What's on the Nightstand: Rena Pederson

At Interabang Books we love to ask our customers what they’re reading. We share some of their answers in What's on the Nightstand, a feature focused on what our friends in the community have been reading (or intend to).

Paranoia and Persistence: EDUCATED by Tara Westover

EDUCATED is the true story of a young woman escaping her abusive family through education. Raised in rural Idaho by her family of survivalist Mormons, Tara Westover survives brutal years working in her father’s scrap yard and on construction sites, all while never setting foot in a classroom for the first 17 years of her life. Tara’s father believes teachers to be instruments of a shadowy cabal involving the Illuminati. He distinguishes between them only by those who know that they are active tools of the Enemy and those who are unwitting drones of the perfidious enemy.

Frankenstein Turns 200

Two hundred years ago this month, a modern classic was born. FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley has captured the imaginations of generations since it was published in 1818. We all know the story, even if we haven’t read the novel: mad scientist Victor Frankenstein cobbles together a monster, made of body parts, and brings it to life with terrible consequences.

A Future That Never Arrives: Some thoughts on Matt Rasmussen’s BLACK APERTURE

There are some books that resurface: a friend finally gives back the borrowed copy, you find them under furniture, or stuffed behind others on a shelf, but when they return to you, it really feels like a return and you immediately get to rereading. When do books become a part of us? Why do some feel like we’ve always known them? We all have our own literary canon. And here’s one of mine that recently fell back into my life: Matt Rasmussen’s debut collection BLACK APERTURE.

From the Land of Saints and Scholars

As the great, great granddaughter of an Irish Immigrant, my Irish roots run as deep as the emerald moss that grows upon the Wicklow mountains. It is estimated that over 33 million Americans can trace their heritage to Ireland and the great diaspora that took place in the 1800’s. It doesn’t take St. Patrick’s Day to send my heart back to the Emerald Isle, but with that celebratory day upon us, what better time to reconnect with your Irish roots by delving in to some Irish Literature? Here are just a few to enjoy while sipping a Guinness or a spot of tea.
