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.

Happily Ever Afters Are For Black People Too

Two of my favorite things happen in February - Black History Month and Valentine's Day.  This year, the theme of Black History Month is THE BLACK FAMILY: REPRESENTATION, IDENTITY, AND DIVERSITY, which makes this a perfect time to showcase romance books written by/featuring Black people. These authors have done a magnificent job of putting their character into plotlines that demonstrate the complexities of Black life while not focusing on their pain and still giving them their happily ever after.

The Next American Reckoning

On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, we witnessed one of the scariest moments of our lives. A frenzied mob overtook the U.S. Capitol building in an attempt to stop a critical vote that would confirm the results of a fair and free election. It was called “unprecedented.” It was called “unheard of.” It was called “unexpected.” 

Signed Titles Galore!

With in-person author tours and signings still suspended, we continue to be deeply grateful to the mutliple authors and publishers who have worked with Interabang to secure signed copies of so many notable books to sell -- both adult and children's titles! Check out our list below of signed books we currently have in stock; they make a perfect gift for the holidays! Supplies are limited, of course, and availability cannot be guaranteed, so please do not hesitate if any of these appeal to you.

Happily Ever After

Business was booming at our Preston Royal bookstore last fall. Interabang was welcoming a lineup of much-loved authors, the store was gaining popularity every day, and new and exciting books filled our shelves as we looked towards the holidays. How unprepared we were for what was to come!

MOST ANTICIPATED READS FOR FALL 2020

Fall is always a huge time for the publishing industry. However, this is shaping up to be an even larger season than usual. Many releases were delayed from spring because of the pandemic, so September and October will bring a mountain of exciting books. How to choose what to read? We leaned on Lori, the Interabang Book Buyer, and asked for a list of 10 upcoming releases,  both fiction and non-fiction, to keep an eye out for. Just 10! Yet from Jodi Picoult to Jerry Seinfeld, you’ll find a variety even on this short list.

Mrs. Laura Bush's 2020 Summer Reading List

Now, more than ever, it is important to keep children engaged in reading. This summer reading list includes picks for the youngest readers through middle schoolers – with topics ranging from race and kindness, to staying true to yourself, to the special bond of sisterhood — ensuring all readers are kept entertained throughout the summer and into the school year.

Books For Youngest Readers

Writing Books Worth Reading

First off, I am not a writer by trade or for pleasure. I don’t write for fun in my spare time, I don’t participate in National Novel Writing Month in November, and I certainly don’t have million word treatises hanging around my hard drive. That being said, I sincerely believe in the value of the written word, for how can I not? As a lover, consumer and purveyor of words, I dearly believe that the concisely conveyed thought is its own reward. 

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 …
