The Bomber Mafia by Malcolm Gladwell

A Dream, a Temptation, and the Longest Night of the Second World War // The story of a Dutch genius and his homemade computer, a band of brothers in central Alabama, a British psychopath, and pyromaniac chemists at Harvard created one of the greatest moral challenges in modern American history. The bombing of Tokyo was the deadliest night of the war and cost thousands of civilian lives, but spared even more by averting a planned US invasion. In The Bomber Mafia, Gladwell asks, “Was it worth it?”


Dare to Make History by Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson & Monique Lamoureux-Morando

Chasing a Dream and Fighting for Equity // Dare to Make History is the story of two courageous and talented women who weren’t willing to accept anything less than being treated as equals. On their journey to a gold medal in women’s ice hockey, they became role models for generations before and after them.


SEL from the Start by Sara E. Rimm-Kaufman

Social and Emotional Learning Solutions: Building Skills in K-5 // Teachers are trained to manage misbehavior in the classroom, but receive little guidance about how to cultivate positive, prosocial behavior. This handy guide breaks down instruction of these skills into small, sequenced steps, making it easy to foster students’ skills from the start of school and build on them as the year progresses.


Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey

A memoir filled with stories, outlaw wisdom, and lessons learned the hard way. Matthew McConaughey has been in this life for fifty years, been trying to work out its riddle for fortytwo, and been keeping diaries of clues to that riddle for the last thirty-five. This is fifty years of his sights and scenes, beauties of brutalities, and trying to dance between the raindrops.
