              An incredible collaboration featuring a stunning collection of Presidential homes painted by artist Adam Van Doren and introduced by David McCullough. Pre-eminent historian David McCullough and noted artist Adam Van Doren unite for an excursion to the celebrated homes of fifteen ...American presidents, past and present. The text is personal and unaffected; Van Doren visited these homes to ensure that he recorded every detail accurately, often becoming acquainted with the former presidents themselves, always trying to portray them in the human environment they created for themselves. The artwork is perceptive and revealing; he misses very little. McCullough puts the history of the homes in perspective in his lucid and perceptive prose. A gift book, both useful and beautiful, belonging in the library of anyone interested in our architectural, social, or political history.

              A unique look at an overlooked element of the American fabric-the ambitious murals that have served as the backdrops for decades of Yankee entertainment. In small-town New England, long before television and the internet, the prevailing custom was to provide your own entertainmen...t, often in the form of a performance at the local grange or Town Hall. Since there wasn't much money for costumes or props, the plays relied on all-purpose scenic backdrops-painted canvases of local scenes and interest. And they were glorious. Many of these minor masterpieces of vernacular art still survive and are presented in all their glory in this richly illustrated book celebrating the colorful and memorable painted curtains that graced the stages of countless New England towns. A remarkable team of conservators from Curtains Without Borders has overcome a century of dirt, damage, and neglect to restore hundreds of these historic theater curtains to their rightful place at the center of community life. This book presents exquisite photographs of these enormous pieces of art that have been hidden in plain sight.

              Busing Brewster
               

              Busing Brewster (Hardback)

              By Michelson, Richard; Illustrated by Roth, R. G.

              Brewster is excited to begin the first grade until his mother informs him that he will be leaving the school in his neighborhood to go to Central, the white school. Riding through the streets of Boston, Brewster and his brother are confronted with protesting adults and spiteful c...hildren, who have learned their parents' prejudices. Inside the school, Mrs. O'Grady, a kind librarian, develops a particular fondness for Brewster and dedicates herself to teaching him to read. Focusing on the personal stories that can be found within the margins of history, Michelson narrates with sensitivity to nuance and an eye to how children process these events individually and without the ideological trappings of adults. Guided by funky illustrations decidedly of the 1970s, the book highlights the potential for new friendships and greater opportunity to learn, though attentive to the personal and social consequences of forced busing for children, such as separation from friends and other familiar faces, and often a frequently hostile environment, at a critical stage in their development. Busing Brewster promotes dialogue between parents and children and provides a way in to what can be a difficult topic to approach with young children. An author's note at the end examines the story in the larger context of American history and civil rights, and has been updated to reflect on events that have transpired since its original publication in 2010.
