    “An enthralling light emanates from the center of her poetry that reveals a life lived fully in love, laughter, joy, and sorrows overcome. Madeleine Kunin carries and divines her lineage and history with the kind of insight that is spectacularly fresh and tender. A hardwired sense of beauty throbs throughout the poems. ” —Major Jackson, author of Roll Deep, The Absurd Man, among others, and host of “The Slowdown”

  • Book Launch Celebration

    Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00 pm

    Taking its title from Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, Leslie Sainz’s Have You Been Long Enough at Table explores the personal and historical tragedies of the Cuban American experience through a distinctly feminine lens. Formally diverse with echoes of Spanish throughout, this debut collection critiques power and patriarchy as weaponized by the governments of the United States and the Republic of Cuba. In investigating the realities of displacement and inherited exile, Sainz honors her imagined past, present, and future as a result of the “revolution within the revolution”—the emancipation of Cuban women.

    Please join us at Phoenix Books Burlington to celebrate the release of Thea Lewis' new book, True Crime Stories of Burlington, Vermont.

    Burlington has long been known as the shining jewel in Vermont's crown, but a current of darkness flows beneath this charming port on Lake Champlain. There is a sordid side to the city that top-ten lists routinely call " one of the country's most livable cities," with stories of dirty cops, notorious ladies of the night, knife wielding psychopaths, lovers off the deep end and famous serial killers.

    Despite being shy and modest (her actual words), Aparna Nancherla has a lot to say. So much so that she wrote a whole dang book about how shy and modest she is.  But that wasn't enough for her. Oh no no no. When asked to do a book tour, she said, "Actually, what if I just do standup? And sort of throw books at people as they're trying to leave?"  And honestly, all her stuffed animals agents got so excited about it they threw a bunch of papers in the air like at NASA when the rocket is safe. And so, here it is. A book tour featuring mostly standup.

    Unreliable Narrator is a collection of essays that uses Aparna’s signature...
