There is a constant sense of foreboding, of wondering when the truth will crash through the Minnesota ice. Linda is a loner, a teenage girl who walks to school and lives on a failed commune in the woods. But her life of solitude cracks open when her history teacher—whom she fantasizes about—is charged with child pornography. Outside of school, Linda begins to spend time with a young boy and his mother who moved into a house across the lake, but their family, like her teacher, are not as they appear. Fridlund masterfully ratchets up the tension, exploding this story of secrets and girlhood with crisp, cutting prose that will leave you shocked and in awe. A remarkable novel, that just so happens to be a debut, by a fiercely talented writer. --Al Woodworth, The Amazon Book Review

    Contact:    732-431-7220 X7222   
   

Author.Dr. Jeffrey Sammons and co-author John H. Morrow, Jr. have written the book that is the definitive study of the 369th. Though discussed in numerous histories and featured in popular culture (most famously the film Stormy Weather and the novel Jazz), the 369th has become more a matter of mythology than accurate history. Their book tells the full story of the self-proclaimed Harlem Rattlers also popular known as the Harlem Hellfighters. Combining the "fighting focus" of military history with the insights of social commentary, Harlem's Rattlers and the Great War reveals the centrality of military service and war to the quest for equality as it details the origins, evolution, combat exploits, and postwar struggles of the 369th.

Jeffrey T. Sammons is professor in the Department of History at New York University and the author of Beyond the Ring: The Role of Boxing in American Society.  Dr. Sammons earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Rutgers College in 1971. He received his Master's degree in history from Tufts University with his Master's degree in history and earned his  Ph.D. in American History from the University of North Carolina.

On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Snyder

Join us for the first meeting of our new History Book Discussion.  At the first meeting we will be discussing On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder.  

The Founding Fathers tried to protect us from the threat they knew, the tyranny that overcame ancient democracy. Today, our political order faces new threats, not unlike the totalitarianism of the twentieth century. We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism.  Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience.  Timothy Snyder addresses these threats in this New York Times bestseller.

This Book Discussion is moderated by Paul Zigo of the World War II Era Studies Institute.

My Father’s Paradise: A  Son’s Search for His Family’s Past by Ariel Sabar
In a remote corner of the world, forgotten for nearly three thousand years, lived an enclave of Kurdish Jews so isolated that they still spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus. To these descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel, Yona Sabar was born.  Yona's son Ariel grew up in Los Angeles, where Yona had become an esteemed professor. Ariel wanted nothing to do with his father's strange immigrant heritage-until he had a son of his own. Ariel Sabar brings to life the ancient town of Zakho, discovering his family's place in the sweeping saga of Middle-Eastern history. This powerful book is an improbable story of tolerance and hope set in what today is the very center of the world's attention.
