Dick Cheney / Steve Jobs

In the News: Dick Cheney’s long-awaited memoir hits bookstores this Tuesday, August 30. Before the FAU Libraries obtains a copy of it, take a look at some of the titles we have on the former vice-president, congressman, White House Chief of Staff, and Secretary of Defense. (“In the News” highlighted a few titles about Cheney in November 2010.)

Also In the News: Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, Inc. and Pixar, resigned from his position as Apple’s CEO due to health reasons. (“In the News” profiled the launch of the iPad in late March 2010.)
