Taxidermy and Tractors: A Look at Small Town Literature

Living in East Texas for a few years, I learned to appreciate the small towns that make up the bulk of the region. Some felt abandoned, save for a small cafe serving frozen foods in decorative dishes, a grade school cafeteria menu for adults passing through. I felt a nostalgia for something I never really had, but felt as though I should.

Don’t Miss These Great August Books!

Yes, fall is here. We’ve turned another page on the calendar. But before you put the wonderful books that came out this summer in your rearview mirror, wait! There are a number of August releases that didn’t receive a lot of publicity but should not be missed. These titles flew “under the radar” so to speak, and they are definitely worth the read. Here’s a look at some of these great August titles!

Children’s Author Carol Weston on Love and Loss in SPEED OF LIFE

If anyone has the appropriate mix of expertise and sensitivity to write a children’s book about grief, specifically grief over the loss of a parent, it’s probably Carol Weston. Not only is Weston the author of 16 popular books for children, including titles like GIRLTALK: ALL THE STUFF YOUR SISTER NEVER TOLD YOU and the fun-loving AVA AND PIP, she’s also a longtime advice columnist for Girl’s Life magazine, where she answers emails and letters from girls across America about everything from what it’s like to have your first crush to why your best friend doesn’t like you anymore.

Ann Patchett: An Appreciation

Okay, I’ll admit it: I hadn’t read any Ann Patchett until last summer, when a friend of mine sent me an urgent text. You HAVE to read this book, she said. It’s amazing. You would love it. The book: Ann Patchett’s collection of essays, THIS IS THE STORY OF A HAPPY MARRIAGE, and since my friend has never steered my wrong, I immediately went out in search of the book.

Anna LeBaron on THE POLYGAMIST’S DAUGHTER

In THE POLYGAMIST’S DAUGHTER, Anna LeBaron recounts the harrowing story of growing up the daughter of Ervil LeBaron, the infamous cult leader responsible for the murders of more than twenty individuals. Anna endured unimaginable horrors, including the murders of several close family members, child labor and life on the run. Her memoir, published in March by Tyndale, is riveting and inspiring. Anna, who lives in Dallas, will sign copies of the book at Interabang Books at 7PM on August 17. We asked her a few questions about herself and the book in preparation for the event.
