"History Smashers: Christopher Columbus and the Taino People," by Kate Messner (J 970.01), is the youth book-of-the-month.

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, and discovered America? Not exactly. He never set foot in America, but actually landed on islands in the Caribbean and along the coast of South America. Both of these areas had long been populated by Indigenous peoples, including the Taino. And his real name was Christoforo Colombo. Learn the true story of Christopher Columbus.

"Canary Girls: a novel," by Jennifer Chiaverini (F CHI), is the adult book-of-the-month.

Inspired by the true story of English women working in the munitions industry during WW I. Thousands of women answered their countries call for help during WW I. Often working grueling shifts and seven days a week, some women were building explosive munitions with little or no protective equipment. They began suffering unexplained illnesses, and a common symptom was a lurid yellow hue of their skin, earning them the nickname “Canary Girls.“ While the Canary Girls formed a football (soccer) team, and others work to identify the cause of their illnesses, tragedy takes it’s toll on the Canary Girls.
