Goodnight, Irene
by Luis Alberto Urrea

View in Library Catalog

Did you ever hear of the Donut Dollies ? These women were part of the Red Cross during WWII. The novel follows Irene and Dorothy during their jobs as Donut Dollies. Their lives intersect with the horror of war. Friendships, loves, and duty frame this novel based on the true story of the author's mother, Irene. This is a work of fiction worth reading because history has forgotten these women.

The Power of Fun
by Catherine Price

View in Library Catalog

The New York Times refers to author Catherine Price as "the Marie Kondo of Brains." She is an award winning science journalist and speaker and author. I selected this book only based on the title. Here it is summer, I see kids having fun in every park I pass, and I am over "adulting" in a culture demanding high performance every minute of every day. I thought I would just scan chapters and pick and choose my activities. You will be drawn into this book very quickly. The author is skilled at presenting ideas based on science to have feel alive again and have fun in many ways. Loved the book!
