{A way of walking in the world.}

In which a man calls a woman about a bookstore, Mr. Kwame Alexander wants more chefs in his literary kitchen, and her ladyship, the editor, wants to be able to go outside.

I love indie bookstores because. . .
"They are fascinating."
--- Michiko, in South Carolina

" "It's the same ingredients in our kitchen as everyone else's: we want to publish books for children that are smart and fun, that inform and inspire, that help children imagine a better world. My goal is just to make sure there are more chefs in the kitchen, more voices in the room" ." --Kwame Alexander

The books by her ladyship, the editor's chair during the cold, wet days of late winter tend to be of the nature-writing kind. She is longing to step out in her garden, but is deterred by the chilly rain. So she reads, instead, about other people finding beauty in other places.  

At the moment, the book closest to had is this one: Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry. It came to her via one of those ubiquitous book lists her ladyship finds so addictive. In this case a list from Outside Magazine: Women Writing About the Wild: 25 Essential Authors. At least a dozen of which her ladyship had never read.

Black Nature"The first tree whose story I cared to discover," writes editor Camille T. Dungy in the introduction, "grows through the filtration pumps at the edge of an abandoned swimming pool in a Lynchburg, Virginia, city park. In the last 1960s, a group of black children and community leaders staged a swim-in at this pool. Rather than desegregate  this public facility, the city drained the water and replaced it with dirt."

Her ladyship grew up in a conservation-minded family. Nature was something to be cherished and preserved. It was a place of wonder and connection, not rejection or repression. "I didn't start writing poetry until late in my freshman year," says the poet Sean Hill after reminiscing on his early fascination with animals, "but once I started, it became a way of being and seeing and making sense of the world around me--a way of walking in the world.

This is ultimately why her ladyship is so driven to read -- it is a way of walking in the world, even on the coldest, rainiest of days.

Read Independently! And shop local.


her ladyship, the editor



Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book

Noteworthy poetry and prose from her ladyship's bedside reading stack.

Black Nature

What There Was

Pine, catalpa, pin oak, persimmon,
but not tree.

Hummingbird, hoot owl, martin, crow,
but not bird.

Cannas, honeysuckle, cockscomb, rose,
but not flower.

Wood smoke, corn, dust, outhouse,
but not stench.

A spider spinning in a rain barrel,
the silver dipper by the back porch,
tadpoles shimmying against a concrete bank,
but not silence.

A cotton row, a bucket lowered into a well,
a red dirt road, a winging crow,
but not distance.

A rooster crowing, cows lowing in the evening,
wasps humming beneath the eaves, hounds
baying, hot grease, but not music.

My mother running away at fifteen,
my grandmother lifting a truck to save a life,
an uncle at Pearl Harbor, Webster sitting
at the back of the bus when he looked as white
as they did, but not stories.

The entrails of a slaughtered cow, the child born
with a goat's face, the cousin laid on a railroad
track, the fire that burned it all, but not death.

This poem, a snuff tin sated with the hair
of all our dead, my mother's nighttime talks
with her dead father, my great-grandmother's
clothes passed down, passed down, but not memory.

 
--Janice N. Harrington, in Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry, edited by Camille T. Dungy (University of Georgia Press, 2009) 9780820334318

The Lubecker "The life and work of Lou Andreas-Salome has interested me for many years and, after writing several character sketches based upon elements of Lou's personality, intellectual life and relationship to her admirers, I began to contextualize them within a broad historical outline, which led to the development of other characters to capture some of her ideas and the milieu in which she lived."

Read This! Books with Street Cred

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers


This Narrow Space by Elisha WaldmanThis Narrow Space is incredibly well written, honest, and compelling! While dealing with some very delicate issues, namely the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and life-threatening pediatric illness, Dr. Waldman manages to express his observations and views without voicing any obnoxious political opinions! He is idealistic, yet humble; brilliant, yet ever eager to seek and to learn. He speaks of everyone with respect. I went into this book interested in the cultural and medical experiences of an accomplished physician; I came out blown away by the reflections of a profoundly gifted writer.

This Narrow Space by Elisha Waldman ($25.95*, Schocken Books), recommended by Vero Beach Book Center, Vero Beach, FL.

 



Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
This was a big staff favorite last year. Nearly the whole staff read it! Great to be able to sell it in paperback this season. David and Adele seem like a perfect couple but when Louise, David's secretary, starts looking at their relationship harder, secrets begin to emerge. Everything you want in a thriller with a twist at the end. You'll get the hashtag associated with the release #WTFThatEnding! Oh. And it doesn't have "Girl" in the title. Bonus!

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough ($15.99*, Flatiron Books), recommended by Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA.

 

 



Blood and Sand by C. V. Wyk
Attia is the last of her warrior people after the Romans conquered her land. Now she's a slave, given to Xanthus, a champion gladiator, as a reward for his victories in the arena. Attia has vowed to fight the Romans until she gains her freedom or dies trying, but she doesn't count on Xanthus, a fellow slave, treating her with such care and gentleness. As the two form a relationship that goes beyond their shared bonds, Attia finds herself fighting for Xanthus as much as herself. This book will appeal to fans of strong, fierce female characters, and though there's no magic, fantasy fans will have much to love in the world of the ancient Romans.

Blood and Sand by C. V. Wyk ($17.99*, Tor Teen), recommended by Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC.

 



Penguins Don't Wear Sweaters! by Marikka Tamura, Daniel Rieley
As adorable as it is a poignant signpost for kids and adults that the taking care of the planet and its inhabitants seems sometimes far-fetched and near impossible, but worthwhile because of imagination and effort.

Penguins Don't Wear Sweaters! by Marikka Tamura, Daniel Rieley ($16.99*, Nancy Paulsen Books), recommended by Square Books, Oxford, MS.

Thomas Pierce reads from Hall of Small Mammals

"The book wasn't supposed to be funny."

The Okra Pick of the Week

The AfterlivesA love story that asks: what happens after we die? The debut novel from National Book Award 5 Under 35 Winner and author of the "ridiculously good" (New York Times) collection Hall of Small Mammals.

Jim Byrd died. Technically. For a few minutes. The diagnosis: heart attack at age thirty. Revived with no memory of any tunnels, lights, or angels, Jim wonders what—if anything—awaits us on the other side.

Then a ghost shows up. Maybe. Jim and his new wife, Annie, find themselves tangling with holograms, psychics, messages from the beyond, and a machine that connects the living and the dead. As Jim and Annie journey through history and fumble through faith, they confront the specter of loss that looms for anyone who dares to fall in love. Funny, fiercely original, and gracefully moving, The Afterlives will haunt you. In a good way.

The Afterlives by Thomas Pierce | Riverhead Books | 9781594632532
