June is Pride Month

At Interabang Books, we support equal rights for all, and “all” surely includes the LGBTQ persons in our community – and indeed, among our staff. While it might seem mainstream today to find such representation in many levels of government, not to mention inclusion in entertainment and advertising, these are recent developments. In the long view of history, these are new stories. That’s why it’s important to feature new books that address the full spectrum of stories told by LGBTQ authors: tales of hope, heroism, faith, family, love, struggle, and success.

In Memory of Eric Carle

The world has lost Eric Carle, who has brought so much joy to so many through the years. What we have gained from him will live on for generations to come. The author and illustrator of over 70 books, there are few who haven’t loved at least one of his books in their own childhood or parenthood. Last night after hearing the news of his passing, I found the book on my shelf that was all three of my children’s favorite book, well over 30 years old, ragged and worn from the many times young hands held that book, THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR.

Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone, and the Rise of YA High Fantasy

By now, if you have a Netflix subscription, you’ve probably seen an ad for the new Shadow and Bone series. Originally based on the Grishaverse books, a young adult high fantasy series by Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone has exploded with popularity, with reviewers calling it the “new Game of Thrones” and “dark fantasy at its finest.” But Leigh Bardugo is just one of many incredible writers in this subgenre of YA.

Interabang’s Featured Poet: Kim Addonizio

For National Poetry Month, Interabang selected one poet to single out and this year we chose Kim Addonizio. You’ll find a brief description of her aesthetic followed by a list of her works we have at the store.

Essential Poetry

To celebrate National Poetry Month this year, Interabang Books curated a list of what we deem essential collections of poems our customers should have in their home libraries. The genre of poetry is often overlooked yet offers diverse styles and aesthetics. You may be unsure where to start or even intimidated by the vast choices; rest assured this list comprises classic and contemporary titles that have and will have staying power. You’ll return to these again and again, eager to share them with other booklovers. Enjoy browsing this list below or come in and flip through these in person.

In Memory of Beverly Cleary

The world has recently lost one of our most iconic authors of books that have brought joy to children’s lives. Beverly Cleary recently died at the age of 104, a beautifully long life for someone who will live on forever in the hearts of her readers.

Honoring Larry McMurtry

“It ain’t dying I’m talking about, it’s living. I doubt it matters where you die, but it matters where you live.”
― Larry McMurtry, Lonesome Dove (spoken by Augustus McCrae)

WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH: KID’S BOOKS ABOUT WOMEN THAT WILL INSPIRE AND DELIGHT

There has never been a time when there are so many books about inspiring women who have and will pave a path of opportunity, hope, resilience and strength for those of us that follow. Some of these inspiring women you may know of, but many may be new to you as they were to me.  I am thrilled that these great authors have chosen to tell their stories so that we can all learn from them and pass on the lessons and strength that have changed the world. Here is a selection of just some of the wonderful kid’s books to help you celebrate Women’s History Month.
 

The Roaring 20s

It’s the Roaring 20s! Glamour! Parties! Booze! Existential dread as society spirals closer and closer to depression! Wait, what? 

There’s no better time to celebrate the books and history of the 1920s, especially with F. Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal work on the 1920s THE GREAT GATSBY now available in public domain. Here at Interabang, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite books from and about the era, plus some books on making fabulous drinks to go along with the reads. We hope you enjoy them!
 

BLACK HISTORY MONTH FOR KIDS

The theme for Black History Month 2021 is “The Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity.” The family is one of the most important support systems we have in our society, and it can provide the first chance to introduce children to ideas, strengths, and opportunities that can help shape the rest of their lives. The family can also be a safe haven and a source of love and support, a beacon in a child’s world. A family can be as small as a child and single parent or as large as a community.
