“Genascent: The Human Genome Project in Plain Words” By C.J. Canna
This book was written for thoughtful members of the public. Many fields brush up against this science, finance, law, food, international relations, medicine, everything from agriculture thru zoology. This book discusses what a logical person might want to know before using or investing in the science. The book includes particularly relevant journal articles explained here in common language. You’ll be introduced to the ethical and legal questions that were buzzing around the Genome from the start. To engage the reader it includes funny stories collected over thirty years of a research career. To make the cut the stories had to tell something about the science that the reader should know; or show something about the research environment. The author has written a trilogy of movie scripts named “Genascent: Footprints in Time” which tells the story of genetics from Gregor Mendel through1993; “Genascent II: the Living Code” covering the start-up through the completion of the sequence; and “Genascent III: So It Is Written” showing the impact the Genome has had in fighting disease. The stories in this book could not be fit into the movies.

MY BROTHER IS DIFFERENT is a wonderful book for helping young siblings cope with
having a brother or sister with AUTISM." TEMPLE GRANDIN, Author, Thinking in Pictures
MY BROTHER IS DIFFERENT by Barbara Morvay ISBN 978-0-9709582-1-1
Available from Ingram
and Baker & Taylor
Dear library director,
I am writing this email in an effort to get my book into libraries where it can help families.
My Brother is Different is a child's book about Autism
from a totally unique perspective. It is a book that will help the normal sibling deal with their Autistic brother.
A two-sided book with two covers, a book about Autism in the most unconventional sense. This book is NOT about the Autistic child per se. It focuses on the sibling of the Autistic child, the so-called “normal” child, who sees the world from a different perspective. The parents section provides straight talk and deals honestly with the effect their Autistic child is having on their other child, the normal one.
Flip the book over and it becomes a child’s book with beautiful illustrations that support the realistic subject matter. The thoughts, feelings and fears of the sibling are expressed. The book becomes a vehicle for acceptance through affirmations that replace negative thoughts with positive, reinforcing statements. Children’s hospitals and pediatricians’ offices are using the book as an informative, therapeutic and healing guide for families.
TEMPLE GRANDIN has just recommended the book and provided a quote for the second printing!
Florida State University FSU has just approved the book for its masters level classes in disabilities.
The book is endorsed by Autism Speaks, the largest Autism Organization is the USA and is recommended as a resource on their website. Exceptional Parent Magazine also endorses and recommends the book on their website. It is used and recommended by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Advocare Pediatrics of Southern New Jersey and Pennslyvania.
The book is endorsed by Autism CANADA, Autism UNITED KINGDOM, Autism AUSTRALIA, Autism NEW ZEALAND, Autism DENMARK, Autism IRELAND, Autism SOUTH AFRICA, and Autism INDIA
Thank you for considering the book for your library.

Please get Peter Joseph Swanson’s MERLIN’S CHARGE. It is a fun adventure about a young Arthur that many teenagers would also enjoy.

When the news broke this past week about new recommendations for flu vaccines for kids, Good Morning America interviewed the author of a new book called "Germ Proof Your Kids - The Complete Guide to Protecting Your Family from Infections". I looked it up and it looks like a really good book for parents. Friday I learned our day care center has a copy in the office, but there's a waiting list to read it during day care hours!
Please consider bringing it into the library (the ISBN number is 978-1-55581-427-4).
Thanks very much,

I don't know if you take suggestions for getting new books, but I read a review of a science fiction novel called Better Than Chocolate by Bruce Golden on the Science Fiction Revu website: http://www.sfrevu.com/php/Review-id.php?id=5821 It sounds like an interesting mix of science fiction and satire.

After participating in the Book Expo 2007 with several of your librarians in NYC I would like commend the professional manner in which they represented your organization. They do a wonderful job in how they approach their responsibilites and showed how much they really care for their patrons in their opinions and comments. I consider it an honor that I was invited and look forward to future events with them.
One a side note, a bit of advice:
1) Always be nice to these ladies, especially if you take them to Red Lobster OR if they have to go to the bathroom!!
2) Always, and I mean always, walk softly and take a Rhonda wherever you go!!
3) Always walk behind them as you never know what might hit you from behind!!

I thought the website ExplorePAHistory.com would be useful for the county libraries. It's run by WITF and has a lot of information for kids and adults.
