As 2017 continues, may we remember the words on our Statue of Liberty, New Colossus, penned by Emma Lazarus in 1883.
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

I strongly recommend We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter, a fictionalized account of her ancestor’s experiences in WWII. The Hearts of Men by Nickolas Butler is brilliant.
We are always happy to pre-order for you.
