Come Fly with Me

By Julie T. I’m a casual birder, taking enjoyment in Dark-eyed Juncos dancing along suburban sidewalks, skies filled with crows en route to Bothell, and squadrons of brown pelicans soaring over rocky ocean outcroppings. On a recent morning over coffee, my mother-in-law identified birds flitting about the blackberry brambles across the street from her house. […]

Disease and Medicine in History

by Jennifer K. I love a good disease book. What (you may ask) makes a good disease book? First of all, I want to learn what the disease does to the human body.

LibraryReads List March 2018

By Emily Z. In the land of LibraryReads, March appears to be a month for a little madness, or at least, some psychologically intriguing thrillers and realistic fictional dramas filled with twists and trials.

A Day in the life.

by Grant P. Daniel Day-Lewis recently announced he was retiring from acting, which was greeted with much sadness and an academy award nomination.
