Ccuriosityuriosity is a quality that we like to see in our library, in students and adults alike, and so this title, Curiosity, by Alberto Manguel is a perfect way to start the new school year, with the art of asking questions and exploring answers…  In each chapter of his book, the famously inquisitive and well-read Alberto Manguel tackles a variety of difficult questions: Who am I? What is language? Where is our place? How are we different? Why do things happen? What can we possess? What comes next?…

Among the many fictional or mythical characters that readers meet on this journey through the history of mankind are Eve, Pandora, Ulysses and Ebenezer Scrooge, as well as a host of real scholars, religious figures, authors, poets, artists, philosophers and even economists.

It is worth noting that one of the book’s charms is the presence of numerous unusual illustrations. Curiosity, 377 pages, 814.54 MAN.
