We may have been busy with our Summer Reading Program the past few months, but your Library staff still found time to do their own reading! Here are just a few selections from our staff.
Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) was, during the last 40 years of his life, perhaps the best known man of letters in England. And in James Boswell (1740-1795), a lawyer from Scotland with a lot of free time, it seems, he found perhaps the most diligent chronicler in the field of biography.
