Marjory Saves the Everglades

By Sandra Neil Wallace (Keene, NH)

From acclaimed children’s book biographer Sandra Neil Wallace comes the inspiring and little-known story of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the remarkable journalist who saved the Florida Everglades from development and ruin. Marjory Stoneman Douglas hardly recognized the Everglades when she returned to Florida from World War I. The Florida that Marjory knew was rapidly disappearing — the rare orchids, magnificent birds, and massive trees disappearing with it — she had to do something. Thanks to Marjory, a part of the Everglades became the first national park created not for sightseeing, but for the benefit of animals and plants.

Ring On Deli

By Eric Giroux (Massachusetts)
 
A hilarious debut novel about supermarkets and democracy. Every day's the same at Bounty Bag's deli, and that's just how Ray Markham likes it. But when Ray's store erupts in protest, he's forced to take a side. Kirkus Reviews writes, "Giroux's prose is reminiscent of Richard Russo's writing, intricate and incisive but always full of warmth and humor... a well-balanced comic tale that deftly grapples with larger contemporary themes."

Into the Clouds

By Tod Olson (Middlesex, VT)

For Houston, reaching the top is a lifelong dream, an obsession that began 15 years earlier on his first expedition there. Between Houston’s two attempts, another American expedition ended in disaster. Carefully researched and packed with historical photos, Into the Clouds takes readers on a heart-stopping journey made all the more astonishing because it's true.
