YOU ARE WHAT YOU READ

Laura is hanging on to summer. Here are two books that have stuck with her. “These books are not new, but both are perspectives on our region, Long Island Sound, and the Hudson River Valley, which will make you want to explore and know more about these amazing waterways. First is The Hudson, A History, by Tom Lewis. What I didn’t know was that the Hudson River was the engine behind the development of our country. Albany was the most important city during the 1800’s, and when Lincoln was campaigning for President, Albany was the place he needed the votes, because industry and westward expansion was at its utmost. Not only were artists mesmerized by the river’s landscape and beauty; industrialists and inventors were captured by its potential which, in turn, fueled the emerging region into the powerhouse it still is today. The story about Long Island Sound is beautifully rendered in Tom Andersen’s This Fine Piece of Water: An Environmental History of Long Island Sound. From the Indians, to pirates, to the colonies fighting for independence, to the present day city expansions and pollution; this is the story about how the Sound is coming back thanks to the efforts of environmental watch groups. It is a strongly written account of the history of our failures and our successes. This is a must-read.”

You Are What You Read is our “Staff Recommends” GONE WILD and features recommendations from Darien Library staff members. And you don’t have to live in Darien to receive an email with our top picks!

I love love “This Fine Piece of Water”- I own it, of course, and it was helpful in my oceanography class my first year at Smith. Of course, the fact that I am in love with Long Island Sound and in love with marine science may have something to do with my love of the book…but EVERYONE should read it! :)

Things that happen to me when I try and leave a message on my psychiatrist’s answering machine…

I leave part of a message, then it cuts me off saying to “re-record/listen to message”/etc. etc. so I “re-record” with an even shorter message because I’m cut off a SECOND time, so I “re-record” and it cuts me off AGAIN like a second after starting….

so now I don’t know how many messages she got/what she thinks/if she even heard my name in the message/etc. and more anxiety after all

Teen Movies: 8tracks Collection
