We recently acquired several hundred books on the American Civil War. A highlight of the collection is a number of titles reflecting the role of women during the war. Examples include: "The War the Women Lived: Female Voices from the Confederate South," Crowns of Thorns and Glory: Mary Todd Lincoln and Varina Howell Davis, " and "Dear Ellen Bee: A Civil War Scrapbook of Two Union Spies."
We are pleased to offer a recent publication by John Vito, formerly of O'Bagelo's. Both John and O'Bagelo's were lunchtime destinations until John's kidney failure diagnosis required him to close. John has combined his experience with kidney disease and his love and knowledge of food and its preparation in his book, "Cooking for Your Kidneys: Recipes, Nutrition, and Food Science for Chronic Kidney Disease." An important book for all who want to keep thier kidneys healthy or to deal with existing kidney disease.
