As I wrote yesterday, there are two factors playing into my current book acquiring: buying textbooks for the upcoming semester and constructing my own book fair in place of the in-person MLA book fair that I missed last week. Several packages arrived yesterday containing books in these two categories.
From the “book fair”:
Ruth, John L. This Very Ground, This Crooked Affair: A Mennonite Homestead on Lenape Land. Telford, PA: Cascadia Publishing House, 2021.
Wojnarowicz, David. Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration. New York: Vintage Books, 1991.
Zoltan, Vanessa. Praying with Jane Eyre: Reflections on Reading as a Sacred Practice. New York: TarcherPerigree, 2021.
Baker, Kyle. Nat Turner. New York: Harry N. Abrams, 2008.
Keckley, Elizabeth Hobbs. Behind the Scenes, or Thirty Years a Slave, and Four Years in the White House. 1868. Hillsborough, NC: Eno Publishers, 2016.
