The Shortest Day by Jane Langton Book Summary:

Prompted by his wife, Mary, Harvard scholar/sleuth Homer Kelly looks into the suspicious death of a folk singer in this “enormously appealing” mystery (Publishers Weekly). Each year, the beautiful Sarah Bailey marks the winter solstice by organizing a pageant of drama and song for the citizens of Harvard University. Last year, the star of the show was Henry Shady, an Appalachian folk singer whose homespun charm won the eye of every young woman in Cambridge. On the eve of this year’s Revels, the singer is struck down in the street by an SUV driven by Sarah’s husband. The police dismiss it as a freak accident, but Mary Kelly, who witnessed the singer’s death, is not so sure. Her husband, Harvard professor and sometime sleuth Homer, dismisses her suspicion. But when more of the revelers suffer untimely deaths, Homer sees a pattern. Winter has gripped Cambridge, and Sarah’s husband may have been seized with murderous jealousy.

The Bundahi%sn by N.A Book Summary:

The Bundahisn, meaning primal or foundational creation, is the central Zoroastrian account of creation, cosmology, and eschatology. Compiled sometime in the ninth century CE, it is one of the most important surviving testaments to Zoroastrian literature in the Middle Persian language and to pre-Islamic Iranian culture. Despite having been composed some two millennia after the Prophet Zoroaster's revelation, it is nonetheless a concise compendium of ancient Zoroastrian knowledge that draws on and reshapes earlier layers of the tradition. Well known in the field of Iranian Studies as an essential primary source for scholars of ancient Iran's history, religions, literatures, and languages, the Bundahisn is also a great work of literature in and of itself, ranking alongside the creation myths of other ancient traditions. The book's thirty-six diverse chapters, which touch on astronomy, eschatology, zoology, medicine, and more, are composed in a variety of styles, registers, and genres, from spare lists and concise commentaries to philosophical discourses and poetic eschatological visions. This new translation, the first in English in nearly a century, highlights the aesthetic quality, literary style, and complexity and raises the profile of pre-Islamic Zoroastrian literature.

An Introduction to Popular Culture in the US by Jenn Brandt,Callie Clare Book Summary:

What is popular culture? Why study popular culture in an academic context? An Introduction to Popular Culture in the US: People, Politics, and Power introduces and explores the history and contemporary analysis of popular culture in the United States. In situating popular culture as lived experience through the activities, objects, and distractions of everyday life, the authors work to broaden the understanding of culture beyond a focus solely on media texts, taking an interdisciplinary approach to analyze American culture, its rituals, beliefs, and the objects that shape its existence. After building a foundation of the history of popular culture as an academic discipline, the book looks broadly at cultural myths and the institutional structures, genres, industries, and people that shape the mindset of popular culture in the United States. It then becomes more focused with an examination of identity, exploring the ways in which these myths and mindset are internalized, practiced, and shaped by individuals. The book concludes by connecting the broad understanding of popular culture and the unique individual experience with chapters dedicated to the objects, communities, and celebrations of everyday life. This approach to the field of study explores all matters of culture in a way that is accessible and relevant to individuals in and outside of the classroom.

Inupiat Parables by Kenneth W. Smith Book Summary:

Alaska is more than the bustling cities, oil pipeline and visiting tour boats of thousands of folk who look up from their ship-board bridge parties to note the passing verdure, who gaze in awe at spectacular peaks and quaint fishing villages. It is also home to many who have survived in a culture that has endured climactic hardship, physical isolation and social seclusion. The Inupiat culture is mature and has provided a livelihood for generations. Inupiat Parables takes you into the community of Wainwright, the Inupiat name is Olgoonik. The author served for over 30 years in Alaska and has always been and still is concerned with individuals in small communities, people who are less affected by international affairs, but more concerned with small community living. Welcome to Olgoonik. In a world that has gone-for-crazy in bigness, speed and sophistication, it is good to know that there is a place like Olgoonik where the culture that has sustained the village people for hundreds of years still determines how they shall live. Oh, there are problems living in the Arctic. Weather is always a concern, regardless of how good it gets or how bad it gets. But, human relations are very important and living the basics of life can be a very fulfilling way of life.
