June 6, 2013We are so excited about Reinhard Hennig’s great review for Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point! Edited by photographer, writer, and activist Subhankar Banerjee’s Arctic Voices is a compelling collection of essays regarding threats to our Earth’s arctic.“…the diverse texts gathered in Arctic Voices…give a multifaceted insight into a region whose ecosystems have already during the past century undergone substantial change through pollution, resource exploitation and military use.”“The volume’s most outstanding feature is that it shows the Arctic not as a sublime wilderness devoid of human beings, but as a region in which people have been living for a long time, and in which contemporary developments
threaten not only nature, but in a great measure also indigenous cultures.”Check out the full review here: http://www.ecozona.eu/ index.php/journal/article/ view/342/685Arctic Voices will be published in paperback this August, with a new introduction by Dr. James Hansen.

Earlier this month, Sarah Erdreich–author of the upcoming Generation Roe (on sale March 26th, 2013)–appeared at the Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., to discuss the future of the pro-choice movement and what the next step will be for abortion rights in America. The event was broadcast on C-SPAN’s Book TV, and you can now view the entire hour-long program on Book TV’s Web site.
Erdreich has been identified as a leading pro-choice activist by Newsweek, and her incisive writings on abortion rights have been noted by Jezebel, Feministing, and the National Partnership for Women and Families. Now, in Generation Roe, Erdreich tells the true stories of those whose lives are most changed by this issue, and outlines the outrageous legal battlegrounds that have popped up across the country, all with frankness and candor. Gloria Steinem says Erdreich “replaces lies with honesty and myth with reality” in this, her first book.

Laurie Rubin, author of the memoir Do You Dream In Color?, has been everywhere this week, making appearances yesterday at the Free Library of Philadelphia and on WHYY’s Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane. Mezzo-soprano Rubin talked with Coane about her experiences as a blind singer, revealing her experiences with music directors who refused to allow her to perform in operas due to concerns over her disability.
Don’t miss her charming performance at the Free Library of Philadelphia, where she delighted crowds singing with her partner, Jenny Taira accompanying her on piano, and read an excerpt from her memoir.

January 7, 2011"The spinmeisters are playing the same record over and over, recovery, recovery, scratch, scratch, recovery’s in da house! . . . With its attendant social chaos, crime and despair, the country is sinking into an economic quicksand, yet Americans are injected daily with a massive dose of tranquilizing nonsense . . . The collapse will not be televised. Ignored and alone, each of us will experience it singly. As blemish and accusation, you will be photoshopped from the American Dream group portrait. The lower you slip, the more invisible you will be. The disconnect between what's real and what's broadcast will become even more obscene by the day." - Linh Dinh, author of Love Like Hate
