This compelling mix of hard data and personal anecdote provides a clear and comprehensive analysis of how women as physicians maintain the delicate balance between work and family, how they shape the practice of medicine, and in turn, how the practice of medicine shapes these women.

“Hush My Mouth: A Southern Fried Mystery” by Cathy Pickens was given by Helen Casaus in memory of Dorothy Merrell.

“Can’t Never Tell by Cathy Pickens was given” by El Desayuno Kiwanis in memory of Dorothy Merrell.

“Finder’s Keepers” By Craig Childs. As a relic hunter, Craig Childs for decades has traveled the world searching for precious belongings that people cared for and then hid away.

In Finders Keepers, he takes us on a bold journey from the Southwest desert canyons to galleries on Fifth Avenue as he risks his life and freedom to find and preserve artifacts that hold the secrets of past civilizations.

Difficult questions lie at the heart of Child’s adventures: To whom does the past belong? Is a person a thief that steals a relic from a museum and returns it to the ruin from which it came? Just beneath the dusty surface of what most people imagine to be the staid field of archaeology, a vibrant and passionate controversy rages around these issues.

Childs investigates thieves, scientists, and contested land claims as he explores the field’s transgressions against the cultures and objects it endeavors to preserve and study.

“Wounded Warrior Handbook: A Resource Guide for Returning Veterans” By Don Philpott and Janelle Hill. Following an active-duty injury, the typical wounded soldier must complete and file 22 forms.

Figuring out what to do next and even completing tasks as seemingly easy as submitting paperwork can be overwhelming and confusing to many soldiers and their families.

The Wounded Warrior Handbook provides our injured heroes and their families with straightforward, quick answers to the questions they suddenly face and guides them through the deluge of procedures, processes, and policies they must adhere to in order to receive the care they deserve and need.

This handbook compiles information regarding medical treatment, rehabilitation, counseling, support, and transition.

The Wounded Warrior Handbook is a time-saving and life-restoring resource that helps our embattled men and women make the transition from active duty to postwar domestic life.
