A tale only DC Black Label and Brian Azzarello can tell. Told over the span of one night, Joker tells the story of one night of revenge as The Joker violently takes back what was stolen from the Riddler, Two-Face, Killer Croc, and the Penguin.
We have a new book in our After Class collection that is perfect for everyone. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed by Lori Gottlieb is a fantastic memoir that I read on vacation this summer. While a book about psychotherapy may not seem like a typical vacation book, it is fascinating, funny, and super readable (it’s even set to become a television drama). Gottlieb became a psychotherapist after several career changes. When she experienced a crisis in her personal life, a therapist friend suggested, “maybe you should talk to someone”. The book alternates with stories about how she became a therapist, her relationships with her patients, and her relationship with her therapist. As author A.J. Jacobs wrote: “Here are some people who might benefit from Lori Gottlieb’s illuminating new book: therapists, people who have ever been in therapy, people who have ever been in relationships, people who have ever experienced emotions. In other words, everyone.”
If you are interested in learning more about this book, here are a couple of interviews with the author:

Tomorrow marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist assault on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Flight 93. The attacks claimed the lives of 2,977 people.
The MVCC library has an extensive collection of material that may help you understand the initial attack and “a tragedy that had long-lasting effects. New York, and the world, has not been the same since the events of September 11, 2001.”
This last August, the Commonwealth of Virginia celebrated
the four hundredth anniversary of slaves arriving to this country. Some even
want to date the birth of the United States with this significant event.
Certainly, slavery has been a huge factor in our history.
The New York Times, for its part, has begun “The 1619
Project” with its printing of an issue of its magazine on August 18. Very few
aspects of American life have not been touched by the advent of the ship that
arrived at Point Comfort in what was then the British colony of Virginia.
Check out the Virginia commemoration here and check out the New York Times Magazine from our newspaper section of the periodicals shelves by the café.
