Bookcover: The Immortal Life of Henrietta LacksHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
by Rebecca Skloot

Recommended by: Joseph
Henrietta was a poor black woman living outside Baltimore at the time she discovered she had terminal cancer in 1951. When one of her doctors was able to keep her cancer cells (now known as HeLa cells) alive and growing indefinitely in the laboratory, it was one of the most important discoveries of modern oncology. But who was this woman who had unknowingly contributed so much to science at the moment of her death? Skloot expertly uncovers the mystery of the face behind the cells.

Bookcover: Light of the World
<br />Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book:
Light of the World: The Pope, The Church, and the Signs of the Times
by Benedict XVI and Peter Seewald


Recommended by: Joseph
This lengthy interview with the Pope is really good, and I'm not Catholic. The translation from the German is a little awkward in places and a basic knowledge of Catholic vocabulary helps, but overall it offers a great insight into the personality and faith of the man who has lead the world's 1.2 billion Catholics. Out of the two books I've read about him (the other being The Rise of Benedict XVI), this one was better.

Bookcover: The Dark is RisingHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
Recommended by: Becky
"The Dark is Rising" (first published in 1973) is one of my favorite childrens novels. Will Stanton, the youngest of 9 children, learns on his 11th birthday that he is one of the Old Ones  people who have special abilities, can travel through time, and who fight the darkness which is trying to take over the world. This is a beautifully written, remarkable fantasy novel that I enjoy re-reading every winter.
