Presidents' Day Reading

Justin Wm. Moyer's article "44 Presidents, 43 Biographies, One Surprising Take-Away" in the Washington Post features dedicated readers who have set a goal to read one biography about each president. The real challenge comes in deciding which biography to read among dozens for some presidents or tracking down obscure volumes about others. It's a reward in retirement for some readers, while for others it's a life-long pursuit.

Books about U.S. Presidents are on display in the LMC and available through eRead Illinois for your device.

2016 YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults

"Focusing on the life of Daniel Ellsberg, Sheinkin offers a fascinating portrait of a brilliant, idealistic man and his decision to leak the Pentagon Papers, revealing unsavory government secrets about America's involvement in Vietnam. A product of the Cold War, Ellsberg was intrigued by questions of risk and crisis decision making, leading to his career as a think-tank analyst and eventual role as government whistle-blower...Ellsberg's time spent with patrols in Vietnam is particularly well written, relaying the palpable atmosphere of hopeless ambiguity that strongly influenced Ellsberg's decisions. Sheinkin's extensive research includes black-and-white period photographs and author interviews with Ellsberg and his wife. Most Dangerous is thorough and challenging, and readers are left to determine whether Ellsberg...is a hero or a traitor. Powerful and thought-provoking."--Kara Dean, Booklist
