Prez. Volume 1, Corndog-in-chief Prez. Volume 1, Corndog-in-chief / written by Mark Russel (2016 adult graphic novel, 365.43 Graphic Prez)

Invisible EmmieInvisible Emmie / Terri Libenson (2017 children’s graphic novel, J Graphic Libenson)
The lives of two middle school girls, one a quiet artist, the other a popular overachiever, intersect on a day shaped by a misdelivered note, crushes, humiliations, boredom and drama.

Sunday Reference Librarian Liz’s Pick:

Spies of Revolutionary ConnecticutSpies of revolutionary Connecticut : from Benedict Arnold to Nathan Hale / Mark Allen Baker (2014 non-fiction, 327.12 Baker)
Covert intelligence played a critical role in the American Revolution. Connecticut produced an extraordinary number of spies on both sides of the conflict, from the infamous traitor and Norwich-born Benedict Arnold to Patriot Nathan Hale, executed by the British for espionage. Spying during the Revolution entailed coded messages, early submarines with the first exploding torpedoes and the penalty of death for those caught in the act. Despite the risk, some spies even played both sides as double agents, such as Edward Bancroft, who was never caught.

As Close to Us As BreathingAs close to us as breathing : a novel / Elizabeth Poliner (2016 fiction book call# F Poliner)
In 1948, a small stretch of the Woodmont, Connecticut shoreline, affectionately named “Bagel Beach,” has long been a summer destination for Jewish families.
