New in the Scheyer Library
~ Jessie McAbee
Did you attend Carrie Newcomer’s concert last month? Were you moved by the poem about her mother?
You can read more in two books of her poems, essays and lyrics, The Beautiful Not Yet and A Permeable Life.
You Failed Us
Azure Savage writes about their experiences attending Seattle Public Schools as one of the few students of color in the Highly Capable Cohort program in You Failed Us. This is a voice and story we need to hear. Azure is currently a senior at Garfield and a Running Start student at Seattle Central College.
If you’ve never read the graphic biography, Maus, about Art Spiegelman’s father’s experiences during the Holocaust in Poland, this book will offer a new perspective. I am not usually a fan of graphica, but I found Maus very compelling.
For fans of L.M. Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables, we have recently acquired several of her lesser known novels, including The Blue Castle, Kilmeny of the Orchard, and Pat of Silver Bush.
Magic Tree House
And for younger readers, Felix Blythe-Braun has donated several Magic Tree House books, including Summer of the Sea Serpent and Christmas in Camelot.
