Reading by the numbers… 920

bio.jpg  The Nichols Library does not use the Dewey Class for biography (920).   Lives of notable personages can be found at the end of the history section under  Biography.  Recent additions include Jefferson by John Boles, which reminds us why the “architect of American liberty” doesn’t take a backseat to Hamilton; and Thoreau by Laura Walls,  the life New England’s most noted naturalist Transcendentalist  and activist (he even inspired a song).  Books people write about themselves are found under Memoirs, which is where you can find Hillbilly Elegy by J D Vance and Giant of the Senate by Al Franken.
