FINDING BEAUTY IN A BROKEN WORLD
By Terry Tempest Williams / Pantheon Books
“Renaissance art, endangered prairie dogs and Rwandan genocide are the compelling triptych in Terry Tempest Williams’ quest to piece together the shards of a fractured and fractious world and find meaning within the broken bits.... In prose by turns elegant and colloquial, poetic and passionate, Williams takes us to worlds we would never otherwise see....”
VICTORIA A. BROWNSWORTH, The Baltimore Sun

HITLER’S EMPIRE: How the Nazis Ruled Europe
By Mark Mazower / Penguin Press
“[I]n ‘Hitler’s Empire,’ Columbia University historian Mark Mazower spells out how ill-prepared the Germans were for their string of early victories – and how completely they botched the administration of their empire.”
ANDREW NAGORSKI, The Washington Post

THE BRASS VERDICT
By John Connelly / Penguin Press
“Connelly’s skills at melding plot, character and scenery into a cohesive unit shine in this book. The Brass Verdict is gold.”
OLINE H. COGDILL, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
