Nonfiction Large Print
Jesus: a Biography From a Believer” by Paul Johnson (2010) Few figures have had such an influence on history as Jesus of Nazareth. His teachings have inspired discussion, arguments, even war, and yet few have ever held forth as movingly on the need for peace, forgiveness, and mercy. In his intelligent and conversational style, Paul Johnson distills the life of this complex subject into a succinct, highly readable work - the ideal match of a major historian with a major subject.

First Family: Abigail and John” by Joseph Ellis (2010) John and Abigail Adams left an indelible and remarkably preserved portrait of their lives together in their personal correspondence: both Adamses were prolific letter writers (although John conceded that Abigail was clearly the more gifted of the two), and over the years they exchanged more than twelve hundred letters. Joseph J. Ellis distills this unprecedented and unsurpassed record to give us an account both intimate and panoramic; part biography, part political history, and part love story.

The Truth About Psychics” by Sylvia Browne (2010) A new book from the celebrity psychic traces the history of spirituality, and explains what's true, what's not, and how to tell the difference.

Growing Up Laughing: My Story and the Story of Funny” by Marlo Thomas (2010) For as long as Marlo Thomas can remember, she's lived with laughter. Born to comedy royalty--TV and nightclub star Danny Thomas--she grew up among legendary funny men, carved much of her career in comedy and, to this day, surrounds herself with people who love and live to make others laugh. In this long-awaited memoir, Thomas takes us on a funny and heartwarming adventure
