November is known for many things - National American Indian Heritage Month, Election Day, Veteran’s Day, the onset of Daylight Savings Time and, of course, Thanksgiving. Having survived what was, for many, a challenging year, the prevailing sentiment at having reached this final fall month is simple gratitude. One of the many things for which we are continually grateful is the appearance of new books on the shelves - in all their glorious variety.
