Independence Day Reads

There’s something uniquely American in the celebration of Independence Day, beginning with the day we choose to commemorate. Independence is not celebrated with the anniversary of victory at Yorktown or the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Rather, it is the day of the people’s Declaration of Independence, the day the founders decided we would no longer be a colony of Britain. That stubborn self-reliance has woven itself into the very tapestry of our nation. To celebrate the revolutionary nature of our founding and our freedom, here are some of our favorites.
 

Beach Reads

We wait all year for the languid days of summer. As kids, we spent time with our friends or siblings, running amuck and spinning tales under the canopy of pecan trees and drinking from the garden hose until our moms let us back into the house for dinner. Or, if we were lucky enough, we could ride our bikes to the pool for some delicious respite from the heat.  Now, with our families and friends spread across the country, spending time on vacation at the seaside or lake during those hot months is no less precious.

Pride Recommendations

50 years have passed since the Stonewall Uprising and the start of Pride. While access to equal rights for the LGBTQIA+ community has greatly improved, suspicion and resentment still surrounds some members of the community. Because it’s important for those without other outlets to have a safe space to read and see stories that include them, this month we feature fiction and nonfiction favorites, spanning all ages, with characters who are LGBTQIA+.

Bienvenidos to our new INTERABANG Kid’s section!

 

We have had many requests for dual- language books for children since we opened our doors almost two years ago.

Here are a few of the books you can find on our shelves right now.

FURIOUS HOURS

The literary world is abuzz about Casey Cep’s book, FURIOUS HOURS, which explores Harper Lee’s final, unpublished work and the Alabama murder trial that inspired Ms. Lee to spend years investigating the case and penning pages upon pages of prose about it. Ms. Lee called her work-in-progress “The Reverend,” and it was to be the culmination of her creative career, coming seventeen years after “To Kill a Mockingbird” and twelve since publication of her friend Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood,” which she helped him research. Ms. Cep examines the racially charged trial, the enigmatic Ms.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

This month is dedicated to Mental Health Awareness. That sounds great, but what exactly does it mean? And what can we really do to help raise awareness, beat stigma, and help those who are suffering? I don't have all the answers, but I do know what helped me as a young adult struggling with mental illness, and what continues to help me...
