The discovery likely explains the glacier’s extreme thinning and raises concern about its impact on sea level rise.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

 

Clarksville Book ReviewClarksville, TN – Once in a while when you’re in a second-hand store, you can run across a book you’ve missed when it first came out, but one that becomes a lifelong favorite. That’s what happened to me when I found “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows (The Dial Press, August, 2008).

Who could resist a book with a title like this!

The entire book is a series of letters with the central character a writer named Juliet Ashton. The initial setting is just after World War II as Juliet is setting out on a book tour for her collection of columns she wrote during the war to help keep up spirits of those at home in England.

Austin Peay State University professors Antonio Thompson, Christos Frentzos complete work on two-volume study of American military history

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The discussion of American military history can be approached in a seemingly endless variety of ways. With so many tactical, political and societal viewpoints to be considered, even the most educated scholars or enthusiastic students can become lost in a sea of information.
