Books Acquired Recently

Loewen, Mary Ann, ed. Finding Father: Stories from Mennonite Daughters. Regina, SK: University of Regina Press, 2019.

I pre-ordered this book from amazon.ca as soon as I could because it includes a number of chapters by authors involved with Mennonite literature. It came in the mail earlier this week.

Weinberg, Jonathan. Pier Groups: Art and Sex Along the New York Waterfront. University Park: Pennsylvania State University Press, 2019.

I got a promotional email about this memoir about gay sex in New York City from the publisher and ordered it immediately. It includes a number of lovely photographs, many of them explicit.

Books Acquired Recently

I am trying to read as much queer literature and theory as I can this summer. The three following books fall under this rubric.

Butler, Alec. Rough Paradise. Toronto: Quattro Books, 2014.

Child, Abigail. Mouth to Mouth. Brooklyn: Eoagh Books, 2016.

Rodríguez, Juana María. Sexual Futures, Queer Gestures, and Other Latina Longings. New York: New York University Press, 2014.

This past weekend I attended the Crossing the Line: Women of Anabaptist Traditions Encounter Borders and Boundaries conference at Eastern Mennonite University. There was a small bookfair and I bought two books which I had signed by the authors (I already own many of the books that were on sale).

Loewen, Mary Ann. Sons and Mothers: Stories from Mennonite Men. Regina, SK: University of Regina Press, 2015.

Yoder, Anita Hooley. Circles of Sisterhood: A History of Mission, Service, and Fellowship in Mennonite Women’s Organizations. Harrisonburg, VA: Herald Press, 2017.
