“The latest volume of 28 short stories in O’Hara’s Comedie Humaine, from one the most penetrating observers of the contemporary scene. So much sheer life, so many stunning portraits, so much shrewdness paislyborderand raw power” (from the critics, back in the day…).

9. Candy by Terry Southern / Sex / (I-Share)

All about Candy’s thesis which is based on her experiences: “to give of one’s self…is a thrilling privilege.” Simultaneously described, back in 1964, as pornography, burlesque, farce, satire… and just plain funny. Candy’s “no, no” to a psychiatrist, a hunchback, a yogi…just might mean “yes, yes.”

10. This Rough Magic by Mary Stewart / Suspense / (I-Share)

Sound familiar?

Armchair Travel – Fiction

Posted on October 27th, 2014

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” – Augustine of Hippo

During the summer of 2014 the Booth atrium displayed a list of 40 travel novels curated by Library Operations Associate Deborah Fennema. Most of the novels were displayed atop the “Read and Relax” bookshelf and next to each was a small stand filled with several beautifully designed bookmarks for each title. Each bookmark features the title, author, Booth Library call number and a brief synopsis of the story. Too lovely to be here and then gone for good, we’ve decided to make the bookmarks available to print and cut yourself. Attached here is a pdf file listing every book that was part of the Armchair Travel fiction display. Some examples of the selected books and synopses are listed below.2014 ARMCHAIR TRAVEL - FICTION-6

Revolutionary Decade: Reflections on the 1960s

Posted on October 25th, 2014

1960s-web-button

Area residents are encouraged to take a step back in time and experience “Revolutionary Decade: Reflections on the 1960s.” Booth Library will sponsor this exhibit that looks at what is arguably one of the most turbulent and eventful decades of the 20th century.

Although the programs in this series have ended, Booth Library is filled with exhibits exploring numerous aspects of this fascinating decade as Americans experienced it — including developments in the worlds of music, literature, visual arts, science and technology, politics, and social movements.

The public is encouraged to stop by and take a look!

The 1960s from Washington D.C. & the Government Printing Office/GPO

Listen to protest music: The turbulent 60s inspired great music.
Songs like “Get Up, Stand Up! Stand up for your rights!”
“Redemption Song”
“War, What Is It Good For?”
“Mercy, Mercy Me”
“What the World Needs Now, is Love”
“Inner City Blues”
performed by Bob Marley, John Lennon, Marvin Gaye, Jackie DeShannon, and many others inspired countless socially minded people to take political action for their beliefs. The many social “causes” prevalent in the 1960s brought about “effects” in the form of these songs, some of the most inspiring music ever written in our culture.

Life is full of big questions. 

Fortunately, they don’t always demand long
answers. 

The Very Short Introductions series can be the quickest way to get up to speed on a multitude of complicated subjects from Hegel, Barthes, and Literary Theory to Capitalism, World Music and The Reagan Revolution. And because they’re published by a scholarly house like Oxford University Press, they can be trusted to hit the high spots without leaving out vital information.  Found in the stacks at Booth Library, these are some of the best primers around — and that’s the long and the short of it.

The following resources demonstrate the evolutionary thread of
environmentalism in America, specifically before Rachel Carson’s 1962 publication of
Silent Spring, and then the subsequent waves of influence this book generated and continues to generate into the 21st century. The books are featured alongside a 1960s environmental display (“Biocide: Rachel Carson and the Environmental Movement”) located in the Reference Room Corridor on the 3000 level of Booth Library.  The display, the book table, and this article publicizing them are the work of Lee Whitacre, a senior library specialist in the library’s Acquisitions Department.

Sixties Sports Legends

Posted on October 1st, 2014

The Sixties Revolution touched the arena of sports as the Games of the XVII Olympiad were televised for the first time in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.  The 1960 games also went down in history for their role in the emergence of two legendary athletes — former polio patient Wilma Rudolph, whose three gold medals in track earned her widespread acclaim as the “fastest woman in the world”, and Cassius Clay (later to be known as Muhammad Ali), who won the light-heavyweight gold in boxing.

Professional sports, too, contributed several legendary athletes:  Baseball’s Willie Mays and Sandy Koufax, basketball’s Wilt Chamberlin, and hockey’s Bobby Hull all achieved lasting fame for their athletic feats.  You may read about these and more when you visit the book display in Booth Library’s 3000 S corridor.
