  1. It’s really interesting to see the topics that authors pick; I was fascinated by the scope of the research for the Bernstein book. And Benedict Arnold as a subject for young readers – who would have thought? By the way, I just finished reading a superb graphic novel about Marie Curie – RADIOACTIVE – which I found to be highly original and not the standard comic book approach. It all goes to show that a talented author can make nonfiction can as enthralling as any novel.
