Franken is an excellent raconteur in this entertaining but highly informative memoir of his political journey to the U.S. Senate.  Providing an account of his excruciatingly drawn out contested run-off election and a sneak peak into the inner workings of government, this funny man shows he is deadly serious about politics, Ted Cruz and Minnesota. Franken for 2020!

The first in a new series of the Chronicles of St Mary. I could dismiss this as "Connie Willis lite" but it's such wild engaging fun that the comparison doesn't matter.  A time traveling adventure full of mad brave historians, some romance and a few laughs thrown in; it deserves to be a huge hit and your new addiction.

Rash's poetic roots are clearly visible in this excellent novel of conflict and land misuse in a tight-knit Appalachian community.  A well crafted plot combined with gorgeously rich nature writing, makes this a satisfying read in many different ways.  A good book for book groups.
