Featured Books

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Book No: DB 84054

Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children: Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere... else. But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children. Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back. Nancy's arrival marks a change at the Home. There's a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it's up to Nancy to get to the heart of things.

The Candy Bombers: The Untold Story of the Berlin Airlift and America's Finest Hour by Andrei Cherny

Book No: DB 67272

Intent on furthering its domination of Europe, the Soviet Union cut off all access to West Berlin, prepared to starve the city into submission unless the Americans abandoned it. Soviet forces hugely outnumbered the Allies', and most of America's top officials considered the situation hopeless.  But a group of unlikely men improvised and stumbled their way into a uniquely American combination of military and moral force unprecedented in its time.

Milk!: A 10,000-Year Food Fracas by Mark Kurlansky

Book No: DB 92381

Humans have cultivated the milk of other mammals ever since the domestication of animals more than 10,000 years ago. Today, milk is a test case in the most pressing issues in food politics, from industrial farming and animal rights to GMOs, the locavore movement and advocates for raw milk, who controversially reject pasteurisation. Tracing the liquid's diverse history from antiquity to the present, "Milk!" details its curious and crucial role in cultural evolution, religion, nutrition, politics, and economics.
