There's a new title in the DC Icons series!  In this thrilling origin story of Black Canary, Dinah Lance's voice is her weapon. And in a near-future world where women have no rights, she won't hesitate to use everything she has--including her song--to fight back.

Why do we only promote scary stuff during October?  If you ask me, the dark and cold isolation of winter is better suited for appreciating a good scare.  That's why I saved this Podcast Break for now.  This playlist is perfect for folks who like horror, from a bit spooky to truly terrifying.

Here's another book-related New Year's Resolution idea for you!  Set a goal to diversify your reading.  Not by genre (mystery, fantasy) or format (graphic novel, narrative nonfiction).  Do it with diversity and inclusion in mind.

In August 2014, the Youth Department staff started participating in Reading Wildly, an initiative to help us broaden our reading horizons.  This is both for our own benefit and to help us better serve our reading public.  At first, we focused on a different genre each month.  But, beginning in 2018, we revamped it to a Bingo-style card with 20 different reading challenges.  This year, one of the squares encouraged us to read books with Jewish characters.  Many of these titles focus on the Holocaust, but there are also a rising number that talk about the current experiences of Jewish youth in the United States.  I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to share all of the great Jewish literature that has been published in 2020 since the Jewish holiday Hanukkah begins at sundown this evening, December 10, 2020.

Discover the dark side of Charles LIndbergh in this riveting biography.  It is no exaggeration to say that I could NOT PUT IT DOWN!  And it has received six starred reviews, people.  SIX!  And it has been named a finalist for the 2021 Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults Award.

The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh by Candace Fleming (Feb 2020)
First human to cross the Atlantic via airplane; one of the first American media sensations; Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite; loner whose baby was kidnapped and murdered; champion of Eugenics, the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding; tireless environmentalist. Charles Lindbergh was all of the above and more.
