2017 books 2 fertig

We’re halfway through 2017, how did that happen!? But at least on the bookish side of things, the next six months are going to be amazing. My budget is pretty small, but one can dream right?

March On

I don’t know why I’m always shocked and surprised when a new month starts. It’s not like the months are a mystery. But here I am blinking my shock that we are in March already.

I’ve been M.I.A on the blog for a while.  But the great thing about a new month is that it’s like a fresh start. You get to renew and recommit.

Solace: Writing, Refuge, and LGBTQ Women of Color

I will definitely be reading this collection. You should too. Pre-sale Oct. 1st 2016

Stephanie Andrea Allen

Solace-Cover

Deeply troubled by recent acts of violence against Black and Brown lesbian, bisexual, and trans* bodies, Solace: Writing, Refuge and LGBTQ Women of Color explores the ways in which LGBTQ women find solace: in each other, in their communities, and from within themselves, as they traverse the dangers of living as LGBTQ women of color in the United States.

Solace is a collection of writing that explores our pain, as well as our attempts to find solace in a world that seeks to destroy us. Audre Lorde writes that “We were never meant to survive,” yet here we are. What are our strategies for survival? Where do we find solace? The poetry and prose contained within Solace seeks to answer these questions.
