Recommended Reads for October 2017

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched, first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and children who came face-to-face with the living and the undead. World War Z is the result.

It by Stephen King

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real. The story follows seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they first stumbled on as teenagers…an evil without a name: It. They made a promise twenty-eight years ago to reunite in the same place where they had once battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Now, children are being murdered again and their memories of that terrifying summer return as they prepare to once again battle the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers.

The Witches: Suspicion, Betrayal, & Hysteria in 1692 Salem by Stacy Schiff

The panic began early in 1692, over an exceptionally raw Massachusetts winter, when a minister's niece began to writhe and roar. Allegations of witchcraft spread quickly. Speaking loudly and emphatically, adolescent girls stood at the center of the crisis. Neighbors accused neighbors, husbands accused wives, parents and children accused one another. It ended less than a year later, but not before 19 men and women had been hanged and an elderly man crushed to death.
