New & Notable Non-Fiction

Theresa Flores was a 15-year-old girl  when she was abducted by a fellow student and entered into human trafficking – all while living with her parents one street over in an upper-class neighborhood in Detroit, a few blocks away from her high school. Her book “The Slave Across the Street: The True Story of How an American Teen Survived the World of Human Trafficking,” serves as a reminder that female sex trafficking is not a foreign phenomenon, but a tragedy that happens in the U.S. on a daily basis.

The White Rose was a group of students in Nazi Germany, appalled by Adolf Hitler’s mass slaughter of Germin citizens and determined to resist his regime at any cost. The group’s origins, significance, and its extraordinary members – willing to sacrifice everything for freedom – are recounted in Russell Freedman’s “We Will Not Be Silent: The White Rose Student Resistance Movement That Defied Adolf Hitler,” and details the bravery of the young people who fought Germany’s Nazi regime from within.

The pioneering female journalist Nellie Bly became a household name in late nineteenth-century America, and readers followed her enthralling career as she performed “stunt journalism” that raised awareness of political corruption, poverty and human rights abuses. The journalistic stunt that skyrocketed her to fame is retold in this vivid biography “Ten Days a Madwoman: The Daring Life and Turbulent Times of the Original ‘Girl’ Reporter Nellie Bly“: pretending to be insane, she was committed to the notorious asylum on Blackwell’s Island, and wrote a shocking expose of the clinic’s horrific treatment of its patients.
