ISBN: 9781938160080
Availability: Special Order
Published: BOA Editions - May 7th, 2013

As an anthropologist, Adrie Kusserow’s
ethnographic poetry probes culture and globalization with poems about
Sudanese refugees based in Uganda, Sudan, and the United States,
especially the “Lost Boys of Sudan.” The poet struggles with how to
respond to suffering, poverty, displacement, and the brutal aspects of
war. Much of this exploration is based in poems in which a mother is
also bringing her family to a larger global arena.


Restrike: Reba White Williams (Burlington)

Join us in welcoming Reba White Williams, author of Restrike, to Burlington!

"A colorful start to a new art-world mystery series." -Kirkus Review

Reba White Williams has written articles for American Artist, Art and Auction, Print Quarterly, and Journal of the Print World. She served on the Print Committees of The Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum, and The Whitney Museum. She is a member of the Editorial Board of Print Quarterly, and an Honorary Keeper of American Prints at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge University. She currently lives in New York City and has recently founded the Willie Morris Award for best southern writing. She divides her time between New York, Connecticut and Palm Springs.

About the book: Cousins Coleman and Dinah Greene moved from North Carolina to New York after college to make their mark on the art world: Coleman is the editor of an influential arts magazine and Dinah is the owner of a print gallery in Greenwich Village. But their challenges are mounting as one of Coleman's writers is discovered selling story ideas to a competitor and The Greene Gallery is in the red because sales are down.
When billionaire Heyward Bain arrives with a glamorous assistant, announcing plans to fund a fine print museum, Coleman is intrigued and plans to get to know Bain and publish an article about him. Dinah hopes to sell him enough prints to save her gallery. At the same time, swindlers, attracted by Bain’s lavish spending, invade the print world to grab some of his money.
When a print dealer dies in peculiar circumstances, Coleman is suspicious, but she can’t persuade the NYPD crime investigator of a connection between the dealer’s death and Bain’s buying spree. After one of Coleman’s editors is killed and Coleman is attacked, the police must acknowledge the connection, and Coleman becomes even more determined to discover the truth about Bain. In an unforgettable final scene, Coleman risks her life to expose the last deception threatening her, her friends, and the formerly tranquil print world.

Published: Vintage - January 1st, 2013

When Frank Money joined the army to escape
his too-small world, he left behind his cherished and fragile little
sister, Cee. After the war, his shattered life has no purpose until he
hears that Cee is in danger.

Frank is a modern Odysseus returning to a 1950s America mined with
lethal pitfalls for an unwary black man. As he journeys to his native
Georgia in search of Cee, it becomes clear that their troubles began
well before their wartime separation. Together, they return to their
rural hometown of Lotus, where buried secrets are unearthed and where
Frank learns at last what it means to be a man, what it takes to heal,
and--above all--what it means to come home.

Reinventing the Chicken Coop with Matthew Wolpe (Burlington)

Over the last several years, keeping backyard chickens has become a national phenomenon. And as flocks migrate from rural homesteads to suburban and urban locales, a question arises – how can a person house one’s birds in a safe, sanitary, and aesthetically pleasing way, so as not to tick off the neighbors? Phoenix Books is proud to present Reinventing the Chicken Coop, a presentation by Matt Wolpe on building contemporary, well-designed chicken shelters for the urban and suburban enthusiast.

In their book Reinventing the Chicken Coop, Wolpe and coauthor Kevin McElroy have expanded the definition of what a coop is and can be; just as the domain of the chicken has expanded from the farm to urban and suburban backyards, Wolpe and McElroy have expanded the design of the chicken shelter from the utilitarian to a proud statement of sustainability and individuality.

As evidenced by the proliferation of community-organized “Tours de Coops” across the country, chicken-keepers are on a quest to find that perfect coop — one that can serve multiple purposes, integrate seamlessly into urban and suburban environments, and in general function better in the contemporary world. Reinventing the Chicken Coop leads their way.

Kevin McElroy and Matthew Wolpe are the owners of Just Fine Design/Build, a studio that produces original handmade furniture and small structures. Their chicken coop design Chick-in-a-Box won Editor’s Choice for Design at the Bay Area Maker Faire and was featured on the blogs of Make magazine, Farmhouse Modern, and TreeHugger. Both authors live in the Bay Area of California: McElroy in San Francisco and Wolpe in Oakland.
