New Titles in the Library

Stop by the library to review some of the new books recently added to our library collection: 

The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee – Native America from 1890 to the Present by David Treuer 

“This book is adamantly, unashamedly, about Indian life rather than Indian death.” (from the Prologue) 

“Treuer is an easy companion: thoughtful, provocative and challenging. He tells a disturbing yet heroic story that may very well be seen as a definition of ‘American exceptionalism.’” (–Paul Andrew Hutton, The Washington Post

A Pilgrimage to Eternity—From Canterbury to Rome in Search of a Faith by Timothy Egan 

“If you’re looking for something to believe in, you could do worse than Timothy Egan’s particular blend of intelligence and empathy. In his ninth book, A Pilgrimage to Eternity, this self-described ‘lapsed but listening’ Irish Catholic makes the 1,200-mile journey from Canterbury to Rome along the Via Francigena…as he attempts to decide what he believes. If this book doesn’t quite settle the question of belief for you, it will at least fortify your faith in scrupulous reporting and captivating storytelling… Reading it, you feel yourself in the presence of goodness — the kind you might simply have to decide to believe in.” (–Matthew Thomas, New York Times

Down Girl—The Logic of Misogyny by Kate Manne 

“Despite its somber topic, Kate Manne’s Down Girl made me very happy, exhilarated indeed by its insight, analytical clarity, and committed engagement with a major issue of justice.” (Martha Nussbaum, Univ. of Chicago) 

Why Buddhism Is True by Robert Wright 

“…a readable, lucid explanation of Buddhism by a tough-minded, skeptical intellect…a scientific and spiritual voyage.” (–Martin Seligman, professor of psychology Univ. of Pennsylvania) 

As with all of our books, these volumes are available for loan. Please stop by the library to explore and browse among our wonderful collection!
