Explanation of the Book:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

Finalist for the 2020 Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction | One of Time Magazines's 100 Must-Read Books of 2020 | Longlisted for the 2020 Porchlight Business Book Awards "An entertaining quest to trace the origins and implications of the names of the roads on which we reside." —Sarah Vowell, The New York Times Book Review When most people think about street addresses, if they think of them at all, it is in their capacity to ensure that the postman can deliver mail or a traveler won’t get lost. But street addresses were not invented to help you find your way; they were created to find you. In many parts of the world, your address can reveal your race and class. In this wide-ranging and remarkable book, Deirdre Mask looks at the fate of streets named after Martin Luther King Jr., the wayfinding means of ancient Romans, and how Nazis haunt the streets of modern Germany. The flipside of having an address is not having one, and we also see what that means for millions of people today, including those who live in the slums of Kolkata and on the streets of London. Filled with fascinating people and histories, The Address Book illuminates the complex and sometimes hidden stories behind street names and their power to name, to hide, to decide who counts, who doesn’t—and why.

Explanation of the Book:

What happens when you're stuck in your house with nothing to do? Lucy can't play with her friends and she can't go outside. When she discovers that her mom is making her a new mask, her creativity is sparked. Lucy loves masks. They feed her lively imagination, which sends her to her toy box full of costumes and to wild worlds of make-believe adventure. With her mask, Lucy becomes a pirate, a queen, a superhero and more. She doesn't realize that the mask her mom is making is not a costume mask at all but a Covid-19 mask, and that it will make her a real-life superhero who can help save the world. In the unsettling world brought about by the coronavirus, husband and wife team Lisa Sirkis Thompson and John Thompson bring a light-hearted touch to the serious subject of social distance and personal protection, as seen through the eyes of an imaginative little girl. As she thinks about what a mask (at least, her understanding of a mask) enables her to do, Lucy transforms her playroom into wildly fantastic environments, far beyond the walls of her house. For young kids trying to understand a new world of masks and isolation, and for parents searching for stories of comfort and reassurance during the pandemic, Lucy's Mask is a welcome new addition to reading time. A portion of proceeds from sales of Lucy's Mask will be donated to frontline workers and first responders.
