Samuel G. Freedman's latest book is Breaking the Line, which reveals how the 1967 black college football season blazed a new trail for the civil rights movement even as it transformed both college and pro ball. It's a great read, chock-full of nail-biting drama, heartbreak and inspiration. Freedman will be in town on Tuesday for anyone who'd like to meet him and listen to him discuss his work.

"The Rosie Project" is a love story for those who can relate to the socially inept. Don Tillman, a professor, is searching for a wife logically and methodically when he meets Rosie who turns is life upside down in a very good way. Don learns that love is more than what can be put on paper. This is a funny and touching story as much as learning about oneself as it is about recognizing love.
