Great New Books!

I’d Die for You by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Written in his characteristically beautiful, sharp, and surprising language, exploring themes both familiar and fresh, these stories provide new insight into the bold and uncompromising arc of Fitzgerald’s career. I’d Die For You is a collection of the last remaining unpublished and uncollected short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, edited by Anne Margaret Daniel. Fitzgerald did not design the stories here as a collection. Most were submitted individually to major magazines during the 1930s and accepted for publication during Fitzgerald’s lifetime, but were never printed. Some were written as movie scenarios and sent to studios or producers, but not filmed. Others are stories that could not be sold because their subject matter or style departed from what editors expected of Fitzgerald. They date from the earliest days of Fitzgerald’s career to the last. They come from various sources, from libraries to private collections, including those of Fitzgerald’s family. This work is a revealing, intimate look at Fitzgerald’s creative process that shows him to be a writer working at the fore of modern literature—in all its developing complexities.

Two Paths by John Kasich

When Ohio Governor John Kasich ran for president, his powerful message of hope and togetherness struck a chord with American voters. To be sure, the full story of the 2016 Presidential race will be written over time. But to understand what it was to be on the front lines of one of the most divisive and corrosive campaign battlegrounds in history, readers won’t find a richer, more thoughtful firsthand account than this one―a frank, refreshing assessment of the American dynamic and a clear path we might follow toward a more promising tomorrow. As Governor Kasich reminds us in these pages, America is great because America is good―and because Americans have stayed true to who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible.

Libraries = Information!

Here are some backyard dangers that could affect your furry friends. Gardening Know How explains many dogs like to chew on and even eat mulch. But that can be pretty dangerous. Cocoa mulch, specifically, contains an ingredient called theobromine. The compound smells great to your dog but is toxic to him. Other types of mulch, such as those made from pine, cedar, and hemlock, are less toxic to dogs. But they still pose a choking hazard. Dogs can also have an allergic reaction to mulch. Bone meal and blood meal, claims The Pet Poison Helpline, that gardeners use to naturally increase the nitrogen content of their soil, can be just as poisonous as commercial alternatives. Blood meal can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and severe pancreatitis. Bone meal ingested in large amounts “forms a large cement-like bowling ball foreign body in the stomach — which can cause an obstruction in the gastrointestinal tract — resulting in possible surgery to remove it.” It's great to let your pet enjoy the backyard but be mindful of hidden dangers.
