New titles in the Browsing Collection: Graphic novels and new biographies

Posted on: Feb 3, 2009 @ 9:38:12 am

Have you ever noticed the library's Browsing Collection? It's located in Infusion, on the main (2nd) floor of the main library, on shelves surrounding the plasma screen television.

Several graphic novels are now part of the library's Browsing Collection, including Art Spiegelmans Breakdowns : Portrait of the Artist As a Young %@*! which has his Pulitzer Prize-inning story Maus, and Ultimate Iron Man II by Orson Scott Card. Well-known graphic novel author Alan Moore teams up with artist Dave Gibbons for Watchman and Laurel K. Hamilton gives us Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter : Guilty Pleasures.

New biographies in the Browsing Collection include Deconstructing Sammy : Music, Money, Madness, and the Mob which explores how such a talented and successful man as Sammy Davis, Jr. died broke. On the flip side is Mr. Playboy : Hugh Hefner and the American Dream which details the life of an untalented and unremarkable man who has managed to live a wonderful life. Other notables include Ronald Reagan (The Reagan I Knew by William F. Buckley), Marlon Brando (Somebody : The Reckless Life and Remarkable Career of Marlon Brando), Michelle Obama (Michelle : A Biography), Stephen King (Haunted Heart : The Life and Times of Stephen King), and Neil Gaiman (Prince of Stories : The Many Worlds of Neil Gaiman).
