The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. 1939. Nazi Germany. Death has never been busier and is going to become even more so. Orphaned Liesel Meminger is living outside of Munich, scratching out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist-books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, Liesel learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
Two hundred years ago this year, during the War of 1812, the British army occupied Washington, setting fire to many public buildings, including the White House and the Capitol. It was on August 24, 1814, that approximately 4.000 troops entered the city, causing most of the residents to flee. A warning was dispatched to First Lady Dolley Madison who managed to escape across the Potomac River with a portrait of George Washington in tow. This was the only time since the American Revolution that a foreign power has captured the United States capital.
