I hadn’t, but the package had that distinct feel. Books! I ripped it open and out slid 2 copies of 12 Incredible Facts about the Cuban Missile Crisis. Somehow I had missed the birth of my most recent book baby which came out in August.
This one if from 12 Story Library and is one of 8 books in their “Turning Points in US History” series. In addition to the book itself, you can visit the blog and read up on recent related events including a project to restore Hemmingway’s home. Additional links include a video, web resources of various kinds, and (my favorite) security Tweets. At the moments the Tweets are about Kenya and China and not Cuba.
Now if you’ll escuse me, I have a book baby to (re)read.
