A conversation with Furious Flower Poetry Center Executive Director and Academic Activist, Dr. Joanne Gabbin, about the importance of black poetry and the poems she recommends we read right now.
"It wasn’t that I woke up one morning and thought this is the book I needed to write, but then it was the only book I could write. I very quickly understood there was no way for me—as Alice Waters’s daughter—to exist in the public eye without acknowledging and writing that. Rather than feel encumbered by it, how can I talk about all the wonders of this relationship?"
We brought you quite the book selection this year. Here are a few standouts we are giving (and hoping to receive!) this holiday season.
We are acknowledging this month that, like the calendar year, we also go through "seasons" of preferences--particularly when it comes to reading. While in the summers we crave lighter, airier works of fiction to the deep, enthralling stores that move us in the winter, for the month of February we are focusing on 3 memoirs that are perfect for hunkering down and fighting the cold.
There is a title for every literary fan out there: spirited novels, cookbooks and fantastic stories in children's literature are just some of the genres comprising our holiday gift list. Read on to find the perfect book for the reader in your life or, better yet, yourself.
For a lot of women, it can often feel as though stories about women in their 40s are few and far between. In her latest novel, No One Tells You This, author Glynnis MacNicol discusses the particularly difficult year in which she turned 40 and the self reflection that allowed her to realize being 40 is, actually, amazing.
Claire Dederer's latest memoir belongs on the must-read list for women of any age, for reasons both confronting and comforting. We interviewed the author on her writing process, aging and more.
Get a sneak peek at quarterlane's latest book collections, all jam-packed with dreamy winter reads. (And don't miss this season's special collaboration between quarterlane and The Fold!)
Lisa Congdon's latest book is both visually and thematically inspiring. A Glorious Freedom reminds us there is much to live and learn over the age of 40.
Our resident bookworm recommends cozying up with a diverse variety of books this autumn: a beloved chef's memoir, a searing novel on love and loss, and more.
