Holiday Books for Kids

The Holidays are upon us, and we have a vast selection of books to celebrate all the wonderful ways that we come together to spend these special days. From old favorites that have become familiar traditions, to creative modern tales, we have something for everyone.
Here are just a few of my favorites.
 

Happiness!

This is such a happy week for all of us at Interabang Books, as we begin a new chapter in our new location just a month after our store was destroyed in a tornado. We are filling our shelves with wonderful books that we are so excited to share with all of our customers. To celebrate the joy that we feel, I have gathered together a list of Children’s books that will bring joy and put a smile on readers of all ages. Come on in to the store, and we would love to share many more joyous ideas!

...And They Lived Happily Ever After: A Story of Resilience

The line above is how we often think a children’s story ends. I love a happy ending too, but in the aftermath of the tornado, I think perhaps it is more important to look at the journey rather than the end result and focus on the sometimes frightening, often challenging, and at times downright awful things that life can throw our way. These challenges present opportunities for children to grow in their resilience, a quality that will take them far in life and teach important lessons, coping skills and patience.

A Message To Our Loyal Customers

Dear loyal friends of Interabang,

All of us at the store are so deeply touched by the outpouring of support we have received from the Dallas community. The offers to help have been coming from all over the metroplex and the country and we can assure you that WE WILL BE BACK--AND SOON!

#MeToo: The Survivor's Cry For Justice

Fewer than 1% of rapes lead to felony convictions.

One in 3 women experience sexual assault in their lifetime. 

84% of men with histories of having been sexually abused (as documented by social service agencies, which means the case was serious) do not consider themselves victims of abuse.

One in two transgender individuals are sexually abused or assaulted at some point in their lives.

National Book Awards Finalists Announced

The National Book Awards were established in 1950 to celebrate the best writing in America. Since 1989, they have been overseen by the National Book Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to celebrate the best literature in America, expand its audience, and ensure that books have a prominent place in American culture. Although other categories have been recognized in the past, the Awards currently honors the best Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Translated Literature, and Young People’s Literature published each year.

The New Wild West

I will let those working on doctoral theses at UT or SMU determine whether the Western genre had its renaissance with Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove or Cormac McCarthy’s All the Pretty Horses. Those fights are too esoteric for me, and like all academic fights, probably all the more vicious because the stakes are so small.

Marion Winik at Interabang Books 9/26

Interabang Books is thrilled to be hosting author Marion Winik on Thursday, September 26 at 6:00 p.m., in conversation with Lori Feathers to discuss The Big Book of the Dead.
