What We're Reading



 "In her new novel, Caleb's Crossing, Geraldine Brooks once again
  takes a shard of little-known history and brings it vividly to life.
  In1665, a young man from Martha's Vineyard became the first
  American Indian graduate from Harvard College. From the few
  facts that survive of this extraordinary life, Brooks creates a
  luminous tale of passion and belief, magic and adventure." Viking

  Be aware, the racism of the 17th century is hard to take.
