Sarah Vowell is one America's great voices. She has a thing for history and pop culture and writes essays about them with a snarky humor that will make you actually laugh out loud. The Mascenic Learning Commons now has copies of all of her books including Lafeyette in These Somewhat United States, The Partly Cloudy Patriot, and The Wordy Shipmates. The Wordy Shipmates is especially awesome since it brings her keen sense of humor and superb historical skills to bear on the Pilgrims. It's really good!
