Week 5: May 25 – May 31
FREAKLING by Lana Krumwiede, Narrated by Nick Podehl (Brilliance Audio)
Taemon has always known he’s a bit different. But in the walled city of Deliverance, where everyone possesses a form of telekinesis known as psi, being different is dangerous. Being different can get you labeled a freakling. Or worse, see you banished to the Powerless Colony, where even the simplest tasks, like getting dressed or turning on the lights, must be done by hand.

BOY by Anna Ziegler, Performed by Sarah Drew, John Getz, Travis Johns, Amy Pietz, and Bobby Steggert (L.A. Theatre Works)
Anna Ziegler’s Boy is a powerful statement about sexual identity and the mystery of what makes us who we are. After a baby boy is seriously injured in an accident, a doctor persuades his parents to raise the child as a girl. As the child grows up, the child—known as Samantha and Adam at different times—faces an extraordinary challenge to carve out a place in the world.

If you want to request something you DON’T find in our catalog, try searching the NH Union Public Access Catalog or NHU-PAC (link on the left). You can check to see if what you want is available anywhere in other NH libraries. Note that it WILL tell you about UNH, but it WON’T tell you what Dartmouth has. If you can’t find it, send us an  e-mail with the title, author if available, format (book, DVD, CD), publishing date if you know it. If you have the time, tell us how you heard about it. We’ll call you when it’s in or to tell you that we can’t get it for you, usually the former.
