In this, the first in-depth study of the most American of holidays, James Baker sweeps away lingering myths and misconceptions to show how this celebration day was born and grew to be an essential part of our national spirit. Thanksgiving: The Biography of an American Holiday opens with an overview of the popular mythos of the holiday before discussing its possible religious and cultural precedents. This classic Yankee holiday is examined in historical and contemporary detail that embraces everything from proclamations, sermons, and local and regional traditions to family reunions, turkey dinners, and recipes. Thanksgiving's evolving face is illustrated with charming and often revealing period prints that chart our changing attitudes: the influence of Victorian sentiment in Thanksgiving's development, Progressive utilitarianism, intellectual “debunking,” patriotic wartime reclamation, and 1960s-era protest. Thanksgiving remains controversial up to the present day, as Mayflower descendants, Native Americans, and commercial exploiters compete for the American public's opinion of the holiday's contemporary significance and its future status. This is an intelligent and illuminating introduction to a beloved holiday and a fascinating cultural history of America and Americana.

Matt Doeden: Malala Yousafzai - Shot by the Taliban, Still Fighting for Equal Education
On October 9, 2012, Malala Yousafzai was on her way home from school in Swat Valley, Pakistan, when she was shot in the head by members of the Taliban. Though she was only fifteen years old, the Taliban targeted her because she wrote blog posts and appeared on television defending girls'right to education in Pakistan. Malala survived the attack and went on to write a book, earn a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, and meet President Barack Obama. She has become the face of the campaign for universal education and has inspired students worldwide to value their right to go to school. Malala was well known before the attack due to her outspoken support of education, but her near death catapulted her to international recognition. Now Malala lives in the United Kingdom, gives interviews, and attends school. She also continues to receive threats from the Taliban. Read more about Malala's childhood, what she has done after surviving the Taliban attack, and why she thinks education should be available for all children everywhere.

Paul Rasmussen is a young ethnographer and academic recovering from prostate cancer. Broken, he retreats to the remote forests and towns of the Immitoin Valley. As an outsider, he discovers how difficult it is to know a place, let alone become a part of it. Then, a drowned man and a series of encounters with the locals force him to confront the valley's troubled past and his own uncertain future. As Paul turns his attention to the families displaced forty years earlier by the flooding of the valley to create a hydroelectric dam, his desire to reinvent himself runs up against the bitter emotions and mysterious connections that linger in the community in the aftermath of the flood.An original debut novel that is meditative, raw, and exuberant in tone, Aaron Shepard's When is a Man offers a fresh perspective on landscape and masculinity.
