#‎FlashbackFriday‬: In an NPR interview with Alex Chadwick, former IUP director John Gallman said that when he first got the box with the 'Any Day' manuscript by Henry Mitchell, he wouldn't look inside because he thought the book wasn't right for the Press's list. However, once Gallman did take the manuscript out of the box, he became hooked on Mitchell's essays and decided to publish them after all. Gallman compared Mitchell to E.B. White. Mitchell wrote for the Washington Post from the early 1970s to 1991. He was best known for his gardening columns, some of which have been gathered in two beloved books, 'The Essential Earthman' and 'One Man’s Garden.' In addition to his gardening columns, Mitchell also wrote feature stories and for years had a general interest column that appeared on Fridays under the title 'Any Day.' This book collects the most enduring of those brilliant columns. http://ow.ly/i/bCxy7

PopMatters calls Sex and Unisex "an ambitious, creative, and thought-provoking study that offers much to consider." http://ht.ly/OZBrJ
Sex and Unisex, a history of fashion trends offers insight into changing notions of gender – and raises the possibility that the concept has outlived its usefulness.

"[F]or the general reader, the author has succeeded in bringing together three centuries of history into a single, engaging book. Touching America’s History: From the Pequot War Through WWII is a demonstration of how scholarship can combine material culture and family genealogy in a fashion that will attract readers interested in early America, the Civil War period, and even the twentieth century." http://ht.ly/P6J6D

"'Well-Tempered Woodwinds: Friedrich von Huene and the Making of Early Music in a New World,' should help fill in many gaps in a local history that’s often related only through anecdotes." Read more about IUP author Geoffrey Burgess’s new book and the Boston Early Music Festival in this Boston Globe article: http://ht.ly/OUE9g
There’s nothing like a concentrated festival atmosphere to focus an audience’s enthusiasm — and for pre-classical music, there is also nothing quite like the Boston Early Music Festival. Once every other year, fans from around the country and many from abroad gather for a celebratory week of concerts and opera. This year’s festival opened with an artistic jolt on Sunday, and at the time of this writing had reached its halfway point with no sign o...
