Bookcover: The Aeneid
<br />Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Aeneid
by Virgil, translated by Robert Fitzgerald

Recommended by: Joseph
How do you review a true classic? Virgil's Aenied, written around 25 BC, is the epic tale of the founding of the Roman empire. In beautifully descriptive language, Virgil (and Fitzgerald as his able translator from the Latin) tells the story of Aeneas, a refugee from the fall of Troy, who famously follows his fate ordained by the gods through violent storms in the Mediterranean, a passionate love affair in North Africa, a haunting visit to the underworld, and victory on the Italian peninsula after several shockingly brutal battles.

Bookcover: Polar Dream: The First Solo Expedition by a Woman and Her Dog to the Magnetic North PoleHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Polar Dream: The First Solo Expedition by a Woman and Her Dog to the Magnetic North Pole
 by Helen Thayer

Recommended by: Melanie
In 1988, at the age of 50, Helen Thayer became the first woman in the world to travel on foot to the magnetic North Pole. Her only companion was Charlie, her loyal husky, who was integral to her survival. This is the story of their heroic trek and extraordinary relationship as they faced polar bears, unimaginable cold, and a storm that destroyed most of their supplies and food. I first read this many years ago and still think of it often. I am inspired by her courage and determination.

Bookcover: 26 rounds for kellyHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: 26 Rounds for Kelly
by Brent Weaver

Recommended by: Debbie
Why does God let bad things happen to good people?  Diagnosed with a rare bone cancer at the age of 27, Brent Weaver shares the insights he gained into this universal question as he talks about the physical, spiritual, and emotional struggles he endured during his 2 1/2 year battle. In the end, his goal was to stay alive long enough to finish this book.  He felt strongly that by sharing his story and describing the things that he learned, his words might bring comfort to others facing the life-shattering experience of cancer. Brent was my cousin, so naturally I am biased, but I do believe that this book can bring the comfort he hoped it would, as well as a better understanding of what cancer patients really go through.
