The Lincoln Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill America's 16th President⁠—and Why It Failed by Brad Meltzer & Josh Mensch

"The Lincoln Conspiracy is...relentlessly fun to read. Meltzer and Mensch are refreshingly unpretentious authors who prove gifted at providing essential context to the main storyline ― they deftly paint a picture of 19th-century America, taking deep dives into Lincoln's life and the prevailing attitudes toward race and politics at the time. It's an expertly crafted book that seems sure to delight readers with an interest in lesser-known episodes of American history." --- NPR review

The World According to Humphrey by Betty G. Birney

Why We Swim by Bonnie Tsui

"Bonnie Tsui’s Why We Swim is a love letter to swimming . . . In the tradition of memoir writers like Rebecca Solnit, Tsui examines the history of swimming as a sport, a survival skill, and even a martial art . . . Her hybrid memoir and history book traces swimming’s roots around the globe while also looking at how a swim can be a meditative, transformative, and deeply personal activity.” -- Alta
