Friends’ president, Clara-Rae Genser said “the best book I have read this summer is David McCollough’s 1776. The Revolutionary War as we never have seen it. Stirring, exciting, heart breaking, real. I couldn’t put it down.”
Friends’ Vice-President Ann Jennings suggests Crashing Through, A True Story about Risk, Adventure and the Man Who Dared to See, by Robert Kurson. “This is the story of Mike May who was blinded in an accident at age 3. Through the marvels of modern medicine his vision was restored when he was in his 40’s. It is a fascinating story —not at all what a sighted person would expect. The science of vision was an eye opener (no pun intended!).”
Next week – Albany High School Librarian, Rosalie Gonzales’ favorite book of the summer.
