 RECOMMENDATIONS

Staff picks: Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell  

Recommended by Kathleen Honchen, Library Clerk

(Audio book version) If you like the idea of learning something without feeling like you are back in a boring classroom, Sarah Vowell is the author and teacher for you. She delivers her considerable knowledge of American history with her own unique brand of humor and sarcasm. 

"...From the bestselling author of Assassination Vacation and Unfamiliar Fishes, a humorous and insightful account of the Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette--the one Frenchman we could all agree on--and an insightful portrait of a nation's idealism and its reality." - Goodreads book review

Sarah Jane Vowell is an American author, journalist, humorist, and commentator. Often referred to as a "social observer," Vowell has authored several books and is a regular contributor to the radio program This American Life on Public Radio International.

 

She was also the voice of Violet in the animated film The Incredibles.  Vowell reads all of her audiobooks herself, which is a big factor in making these audiobooks so enjoyable. This is her newest book but I can recommend all her audiobooks.
