Liberty Frye and the Emperor's Tomb
J.L. McCreedy
In 1871, pirates roam the South Seas, mystics hide in shape-shifting caves, and the crew members of the Liberté are very, very far from home. Almost 150 years far, to be slightly more precise, and their last hope of returning to their own time hinges on an invisible wizard … dwelling somewhere on a mountaintop in China … who may or may not hold the secrets to time travel. So, yeah. It’s complicated. Also, do witches and wizards even get along? It’s a tricky question, and one that Liberty Frye—a newbie witch with decidedly unpredictable powers—isn’t eager to sort out. It could get awkward. Join Libby, her best friend Ginny, and their motley crew consisting of Uncle Frank, a pet goose, a cantankerous World War II pilot and a temperamental robot on their quest to find a way back home. Success is anything but certain. After all, things tend to go awry when Libby is around….

Lee Lawrie's Prairie Deco
Gregory Paul Harm
Here is the story behind one of America's most prolific-yet least known artists of the 20th Century. Lee Lawrie created architectural sculptures on buildings for more than 70 years, in 23 states and at least 3 foreign countries. Yet due to his humility, he never sought celebrity, and consequently, most art historians have never heard of him.  This is the story of his largest job, the multitude of sculptures at the Nebraska State Capitol, his role as a collaborator with the architect, and how this project all came together and occupied more than 14 years of his life. The book also explains that his art helps to convey the purpose of the building, teaching the citizens about the institutions of government the European Settlers brought with them into the new land, and paying homage to the Native American Plains Indians they had displaced.  It also provides lessons on the development of law, Western Civilization and Democracy. It is written in a conversational style that is easily accessible to anyone from middle school up through colleges.
