Marilena recommends "THE PUTIN MYSTIQUE"

Not a biography of Vladimir Putin, this book explores the complexities of what we used to call the “Russian Soul” of the people he is ruling. The author’s look at history, current events and interviews of famous personalities, revolutionaries, bureaucrats and ordinary citizens opens a window on the difficulties East and West encounter when trying to come to any accord.  Appropriate for Adults.

Colette recommends "BEING MORTAL: Medicine & What Matters in the End" by Atul Gawande

BEING MORTAL is a very thoughtful examination of aging and our mortality,  It emphasizes the importance of conversations:  “If your time becomes short, what is most important to you?  What is your definition of a happy purposeful life?”  People really care about what we consider a good life as we age and shift from independence to dependence- we don’t look forward to it so we don’t plan for it.  People have priorities besides just surviving and staying safe; everyone deserves to live a meaningful life, even those with disease or the frailty of aging. BEING MORTAL is sure to encourage important and needed discussions.

Recommended for adults.  Available in audiobook, e-book and print.
