Love Makes a Family by Sophie Beer

Love is baking a special cake. Love is lending a helping hand. Love is reading one more book. In this exuberant board book, many different families are shown in happy activity, from an early-morning wake-up to a kiss before bed. Whether a child has two moms, two dads, one parent, or one of each, this simple preschool read-aloud demonstrates that what’s most important in each family’s life is the love the family members share.

In his first book, Feinstein, an analyst with EDENS, owner and developer of Union Market, looks at where happiness comes from and shows how each of us can lay claim to it. He provides the basics of meditation and mindfulness, emphasizing how these practices can ground us in the present moment. Once grounded and balanced, we can take off on a journey to discover our best selves. And that—is happiness.

Drawing the title for his debut collection of essays from Lil’ Wayne’s “A Milli,” Bey, a PhD candidate in English at Cornell University, uses his own experience as the basis for a groundbreaking meditation on and critique of politicized Blackness, Black feminism, and queerness. Adroitly toggling between academic and nonacademic discourse, Bey interweaves his Philadelphia upbringing and social justice work at the Audre Lorde Project with insightful examinations of Black studies and Black feminism theorists, showing how Blackness and non-normative gender don’t just challenge but actually change long-held assumptions.

Bey will be in conversation with Rahma Haji, doctoral student in the University of Maryland’s Department of Women’s Studies with an emphasis on African diasporic cultures, Afrofuturism, and performance studies.

Khanna’s important book draws on geopolitics, technology, business, and globalization to trace how Asia—led by China but extending to Saudi Arabia, Japan, the Philippines, and Indonesia—is quickly becoming the world’s dominant cultural and economic power. A Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and managing partner of FutureMap, Khanna notes that these Asian trading networks already represent some 40% of global GDP; this share is sure to rise as the 21st century becomes the Asian Century. To prepare, the West needs to drop its outdated mindset and focus on the younger leaders who are abandoning old territorial disputes and investing in the infrastructure of future digital innovation.

Johnson, a longtime Ramallah-based American editor of Jerusalem Quarterly, won the 2013 Palestinian Book award for her work on compiling Seeking Palestine. In her new book she considers the victims of conflict zones that most news reports leave out: the animals. Some of the stories reflect the inherent absurdity of war, like the one from August 2016, when Israeli police arrested a Palestinian donkey for lacking the correct paperwork. Others are tragic, such as the many zoo animals who were literally frightened to death by Israeli explosive devices. And all, from camel beauty contests to a hyena that joins a wolf pack—becoming an unlikely symbol of Middle East peace—to the work of human environmental activists, shed new light on the particular circumstances of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The author of the classic Persian cookbook Food of Life, Batmanglij grew up in Iran and was proclaimed “the goddess of Iranian cooking" by no less an authority than Yotam Ottolenghi. Her new book, the result of three years of traveling through her homeland, is a spell-binding and mouth-watering guide to the flavors and culture of Persian cuisine. Batmanglij visited every region, gathering some 250 recipes along with photos—of vendors, farmers, ancient ruins—as well as stories—of family dinners and local culinary traditions. She treats us to a wide variety of kebabs, the traditional porridge-like soup known as osh, and other outstanding dishes ranging from Azerbaijani dumpling soup to walnut and sumac meatballs to saffroned almond and pistachio baklava.

When Bonow, then a Seattle bartender, had an abortion in 2015, she thanked Planned Parenthood on her Facebook page. Then a friend of Bonow’s shared the post on Twitter. Soon other women were using social media platforms to tell their abortion stories, and a movement, #ShoutYourAbortion, came to life. In this anthology, Bonow has gathered photos, essays, and artwork from some of the hundreds of women from all across the country who have told the stories of their abortions. The contributors represent a range of ethnicities, ages, and classes; each tells a unique story, and each is unapologetic and adamant about fighting all efforts to restrict the right to a safe and legal abortion. Bonow will be in conversation with Viva Ruiz, creator of the Thank God for Abortion project and member of the pop group The Crystal Ark with Gavin Russom.

A widely published film critic, Thomson is the author of more than twenty books about cinema and TV, including Moments That Made the Movies and The Biographical Dictionary of Film, which a 2010 Sight & Sound magazine poll named the best film book of all time. His new book is a cinematic history of love and desire that doubles as a commentary on the culture of male supremacy that led to the rise—and fall—of Harvey Weinstein and others. Focusing in detail on specific films, Thomson illuminates the on- and off-screen sexuality of a wide range of actors, directors, and producers from Rudolph Valentino and Warren Beatty to Jude Law; Jean Harlow and Faye Dunaway to Nicole Kidman, showing how they helped shape our erotic imaginations and influenced private and public expressions of desire.

Originating in song, poetry is often considered an art of and from the ear. For Conley, as for other Deaf poets, however, poetry is written from the eye. Striving to be “imagistic, clear, and precise,” Conley, a professor of theatre and dance at Gallaudet University, explores both his own experience and the larger life cycles of nature, focusing on the nuances of human interaction as well as the cadences of nature’s rhythms. Complementing his words with photos—including “watergraphs” that capture the inverted reflections in pools—his work is as richly tactile as it is sharply observed.

First published in 1991, James’s book has been variously described as a screenplay-novel, an absurdist fable about racism, and a “blackadelic funk novel.” James himself declared it “a work of fiction. Every word is true.” Back in print after twenty-five years, the narrative confronts American racial stereotyping and exploitation through the story of Bubbles Brazil, a blond, racist wannabe hipster who gets kicked out of a series of private schools and ends up in a public school. As she meets people she never could have imagined—a house maid/voodoo priestess, crackheads, and one H. Rap Remus—her education becomes a surreal and outrageous trip. James—a spoken-word performance artist, author of That's Blaxploitation, and co-writer and narrator of the film The United States of Hoodoo—shakes us to our senses with an explosive mix of humor and vitriol.

When O’Meara, a screenwriter, genre film producer, and co-host of the weekly literary podcast Reading Glasses, wanted to learn more about Milicent Patrick, the woman who created the Gill-man costume head for the eponymous Creature from the Black Lagoon, she came up empty-handed. Knowing only that Patrick had been one of Disney’s first female animators, she set out to discover the rest of the story—along with why it wasn’t better known. Her book profiles a fascinating, talented woman whose achievements, when not overlooked by men, were claimed by men. O’Meara’s compelling detective work restores a valuable chapter to film history, and also suggests there’s much about women’s roles in the film industry still to be uncovered.

The last elections saw a striking increase in the number of first-time candidates for office, as well as more women, LGBTQ people, and people of color. In this collection of essays, thirty-five recent candidates for office, including Stacey Abrams, Deb Haaland, Jason Kander, Andrea Jenkins, and Michelle Lujan Grisham speak out about what moved them to run, what they learned in the process, and what they hope to accomplish. Graham, a political speechwriter who wrote for several key figures at the 2016 Democratic Convention and served as communications director for U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, has compiled a fresh, realistic, and inspiring group portrait of today’s most innovative and determined politicians.

Hawk Parable (University of Akron, $15.95)

Mills won the 2011 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry First Book Award for her collection, Tongue Lyre. Her second, awarded the 2017 Akron Poetry Prize, combines family history with larger national and international events for a powerful exploration of conscience, war, and the human impact on the natural world. The poems start with the question of Mills’s grandfather’s involvement in the Nagasaki mission; using language drawn from declassified nuclear test films, survivor accounts of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, scientific studies of bird migrations through the Nevada Test Site, and her grandfather's letters, Mills traces the emotional, environmental, and political fallout of the nuclear era.

What It Doesn’t Have to Do With (University of Georgia, $19.95)

Bernal has coordinated and taught in the creative writing program at the University of Maryland for more than ten years, meanwhile publishing poems in Blackbird, Gulf Coast, OVERSOUND, Tikkun, and other journals. In her distinctive first collection, she unleashes a wry wit to explore changing views on gender and sexuality. Drawing on a wide range of cultural references—Ezra Pound, Mark Rothko, Louise Bourgeois, and Morrissey—Bernal tests notions of the objectification of women in art and links them to narratives of personal crisis.

Kelly Forsythe

Perennial (Coffee House, $16.95)

What happens to children who experience violence in a school—a place they should be safe? Do they learn that there’s no safety? Do they carry the trauma with them forever? In her thoroughly researched and deeply felt first collection of poems, Forsythe, founder of the online journal Phantom Limb, revisits the 1999 Columbine shootings. Recounting the event from the perspectives of killers, victims, and distant bystanders, such as her younger self, Forsythe cuts through the reflexive outrage and emotional fatigue that so often characterizes our responses to school shootings. As she conveys the moment in all its shocking immediacy, she raises urgent questions about innocence, limits, and the scars such incidents leave not only on those it affects directly, but on the larger culture as well.

Abdurraqib follows the acclaimed essays of They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us with a penetrating and personal look at the band A Tribe Called Quest. Interweaving his own experiences of the music with a history of the group, open letters to the performers, and a consideration of the band’s role in the broader context of rap in the 1990s, Abdurraqib considers their creative arc—from their early days as part of the Afrocentric rap collective, the Native Tongues, through their long hiatus and reappearance—and probes the deeper meaning of their work. That this band matters is evident from their early introduction of jazz rhythms into rap through the release of We Got It from Here . . . Thank You 4 Your Service in the aftermath of the 2016 election—exactly the kind of intense, socially conscious album audiences desperately needed.

A senior fellow at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and an adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Pandith has been a key figure in American counterterrorism efforts since the George H.W. Bush administration. Drawing on her extensive experience and hundreds of interviews, she shows that despite our intensified post-9/11 fight against extremists, groups like ISIS are better able to spread their ideas, recruit members, and launch strikes than ever before. Only a paradigm shift will truly counter these organizations, Pandith believes, and she argues for an approach that will mobilize the expertise and resources of diplomats, corporate leaders, social scientists, mental health experts, and, most importantly, the global youth who are most vulnerable to extremist messages.

Pandith will be in conversation with Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter, contributing editor to the Financial Times and CEO of New America, a think ​and action ​tank dedicated to renewing America in the Digital Age.

In the late 1930s, the great surrealist painter Salvador Dalí teamed up with the Marx Brothers, writing the script of a film to be called Giraffes on Horseback Salad. MGM rejected the project and the manuscript was believed to be lost. . Then Frank, author of the Pixies oral history Fool the World, found it and, in a stroke of genius, teamed with comedian Tim Heidecker to recreate the film as a full-color graphic novel, a genre which allows perhaps more range to the original creators’ fantastic absurdity than film would have. Through mind-bending patterns, wildly shifting color schemes, and flamboyant composition, the book follows the strange attraction of an ordinary businessman—to have been played by Harpo—to a siren known as the Surrealist Woman.

Jackson, a faculty member of Columbia and New York Universities, won the Ernest Gaines Prize for Literary Excellence for his debut novel, The Residue Years. His second book is a deeply compelling memoir that both recounts his unlikely route to literary success and details the larger picture of the nation’s poverty and discrimination. Taking its title from the calculations he and his family constantly made to stay safe in a dangerous neighborhood, Jackson chronicles his upbringing as part of the small African-American community in overwhelmingly white Portland, Oregon. With a novelist’s sense of craft and characterization and a journalist’s attention to the telling detail, Jackson describes a city of drugs, violence, and poverty, charting the toll these forces take on family life. Jackson will be in conversation with Marita Golden, cofounder and president emeritus of the Hurston/Wright Foundation.

Already a noted nonfiction writer and social commentator, Washington makes his eagerly-awaited fiction debut with a fresh and dynamic portrait of Houston. Narrated by a young man growing up black, Latino, and gay, the novel captures Houston’s rich cultural diversity as well as its grittiness and poverty. Through the protagonist’s eyes we experience the effects of gentrification, watch drug dealers at work, and follow the stories of his siblings and neighbors, who include unfaithful spouses, hurricane survivors, a baseball team, and a Guatemalan teen under the protection of a drug lord. Written with deep compassion, the novel is an unflinching exploration of what it means to be part of a community. Washington will be in conversation with Nicole Chung, author of All You Can Ever Know.

In her dual biography of her parents, Riskin, a TV producer and former president of the Writers Guild of America West, gives a vivid glimpse of Golden Age Hollywood. Her mother, Fay Wray (1907-2004), played the iconic “scream queen,” Ann Darrow, in the original 1933 King Kong and her father, Robert Riskin (1897-1955), won an Oscar in 1935 for writing the screenplay for Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night. Both were part of dozens of films and had independently risen from rags to riches by the time they became a couple in 1940. Describing plots that could have come from the pair’s films, Riskin recounts Wray’s first, stormy marriage to the brilliant but hard-drinking screenwriter John Monk Saunders, and looks back on her father’s long bachelorhood, when he dated stars like Carole Lombard while developing the classic screwball comedy.

Englander burst on the literary scene in 1999 with the breathtaking stories of For the Relief of Unbearable Urges. Through a second collection and two novels, The Ministry of Special Cases and Dinner at the Center of the Earth, he’s honed his wit to an even finer, more excruciating edge. His latest novel combines his signature themes—religion, family, irreverence—for an insightful and very funny look at Larry, a secular Jew living in Brooklyn. When his father dies, Larry refuses to recite the Kaddish each night for eleven months, instead hiring someone through a web site to do it for him. Then, guilt-stricken, Larry undergoes a spiritual transformation, changes his name to Shuli, and becomes a teacher of Hebrew studies. A sly parable for the digital era, Englander’s work is also a serious exploration of traditional Jewish ideas of the soul and afterlife.
