JUST ARRIVED  We have biographies galore on our new-book shelf, from the scientific and the sporty to the historical and the musical.  Michael Nesmith of The Monkees looks back on his life in Infinite Tuesday, while readers can dip into Sarah Vaughan’s world of jazz in Queen of Bebop.  Ernest Hemingway’s life gets a new look in a book by Mary V. Dearborn, and you can revisit another familiar author in Jane Austen at Home.  Learn more about the Carthaginian general (but not the fictional cannibal) in Hannibal, and discover the origins of communications theory and the workings of the internet as foreseen by innovative communications specialist Claude Shannon in A Mind at Play.  A Woman’s Place is at the Top tells of pioneering mountaineer Annie Smith Peck and Defiance features the strong-willed and talented 18th and 19th century Lady Anne Barnard, while Making Contact tells the story of a woman named Jill Tarter who continues to lead the search for alien life, and Lynda Schuster narrates her own experiences as war journalist and ambassador in Dirty Wars and Polished Silver.  Far from excitement and glamor, Jim St. Germain tells his story of imprisonment and redemption in A Stone of Hope.  Finally, in a sequel to The Reason Why I Jump, Naoki Higashida explains autism from an insider’s perspective in Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8.
