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.

If you've ever wished you could go back to college without paying tuition you should try the Modern Scholar series. College professors give lectures on various subjects and you can listen from the comfort of home, or even during a long commute! Pop a disc into the CD player and you're on your way to a deeper understanding of whatever subject you choose. Find more staff picks at www.furtherreading-gcpl.blogspot.com/
