Honoring National Poetry Month

PantryApril is National Poetry Month and our distributed lines are publishing some must-have collections. Pantry, written by Lilah Hegnauer, was the winner of the New Southern Voices Poetry Prize from Hub City Press. The poems in Pantry begin in the tightly-packed, titular closet, but then slip beneath the material objects to explore the domestic lives that spark, seethe, and sometimes explode around them.

When All the World Is Old, released in 2012 by Lookout Books, is John Rybicki's heartbreaking account of his wife's battle with cancer, and of the life he and his young son are left to after she passes.

These collections and more poetry are available now. Buy them online or pick up a copy at your local bookstore.

Remembering the Trail of Tears with Voices of Cherokee Women

Voices of Cherokee WomenThis year marks the 175th anniversary of the Trail of Tears, the brutally forced removal of Cherokees from the southeast to western Indian Territory. Voices of Cherokee Women, edited by Carolyn Ross Johnston, features first hand accounts from the time of Cherokee removal, including the following excerpt from a petition against removal in 1817:

"Therefore, children, don’t part with any more of our lands but continue on it and enlarge your farms. Cultivate and raise corn and cotton and your mothers and sisters will make clothing for you which our father the president has recommended to us all. We don’t charge anybody for selling any lands, but we have heard such intentions of our children. But your talks become true at last; it was our desire to forewarn you all not to part with our lands.”

Voices of Cherokee Women is a compelling collection of first-person accounts by Cherokee women from the 16th century to the present and is now available. Check out the rest of the titles in our Real Voices, Real History Series.



The Governor's Lady Praised in Library Journal

The Governor's LadyRobert Inman's The Governor's Lady received a glowing review in the latest edition of Library Journal.

Reviewer Shannon Marie Robinson states: "Inman beautifully blends old-fashioned Southern storytelling with tense political drama. Readers with an interest in American politics, fierce women, or family relationships will enjoy this novel, whose strongly developed characters and plot suspense will keep them from putting this book down until the very last page."

Want to meet the author? Inman is in the middle of an extensive author tour and might soon be coming to you! Check out his tour itinerary here.

The Governor's Lady is also available as an ebook.
