Month of October

The month of October is pretty busy! Halloween isn’t the only thing in October. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, LGBT History month and Emotional Intelligence Awareness Month to name a few. As always, these books in the picture are only a few but we have more on our shelves here at Richard Burges.

Some quick facts about these issues:

  • 1 in 8 U.S. women, and 1 in 1000 U.S. men will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.
  • Coming Out Day  is on October 11.
  • Emotional intelligence can be learned. Through a process called “plasticity,” the brain changes as individuals practice new emotional intelligence strategies
