If you look glance through the reviews for Girlhood by Melissa Febos, you’ll see praise after praise – and for good reason. Febos’s deep dive into the female experience is a true gift for all readers, and might even be considered required reading by some! We loved helping Bloomsbury spread the word about this powerful essay collection.
Baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson once said, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” In 42 Today: Jackie Robinson and His Legacy, we get an in depth look at the important life of Robinson himself, both on and off the field. We were thrilled to help NYU Press spread the word about this essay compilation exploring the legendary baseball icon!
One of my favorite cities is New York City. Typically I’m there visiting with you lovely folks all throughout the year, but it’s been way too long since I’ve been back. I miss it so much! Luckily, we have books to transport us to our favorite places during this pandemic. Kevin Dann’s Enchanted New York: A Journey along Broadway through Manhattan’s Magical Past is the perfect escape. We were thrilled to help NYU Press with this mystical read!
Summer is nearly here and I can’t wait to be near water again. I love everything about it – swimming laps, jumping into the ocean, kayaking down rivers – you name it! (except lakes. there’s just something about swimming in lakes that creeps me out!). Author Bonnie Tsui points out that humans, unlike other animals that are drawn to water, are not natural-born swimmers. We must be taught. Why? And why do we love it so much? Her new book, Why We Swim, takes a deep dive into this and so much more. We were thrilled to help Algonquin Books promote this unforgettable “love letter to water.”
