A Review and Preview
December 29, 2010 Leave a comment
2010 brought us a year of great books, just to name a few:
We took our readers to the front lines of Endangered Species Act battles; published our first graphic novel, Trickster; told the story of Buffalo Bill, America’s first celebrity; got cooking with recipes from the Mitsitam Cafe; studied the bookshelves of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson; and celebrated the history and rebirth of the great Rust Belt City. As 2010 comes to an end, there’s much to look forward to in the new year, including a new crop of titles! Here’s a sneak peek at what’s coming in 2011:
