This week's features include "Frozen in Time: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II," by Mitchell Zuckoff.
Frozen in Time is a gripping true story of survival, bravery and honor in the vast Arctic wilderness during World War II, from the author of New York Times bestseller, "Lost in Shangri-La."
On November 5, 1942, a U.S. cargo plane slammed into the Greenland Ice Cap.
Four days later, the B-17 assigned to the search-and-rescue mission became lost in a blinding storm and also crashed. Miraculously, all nine men on board survived, and the U.S. military launched a daring rescue operation.
Also featured is "Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel" (e-book), by Lauren Graham.
From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of TV series "Gilmore Girls" and "Parenthood," comes a witty, charming and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead - and keep it together - in New York City.
It's January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing "important" work. Will she keep it together?
Another feature is the DVD "Hyde Park on Hudson."
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, portrayed by actor Bill Murray, is spending another summer at Hyde Park in upper New York State.
Distant cousin and near neighbor Daisy (Laura Linney) is summoned to the president's house to - well, we're not sure at first, except to keep FDR company in some vague way, maybe take his mind off the worries of global statesmanship.
This sounds innocuous, or maybe it doesn't, especially as we become aware that Franklin is a man who enjoys showing his stamp collection to women other than his wife Eleanor (the excellent Olivia Williams).
