Make This Season the Summer of LONESOME DOVE

What books should be on every Texans’ shelves? The question can best be bandied about while sitting around with friends enjoying a couple of Shiners, or perhaps a Tito’s and tonic with a twist. But since we’re here …

Antiracism for Kids

Our conscientiousness has been once more awakened to the reality of racism and inequality in our country. This past week has been one of much personal and public reflection and the emotions stirred by that process of anger, sadness and helplessness. I think often about how children feel about what they are seeing and hearing right now and how difficult it is for parents, teachers and other adults to talk to our children about racism and the active opposition to it that is antiracism. One of the things that gives me hope are the words of Nelson Mandela, 

The Shadow of What Happened Stays: An Interview With Lee Martin on His New Novel 

In November of 2009 I walked into an art gallery in downtown Nacogdoches where writer Lee Martin was giving a reading. I had not heard of him and though I was mostly interested in poetry at the time, it felt like the right place to be. And it was. Martin read to a packed house from his novel THE BRIGHT FOREVER, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and once he finished, everyone rushed for a copy. It was stunning. For someone singularly interested in poetry, I was suddenly holding a novel in my hands, wanting to know the ending. That’s what a great writer can do, startle you.

The Return of a Texas Classic

In November 2017, The Wall Street Journal published a superlative review of Laura Wilson’s WATT MATTHEWS OF LAMBSHEAD, which had recently been issued in a new edition. In that review, Stephen Harrigan, the historian and author of BIG WONDERFUL THING: A HISTORY OF TEXAS, wrote,

Books that Transport Us: Nancy's Reading List for Indagare

In a time when travel seems impossible for now, those who wish to travel have turned to reading to be transported to different worlds. Nancy says, “Although we’re still ‘sheltering in place’ and longing for the days of easier travel and adventure, books can allow our imaginations to soar." As a member of travel group Indagare, she knows better than anyone what travel means to people.  Here, she and floor manager Brian W are sharing the books they believe will “satisfy your wanderlust while temporarily grounded. We hope you will find some good escapes!”

Karen Blumenthal - In Memorium

As Dallas and the entire literary world mourn the loss of author Karen Blumenthal, Interabang Books mourns the loss of a dear friend of our store. Karen was one of the first to visit our children’s section when we opened our doors in 2017. It was immediately clear that Karen had a passion and dedication to sharing stories that needed to be told, and as the children’s book buyer I wanted to put her books in the hands of our young readers. I appreciate so much her honesty in tackling tough subjects with truth and compassion.

Children's Book Week

For me, every week is children’s book week, but for over 100 years, this week has been celebrated as “Children’s Book Week” around the country. There is no better time to read to a child, read with a child, or read a children’s book yourself.Most of the great lessons in life can be found within the pages of the beautiful array of children’s books that are in the world today.

Mothers' Day is May 10!

Mother’s Day is but a few short weeks away and travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, or concerns about visiting an older parent, may preclude us from actually seeing our moms on this special day. Instead, send her some love in book form by ordering online through our website or send her a gift certificate.

POETRY PAIRINGS

As a poetry reader, I get asked by many of our customers how to get into it. There’s a fear of not understanding, of intimidation, of inaccessibility, of not knowing where to start. I think a lot of this uncertainty stems from how we were introduced to poetry by high school teachers and college professors, equally intimidated. I had the pleasure of corresponding with one of our regulars who reached out wanting to explore the possibilities of poetry but was plagued by similar fears. Over a couple of emails, he became excited at the prospect of taking on something brand new.
