No funny Native Women? (wrong) Tiffany Midge is hilarious

Image
Why is there no Native woman David Sedaris? Or Native Anne Lamott? Humor categories in publishing are packed with books by funny women and humorous sociocultural-political commentary--but no Native women. There are presumably more important concerns in Indian Country. More important than humor? Among the Diné/Navajo, a ceremony is held in honor of a baby's first laugh. While the context is different, it nonetheless reminds us that laughter is precious, even sacred. Bury My Heart at Chuck E. Cheese's is a powerful and compelling collection of Tiffany Midge's musings on life, politics, and identity as a Native woman in America. Artfully blending sly humor, social commentary, and meditations on love and loss, Midge weaves short, stand-alone musings into a memoir that stares down colonialism while chastising hipsters for abusing pumpkin spice. She explains why she does not like pussy hats, mercilessly dismantles pretendians, and confesses her ow

BLUE HAND BOOKS HAS OPENED AN AFFILIATE SHOP ON BOOKSHOP go look!    **we will be adding our book titles asap More often than not, when people buy books online, they do so by clicking little thumbnails of novels and essay collections on Amazon’s website. Those thumbnails then materialize as physical copies on their doorsteps in a matter of days. Easy-peasy. The online retailer is the most dominant force in American bookselling today, accounting for over 90 percent of ebooks and audiobooks, and around 42 to 45 percent of print sales, according to BookStat. Into this fray jumps a new online retailer, Bookshop, which is betting that people will see the value in choosing to buy somewhere else—at a business meant to give independent booksellers a chance to grab back some of the market share.  “It's not really about disrupting an industry,” CEO Andy Hunter says. “It's about reinforcing an industry. Bookshop is about pulling back from the disruptive influence of Amazon.” GOOD NEWS!

  For Immediate Release  PAPERBACK and EBOOK is available now!  Davy Crockett’s legend reimagined Greenfield, Massachusetts [2020]   Is it possible Davy Crockett didn't die at the Alamo? Blue Hand Books has just released a new historical fiction “CROCKETT’s GOLD” by one of their most popular authors, John Christian Hopkins (Narragansett) who looks at the legend.   “This is the author’s seventh book, published on his September wedding anniversary! Hopkins has brilliantly reimagined the Davy Crockett legend and how the story ends,” according to publisher Trace Hentz.   “If you love westerns, this story is driven with plenty of colorful characters,” Hentz said. Hopkins writes that Centennial Brown left his Tennessee home to seek his fortune in the western lands, but when an old family friend needs help Brown can’t refuse.   But J.W. Crockett’s request isn’t a simple one: He wants Brown to carry a $20,000 ransom across the wild Texas frontier past outlaws, Indians and ruthles

GIVING VOICE TO INDIGENOUS CHILDREN: Spotlight on Rebecca Thomas (Mi’kmaw)

Image
The author’s picture book helps Indigenous children see themselves in familiar stories   Sponsored by Annick Press P icture books help children learn about their identity, navigate new situations, and embrace themselves through relatable characters who are facing new challenges. If someone is not represented in books, those lessons can be more difficult to internalize. To expand these opportunities for Indigenous children, whose stories and unique challenges are underrepresented in picture books, Rebecca Thomas created Swift Fox All Along , the story of a young girl who meets her Mi’kmaw family for the first time after growing up offreserve. "Representation is crucial for young Indigenous people," Thomas says. "I never saw anyone who looked like me or had a similar experience growing up represented in books, movies, or TV." Those of her books that did include Indigenous people often
