Explora is an interface that offers simple searches of a collection of magazine and newspaper articles, essays, and primary sources, appropriate for homework and covering every school subject. Each profile will search sources at the appropriate school level. There is also an Explora geared toward adult researchers and college students with the same simple-search features.
In addition to being easy to use, you can also access Explora on a mobile device, get topic ideas and suggestions, create a profile and save your research, get citation help, and many other useful features.

"The Dinner" by Herman Koch
It begins with dinner at a high-end restaurant in Amsterdam. Two brothers, Paul and Serge, and their wives meet to discuss their teenage sons. It is quickly apparent this is no ordinary discussion. What have the cousins done? What is to be done about it? Slowly the tension builds and the reader becomes anxious as the story unfolds. The ending is a stunner!
