Latest From the Library

No Cape Required

Tue., Mar. 14
When I was younger, I had this "bookazine" about famous women in history. It featured the Hollywood legends and award-winning singers that you would expect in that sort of thing but I loved reading the parts about women like Mata Hari, Marie Curie, and the other ladies who took tremendous risks to do things they were told they would never be able to achieve. This Women's History month, I wanted to challenge myself to find more of those kind of superwomen: the ones who dared to dream big and do amazing things, all without tights or a cape.

Exploring Wakanda

Thu., Feb. 23
Captain American: Civil War was my formal introduction to T'Challa and his role as king of the African nation Wakanda, along with his role as the Black Panther. I certainly knew of the character but my knowledge of his backstory was slim. Chadwick Boseman's portrayal was intriguing (as were the awesome ladies serving as his guards) and I wanted to know more. Luckily, Marvel was smart enough to figure that there would be plenty of curious readers like me. They were also smart enough to hire some amazing writers, like Ta-Nehisi Coates, Roxane Gay, and Yona Harvey, for a new run in the series.
