    Tuesday, May 21 at 6:00 pm

    Onion River Press and Phoenix Books invite you to join in the launch celebration of Goes Without Saying, pictograms and pop-culture combined in a collection of brain-teasing visual puns by renowned icon designer, Jory Raphael.

  • The Five Hundred Year Rebellion: Indigenous Movements and the Decolonization of History in Bolivia *Book Launch*

    Thursday, May 16 at 7:00 pm

    Join Benjamin Dangl to celebrate the launch of his new book, The Five Hundred Year Rebellion.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  After centuries of colonial domination and a twentieth century riddled with dictatorships, indigenous peoples in Bolivia embarked upon a social and political struggle that would change the country forever. As part of that project activists took control of their own history, starting in the 1960s by reaching back to oral traditions and then forward to new forms of print and broadcast media. This book tells the fascinating story of how indigenous Bolivians recovered and popularized histories of past rebellions, political models, and leaders, using them to build movements for rights, land, autonomy, and political power.

  • Trump,Trump, Trump: The March of Folly

    Tuesday, May 07 at 7:00 pm

    Join Onion River Press and Phoenix Books Burlington for the launch of Susan Ohanian's new book, Trump, Trump, Trump: The March of Folly, a clever and meticulously thought-out poetic rebuttal to the absurdity of the current president.

    ABOUT THE BOOK: From giving his second-grade teacher a black eye to insulting the grieving parents of a military hero, the rollicking verse in this book presents a Donald Trump profile of bombast, babes, and bankruptcies. Details of Trump, his progeny and current political cohorts, characterized by greed and deceit, are verified by engrossing news accounts. The facts are grim, the humor captivating.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Susan Ohanian, a longtime teacher and writer, is the author of...
