We are heartened by all who, in the face of losing so much after Sandy, have taken the time to return their books—in whatever condition, and just as equally moved by their eagerness to find something new to check out!

NILDA, as a pioneering novel, captures the unique cultural experiences of New York’s Puerto Ricans in the 1940’s and therefore secures a solid place in the history of our literature as such. It still resonates decades later because its cultural depictions of family, love, individual pride, and resilience in the face of hardship still matter.

You guys, I might barf. My book is here! It’s “out” now, and available for purchase from the publisher, Microcosm, or from Amazon, and maybe other places too. I’ve also got a couple boxes of copies all for myself, so I’m going to bring some to the reading tomorrow and I think I’ll put some up on my etsy shop as well. They look so pretty, I’m really excited.

Be sure to pick up a copy of White Elephants, the new book from Philly zinester Katie Haegele. (Librarians: purchase it via Microcosm for discount pricing on large orders.)

Yes indeed!

Andrew Carnegie built an impressive 2,509 libraries around the turn of the 20th century. Now Rick Brooks and Todd Bol are on a mission to top his total with their two-foot by two-foot Little Free Libraries.

The diminutive, birdhouse-like libraries, which Brooks and Bol began installing in Hudson and Madison, Wisconsin, in 2009, are typically made of wood and Plexiglas and are designed to hold about 20 books for community members to borrow and enjoy. Offerings include anything from Russian novels and gardening guides to French cookbooks and Dr. Seuss.
