Historical Non-Fiction Books
Does Your City or Region Have a Fascinating Story that needs to be told before it’s forgotten?
Yes, it does, and you can be the person to write it.
In this short book, Tyler Tichelaar, author of My Marquette and The Marquette Trilogy, talks in an interview format about how he became interested in writing both local history and regional and historical fiction and his research and writing process to bring his books to fruition.
Readers of “Creating a Local Historical Book” will learn:
Look Inside the Book
“Our committee would like to honor Tyler with this award in honor of his meticulous research, his enlightened and personal testimony about Marquette and his educational contributions to the preservation of Marquette’s history.”
“Tyler Tichelaar speaks from the heart about his love affair with the town of his birth. Join him on a nostalgic tour of one of the great small cities of America.”

Looking for Books On the Lost Generation2009-12-01 21:02:59 by skinnyboy
I'm looking for any book recommendations about the post-WWI Lost Generation, either non-fiction or historical fiction. I've read some of Virginia Woolf's books about this subject.
All Quiet On The Western Front is my favorite WWI book, and I'm looking for something that could be a sequel of sorts to that novel, set in the 1920s when the soldiers are struggling with their return back to domestic life. Thanks in advance.
I'm reorganizing my classroom library2006-08-16 13:19:37 by philateacher
I'm reorganizing my classroom library (6th grade), so I have an idea of what types of books I have enough of and what kinds I should keep an eye out for.
I would like to color code the chapter books and place them in baskets in my library. I have 8 colors and have thought of these categories (excluding reference books, which will have a shelf of their own):
2. science fiction
3. fantasy fiction
4. realistic fiction
5. historical fiction
am i missing any big categories? should i combine any of the categories? does anyone else have a better way to sort their books that worked for their class?
again, it's a 6th grade classroom.
