RussC, August 6, 2012

Crazy Brave is a memoir written by Joy Harjo. It is a powerful beautifully told story of her journey to become the poet we know her as today.

My Song: A Memoir by Harry Belafonte
My Song: A Memoir

RussC, January 2, 2012

What a fascinating, compelling memoir! Harry Belafonte has and is living a life in which he gives so much of himself at an enormous personal cost to the civil rights movement, political activism and other social causes. Mr. Belafonte is so much more than the surface image of a popular singer and entertainer that most people have regarding the man. A must read about an extraordinary man.

The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr
The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains

RussC, September 18, 2011

The Shallows should be required reading for anyone who cares about the future. Nicholas Carr began by posing a straight forward question: "Is Google making us stupid?" The Shallows explores what the internet is doing to our brains. The findings are beyond scary. Carr thoroughly researched his material and writes in a compelling style. The book should be read and discussed by parents, teachers, politicians and the public in general. Once read, a person will no longer be able to view the internet or other modern communication technology the same way. One of the most important books published in the past few years.

Mink River by Brian Doyle
Mink River

RussC, January 1, 2011

Brian Doyle in his unique and lyrical voice tells a story of a town and its people. All of humanity is on display; the good, the bad and the ugly. The people, their stories, their emotions all ring true and make one believe in this small town on the coast of Oregon. Beautifully written; it tugs at one's heart strings.
